    The tax man hath re-payeth me my money and I'm looking at going on a spending spree with some of it. If the boss allows it, I'm hoping to pull around $500 as "do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-with-it" money. Of course, this is still pending approval.

    So, do I do the responsible thing and use it to pay for some of the preorders coming down the line? Or, do I blow it on something extra... seeing as I was willing to pay for those preorders anyways?

    What would you buy for your plastic crack fix? Help me TFWers... you're my only hope.

    If I could buy one expensive TF right now, it'd be Vardia Starscream. So that's my reccomendation.

    Gimme an I!

    Gimme a R!

    Gimme an A!

    What is the Canadian equivalent of what that spells?

    Why just buy plastic crack when you can buy a piece of the plastic crack maker? Hasbro stock.

    :lol 

    I can't believe that's so close to crack!

    But I was taking about IRAs, not the IRS. Is there a Canadian equivalent of a tax-exempt savings plan?

    You should make one big purchase, something you have been putting off buying.

    Hope your boss has approved, but thinking of what to buy is almost as fun as when you have your purchase in your hands :D

    Oh, my bad; those would be RRSPs.

    You can also donate some of the money to TFW. ;)

    I think my affiliation with the crack club would force me to come in and say Animated Blitzwing and Soundwave.

    But my remaining common sense says: It's your money, get whatever the hell you want. Squirrelcar is onto something, though.

    This may sound completely crazy...especuially from a fellow crack addict, but if you are like me, everything that I want is either pre-ordered or not been released yet, so this money could go to a special night out with Mrs Jourdo, but make it a big surprise and it could pay off in more ways then one.

    Trick her in to thinking that you have found something to buy and the money will be spent, then plan a babysitter for the little one and take her out to a fancy restaurant, a show and then stay a night at the Paliser or something. Then you are free to pre-order and buy a bunch more stuff after and she won't mind, cause she will still be reeling after the most romantic night of her life.

    Game, set, match....

    Or you can by the 1/12 replica of the Starwars speeder bike with trooper that I saw at Chinook Hobby. Damn that looks awesome, only $399.99.

    I was going to say RRSP or FLQ... depending exactly what you were going for there. ;) 

    TJ - not a bad plan... better investment return as well. Good thinking.
