    You just don’t get the same sort of closeness with internet girls. I’m a romantic at heart.

    whats pocket money???

    Beer,

    I’m going sober for the month as i worked out that what I was spending on Beer was probably more than enough to pay for my Reading ticket. Then again I’m sure that I’ll drink enough to compensate over the weeend ๐Ÿ™‚

    beer/wine dont count as vices.
    They come under “living expenses”

    Keeping my car on the road.

    No wait, that’s not a vice…

    I’m not sure I have one, although I did buy a titanium spork on Saturday for 3 quid. It is quite possibly the coolest thing I have ever bought.

    Me? Tools. I do love a nice toolkit, and it just keeps expanding. I’d rather buy the tool than pay someone else to do the job, mostly.

    And chocolate raisins. I’ve been addicted to them since I was about 3

    For the last few months each week I have been buying Heat Magazine and Hello. Been missing Blighty a bit and I’ve been really getting into the stories and gossip. They are actually a really good read before anyone gets on my case. A really nice way to unwind.

    Magazines – bike mags, fashion mags and the occasional gossip mag. I must cut back but each bike mag gets read by two people and I often pass on fashion mags to the girls at work.

    Coffee – cappucinos made with ‘real’ milk not this la di da soya SFB ๐Ÿ™‚ Justifying it with a tenth coffee free but I shudder when I think back to how much I spent buying a daily one, have cut back to weekly treats.

    maps – i have memory map, but just HAVE TO HAVE the paper ones – OS, but I like harveys
    books – if i even think about something, i’m off to Borders to get a book and read about it. and no, the internet, not even stw can relace a book
    coffee – “of the month” from the coffe roasting place in town
    cheese – from the specialist cheese place in town
    magazines – like books, be it cycling, motorcycling, sailing, fishing, or whatever else I’m up to this month.
    beer – proper real ale mind, none of this lager p1sh
    whiskey – decent single malts (4 bottles just now in various staes of fullness)

    As a change from Forbidden Secrets of the Lizards Who Control Destiny, or generally?

    Nahh, my reading has been more going along these kind of lines so need something lighter as well for when I am out having a cappucino. Obviously.

    Trashy celeb magazines. I love a bit of “celebrity tit tape disaster” action, I do.
    Bike magazines.
    Proper books. I’m running out of room for them at home because I don’t like to get rid of them once I’ve read them.

    Simon Ralli – Don’t know if you get British TV, but there was a great episode of The IT Crowd about a man who read Heat magazine.

    Epsiode 1, series 2 I believe – in case you ever get the chance to see it.

    But if you were to read one over a cappucino in a cafe, maybe like me you would realise what a hit with the ladies it was, and it’s a great way of opening a conversation and meeting new people.

    Honestly, you should give it a go. I was feeling quite ill a few months back and just bought one copy. Well one thing and another here I am now avidly reading them each week and meeting new people down the cafes here on Saturdays.

    I dont currently have any vices I dont think. Living alone means I rarely get take-outs, rarely randomly drive to the shops to buy stuff as I cant be bothered. I suppose bike bits maybe, but they’re all justifiable. Dont really buy anything else. I used to drop 4-5K a year on my other car but it’s currently off road awaiting repair.

    far too manipulative for my taste, I have enough topics of conversation (just) without resorting to such measures of desperation

    and it’s a great way of opening a conversation and meeting new people.

    Only if you want to start a conversation with other people who like celebrity trash ๐Ÿ˜€ Personally I hate all that stuff so I’d rather not spark a conversation based on that! ๐Ÿ™‚
