    Okay, I'll start us off.

    I've just (well, yesterday actually) treated myself to a set of Turtle Beach X11s, because I'd grown tired of simply typing abuse to my beloved Xbox Live users - now fellow Fifa 11 players will be able to hear my rage.

    Yesterday:

    A 320gb ps3 with KZ3 bundle...and I'm not sure I really wanted it,Duffman see, Duffman want*. I also bought Demons Souls. So not only do I not have enough game time to be even 20% through ACBro or have unwrapped DS2 on the 360 I now have another avenue of game ownership!

    *Duffman will sell 6 months later, like the previous 2 ps3's I have owned ;)

    "Duffman the grey is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"

    New Mac Pro.

    Too bloody expensive, and I totally begrudge paying Apple prices, but pretty essential I have a back up machine so have to have it.

    I got a great mango stoner last week - it works amazingly well! Pineapple corer too.
    Currently eyeing up a coffee grinder and a pizza oven or stone.

    And a very shiny Volvo XC60 in May....

    Day off today - I saw the man of all things Post pull up outside, so I went sprinting through to the front door.

    I've just discovered the trailing a 10 metre Ethernet cable through the house can be rather dangerous! I tripped and went flying into the bike that I have standing in the hall, almost face-planting the wall in the process.

    On the plus side, the Postman DID have my headset. \o/

    I bought some sushi for lunch.

    My only 'exciting' purchases have been a bunch of 360 and PSP games for under 10, and they're offset by the fact that I haven't spent a red cent on booze for three weeks.

    *is rocking a budget*

    Got a new monitor, a 24" one. (I'm looking forward to the "Big Screen" effect, as I'm used to a 20" for the past 3 years).

    It hasn't arrived yet, though. I thought it might today, so hopefully tomorrow.

    Hope I don't get shitty perfomance on my games, now that I'll be upping the resolution. I don't wanna get a new GFX card yet. I can't afford one :(

    I am dismayed that no-one appears to have bought that 4 Halo Reach hoodie that is currently polluting the bargains thread.

    Got an old watch dial, but shinny new hands ordered and on there way, on top of the 3DS and new sub unit ordered earlier in the week. Going to be an expensive month!

    Hah hah - I'd love to buy one if I lived near an Asda.

    Perhaps Timmy will offer up a few in the Swapsies' Thread in a few weeks, if we're lucky?

    A Halo Reach hoodie, imagine the respect and admiration such a garment would bring.

    I just treated myself to a PS3 and 32inch Sony Bravia TV. Haven't had much time to play it since I got it though. Sad times.

    I wonder if that ZuluHero swine is enjoying HIS new TV and PS3, yet.

    Paid for by us, the Eurogamer tax-payers.

    I have no idea what that is, but it sounds intimidating and...oddly erotic.
