    I missed this thread, the first time around, because I was traveling in Spain. And, not coincidentally, that is where most of my "fun money" goes, travel.

    For more fun, I am thinking of starting a foundation to re-educate morons.

    Congrats to @DMFA on the baby. Maybe he will take his moderator foot off my throat for a bit while he is busy changing diapers and stuff.

      In my pre medicine life I was a DJ so now that I’m making money again I’m working on a nice Home audio studio with the newest digital turntables and audio equipment. Otherwise it’s video games and good wine and food and HCOL in NorCal wine country.

                Much like a number of you, I splurge on travel and craft beer, often simultaneously.

                I've bought many a camera lens, but I'm no longer an early adopter of electronics like I was 10 to 20 years ago.

                If the Vikings had made the Super Bowl, I might have splurged on some $3,000+ tickets, but alas, that will have to wait.

                        1) Nice vacations, Spain was the last one and I really enjoyed that country. Prague and later Antartica are coming up soon.

                        2) The boat, somehow it keeps asking for more and more....

                          Definitely hobbies and travel for me.  I've had lots of different hobbies over the years.  We're settling down a little bit with the traveling since we're in debt pay off mode.  But, I still have a couple of trips planned this year.  When we are traveling I do some photography (landscapes) as a hobby as well.

                          I have an expensive hobby that I've been in and out of over the years.  Currently getting back into it...Reef Aquariums.  I grow corals. It's very expensive to start, but if you're successful, you can make the money back by selling pieces of coral to other people.  I really like building things and watching things grow so it's a perfect hobby for me.

                            I wonder when you will have the second happiest day of a boat owner's life....

                              As a family: vacations and marginal luxuries (like upgrades on longer flights)

                              Me personally: hunting, gaming, bourbon/scotch

                                What do you splurge on? Hobbies? Cars? Model trains?

                                What are your guilty pleasures? Don’t worry, I won’t tell WCI.


                                I like video games, computers, technology in general.
