A Baltimore Colts t-shirt off ebay. The REAL Colts, not the fake ones that exist today.
Cool!

I bought two ceiling fans today, for the living room and kitchen.

Three sets of shower/bath fixtures and three new faucets (in lovely satin nickel).

Oh, and a secondhand iPod nano on eBay, to replace the one I lost!

I got a little Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer Christmas decoration for my mum. It's cute as a button... and I hope she'll like it. My mum can be a bit difficult at times.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a new French Press yesterday. After trying out a cheap starter model, and liking it, I decided to spend the money on a 1.5L Bodum Chambord.

I also bought an airtight jar in which to store coarse-ground coffee. I plan to bick up a burr grinder of my own soon, but I need one that's fairly quiet, and they're expensive.

Did my Christmas shopping by ordering a large hamper of various goodies to be divvied up on arrival, and a mixed case of wine. That should cover just about everybody who needs a present.

Long time no see. Nice to see you posting.

I must admit, I've never been able to justify paying for the fancier collar stiffeners. I mean, they're never seen so I can't bring myself to pay for the pearl/silver/gold ones. More money for the shirts themselves that way!

I stick with the regular plastic ones and try my damnedest to remember to take them out before washing, so as not to lose them.

Nice.

I'm about to sign a contract Monday to have my kitchen remodeled, so there's a long list of latest purchases coming...

The Sound of Music Bluray box set (FYI: great picture, you can see the blades of grass as they swayed in the wind during the singing of "The Sound of Music) And the Bluray "Back To The Future" box set which also looks great.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I bought a few chosen ingredients so that tonight I could bake me some oatmeal and raisin cookies.

They came out delicious.

Fun. The Sound of Music is still one of my top three or so favorite movies.
