Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I bought some lemons and a jar of tahini.

I also bought a coconut and raw chocolate cube from the health food store which tantalized me by promising to be like a Bounty bar only better, fresher, purer. It wasn't. I am not a fan of sweet things but I cannot resist coconut which is one of my favorite ever flavors.

The post box had a bottle of Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude waiting for me, courtesy of ebay. This is my second bottle of this, it is a coconut musk.

The thing with coconut is it is quite mild so the search for a more intense coconut experience is always with me.

Sweeeet! How do you like it so far?
I haven't played with it much yet but so far so good. I like that I can use my speedlite for wireless flash now. Of course I still have to figure out how to use it properly!

Oh, I got this last Thursday:

Let us know when you've had a chance to fiddle around with it...

Didn't realise TNG was out on HD, so cool!

Just bought some overpriced patio furniture. Why is patio furniture so insanely expensive? "Here are some really ugly, uncomfortable chairs that will look like shit in a few months, all for the price of every other piece of furniture you own put together!"

That is exactly why I have never bought any of it.

Come to my house, you can sit outside on a crate.

I have a storage container that doubles as a seat right now.

We went back and forth on buying it. I've been stalking CL for weeks now but everything is either too big to fit in our car, too expensive, or too gross. I finally caved after the stuff I had been stalking at Target dropped ever further from its sale price.

Got me a ticket to the London Zoo today. It was quite cold but very sunny and I really enjoyed my day there.

Well, I'm thinking about it, anyway.
So what did you decide, Lumi? I really like it!

Booked my hotel rooms for my upcoming trip. Three nights in Baltimore (April 8-10), three in Philly (11-13). And both times they are literally right next door to the ballparks.
