And here we go!

Goodness, I won't be able to contribute as many purchase shots as my food photos, lol. I guess I could go around it by saying that I technically purchased the food I ate and photographed. ;)

Yikes, you guys are moving pretty fast considering it's a Thursday during work hours (for most of us)!

Thanks Omar. I'm trying to stay on top of current pics, but I still have those older ones in the queue, lol!

I'd like a Macbook Pro someday. I have a laptop from 2008 and it works fine for now. I only use it when I travel. Otherwise it's my desktop at home. This year and next, my money is going toward photography stuff. Computer related will come after that.

Omar, you are evil!

Cute shot Martin!

Yeah your computer is more than fine. Now if you were choking like me that would be a different story! :lol:

Me evil! Nahhhh. Im just a financial advisor :lol:

I'll definitely continue to do this. Getting you guys hungry is fun. :twisted:

My previous computer was like that, really choking. On average I think I build a brand new computer every 4-5 years, with maybe some minor upgrades after two years. I know it's "obsolete" after just a few months, though. :lol:

Indeed, you advise on how to be financially irresponsible and spend all our money. :p:lol:

Yes the food shots are awesome!!!

I did the same thing with the Dell 8100 tower I owned a few years ago. After two years I put in more ram and a new video card and bank it ran better than ever!

Hey Alex I can't hit the buy button for you. So it's all on you. That's what the small font says under all my recommendations :lol:

Love this game!!! :D

Last time I played was one week after you, Panda, and I all played the same night. I've amassed a few more items. I don't think I will try to do 100% everything, lol.

Next time I will check out user created levels, and maybe give a try to creating myself. :)
