    Just curious.

    Was talking about this last night with friend and my best thousand ever spent was on Lasik eye surgery.

    Went from wearing contacts to better than 20/20 vision.

    Not terribly exciting, but for what I got out of it I would have to say that wins.

    Though I wish it were on a woman, or nice system or something better.

    Although it was more than $1000, I'd have to say my computer, but really it's a tie, my washer and dryer are equally as important!:D It's more fun to use the comp than do laundry tho.;)

    I definately have my share of bills too, but every year when we get the old tax return we make a major purchase.

    Best 1000 bucks? Not exact, but I spent $ 825 dollars and comething cents on my Samsung Syncmaster 170t. Before, my eyes used to tear up and hurt when I sat for hours in front of my Dell Trinitron. Now, I get a very nice DVI connection at 1280 x 1024 res, and my eyes never bother me anymore. This makes me happy. My computer cost about $ 1100, and that I'm very happy with also, but still, I want some more. Want more ram, want more HDD room, want more, want more, want more. Yes, overkill I know, but, still I want some more. Why? I don't know...

    did win a lottery... it paid for it, i am saying that i have the shares.. so if they lottery ddint pay, the shares did.

    Sort of confusing isnt it.

    (shares remain intact)
    Dont know how much worth...

    I spent $1,150 in five days at the vets office trying to
    help my Wolf dog live, sadly I
    had to let him go. That was in 1988. At least I tried
    and would have paid much more if he could have
    been cured. He was a German Shepherd/Wolf mix.
