    So on Sat. night/Sun. morning I'm a 'bit' drunk and in a fairly bad mood. I'm looking at TF's and trying to decide what to blow this months' TF budget on. There's a list sitting next to the computer on Sun, looks like those I've been eyeing up, nothing unusual there.

    Sun. night I check my emails, didn't have a chance before as I was out all day, and there's one from Curt. Apparently I bought Encore Ratchet, Henkei Astrotrain, both custom Tech. Specs decks, and the UM City Commander armour!

    That was a nice surprise!

    Sept's shaping up to be an exceptional month, including a couple of pre-orders I'd ordered (and paid for, I couldn't afford all this in one huge lot!) over the past few months, and overseas (longer shipping times) stuff, I should also get e-hobby Kermchet, Henkei Megs, the custom Ironhide + Ratchet heads, e-hobby Guardian, the Boss coffee PVCs, and Henkei SW/TC.

    Today I got Animated Soundwave, Jazz, and Snarl (who was free as part of a 3for2 deal), and last night I got Ani. Blitzwing.

    I'm overwhelmed, and amazed that several months worth of TF's are all going to arrive in the next few weeks, I need more free time! :D

    Fortunately none of my drunken surprise purchases have still been around when I wake up the next morning. Helps to pay up front I guess.

    This just made me think of an old Onion article were a guy got drunk and went on Ebay and ended up with the complete Mama's Family collection, on VHS.

    Hahaha, I'm pretty guilty of this too... Except I go wandering Ebay, drunk as a skunk, and when I wake up the next morning I've gone on a spending spree and bought a bunch of random, sometimes incredibly foolish, things.

    Cheers man, I gave up drinking for 2 years about 4/5 years ago, thoroughly enjoyed it. Slowly started getting back into it, turned out I never really lost my tolerance (Scottish drinking ability FTW!). Still not much of a drinker these days, but do enjoy the occasional few.

    I try not to post when drunk these days (says he with a beer in hand), it usually lands me in trouble, yours are far more amusing!

    :lol  Most of my SWTFs have been a result of me being intoxicated, my friends turning me loose in Walmart saying "Go be a nerd ha!"
