A Question for Ya'll

My birthday is coming up. I will be 45 years young. You say 45 years young instead of 45 years old to try to tell yourself it's not that bad. Anyhow, it really isn't that bad, I feel like I did when I was 16, minus the aches and pains and gray hair covered by Just for Men.
But I digress.
I have a huge pumpkin that I throw all my spare change into daily as well as 1 dollar bills that I have left in my pocket at the end of day and there are 2 times in which I can cash it all in...my birthday and, you guessed it, Hallowe'en. There is usually a couple of hundred dollars in change and bills in there. Birthday is coming up on the 21st, so my question is:

What would you buy yourself?

A big sushi lunch, Guitar Hero Metallica, 20 bags of garden soil, 4 yards of rock, Freddy Kruger Nikes, and a lamp for my workshop.But thats just off the top of my head.

I actually want another tattoo, I want a jack o' lantern of the old fashioned type on my ankle.
I have been threatened with slow painful death if I follow through.

My birthday is May 21st, a mini vacation really doesn't sound too bad.

FREDDY KRUGER NIKES?!!! That is uber cool! I didn't know they existed. I did want some Haunted Mansion hightops but %$#@$%^%^&&%#$#@@!!!!!! I found out about them a day or two AFTER they had stopped taking orders!!!

I have an ongoing wish list of DVD sets and books. This would be my time to splurge on those.

When's the big 45? Sounds like we're almost exactly the same age :)

I'll be 45 on the 21st of this month. I'm starting to adopt "Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill" as my motto.

I like that one! I'm not far behind you. I'll be 45 in August :}

You should get the pumpkin tattoo!

The Captain said...

Tattoo, I should have thought of that!

You people are trying to get my @#$%$ killed with the tattoo idea! I would be murdered in cold blood if I got another tattoo.

I'd buy a prop from Pumpkinrot for sure, and find a good Bucky for sale.
A girl can never have too many Buckys.

Tattoos are for wusses. Anyone could go out and get a tattoo. (Well, anyone with more guts than yours truly.) Instead, you should go on a road trip to Michigan where you help one friend convince another friend to watch the whole HP series. *ahem*

Mr.Macabre said...

OOOhhh, I didn't think about a prop from Pumpkinrot! OOohhhhhh, that has possibilities!

Mr.Macabre said...

Dearest Shannon, Ms. M wouldn't watch a Harry Potter movie if Antonio Banderas played Harry shirtless throughout the whole movie.

Brandi McKenna said...

Definatley a weekend road trip to your fav spot with your fav food! A great exscuse for indulgence!

Shannon said...

No, my b'loved Mr. M, you're wrong (either that, or Ms. M is lying to me!). She said she'd watch ONE HP movie. Of course, there will be much boozing beforehand. I actually need to shoot you an e-mail. Besides, Alan Rickman is downright DELICIOUS.

As for me, I really wouldn't watch if Antonio played Harry shirtless!
