    Don't you hate when you get a rather large sum of money coming at you and there's several different things you want?

    New motorcycle
    New camera
    New lens and lighting equipment
    New MBP

    I can only pick one.

    Do you have enough for all 4 of them?

    What new camera are you thinking of purchasing?

    Completely off at a tangent, but I can't resist, and I know you all want to read this.

    When I was but a lad, back last century, I accompanied my grandfather from the suburb to the city and return on the tram. Grandad smoked a pipe, and did so on the return journey (such things were permitted those days). When it came time to alight, G'dad stuffed his pipe into his jacket pocket in order to help me in safety off the tram, in the middle of the road.

    G'dad then encountered a professional colleague on the footpath and stopped to converse, completely forgetting the pipe. It was not until I'd persisted in tapping on G'dad's arm - a forbidden activity - that his pocket, by then smoldering merrily, was brought to his attention. There followed some frenetic activity, first in getting the hot pipe out of the pocket, the jacket off, and the fire extinguished under G'dad's shoe.

    Oh yes, nearly forgot - I'd go for the new MBP.

    Motorcycle. It attracts women.

    Then you are the winner because you have a motorcycle and women.

    I think it's best to sort out the needs from the wants.
    Is any of the 4 a real need? If so grab that one.
    If they are all wants, just pick the one you'd be most likely to still be using and enjoying in 4 of 5 years time. Cause it's a large pile of loot you have. And otherwise would take you ages to save it up. The best long term enjoyment is my advice. That's if there is no needs there.

    The camera and lenses are the closest need, but the camera won't be readily available to purchase until after December most likely.

    The bike is only going to cost me $1250 and I need a bike. Especially one that gets worse gas mileage than my SUV. I miss my last one.

    I've already got 1 MBP, one Dell Notebook, and two Dell desktops, one that's running Ubuntu and acting as a file server and the other that's keeping the dust off a certain spot on my floor.

    The last two girls I've been talking to don't know that I ride, but maybe that'll help me out even more.

    Does this vehicle come with, how do you say? "***** magnet"? /Borat

    And I just got my Business license last week. I might be a wedding photographer is all goes well this week. They make bank (and deal with lots of headaches...).
