i think about toys when i'm at work. i seriously hate my job. but i've hated all my jobs, so i don't think i can really change that. but putting me in my happy place is pretty effective. this hobby gives me something to mentally escape to while i'm droning away at work.
i even bring my little tech deck in to work to flip around when people think i'm working. sometimes it's slow, and it gives me something to have some fun with.
i work grayeyard, and i go hot wheels/joe hunting after work. that always sends me home in a good mood.
this site also gives me something pleasant to do after work. my job really gets me down; it's great to have something like this site and this hobby to give me something to smile about every single day.

The Tank actually stresses me out.
Seems every other day something else is released or announced. I wasn't going to buy those extreme conditions packs, but then I se them here and sure enough I'm out $70 within a few minutes of logging on.
I can't wait for that "Movie Hiatus." I'm going broke really fast.
I see what you did there.

I can relate to the going broke part. I have used my debit/check card to pay for joes up until tonight. Now i have started using my credit card. Guess I have got tired of countless trips driving all over looking for them. Without exaggerating ive probably spent just as much in gas as I have on joes until now. But dont get me wrong the hunting-in-the-wild will continue. I have always got a better feeling of joy when I find them in the wild versus buying them online.

Man nothing like coming back home from a 16 hr day out in the Oil field to find a box waiting for you now that makes my day.
some guys can't wait to come home to a beer, I can't wait to come home to a box of Gijoe goodness waiting for me!
