I bought this:

It's a Teclast P76TI Android tablet. I just got it in the mail Saturday. So far it seems really nice (especially for the price).

Yes, four cats. *sigh*

EDIT: Yer getting ICS for that tablet, mate.

Well... these were gifts, but I figure they sort of count.

I just couldn't mask my excitement!...

This glass floor vase. I'm using it to corral my two canes, a rainstick and a piece of driftwood.

A rare treat, oh so good (and light, so that it only has about 11 sugars in it!)

Hubby finally bought us an exercise bike. He is currently in the spare room, swearing up a storm, as he tries to assemble it.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I had finally saved enough, to go purchase the TV-set I've wanted since they started making them a couple of years ago, last week: the Philips 58PFL9955H/12.

It is kinda nice to use my TV-remote to take my TV-set (wireless) on-line to find and play media-files from my PC and/or server - it certainly beats using one of the DVI outputs on my graphics card to hook up to the HDMI on the TV

Now all I need is the 5.1 speakers

But apparently not all file-formats and codecs play on Philips hardware, so I had to also buy a small LG media player (LG DP1W) to watch media encoded in certain ways (and to watch '.srt'-subtitles).

Hey auntiehill!

Sweet tv, dude!
It most certainly is; perfect thing for watching Star Trek films on


Going from a twenty-some inches analogue glass-tube (16:9) to a 58" LED-lit LCDisplay (21:9) was a bit of an upgrade for me... now I just wonder why I didn't do it a lot earlier

I've never seen him in the WoW thread in gaming.

(J.Allen, are you a Worgen?)

Oh and on topic today I bought some socks. And some wonton soup.

Sort of want. My ex and I used to get those Strawberry ones since she loved them, but it took me ages to finish them for the sweetness, but that does look pretty tempting.

That Frappuccino is looking good right about now...

Last thing I bought was a bunch of toothpaste and mouthwash.

My only purchases lately have been a good pair of leather gloves and a light grey coat.
