Definitely off topic, but...

With the Feds sending out the stimulus checks, I thought it migth be fun to hear what you guys are plannign on spending your money on. If you're Canadian or simply too well off to be receiving a windfall from the government, perhaps you could chime in with what you'd spend $1200 buck on if you had it to blow.

I'll start. I bought a new (to me) Blu Ray player on eBay (~$225) along with a few discs (~$50). Baby girl Elle got a new sand and water play table (~$85) and, no doubt, my wife will spend the remainder on shoes...

I would probably trade in my M22s for M80s if my wife allowed it.

If I get a check (I'm not even sure ) then I'm with Ken.

No, Ken, not your savings account ...

Savings. Although, the missus said that when we reach a certain amount in savings, I can get my M80s...this money will only get me there quicker, sooooo I guess you could say i'm sending it to Canada.

The Bush league will love to hear that your stimulating Canada's economy with his money. Deliciously ironic.

haha, that is so true. I never even thought about that. There may be quite a bit of Axiom purchases. Axiom should be running some sales or promo's this month (maybe a free upgrade finish) I think to entice those Americans sitting on the fence.
