    I just made the worst impulse buy ever.

    400 Thread count egyptian cotton sheet set and duvet cover...pfft?

    I could have put the money to something I really wanted like a Fisheye...but no...there was a sale, and I was sucked in.

    But oh my. Sleep is like...fun now. And also I figure the ladies will come here for me...but stay for the sheets. Cause damnit they're not staying for me.

    I'm currently buying allsorts of cameras and kit, and then selling them for a profit (well thats the plan) so I can make enough cash to buy some lights - thinking of the D-light2 kit for a start.

    My plan is to get it for basically nothing - which is how I bought my last lens.

    A week and a half into my plan and I'm 25% of the way there - and still 100% positive on ebay ;)

    D200, 10.5mm fisheye, and a truckload of plywood, 2x4's, 4x4's and 2x6's to finish up the climbing wall in my back yard.

    I've been spending money like there's no tomorrow...and if I keep it up, there may not be! Earphones, new cell phone, hotel in Boston, countless little things. I need to put a hold on my own checking account! :lol:
