Haha, I know that 'Oh God what did I buy last night' feeling all too well. The rule when drinking is:
Stay away from mobile phones
Log out of any social networking sites
Ban yourself from any auction or militaria sites!
Worst thing I did was buy a repro US Marine K-Bar in a box, signed by a 1st MarDiv vet from Peleliu and included copy of 'With the Old Breed'. A good buy definetely, but it was obscenely priced, thankfully I was able to reverse the purchase the morning after
Have not been drinking much lately, probably nothing.
But i do have my leg wrapped in cast, so im so bored..... I bought 4 hats, binoculars, a field telephone, 20 photos, a book, a 3m long US banner, 2 ps3 games.
In my view, boredom is equally dangerous as being drunk
Oh puleeze, I don't ever get 'drunk', that is sooo low-brow.
I get pleasantly inebriated and make informed purchases based on sound reasoning and the encouragement of the seasoned veterans of the WRF. Hence, last weekends tally summed only a paltry old hat and a salty medal of some description as per the below images...

Terribly crude fakes...both of them....send them immediately to me for proper disposal. They must be removed from the collecting community to avoid any possible further duping of drunken collectors who may be gypped out of their money by an unethical seller purporting them to be genuine....

You're probably right Nick, I blame my poor judgement on the afternoon Peroni's! I wouldn't want to burden you with such junk so i'll bin it the moment it arrives!
