^ that's a cool collection. I still have my argoflex seventy five that was my grampa's he gave me when I was a little kid. I just still having it.

I used to collect old alarm clocks but I had to kick the habit, it was addictive and I was spending too much. (I love the sound of clocks ticking)

I like going on little trips for 1 or 2 days. That's really an expensive interest: the transport, shopping, hotel, and restaurants...
Anyway I think it's a good way to spend your hard earned.

I've traveled all over the place this year to see Nels Cline play guitar. I've seen him play six times with Wilco, nine times with his jazz trio, and a few times with other groups. It's been worth every penny and every minute spent in transit, though. He's an amazing musician and a super nice guy.

Dude, it's ok. There's no shame in these things today. With the acid to burn those warts off, and the right medication you'll be as good as new in no time.

I just feel bad for all of those cheap prostitutes I've had my ways with over the years now.

Of course, this comes as no surprise.

Ack----my book is already up to $202, with 3 1/2 days left on ebay. Granted, other copies of it (it was limited to a print run of 2,500) have sold in the last 3 years for anywhere from $300 to $1500......but I just don't think I want it that much!!

That'll be a big purchase, but it's something I've been missing from my life for far too long.

Up until now, spending on my photography interest has been pretty reasonable considering I take pictures every day, but I think I need a new camera already (current one I just got in March). I'm borrowing a different camera and a few lenses from a company I'm doing side work for and I don't know how I can go back to my own...
