Babylon 5. All of the seasons except for S2, which Best Buy didn't have. Now i gotta find that one season.
They've got them on sale right now, don't they? I thought I saw them there for $19.99 the other day, which is what made me buy them a couple years ago.

You might be able to get a raincheck on the sale price.

I bought one of those things (don't know the anglo name for them: please help me with that!) that you install above where you do your cooking; they, then, suck up all the vapours! cost me 999 Kr (~183 US$).
In Australia they are called a rangehood. I am not sure what they are called in the rest of the English speaking world.
Vent, though range hood is used too.
Thanks - I don't think I've ever heard that before (well, I know what a vent is just not that the word would also include a motorised sucking device with built in lights).

ETA: looked up "kitchen" on Wikipedia and found a link to an article on the thing:
Name

The device is known as an extractor hood (in the UK) and as range hood (in the United States) or rangehood (in Australia). It is also called a kitchen, stove, exhaust, cooker, vent or ventilation hood. Other names include cooking canopy, extractor fan, fume extractor, and electric chimney.
ETA²: "LUFTIG BF325"

I gave in and pre-ordered the Six Million Dollar Man complete series DVD set from TimeLife today. Early Christmas present for myself.

Now I just have to occupy my time during the annoying wait for the mailman to bring it.
When it arrives, you better damn well run in slo-motion to collect it.

... nanananananananana....


Well I can't run, but I WILL ride my wheelchair in slow motion to the maibox. Making that sound all the way of course.

If it would just get here...The waiting is STILL annoying! November 29 can't get here fast enough!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

$5 Walmart movie. I got it mostly because it was only $5, partly because it has a picture of my home town getting blown up on the front, and just a little bit because I think 2012-related stuff is interesting. I'm about to watch it now, so I guess I'll find out shortly just how bad (or good) it is. When it comes to $5 movies, I tend to have low expectations.

That will do nicely; you've already been cybernetically enhanced.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought myself a 17 year old Raleigh Activator II. Large frame. Shimano 21 gears. Bar ends. All terrain tires. In gunmetal grey. Great for getting from A to B fast and cheap, and all without being fancy enough to attract thieves (a good bike apparently doesn't last long around here). Reminds me of whizzing around on my Lizard as a child, riding just for the sheer joy of it.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

A couple of days ago I bought a JANSJÖ lamp from IKEA (to use as a desk lamp), I was so impressed with it (amazing how much good light can come from a 3W lamp at only 13 US$) that I went and got another for reading in bed yesterday.


ETA: They also come in pink, red and black.
