Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll: Shopping Spree!

This lunchtime poll is giving everybody a $20 gift certificate to the Internet!

Well, not really. Polls usually ask what you’d do if you won a million dollars, but we’re going to be a bit more realistic today. What completely frivolous thing(s) would you buy if you suddenly had $20 to spend on anything you want? (And while we’re at it, assume free shipping is part of the deal.) Nothing practical, no taking care of gifts for someone else, and it has to be something totally fun. How would you spoil yourselves?

As for me, I can’t quite decide between Think Geek’s “Keep Calm and Bring GrenadesFirefly t-shirt and this amazing Airplane! poster from TheGeekerie on Etsy.

Poster of the nose of an airplane with captions reading "'The Cockpit? What is it?'" and "'There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, does anyone know how to land a plane?' - Elaine Dickinson"
I love this so much.

Since I just went on a book-buying spree (my usual guilty pleasure buy), I’d probably just throw the 20 in my wallet until I go out to dinner with friends or something. I’m boring, but I like being content with my life, which tends to happen when I have a plethora of books. I just got in a shipment of 15 books and have 2 more on the way. :D This t-shirt which I probably will be buying at some point. Milliways is the name of the wonderful online game that I’m a part of and the design is simple and cool. I actually am preparing to do a bit of internet shopping as my moving is finished and I have a little extra money, so time to buy some books I’ve been wanting. Edited as I always forget how links work on comments here.
