Anyway, earlier this week I received a counter-signed copy of my contract and a check for the first part of my advance. This has been a long time coming, and I'd like to get myself a little something.
I'd originally planned to buy a complete set of the CHILL rpg, Pacesetter edition, but now I think that would just add clutter to our already cluttered apartment. I don't play paper and dice games any more and probably won't start up again until my son shows interest in a few years.
So, what should I treat myself to instead? I'm throwing the question out to you folks; have any good ideas? All suggestions should be $200 or less, and no video games or game consoles. I'm a little obsessive--when I start playing computer games, I don't stop for hours/weeks until I finish. Not good. There's also no need to suggest books, since I buy them anyway.
Have at it, please!
What should burger_eater buy himself now that he's received his first novel-writing check?
What the heck--if I end up taking your suggestion, I'll send you a book. Thanks.
