Some people seem to put their stuff through harder usage than others. I've a friend who's been through 4 laptops while I've had the one. Also, luck plays its part, some poor folks seem to be consistently unlucky.

Went out for some mid-season boots to traipse through parks with the kids, but the only pair I liked was sold out in my size, came home with a Nando's takeaway dinner instead.

Volume II of the Loeb Classical Edition of Appian's Roman History.

I need it for a paper I'm writing and unfortunately inter-library loan failed this time around.

Satanism & Demonology
Devils, Demons & Witchcraft

I read a little around alchemy this time last year, and a bit of Aquinas later on, so figured I may as well fill in the gaps. These concepts make for some interesting psychological motifs, which is what interests me about them. The first book sounds like a good introductory overview and the second should have lots of interesting artwork.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Found the shoes I wanted after all - yay! Needed something with a firm grip that would stay warm and dry through autumn/winter and won't suffer too badly if they get wet or muddy.



Been having a lot of ginger drinks lately - grating it by hand then cooking it in water to get all the flavour out - found myself grating my fingers all too often, very messy labour-heavy job, finally decided it was about time we went for a juicer. Read some reviews and settled on this:



Juiced apple, carrot, ginger and cucumber earlier this evening, and it's opened up a world of fruits and vegetables I normally couldn't consider with just a blender, I'm hooked already! And my fingers are thanking me. I guess I'm now officially a health nut.

Tell that to my boss! He wants wooden coffee stirrers, not spoons!
That was easy.

I was in Staples yesterday and saw them.

Some say the essence of success is timing.

Weird coincidence is that just a few weeks ago I was thinking of junking this 10yr old one. Glad I kept it now; definitely got me out of a hole!
Now you've just validated every pack rat on the board and given them justification to hold on to every outdated piece of technology they've ever owned. "No, really honey, rotary dial phones are making a comeback".
