Got sandwiches for everyone last night, and picked up some shower curtains for my parent's home.

Very nice...so now we know what your sitting on inside the bottom half of that Dalek base in your avatar.

Is it comfortable, it looks very comfortable in the pics, lots of nice padding, my old one was so bare on padding it could be called a tree on wheels.

I did some shopping in Austria today. I got two pairs of pants, a few shirts, and four Blu-rays:
- Avatar (the one with all three versions)
- Love and Other Drugs
- Resident Evil: Afterlife
- Transformers: Dark of the Moon

I also got Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Battlefield 3 for PS3 in the mail.

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Now you've just validated every pack rat on the board and given them justification to hold on to every outdated piece of technology they've ever owned.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".
Wouldn't it be awesome if mobile phones came with a giant rotary dial slap bang in the middle of their face?

Hey, don't laugh. They'll probably be standard issue on 25th century Federation ships.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Oh I'm laughing with you guys. A few months ago, my dad sent out one of his old tape recorders to me so I could listen to some of my old mix tapes I made when in high school. In the process, I found a bunch of recordings of my high school jazz combo (for which I played trumpet during all four years) and hadn't heard in YEARS, assuming they'd been lost. Epic win, says I. EPIC WIN!

That's pretty cool. Makes me want to see if I can find vids of any of my old school plays in the attic when I next visit my dad.

Some box cutters and some Subway sandwiches. The joys of helping people unpack....
