I trimmed my money tree. What's the point of money if you can't spend it, eh? I lightened my Wheel of Fortune load on thursday by buying some Paradigm speakers I've been dying to get since I first heard them in August. I'd been saving up to get them and once I got my windfall it was tough to turn them down.

I know I shouldn't go wasting all my cash on lust objects, but I think part of the point of getting "free money" is spending it on stuff you couldn't/wouldn't have bought otherwise. How many times have you said "I would buy so many CDs if I had $1000 fall in my lap?" I've said it a lot. So I bought my speakers and I can't wait to listen to the best speakers I've ever, possibly will ever, own.
