A bunch of used books, along with Luther and Black Swan on DVD.

That was a terrific used book store. I have to go back there once I'm done with these.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Picked up a new top at Old Navy this weekend. And, it was actually cheapskate hubby's idea. He got three shirts and I got this one:


Not usually something I would get but I like the color and think it will be comfy now that it's so flipping hot out.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a new GPS - upgraded from a Garmin 255W to a 1300 model. I didn't realize how slow my old one had become until I bought the new one.

Also splurged on several $9.99 Blu-rays:

Dune (1984)
The Neverending Story
Corpse Bride
V For Vendetta
300
The Orphanage
Phantom of the Opera

It's quite nice. One of my local cafes uses Jamaica Blue Mountain beans. I'm not a particularly knowledgeable about coffee, but it has a good flavour.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

A couple of books--The Beast Wthin by Emile Zola, and a selection of Lord Chesterfield's Letters.

ETA:

--two tins of pipe tobacco (and a free sampler of a third brand)
--three packages of tea, earl grey, loose
--an art print

ETA:

A bottle of Hammam Bouquet cologne. More floral than what I usually wear, but the flowers in question are roses, which I like.
