This Post Went 10 Hours With No Title

Hey guys no round up post today, I have too much to do this week. Instead though I can give you some highlights of last week before I kick things off here. I have some guest posts coming up and I have a few ideas I want to do myself, so I think this week might be full of content. Anyway, highlights of last week. Last Thursday I did another podcast, and yesterday was my 300th post, so check in on those days to see the celebrations/hear me be miserable. Not totally miserable, there was some good news in there too. Anyway, for today I want to share some things with you. I finally got some money, like I mentioned before, and I did something I never ever do.

No, I didn't buy a prostitute.

I treated myself.

I bought some things for myself, which I never ever do. I really don't treat myself at all. So for today I'd just like to share with you the things I bought. I also have another necklace on the way, but it's not here yet. I can just show you a picture of what it looks like, but not on me.

Well first off I bought some trousers, no pictures of those. I also bought a new shirt. The trousers are zip offs as well, so when I'm working out, or when it gets too warm in the house, I can turn them into shorts. I'm not likely to go outside in shorts though.

I bought a t-shirt that I will share with you guys. It's a t-shirt of Japanese singer Gackt. If you don't know who Gackt is, I feel sorry for you. I really do. Words cannot describe my joy at having his face on my chest. I don't know how I'm still alive. Anyway, pictures, pictures galore.
The necklace you may be able to spot there is something else I bought. It's a heartagram, the symbol of HIM. Again, if you don't know who they are, I feel sorry for you. I posted one of there songs way back on V-Day.

The other necklace I bought is the one that Squall from Final Fantasy VIII wears. It's not here yet so I can't show you an actual picture, but I can show you what it looks like.


Lastly I bought an actual microphone for recording podcasts and such, so hopefully, if I can use it correctly, sound quality may be better. At first I used my computers internal microphone, which was nice and all, but I felt like it could be better. After that I used the microphone in my phone. I think things got better, but still, it was a microphone in an old phone. So now I have a proper microphone. If things aren't much better then hey I got it in a clearance sale so it's not like I'm too out of pocket.

Buying one thing for myself, that's a lot as it is, but buying all this for myself, seriously it's a huge deal for me to do. But hey I couldn't buy any music or anything, so I bought some clothes instead. I have another complete outfit now, bringing my grand total to 3. Yayyyyyyy.

    1. I don't know what amazes me more, like I said on BBM :P that you remember that or that you still want it.

      I have some trousers that don't quite fit me yet, I'll have more outfits when I've lost some weight, but for now I really don't have that many clothes.

  3. The bottom necklace is my fave and I am tempted to secretly order it for my son. He would love that.

    And good for you treating yourself!

  4. Congratulations on all the treats you got yourself Mark. While I'm not a hugely awesome fan of HIM I like some of their songs so I find that necklace pretty cool to say the very least.

    1. Well the heartagram is just awesome anyway. You don't have to be a fan to love it.

  6. Ah I actually had one of those FF8 necklaces, unfortunately it said "made in china" on the back right next to "Sleeping lion heart", the branding totally ruined it and eventually stopped wearing it =(

    1. Well I hope mine has the writing on the back, I really do. It's coming from Taiwan so I don't expect "made in China" to be on there :P Let's face it, Squall's actual necklace probably said "Made in China" on it.

  7. Wow, Gackt is still around and making music? I remember a few friends who were absolutely enamored with him when I was in high school. And that, I can assure you, was quite some time ago. Good for Gackt, I say.

    1. You know what's even more amazing? He's still looking EXACTLY THE SAME. He has not aged a day. I was really shocked when I learned not only he was still going, but just how long he had been going.

  8. YES, YOU DID SOMETHING FUN FOR YOURSELF
    GOOD JOB MARK

    Also, those necklaces man, so awesome! The heartagram is beautiful, though worthless for summoning demons and shit. ;D
    I got my eye on a pretty cool necklace, too, and maybe want to get a pocket watch. Not sure though...

  19. It's good to treat yourself, and I love THAT necklace. I want one too...plus it's a fact that I often treat myself just about every week to some bit of trivia.
    I'll shut up now as I'm beginning to sound a bit like Sheldon from "The Big Bang Theory" :P

    1. Which one? :Pi like some trivia here and there but I'd hardly class it as treating myself to it really.
