Fun for under $100

A friend just gave me $100 for Christmas with the express instructions that I wasn't allowed to spend it on anything that I needed, only fun stuff. What would you buy?

good tickets to a concert, lots of movies, all kinds of things, but I would worry less about the proper way to spend.

Take a day off work and do lots of things you wouldn't normally do on a weekday.

I second the 'drugs' suggestion. Something warm and fuzzy, for the holiday feel.

Good liquor and a Pixies album (I'm building my collection of both).

Ooh, ohh, maybe a manicure (though that might fall under something I NEED) or a really outrageous hair color that I can only get at that one salon...

Be grateful for such a wonderful friend. But yes, good food, good drink, movie/theatre.

Oh, you said what should I buy, not what should I do. Dagnabit.

Buy some flowers for someone who needs them. Have them delivered in a quasi-anonymous manner.

A $100 GPS receiver, or three to four months of broadband. I have neither, nor do I need them, but they'd be nice.

A dinner you can't afford. I'd go here. $75 for the prix fix dinner.

Get yourself a nice flash-based MP3 player. My MuVo Slim cost about 100.

The fact that you have to ask this means that you badly need it. Enjoy!

Put it toward a big purchase you want, like an iPod, or a really nice handbag, or a TV.

Get it changed into singles, though, so you can slip it into the ladies' g-strings as you're taking a look at their dugs.

keep it tight, heather - isn't $100 a little on the low end for quality? ;) We don't want ttrendel to catch anything, eh?

Books, booze, and (BJs?) movies (previously viewed movies from your local mega rental?).
