I bought new computer speakers for the first time ever, lol. I've always just used my husband's hand me downs. The ones I have now are finally legit in the crapper after, gosh, well over 10 years of use.
Maybe I'll buy a new laptop next!
Hey, big spender!*
*my dad used to be a database developer/programmer for a company, primarily focusing on Oracle DBs. The company sent him down to their warehouse in Mexico for a week or so on a project one year. He said every day when he and a coworker would leave the hotel to head to work or out for the evening, they were immediately surrounded by the local kids who would repeatedly say, "Hey, big spender!" in an attempt to sell the silly Americans whatever warez they were peddling at the time. Dad also said if you made the mistake of actually buying something, word spread quickly throughout the little gang, and you were sure to be harassed even more. Dad made the mistake of buying a "hand carved" marble chess set. I think it may have been hand carved, as several pieces were off balance and had a tendency to fall over.
