    help me spend my money

    what do I do?

    get the expensive watch ive been after for months or trade in my Canon 28-135is for the Canon 24-105is L ?

    I mean the Oakley GMT in black is sexy but the lens does have a red ring at the end

    hmmm..... personally i wouldn't go for a watch... i can never tell if someone's wearing an expensive watch anymore.... there's so many copies around..... i got my CK copy about 6 years ago and cost about 5 quid

    so i guess id go for the lens..... unless you need an uber fast laptop like i did, thats always a good purchase if you got money to splash out..... i get mine next week....

    i'm not really a watch guy, haven't worn one in probably 5 years. so i say stick with the L glass, after all you can't get any beautiful shots of otters with a watch...

    Must be nice to have to make that kind of a decision. mine are more like... should I buy some L glass and just not eat for 3 months... hmmm.

    i'm starting to think that food is highly overrated anyway...

    you know you want one!...... i just had to order..... no more leaning over a desk, with an aching back, for hours on end....

    Plus because its a Dell XPS, it will render a photoshop file in just a few seconds..... faster than my desktop..... but it comes at a price.... 1'250 quid to be exact, but well worth it i reckon.

    I've got a $20 pocket watch that's done me just fine for the past 3 or 4 years. Is knowing what time it is really worth that kind of money?
