^Well, that's probably why you haven't sorted it yet; it's really more a job for seven year old girls, isn't it?

Some Amazon gift cards and a few dvds for my nieces' upcoming birthday. Their fraternal twins but have their parties on different weekends, so I thought I better get the gifts out early.

Thanks. The books were a fun project I did a couple months ago when I was rearranging my bedroom. Here are some better pics of them (they are level, it's just my crappy phone camera that makes them look a bit wonky!):

A new watch battery--about 10 bucks at Penney's. Then I went to Subway, because I COULD, and bought myself some lunch--about 8 bucks.

I should run out and get gas--the tank has only 40 miles worth left in it; I would've done it earlier but there were huge lines at the station for some reason.

Bit off topic, but re: the bit I bolded, I tried on a couple of vicuna items in Dunhill last year. I was pretty sceptical - the eternal buzz is that vicuna is softer than even the finest cashmere and the finest fabric you can get at about 10 microns roughly* - but it really does have a genuinely wonderful hand to it.

Of course, then I looked at the price tags and put them back on the rack. There's a reason the shop assistant in Sunset Boulevard only recommends taking the vicuna if the lady is paying! Genuinely high quality cashmere (rather than the coarser stuff) from a top Scottish or Italian mill is still only a mere fraction of the price of vicuna... I think the vicuna overcoat I tried on was something around £20-30k and the jacket in the region of £10-15k (can't remember exact figures). Of course, at this level, cost comparisons become inexact/non-meaningful because normal price elasticity curves don't apply, but still, vicuna is genuinely rare and I think Loro Piana have something of a lock on its milling because they cut a deal with the Peruvian Government re: sourcing the rare wool, which helps keep prices high. Talking of LP, I was sorely tempted to buy a vicuna scarf from them a while back before sense returned. One day, I would like to have more money than sense.

(*allegedly, IIRC shatoosh is even finer but its trade is highly illegal so I've no experience as to whether that's true)
