Updated version, because only the best questions will do
but you should try telling that to some of the families I tutor
I'm sure you're a quality tutor.
and i was pretty arrogant about it even. Very arrogant about it.
And now i'm sort of trying to focus on simpler stuff and being massively thankful when luxury comes my way
I'm a bit picky about where I live and wouldn't buy the lowest grade of toilet paper. But that's about it.
I need hot baths and a nice cup of coffee at least once a day
Last time I mentioned it on here someone got annoyed
in this subjective bower your prison
...but, in essence, I couldn't give a shit for the most part. I'm pretty frugal.
I live in (what I think) is a very nice flat and don't wear crappy clothes (even though it doesn't look like it most of the time), but I'm terribly shallow and do wish I had more money for nicer clothes and holidays and stuff.

I hated myself for considering it, though. So I didn't think I could do it. Especially as he was telling me a story about his Dad's wife that mmarried him, and then killed him for the cash... :/

I reckon you're selling yourself cheap with this millionaire dude
(how are you feeling?)
but otherwise not dead or dying
I actually wrote a children's book while delirious in hospital
and it's pretty good so, well see
I know children's book publishers, you know.
Befitting the context of the book I had thought of self-publishing (at least the initial run) but it would be interesting to have an industry contact
Yeah, keep me posted. It's Random House :)
You can't just give him a sympathy book deal just coz he didn't have a heart attack. I've never had a heart attack either and you've not given me a sympathy book deal. Fucking hell Chintxz
I always try and help people! I say always; not always.
unless you mean chocolates, in which case they are mine all mine
Pret A Manger, not McDonalds (unless it's a bloody emergency). Think that sums it up.

okok well in that case, I offer our weekly organic food box delivery as evidence and retire crestfallen to the sidelines
just been paid, stocking up for the weekend. basically I'll only stretch myself at all if there's food involved
Does that make me a pikey?
Pret is a treat. Any sort of eating out is a treat. Some are more luxurious than others but they're all treats.
recorded music on demand (also electronic synthesisers and electronic guitar effects)
my luxuries above were relative to a comfortable UK living-standard, not a worldwide mean standard
