challenge: burn through a grand

Here is the challenge: you have been handed $1,000 in cash that you must spend in the next 24 hours.  You must spend this money on frivolous crap - no "I'll put it in the bank" or "I think I'll pay down debt" or "maybe I'll just give it to the wife".

No, my friend, this grand is for you.

It is a more difficult challenge than you would imagine.

Faced with a moment of bald-faced consumerism, it's easy to spend $100.  And it's curiously easy to spend $10,000.  But it's hard to spend just a grand.

What's on your list?

I desperately need a better TV. $1000 is a $1000 more than I have to spend on it today.

A new stereo for my computer speakers.

This is of course if I have to spend it in the blink of an eye, if I had more time, I'd probably find a phone or something.

Easy - a new piece of fast glass for the SLR - probably off Ebay. Most good lenses range between $900 and $1500.
