The Last Item You Purchased?

posted by Hayden on - last edited - Viewed by 44.7K users

What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

  • @GeorgeC said: I hope you don't do what I do and wait till you are really REALLY hungry before going shopping, so you come back with the worst possible foods to eat (doughnuts, fizzy pop, pies, whiskey, bags of pick n' mix, pork scratchings, sausage rolls, baby bels, prawn crackers, doritos, pringles etc etc etc.

    I try not to do that now because when I was living in Santa Barbara I would ALWAYS do that. I'd come back to my flat from Albertsons with three cases of soda, a bunch of crisp bags, cereal, bagels, pretzels, lunchmeat, coffee, etc. Even if I was trying to be health conscious about things, all I'd get were some bananas and chicken breasts along with the junk food.

    @GeorgeC said: Marks and Sparks, well get you!! Everyone knows you go Tesco's for your main and M&S for odds and sods to put out when your pratty posh friends come around :p


    Unfortunately our Tesco's here in York is a 30 minute walk from my flat, but M&S is only 15, so I don't go there that often. Our Morrison's is out there too, as is our big Sainsburys. We've got a little corner Sainsburys though, and that's where I go for my odds and ends in the middle of the week, like Parmesan, milk and booze. XD

    I can't believe you don't have caramel, that's the only one I like! And it brings back memories (always had it for dessert as a kid). Haven't gone to McDonald's in years, but when I did I usually had McFlurries, though. But the caramel (Daim) one as well.

    The last item I purchased was a hot fudge sundae from McDonald's. And it was DELICIOUS. Also, I checked and I was right, they only have hot fudge and strawberry sundaes here.

  • Just pre-ordered Portal 2 on the PS3 for about £30.
    (The Hut had it for 32, but I used a £2 off coupon)

    I was planning on getting Portal 2 for the PS3 anyway, due to the fact you get the PC version as well. (I hardly use my PSN account so linking it to Steam is no big deal...)
    So I know that if it doesn't work on my laptop, I at least have a console version to keep me happy. :D

    EDIT: Oh and I just got a Super Nintendo and 6 games, (Though its 5 really, as for some reason it came with Street Fighter 2 and SF2 Turbo!).
    I don't think it comes with any boxes, (and the console has been yellowed to the point of being gold!) but for £20 it will do.

    EDIT 2: After some tough haggling and auctioning I managed to pick up Super Street Fighter 2, Super Mario Allstars, Ghoul Patrol, and Flashback

    So for £55 I got:

    Super Nintendo with:

    Starwing (aka Starfox)
    Street Fighter 2
    Street Fighter 2 Turbo
    Super Street Fighter 2
    Ghoul Patrol
    B.O.B
    Flashback
    Pilotwings
    Super Mario Allstars (This is why its so much. This cost me almost £10 on its own! (but its good value considering the number of mario games it has!)
    Super Game Boy Cart (I have a lot of good old Gameboy games. So it adds to the Snes playability a lot)

    (The next stuff is stuff that was bundled with the Snes that I don't care about)

    Nigel Mansell World Championship
    Krustys Funhouse

    Its a shame I didn't get any boxes though... :( (But with a box Snes games tend to be well pricey)

    Next games on the list:

    -Donkey Kong Country
    -F-Zero
    -Stunt Race FX
    -Super Smash TV
    -Super Mario Kart
    (Super Mario World and Zelda:ALTTP I could get, but I don't think its all too necessary as I already completed them when I got them on the GBA, so I might not get them)

    All my drink in England was bought from the ever classy Bargain Booze. The shit thing was that all the spirits I liked weren't on sale. Which meant changing to Bells whiskey and crap lager. Which in turn lead to messy messy nights.

    A Coen Brothers compilation pack without Oh Brother, Where Art Thou inside? SCREW THAT NOISE.

  • I just bought a bottle of Pepsi. Nothing TOO interesting...

  • Pokémon White. I wouldn't have bothered picking it up on release day, but today overlaps with the last day of the Celebi distribution at GameStop, so I figured I'd see if I could get it on White as well. Turns out it only works on the older games. Oh well, it was worth a shot and now I don't have to go out later this week.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

  • This. Why? Because it's alphanumeric!
