I have a thing for running/cross training shoes its crazy.


Let me know how those are. I have taken up jogging after my doctor recommended walking and jogging more, and need a really good set of shoes.

They are pretty good, but if you don't like the bare feet/ minimulistic running feel then it won't be good for you. Also you wanna make sure that you get the exact size because the heel of the shoe will kill the back of your feet if they are to big because they will rub against it.

I usually go running in a park and it feels pretty good. I run on the grass though because it kind of hurts when I run on pavement and the dam shoe is a rock magnet.

To each its own... some people have 5-6 cars, some others are obsessed with watches, last time I counted my mother's shoes she had over 130 pairs, we all have our little obsessions ;)


I can certainly relate to this sentiment.

There are some things I completely try to save cash, and others I completely splurge on.

I don't bat an eyelash on spending $350+ for a pair of jeans, because I know I'll have them and love them for years (still have a 4+ year old pair of Dior Homme jeans).

Same goes w/ watches- though I can't justify a Rolex at the moment, I can appreciate its value and engineering. I wouldn't mind having a few of those, some IWC's, etc later down the road...haha.

and the next purchase I want to dive into are in-ear monitors, around the sub-$300 range. One could be happy w/ $10 Sony headphones, but as somewhat of a freelance audio engineer, it's a passion/job. So it's more or less an investment I guess, not to mention it can hold its value if I needed to sell them.

But again, we al have our vices, ha!

Hey.... what's all this bashing about watch collecting ;)

Watches are one of the only acceptable men's jewelry unless you are a pimp or rapper of course... :)

Just so you know that isn't the actual picture of the calzone I ate, I would have taken an actual photo but I just finished eating it. Nonetheless, it was delicious and a much needed late night meal.

My latest buy was a hat I bought at Lids 2 weeks ago and gas. I'm the type of person that doesn't need to unless I have a justified reason for spending (i.e. gas, something I really want and I can afford to pay it off later, and food among some other things that I need).
