What to do, what to do?

Here it is the weekend, and I'm in a quandry. After taking care of the bills and essentials, I have roughly $200 in free and clear cash that I can use to buy... well, whatever I feel like. So the question is, what do I do with it?

I do want to get something, but just what to get is the problem. Given all the pretty things in the past that have been calling my name, they're strangely silent at the moment. So here's what I have so far considered:

A shortwave radio. Yes, I still listen to shortwave, but my current unit is woefully inadequate. But do I really want to get something from RatShack or order online? Or even do a radio?

Computer stuff. I have a flatscreen lcd. I have 180gb of hard drive. I have a CD-RW. I have a new motherboard, memory and processor. I don't need a printer. Do I really need that UPS?

A telescope. I was hoping to get one at Yule, but bills and such killed that idea. But now I could go ahead and order one. The question is, do I really want to do it? Maybe yes, maybe no.

Another porcelain figurine. I've had my eye on a few at the same curio shop where I bought the Fairy of Ravens figure (and the little blue dragon), but I really don't have anywhere safe to put it. Hell, I have the ones I do have still in the boxes for safe keeping... along with the wolf plates. I need something to show off this stuff, but not where I am now...

Suggestions? Ignoring the ones that say 'give me the money!' or similar, of course...

I dunno about the rest of it....but as far as shortwave radios are concerned I would get it online. RadioShack (which I'm assuming you are referencing) doesn't have very good ones anymore.

How about something to showcase your current collection of pretties in, then? Wouldn't have to be much, just something you'd feel they'd be safe in.

As far as the shortwave... hm - think you can find one that hooks up to your computer? That'd kill two birds with one stone. <grin>
