Well, got Metroid: Samus Returns along with the special M:‌SR New 3DS XL at launch, so that was pretty nice! Got my first paycheck in a couple of weeks ago and oh my god, I should not be trusted with money. Went and bought Destiny 2 special edition, then a couple of days later, bought Final Fantasy XV Premium Edition, Lego Marvel Avengers and Lego Batman. I suppose one good thing is that none of those were actually at full price!

Next purchases for me are going to be a Corsair K70 RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Browns or Blues, to coincide with the release of Wolfenstein II!

The Ghost in the Shell manga and a 64GB microSD card for my phone.

Got a birthday present of the Satori Komeiji Nendoroid.


Very cute but also a pain to put together. Those heart strings are not easy to put on.

At least they are easier than Koishi's but dang.

Yeah, I can tell... sometimes I feel like the only one on here... yet it's somehow more satisfying than a chat room... :j

I'm getting the Light L16. It ships sometime early 2018. The people who work in the Light Support email contact go by the name "Joe." I'm not sure if this is a real person, or if it is a name to say "I am whoever could answer your question after you replied to the previous person regarding something they knew nothing about."

A spirograph! :o Apparently they still make these!

Also a spiffy new scientific calculator that likes to draw equations like in the book instead of being oblique about it. (Specifically a Casio fx-300ES PLUS.)

I got a SNES Classic! Manage to refresh on Best Buy at the right moment, because apparently they were sold out in a minute.
Hakchi2's already on it, so I've added to the library, as well as threw some GBA games into the mix.

I really wanna get into Legos again.

I'm actually really, really good with creating stuff in it and I had this idea last time I passed through Boston to make a Lego replica of one of the subway stops just for fun. If I actually had the pieces for it, I'd go do it.

What's stopping you? Time? Money? I'm betting it's a bit of that last one… Lego gets pretty expensive! We're lucky to have somewhere nearby that specialises in Lego so we can order individual pieces, but it still gets pricey. Our Infinity Cubes cost $16 each, but only because they had a 30% off sale.


What is stopping me is I am in college 3 hours away from my LEGO table. I have turned each set I have that uses wheels into Formula race cars. Next step is build in Lego Digital Designer, save, and build something else.

I used LEGO to make many characters for the graphic novel I am creating with my cousin.

Cool! Old quirky hardware is always interesting to learn about

Went to a thrift store the other day, and got a "new" motherboard from around 2005 for $5. It's Athlon64 compatible, and I'm planning on using it to build my first 64 bit computer

I also stumbled across a very strange full-size ISA card, and upon looking it up figured out that is was a very clunky 5250 emulator, so now I can connect to a very obscure, old, and expensive computer!

Lastly I got a new USB SD card reader, since every previous one has failed me....

i do want to say, i hated my iPhone 6 so much that it made me want to get rid of phones forever. it was so big + clunky. but once i got the SE, it completely changed my mind b/c the improvement was that dramatic.

Oh hey, me too!

Though I've managed to hold off this month, mostly. Bought a few records that I'll be getting next weekend, and I still haven't paid for the new phone I got (though that wasn't a planned upgrade, the Pixel XL is not waterproof ) so I'm trying to take it a little easier with the spending this month.

From another angle, is there a reason your current phone should be replaced? Would it have a major impact over your current one? (From what I remember when I had the iPhone, old models still tended to be quite capable.)

Obviously I'm not you, and I'm not trying to push you one way or the other, just offering different points of thought.

Well, there's nothing really wrong with my current phone, which is why I also suspect I just want something to make me feel better about… life. Expensive retail therapy.
