Your latest purchases, cont.

When I was in Edmonton over the weekend, I bought an onyx pendant with a silver chain.

The onyx has a "druzy"--it had quartz crystals forming in it heart, like a geode. An attractive and interesting flaw that makes the pendant look like the eye of Sauron.

Plus, I bought it in an antique shop called the Black Swan. How cool is that?

Enterprise on DVD from eBay. It was a steal - I'm just hoping it'll actually arrive, and isn't another scam.

Lots of obscure Star Trek books from eBay and Amazon. Other people's unwanted junk = my treasure.

I bought a backup battery for my garage door opener. I didn't even know my garage door opener needed a backup battery, until it started bleating incessantly and displaying a "REPLACE BACKUP BATTERY!" warning message.

It cost almost $30. That's a week's worth of wine! Stupid garage door opener.

I paid for my yoga class last night, and it was well worth the $17 -- Kate Vernon had been in the class just before ours.

This is the year that I'm going to learn how to cook! Huzzah!

The animation Blu-ray has three of my favorites on it: Ryan, Madame Tutli-Putli, and Sleeping Betty. It'll be nice having them in pristine Blu-ray quality.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I just returned from the Czech republic last Friday and while walking around in Prague, I saw something that I knew my wife would love. Its a harry potter marionette with real Czech porcelain head, arms and feet. It made it back home in one piece. She did like it, but has not learned how to work it yet.
