Quack you are blessed..

I take 2 trip every year, was in Cuba and Punta Cana in 2008 and previously was in Asia as well.. in May going to Paris (trip booked before this downturn), so this year that will be the only trip.

TNation.. ya insurance is a bummer, well I think you make a good choice by selling the Prelude, it cost more in insurance to run the Prelude.

Cuba $380 .. dont forget the tax of more than $250.. brings you to about $600 plus

I just spent over $1000 to set up a simulator in my house just to play GTR Evolution.

Does that mean yes or no?

But on the other hand I haven't drank alcohol for over a year now (this is a great money saver), and I don't eat out as often as I used to, it is winter so it means I don't drive a car that gets 200km's to 55L's of 94 octane.

In all honesty, I still haven't been hit by the economy and I hope I don't because till then I am still not going to be a believer in all the news reports saying the end is coming! Live it while you can, just be a little more responsible

I work at Mercedes-Benz, we get paid even when there's no work, for example I worked maybe 4hrs on friday, but because I showed up to work I get paid the full day, and they can't just lay us off, we have the blood sucking unions protecting our jobs.

which field are you guys playing at & at what time, I'll let the other guys know, EMPOWERD & 325iGuy also play.

basically
when ever i go paintball i buy the cheapest paintballs over quality ones.
i spend less money on alcohol because of my new cost to drunk ratio...no more beer just strong liquor. cheaper and does the job more economically!!
took my car off insurance for a lot of months...saves 350/month for me!
fast food buying cut back significantly! and if i do buy its 5$ subs anyway
not driving with a heavy foot...despite lower gas prices my foot is in economy mode.
moooch alcohol of people
...thats pretty much it
otherwise my spending just eased up a bit but im still living the same before this econmy crisis

probably going to Sgt. Splatters. The other guys want to go noon to 7 - realistically thats a waste to me cause it'll be stupidly expensive (only field paint allowed) and i'll probably go from 3-7.

most of those people (young ones) are fricking growers and dealers.I seen so many mainland chinese and viet at rama with bundles of bills gambling huge $$$ and you look at them you think they just came from the Scott Mission.Some of the girls are hot though with the 1/2 inch of make up on....why is it that the older italians gamblers arrive at Woodbine at night?..I been there a few times at night and it seems that the older italians like gambling at night,is it some sort of bus tour package?..

lets do it up, if we do it once a month a lot more people would come out, and besides I need new targets to shoot at, most people are afraid to play against me
