Will be interested to hear what you make of it; I was thinking about picking it up myself at some point.

Made the most of the glorious Indian Summer we're having by having lunch al fresco at a local cafe, and then later cocktails in the early evening on the terrace of a favourite bar/restaurant. Highly productive fiscal expenditure.

A new battery for my toughbook. That ultra-super-duper military spec battery died on me... Still, it held for over nearly eight years. God bless the US Marine Corps!

How funny. I just got Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama and The Wire Seasons 1 &2. And two days ago, my boss gave me his old copy of John Adams by John McCollough!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

My favorite bookstore went out of business these days. Time to go hunting for treasures one last time.


German edition from the 70s, signed by Haldeman


Photo-Comics adapted from the TV series.


Yes, actual US editions of Perry Rhodan, published by the great, late Forry Ackerman


I didn't even know this existed. Daroooool!

Oh, and some new DVDs (twice "about time I finally got this", once "finally released":

Bought a coat rack this morning. The Doctor Who fans will appreciate this. I'll let the picture speak for itself. Its not a perfect match, but it's really close.

Dark grey pants and dark, dusty blue top, along with a pair of black Clark's that had a small heel. It was a good thing for the wake; I'll definitely wear the outfit again. Bought the clothes at Kohls for about 50 bucks (they were having a sale) and the shoes at Fabulous Footwear, also for around 50 bucks (59, I think).

The shoes were very comfy, the perfect thing for my seriously screwed up feet.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

The proxy service was a success, so I'm getting an ultra light down jacket as well to satisfy my inner 1970s space man:



Makes me think of either 2001:A Space Odyssey or Space:1999.
