Default The best place on earth?

After a heavy weekend of DIY- forced onto me by my better half,

I was walking around the hardware store and realized I couldnt decide which place was better-

The Drum store or the Hardware store?

They both have nice shiny things that grab my attention and they are the only stores that I will happily spend hours just walking around- all those new toys to play with?

Anyone else have a habit they cant control???? haha

The best place on earth: my throne behind the drums.

Where is the best place on earth: home sweet home.

I like my 2 local Ace hardware stores also. I have found some interesting stuff there to do some work on my drums. Best of both worlds.

Playing infront of 30,000+ people, behind a drum kit.
There is no place I'd rather be than putting on a hell of a show for 30k+ screaming fans.

My personal heaven would be selling out a fest, headlining, with over a million people. I don't do it for the money, or the fame, but I'd do it for the music, the fans, and my own personal enjoyment.

I love going into art supply stores. All the paints and drawing pencils and equipment. Easels, rolls of canvas, brushes, pastels, I love all those. I'd like to go into such a place with $500 to spend.

I have to agree that the drum store comes first. However, i have a spending problem when i go in the pet store with my dog. I go in for food with her following me around and i leave with treats and toys and a new leash and so much other crap.

The good news is that when this compulsion happens in the pet store, i end up spending around 50 bucks and in the drum shop its more like 500.

Geeze!!!

Heff's.

Duh????
