Hope you have lots of fun at the wedding though, and best wishes for the couple.

Ten new STAR WARS action figures from my friend's toy shop, all ones I didn't have before.
You must have quite the collection by now. Do you display them, or hoard them in a giant safe, occasionally swimming amongst them in McDuckesque fasion?


A mixture of different methods. Out on open display, stored in boxes, tucked away inside plastic tubs and containers and stuffed inside drawers. Whatever's most practical and the easiest, really.

2013 Mustang 305 convertible.

And of course, I got rear-ended on the Capital Beltway five days after I drove it off the lot. I probably won't get it back from GEICO's body shop until Monday.

Thanks! I just got my invitation in the mail yesterday. I mailed out the RSVP, but I also created an appointment for it in my Google Calendar... and then I invited my sister and her fiancé to join me.

My brother and sister-in-law both have access to my GCalendar so I use it to tease her all the time. They got married a year ago in a very big celebration and I had put the event in my calendar as "Some wedding or something." I love sharing calendars.

A box almonds, cashews and pistachios, which I hope will arrive at my parent's house by Father's Day.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Last week I bought the TNG films on Blu-Ray (Amazon had a special deal). Saturday, I bought some coffee and yogurt at Starbucks for breakfast, and chipped in for the pizza lunch we had during our Alien/Predator marathon.

Yesterday, I bought some popcorn and a root beer at Prometheus, and then later some dinner for my date and I.

Today, I bought another coffee for my co-worker and I, plus a Starbucks gift card for her (today's her birthday.)

I'm looking forward to NOT spending any more money for the next few days.

Cherries are ON SALE. BOUGHT LIKE SIX BAGS OF FRESH CHERRIES.

Sorry for caps, I'm excited. They are so freaking expensive.

Another Star Wars figure from my friend's local shop. Also, a little gas for the car and a few snacks.
