I've been GASing (gear acquisition syndrome) for this swingaway hitting thing; it's basically a tee on steroids. I don't play baseball really, but I love to go catch and batting. I'd go everyday if I could. There's a local batting cage bar in town that I spend a bit too much money at.

This will be the ultimate in stress relief and overall entertainment for me.

What are you GASing for?

But summer never ends in San Diego. ;-)

I've got a pair of boards for sale if you're interested.

Either a Kamado grill, or wood oven, or some kind of outdoor cooking setup.

Within reach? Knocked one off the list yesterday by winning an online auction for a solid koa concert uke. The photos and description make is appear to be almost new, which would put my winning bid plus shipping at less than half the price of a new one. Solid wood ukes are pretty expensive considering they're factory-made in China and Southeast Asia. Even at the price I paid it is expensive considering I have yet to get close to mastering a few chords. But like Japanese knives, even just playing a cheap laminated uke for a bit leads to addiction, known as UAS (ukulele acquisition syndrome). I have open alerts on CL, Kiiji (aka eBay Classifieds) and eBay for many more.

Similarly, the Irish whistle or penny whistle is a very cheap instrument to buy and learn. Many of the best whistle players use cheap, factory-made whistles that cost less than $10. But picking one up and learning a few melodies instantly leads to WhOAD (whistle obsessive acquisition disorder). Within a month of finding an old Guinness-branded Walton whistle in one of my storage boxes, I acquired six more inexpensive soprano (D) whistles ($10-$35!) along with two custom, telescopic Ds ($100+) for when I travel. Whistles start at about $10 and collectible customs can go up over $1000. I will never be good enough to justify a one of those, but knowing that many of the best Irish Traditional Music artists recording today make their livings playing sub-$100 whistles makes this a somewhat unique obsession. I have my eye on a few soprano whistles in other keys and one or two "low" (tenor) whistles in C and D.

I blame my ADHD.

First of all, I need to find a decent room in a shared apartment, that's the best I can afford right now (they run around $850+/month out here unless you want to share a dump and one bathroom with 4 others...).

As for acquisitions, I would love a Green Egg but that will remain a dream for some time. More realistically, if I can set up my espresso gear in the new place, I will be saving up for a Behmor coffee roaster. And I need new shoes...

I have two Specialized Crossroads Pros from the late 90's that are mint. These are Hybrids. I'm sure they are not equal to the Lemond but the price wouldn't be any where near those either. IIR both frames are 20's and I'm not sure of the conversion size...Maybe 52?
Just shoot me a pm if you want more info or photos.

squirrels are delicious. best stock i've ever made was with a bunch of squirrel bones.

pellet rifle? may i suggest a Sheridan Blue Streak, lovingly modified by Mac1 airguns? i have a stock one and it is a cannon..his "steroid" guns are supposedly amazing.

a mechanical keyboard with mx brown switches, nvidia gtx 770 / 780, and a 3 terabyte hard drive for back ups, 42 inch tv.

all are wants. not really needs.

i need a new 5.1 amp, my old one is getting pretty wonky, it's ten years old and left channel is pretty much broken. a new paint job for my car, fix up my car's audio set up (pretty much shot as well), a new set of tires. these are what i need at the moment.

Nice, I was looking at the evo2 also, but got a good deal on the r58. Haven't hit the purchase button though-hah crazy money. I'm going to pair it with the vario since I got a deal on that too and I read it performs better than the mazzer mini, just with poorer build quality. One day i'll uprade to something crazier though-like a compak k10-but the thing is hugeeeee

Sounds silly, but right now I'd like to buy a night out for a great meal. The wife and I had our 5th anniversary and toured a bunch of Texas distilleries and wineries. Spent WWWAAAYYY too much money on roughly a case of wine. Now I'm stuck trying to make boneless, skinless chicken breasts (water added) tasty.

It was worth it though. Texas makes some damn fine wine. Good thing we only drink about 2 bottles a month.

Line cooks need a raise. Universally.
