Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I miserably failed to buy anything more than brunch today.

I spent the afternoon trawling well over a dozen shops looking for the perfect navy overcoat, and came away empty-handed. It was impossible to find the right combination of size, fit, style, fabric and detailing. I think I'll forget about it for this year, and might order something specific next year instead.

We got it all loaded up and had a lot of fun with it after work, but it still needs to get where its going and since my older HD weighs a thousand frakkin' pounds, I'm gonna have to wait until my son gets over here.

You didn't have a CRT HD, did you? I've seen those. I really think they did weigh that much. They were about the size of a damn TANK.

Yeah, that's the one. Sony Wega is amazing HD but way too large for our tiny living room. Backbreaking to move, though.

A Corsair Flash Voyager 16gb USB 3.0 thumb drive. I love it. Rugged and waterproof, works great with my Panasonic Toughbook.

I'm watching thru it for the first time right now, after getting it cheap on Amazon a few weeks ago. It's interesting and frustrating all at once - I keep bumping up against the writers' creative choices vs. the Bible record. I don't think I'd be as interested in the show if it weren't based on David's life.

It was ridiculously cheap at $9, and still ridiculously cheap at its current $10.80.

And, yeah, I was interested in the show despite the Biblical influences too. Didn't have high expectations in general for the show when it was airing, but ended up being pretty impressed by it.
