Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

In the last thead (around Oct '07) I posted that I bought a '01 Forester - after three years of biking to work, I'd finally gotten a new ride. Today, I got the "congratulations" notice from the bank - one last payment and the title is on it's way. Thing is... since I've had automatic car payments out of my checking account, and long since misplace my payments booklet, I thought I still had a year of payments to go. Man, its so much sweeter when it comes as a surprise!!

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.
The DVDs arrived today. Mint condition, legit versions (lots of Chinese fakes on ebay) an utter steal.

I love eBay.

Nice one!

What have I bought recently? Hmm, not much.

Got a bottle of Urziger Wurzgarten Loosen Riesling; I love Loosen's wine, and the Urziger always rocks out.

And oh yeah, bought a Tom Ford bowtie. Very cool colours and nice silk.

Um, lattes and sandwiches at my usual lunch spot; no table available today though... grr...

That's about it recently I think apart from the usuals like petrol and groceries. Come to think of it, I've been pretty frugal for a while. I think it's because I know I've got a five-figure tax bill to pay next year, so psychologically, I'm in savings mode a little.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I took a little trip to New York this week, and spent a day at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum- and bought some goodies: an old style New York Mets pennant, a rubber duck with the Museum logo, a Mets pen, and a "Mets in the hall of fame" t-shirt for my sister. Took a lot of pictures, too.

On the way home, I had lunch at the Cracker Barrell, and picked up four of the new Jingle Beanie Babies for my Beanie X-Mas tree- a kitten, a husky pup, a reindeer, and a guinea pig. So damn cute.

Sandworms is actually pretty good...at least better than what I expected. I don't think that's really how Frank wanted to end the series though as Pinky and the Brain claim.

i'm almost finished with Chapterhouse: Dune and i have Hunters of Dune and i know that, even if i hate Hunters i'll want to finish out the series anyway. all the negative things i read about Hunters and Sandworms just makes me very, very afraid.

the only Brian Herbert/KJA Dune book i have read is The Winds of Dune. it wasn't terrible. it kept my interesting going, but it just seemed unnecessary. some things don't fit in very well. i think in Dune it states that Paul has never been offworld before and in Winds he goes planet hopping when he's 11.

Not a purchase but an almost-in-the-garbage-pick. A fabulous shelf unit was being hauled out to the dumpster at the stupormarket where i shop. I asked if i could have it and they gladly gave it to me. It's all wood, four shelves and very good looking. w00t!
