Post a Picture of Your Silly Purchase of the Month.

2021 Genesis G70 3.3 Turbo. It's been a long time since I drove a proper sports sedan. And I like that it outperforms much flashier and more expensive cars. So much fun.

I browse used G70 listings a few times a year but have not been able to convince myself a car payment is a thing I'm ok with yet.

Most of this were actually Christmas gift, but I did have to buy a couple parts to finish up.

It took me a couple hours of carefully disassembling my controllers and reassembling them, but they came out nice. The touch pad replacements were a bit scary and the L2 and R2 triggers were a pain to switch out.

I don't even play D&D but my FOMO won out.

I hear you. I especially don't like having two payments at the same time, and my wife got a car a few months ago. But, the massive student loans that we've been paying for 15 years were recently forgiven under the PSLF waiver program, so I figured we can afford to pump some money into the economy. Besides, what kind of American would I be if I didn't have debt?

My office gave us all a $500 bonus. I may or may not have chosen the best use for it...

Some day, you'll be flying commercial, and the pilots will be so sick from food poisoning they'll need someone to take over. You'll remember this day and say to yourself "Money well spent!"

And shortly after, you'll be saying "WTF AM I DOING?!!?!"

When I first saw this picture, my depth perception was such that those boxes were 5 feet high.

I'm too lazy to post my own photo anywhere (can we not share Google Photos?), but I ordered this last October and it arrived last week:

No I tried to share my Google photos in the picture of your pet thread and it looks like it works for me but just shows a dead link to everyone else

Gyms are closed (again) and, even if they were open, I would not feel comfortable enough to set foot in there, so it's time to buy some stuff. In addition to some dumbbells and a bike trainer (bought a few months ago), I also got this pull up bar yesterday:

It had the wrong number of screws so I had to go to Home Depot to get an extra one, but it seems to work fine so far.

And now, time to put on my shorts, grab a towel and my water bottle, and to jump on the exercise bike!
