I came home from work at 10.30 pm. Very tired and I have to be at work at 7.00 am tomorrow. What can be more fun than spending the evening on checking on who are ?billionaires??

And after that, I ordered Nikon AF-S 70/200 f/2.8 G VR IF ED. I?m gonna be very slim next month.

:eh:

I looked up and down that list three times - and yet again I didn't find my name on it. Damn. Oh, well - maybe next year.

Now if there would be a list, not of billionaires, but of the "Billion Richest People in the World", well, I might just manage to make that one. On second thought, better make it the "Forbes Richest Five Billion". I'd definitely be on that one! :lol:

Hmmm . . . so you must be a billionaire, too! Next, the 14-24, and then you'll have all the famous "trinity" zooms!
