Some perennials for my front yard. (Thank goodness I have a friend who loves gardening so much that she's happily doing all the digging and planting that I can't do myself.)

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I won an ebay auction for a copy of "Star Fleet Officer Requirements" the precursor to the Line/Staff officer requirements books which were the precursor to the Star Fleet Dynamics book.

I'm so far down the geek hole here, but I can't wait for it to get here next week.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

ok, thought i'd do a little review here... so this is day 2 of using the Samsung Galaxy note... and god, i could not go back to another phone now lol

i tried picking up the Galaxy S2 i previously had, the thing felt tiny in my hand, like i was going to break it or something lol

Definitely sticking with this phone... grabbed a 64gb memory card to stick in it, so added to the 16gb of on board storage, it's happily bouncing around 80gb of storage for me to play with now... still fast as hell, and i'm actually happily surprised at the battery life, seeing as it's such a frickin' huge phone and screen, nearly 6 inches of screen lol, i figured it would kill the battery very quickly...

Just so you can see a size comparison... this is the Galaxy side by side with an Iphone4...



See what i mean?!? lol

not so... if anything, i'd say the battery actually lasts longer than the Galaxy S2... i've had it on charge overnight yesterday, it's now nearly 2am so, 26 hours later, and it's hovering around the 50% area... so not too bad at all

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Went to my book store to pre-order The Hydrogen Sonata only to find I was way too early for it

While there I picked up a couple of other volumes that had arrived for me:

Greg Bear: The forge of God.
&
Stephen Baxter: Evolution (I'm actually a bit surprised by the size of this one ).

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I followed some friends to Bedrock City comics, fully expecting to be bored silly, but found something I simply HAD to have.
This cute-patootey:

Not only is it Sallah, who is played by my much-beloved John Rhys-Davies, but it's from Indiana Jones (Last Crusade, this one). I love anything and everything associated with Indy. Plus, it's so damn freakin' CUTE!

We went out to lunch, and I had to take him out of the box, so he could have Mongolian Stir Fry with us. You know, as you do.
