Basically just things you are willing to spend extra money on and you feel like you get your worth.

 

Clothes

Footwear

Audio/video equipment

Meat

Sandwhiches

Toiletries-razors, hair products, aftershave, deodrants etc

A few on that list really.

 

Clothes If it's BAPE tee's I normally go the extra couple of quid. Similarly if it's like a winter coat I know I'll get a fair few uses from or a suit shirt/tie then I'm happy to pay a fair price. But really I'm a big fan of TK Maxx and the like, as their prices are quite fair. I got a Hummel jacket for 22 quid the other week and shed a tear almost.

 

Footwear- A bit like clothes. I once spent £100 on a pair of Nike's as they were like one of a kind, you couldn't get something similar, but normally I just go to Top Shop or TK Maxx and spend £20-40, I'm not massive on having loads of pairs of shoes really.

 

Toiletries Massive cheapskate on this front even After shaves I take advantage of the Boots deals, pay a tenner for some Police aftershave. I tend to go to Wilkinsons and get Original Source stuff as it's only a pound, although saying that I did splash out on a Gillette razor and Nivea soothing shave cream as I kept getting shaving bumps so more necessity than luxury.

 

Football Boots. If they are comfy and look like I'll get a good use out of them, why not. Normally no more than 40 quid, but when you compare that to the fact you can get them for 15-20 in some places I'm happy to pay a bit more.

 

Watches I only have 2, a Nixon and a D&G but they were a good price, and I know at least the D&G one will last me long enough to justify it's price tag.

 

Mobile contracts I pay £35 for my Blackberry per month, but the Email function is well used so it justifies itself in my eyes, plus it has extra things like the Memo pad and ability to view word documents etc.

 

Headphones I'm so tempted to drop some money on a good pair of headphones and the Dr Dre ones are tempting but the £250 pricetag puts me off, I'll probably edit this tomorrow having bought them in a massive moment of stupidity.

Cologne - Clive Christian and Tom Ford.  Everything else just smells cheap tbh.

 

Water - San Pellegrino or Voss.  Can't drink normal water now. 

 

Headpones - I won't claim to be able to tell the difference when it comes to the super, SUPER high end cans but it's worlds apart when you compare the £20 stuff to the £200 stuff.

Food. Though I have discriminating taste as to what is worth a higher price than you'd normally expect to pay.

 

Interesting tangent [nicked from Curb Your Enthusiasm] - who is a better judge of food, a fat guy or a thin guy?

Education & knowledge which interest me

 

More environmentally friendly product, such as recycled toilet rolls and local organic vegetarian food. Electrical car is simply out of equation as I can't afford it.

 

NUFC-related stuff. Would invest in NUSC fund to buy NUFC.

Waste of money for you tbh. Go buy some animal rape porn instead.

 

No. I am morally against rape, so I do not financially contribute to any porn depicting genuine rape, including animal rape.

 

You seem to be very interested / well-informed in animal rape porn ?

You have that bad a sense of humour you can't even decipher that it's sarcasm humour? f*** me. Just.. LOL f***ing LOL YOU'RE f***ing WORSE THAN I THOUGH :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

I'm out of words :lol: :lol:

 

1. You stressed that you never joke about rape. So now - pick you choice. You are a shameless liar, or you are a rapist. I prefer you to be a liar if I am honest.

 

2. If you are uncapable of spotting a deadpan - the last thing you should do is to give humour counselling.

1. I said I don't joke about rape in the context you're saying I do, and I still don't.

 

2. That's not even close to a deadpan joke as you ruin it with your last sentence.

 

1. You do. I said I do not see rape as humour. You "joke" about you being a rapist. Are you a rapist, or simply a liar, or perhaps a mental retard who has weak grasp of vocabulary ? Pick your choice. Now there are 3 choices instead of 2.

 

2. Unfortunately, you cannot see a deadpan without being alerted to. Sometimes I simply have to cater to my audience.

1. There's a great difference between using sarcasm, and saying "I love raping people. Hahaha. That's my kind of humour." Then again, seeing how you can't even use right terms for supposed jokes you're making. Who am I to think you'd grasp the concept of sarcasm used in a comical fashion?

 

2. Comedians aren't supposed to only be catering to themselves, and using a term for a supposed joke which does not fit the supposed joke.

 

1. So, what is the purpose of "sarcasm used in a comical fashion?" Humour and joke, maybe, afterall ?

 

2. Well - you were making such a fool of yourself. I simply have to blatantly point things out for you, as painful and as discouraging as it sounds.

I'd say it'd depend on what the fat guy had eaten to become fat. If he'd become fat by eating candy and drinking immensive amounts of cola, no. If he'd become fat by overeating food, probably.

Weed. Fuck off with your 15 quid a quarter, hacky, full of plastic, throat burning resin.

 

Actually, pretty much everything. I'm a brand-whore and a massive snob.

Ready meals.  Need them for work when I'm doing the 2pm to midnight shift and I quickly got sick of Birdeye lasagne etc.  If I've got three late shifts in a row I'm perfectly happy to spend £12 on three posh ones from Waitrose or Marksies, think you need something decent to look forward to to get you through a ten hour shift.
