I've always been a bit jealous of Barrows (for obvious reasons), but wow!!

Last thing I've purchased, thanks to gift cards: A cordless hand vacuum. Not exciting but practical!
I wonder why? One is from 1962, another from 1960 and 2 of her as Barrows.

Today though, I bought some milk on my way home.

And by "fire-sale" you mean "getting stolen" and by "laptop" you mean "critical piece of a fucking spaceship".

Under the circumstances, I wouldn't ask any questions...

I bought some "Angry Birds" stuffed animals for my twin nieces. That's all they wanted for their birthday.

Those are so damn cute! And I'm 19 bloody years old. I was thinking of getting one for my neice too, but i couldn't fine them anywhere. All the electronic shops have them on display, but no one seem to sell them? Any chance you could help me out, luv'? Where did you get 'em?

EDIT: Cant go fully off topic can we? I bought a T-shirt that says "Baby Under Construction" for my sister in law. It has the construction crane, traffic cones and everything. Pretty shaz. Tried to find a pic on google but I got nothing.

Amazon. HERE.

They sell out pretty fast though. I was lucky to grab them when I did, because I was able to get free shipping on the ones they wanted.

I know very little about Wusthof knives. I bought it because it's like the knife Dexter uses in the credits for the show. And because I'm shallow that way.
Well, you picked a superior brand and the "Classic" series is pretty high end. I got a pretty good head start on my birthday, and now I'm focusing on the set of six Classic steak knives (pricey at around $200 for the set).
It finally arrived today: a very handsome knife indeed.

I don't actually have any tomatoes to cut, but it makes an excellent steak knife. That fork tip is very practical.

Also, now I need to start watching Dexter
Indeed you do.

Oh...because her character got to be with Bones, that's why! I don't take to his ladies well (kidding...sorta). But I have nothing against Emily Banks personally.

I take it that you are a big Barrows fan?

Last purchase: A "10 Reasons Why Kirk is Better than Picard" T-shirt.

my latest purchase comes today when I mail off the final payment to my lawyer ($300). Averaging $200/month for the last 18 months. He's worth every penny, but it will be good to have those monies going into savings, from here on, instead

2 pairs of glasses, I'll pick them up next week...
Both are regular glasses, but 2 very different models...
A light metallic frame and a big plastic frame, very similar to the one Charlie Sheen wore in "Major League", no skull-n-crosbones though...
