So my Mom called me a few days and told me she had accrued a bunch of American Express rewards points and I could exchange them for whatever I wanted (thanks Mom). The total was over 200k points which is worth roughly 1,500 real dollars if you were to cash them out. After browsing their rewards catalog I decided I would exchange the points for credit on Amazon. Turns out for whatever reason you can no longer do that so I exchanged them for Amex gift cards which I then in turn used on Amazon. I had a roughly 1,500 dollar shopping spree over the past few days which was pretty fun.
Hypothetical: Say someone hands you 10k and you had to spend it all within a 24 hour period (much easier than it sounds)...Feel free to buy anything from women, drugs, food, to clothes. What's your day looking like?
This old guy has accrued all his fun stuff at the expense of practicality. I have grow lights, vintage road bikes, vintage office desk and chairs, classic out of print books, more music than i ccould listen to in a lifetime, tv's, killer computer, game consoles, several guitars, mics, and music equipment...most my hobbies are fulfilled!
Ermengildo Zenga suit plus shirts, ties, cufflinks and sick dress shoes 3-4k
Return ticket to japan + rail pass 2k
Week at a penthouse at the beach near me + few grams, champagne, ******* 2-3k
Various pieces of nice home furniture/ decor (art prints,movie posters etc.)
various very luxirous and stylish winter coats
a vast array of media (films,albums I don't own)
a whole rack of fitted hats (maybe like 20-30)
pairs of designer jeans of a comfortable fit...assorted washes and denims
splurge on uniquely designed and Pop culture-ish tee shirts
one or two really nice watches
down payment on remaining tattoo ideas (24 hours to spend, tats take time)
5 or so pairs of fresh kicks
pick up some classic literature not owned or read (which is tons), sick editions
half pound of some good herbal essences to wash the soul
I'd pay off my debts then probably build a state of the art gaming PC: quad-core, dual video cards, liquid cooling, 30" HD monitor, the works. Also, a PS3, with a gaming chair + steering wheel with a clutch for GT5.
Another choice would be to spruce up my ride. Buy a new tranny, new engine. Do a little bit of body work, new paint job, completely new interior. Basically make it like new again. Maybe a supercharger, too.
