    As the title says, share your purchased gizmos, or anything else.

    Two days ago I've had the opportunity to play with a quadcopter. I was hooked instantly. After a half day of searching and comparing I ordered one. I feel like it's Christmas; yearning for the present.

    Two heads of cabbage, a stalk of leek, potatoes.... Okay, other than food? I really don't buy anything, ever. There's nothing I *need*.

    But lucky for you, I finally was able to get me some Copic markers last weekend and they're heavenly :oldlove:. Also, while at the store, I got another 6B pencil because the one I had at home was too short.

    I am typing this while at a coffee shop (Tim Hortons). I just purchased a cheese croissant and a mug of tea; finished the croissant, working on the tea.

    A toothpaste. Look how white my teeth are! :biggrin:
    Btw shouldn't it be called teethpaste? Are you supposed to brush only one tooth with it?

    Is there a word for these kind of language mistakes? For instance, near miss should be near hit. There are loads of these errors. I love it when standup comedians point them out.

    I only know American English and can't tell you the real differences between the two types. All I'm saying is that the language is messed up on so many levels and it's just something you've got to deal with (and laugh about).

    Most languages have that problem I guess :)

    Thank you. I had to eat a suspicious yoghurt in order to get this color.

    That one looks rather small. Can it take pictures and video?

    You know, it only dawned on me about 6 months ago that all the Hollywood helicopter shots of yore, which used to be signs of a big budget, have been taken over by the drone cam.
