    oops lol
  2. The Off Topic Thread.

    Go the bike, keep the G6 WPMO: Have been sleeping like crap for the last month or so (awake til 3, 5, 7am) and feeling dopey as fark all day. Went to docs today and got full set of bloodwork done and got some sleeping pills (Temazepam if that means anything to anyone) to try and get me back on track. Am about to pop one (after I watch the new Star Wars) and see if I can a decent nights sleep for the 1st time in ages. If I'm posting here again before tomorrow morning I'll be sad :(

    Definitely the way to go. Really need to hold the pen in your hand and try a few strokes to make sure it's a good fit.

    Would it be OK if I gave you a voucher for the pen shop so you could decide on the one you want in person? Or Penisland.net

    Yeah/nah Isn't it great that we as adults can make decisions concerning ourselves and those around us that don't have to take into consideration the opinions of other individuals? Maybe we should put it to a national plebiscite - Do gift vouchers offer a legitimate xmas present option? Yes/No

    Not really the old man gets an xmas ham and single malt scotch that he wouldn't have gotten himself or off his own bat the old girl gets a full day at the Peninsula Hot Springs with brekkie/lunch with either dad or my sister that she wouldn't have done otherwise Those aren't things they'd be comfortable receiving normally On xmas day they're wrapped and that gives both them and me pleasure Not really I may get socks and jocks this year - or a doonah/sheet set - or a bottle of hot sauce - or a voucher for a night out - or a set of tyres for my car Not for one second do I do any sort of calculations of monetary value - the thought process in choosing the gift (if any) speaks more than the value of it Card/vouchers are fantastic for teens/young adults - I've found they start to plan what they're going to get with the gift card pretty much as soon as they are given it. For some cash would go on their bills/ciggies/booze/hookers etc - at least the voucher "forces" them to grab an actual item and lets them pick one they want. With a voucher you're able to give them a narrower focus of where to spend it and lets them know you have some understanding of their interests ("Hey - a game for the console mum and dad gave you for xmas", "Hey - I know you want to get a decent ski jacket - go find yourself a decent one", "Hey - I know you've just moved into your own place and are starting the garden - go pick some nice plants/decorations from Bunnings") Also lets them take advantage of boxing day sales - maybe they can find a 2 for 1 deal or decent discount, allowing them to stack the stocking a bit higher or get an item that would have been out of the budget otherwise. Next time you visit - "Hey Rab - come play this game/look at the jacket I chose/have some tomatoes from the veggie patch we made" I don't think there's a person that matters that I don't see/talk to regularly enough that I need to make it a special event for xmas lol, or that a visit from me would be considered a present

    Yep. Cash goes into the wallet and makes no difference in the long run Card/voucher gets spent on something they actually want, wouldn't have gotten otherwise and can consider your present to them.
  12. WPMO: Friggin Kogan Ordered something 5th of Nov ($700ish) Got an email from them saying product won't be available til after xmas I tried to change the order to another product - they said they couldn't do that, but could refund and send me a "eVoucher" code "shortly" to use on the replacement product. That was 2 weeks ago
