Seriously? A GPS? Has the entire world gone mad? What would possibly compel the designers to put a GPS in a camera?

You know what kind of camera I use?

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

About a month ago I bought a Core i3 based Home Theater PC. I love it way more than I thought I would. It's just a really pretty user interface (I use Mediaportal) and my Blu-ray backups play instantly and with no disc loading time.

The gps is there so it can (optionally) geotag your pictures so you can know exactly where they were taken and share them on a map etc.

Apparently it also has a library of "interesting" places and it will display what place you are taking a picture of if it has the place in its memory.

^ Nice toy.

I got a whole lot of groceries today, including a treat for myself, a tray of cherries!
Hopefully I won't have to go back for more groceries for a few days at least.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I finally took advantage of the sales today and ended up buying a new sweater and a new pair of shoes.
It's the first time I buy a Geelong Wool sweater, I'm used to other wools like cashmere, merino, lambswool. I hope it's as comfortable.
And it's also the first time I order a pair of shoes from Amazon, even though I did try them on in a shop previously, so hopefully that'll go well, too. Fingers crossed.

Should be. IIRC, Geelong just another breed of sheep, in the same way that Merino is. Both are historically known for produing higher quality wool than some other breeds. If there's an additional designation (e.g. fine, superfine, ultrafine, etc), that tells you the approximate range of fibre width in the garment. Geelong, like Merino, tends to produce more of the thinner/finer threads while still retaining strength. Cashmere, from the eponymous goat, also tends to be predominaantly composed of finer strands than regular wool. Assuming equal processing/treatment, finer strands tend to feel softer, which accounts for these fabrics being more highly sought after.

^ It says that it is "finest quality 7gg 100% Geelong Wool". I tend to trust Hackett's quality anyway, since it is after all made in Italy.

A ticket to War Horse, which I enjoyed, and then quick trip to the grocery store for fish, pasta, veggies and soda.

My day off wasn't a total waste.

Went back to Hackett yesterday for a second round of the sales, came out with a lovely lambswool zipper. Now I should be done.

Last night, we did some grocery shopping and picked up an Amazon gift card for a friend/co-worker of Hubby's.
