Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I have just purchased a kindle book, The Given Land by Thomas Allen which I plan to start reading today. The book is set in New Zealand

For thousands of full-rounds birds have lived peacefully in the Given Land. On their secluded island, they have evolved a unique culture, with Walkers and Flyers both living without fear of Four-Feet-and-Fur.

But now the Four-Feet-and-Fur known as koretake have discovered them. Driven from his home, Eldest with Feathers reluctantly leads the kiwi Waro on a mission to deliver the news of the invasion to the capital city of Marahau. With koretake dogging their footsteps, the Walkers undertake a daunting journey spanning the length of the Given Land—a journey that will end only in a shattering confrontation on the Plains of Marahau.
Eldest with Feathers is a kakapo and Four-Feet-and-Fur is a stoat.

Picked up a Belleek coffee mug for my mother-in-law and a dvd for my mom--all paid for with Amazon points from my credit card. So, that's two Christmas gifts taken care, completely for free.

I probably bought out Michaels' entire stock of cookie baking supplies. Lots of icings, sugars, and a linzer cookie cutter set.

Picked up a nice tray and some ornaments for a friend's Christmas present at World Market---along with some nice yummy things for us and the relatives. Then we hit the store and bought about 100 bucks worth of groceries, but some of that was stocking up for Thanksgiving.

I love World Market. I need to go there before Christmas to get special treats I can't get any other time of year (except maybe through amazon.com).

Today I bought a cute Christmas long sleeve t-shirt.

That's quite a funky style; I like.




Not much today; tea & a bacon sarnie for lunch plus a few odds & sods from Boots. And a haircut, which I'm really pleased with. I usually just get it cut reasonably short and comb it backwards (vaguely Gekko-esque without the grease), but today the barber cut it in a more typical side-parting and with my somewhat receding hairline it's ended up looking a little bit like Bruce Willis in Lucky Number Slevin though my hairline isn't quite as bad as his in that photo. It took me ages to figure out who the haircut reminded me of!

I like it, and the cut has a healthy amount of volume built into it too (I have quite thin/dry hair, so this is rare for me). Might keep it this way for a while. I haven't had a side-parting since before my hairline started receding and funnily enough it looks a lot better now than it did back then. Wouldn't have guessed that.

I love them! What color did you get? Realistically, I would've bought black, but, OMG, the red ones are gorgeous.
