Bought a few books at the library sale today, and picked up a cute, square glass pendant necklace at the neighborhood arts & crafts sale.

Hubby picked up some spices and a box of cinnamon muffin mix.

Well, to be honest it wasn't quite that amazing... I remember you mentioned liking J&M at some point in the past, and every shoe maker tends to photograph their shoes from a very slightly different angle for their catalogues, so if you're seen them at some point, that creates a visual memory associated with the maker. From there, it wasn't difficult to put 2+2 together.
So you're saying I'm predictable, then?



Picked this up yesterday. A mom of one of the boys on my oldest son's football team does kiln fired glass art. The colors change depending on how it catches the light.

Awesome! It's singleplayer-only, isn't it?
It's single player, but it has a co-op option. So you can actually play with a friend as long as he or she is sitting next to you...

I had a 10 dollars coupon for Kohl's, so I picked up some pjs and some fuzzy socks; with the coupon, it came to about 25 bucks.

I received a kakapo toy in the post today. This is what he looks like.



I have named him Rangi after a kakapo who was discovered on Codfish Island (New Zealand) but later hid from rangers for 21 years before being rediscovered in 2009.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Just some light grocery shopping today.

I note in passing that the supermarkets in the UK are currently having fun with a price war. Local example: a nearby Sainsburys is temporarily closed for a few days while a big refurb completes. In the meantime, the local Tesco sends out multiple "£5 off a £20 shop" coupons, dated for one of each of the next 4 weeks, in order to make the most of the shutdown and to prevent any defectors to the new bigger Sainsburys. Plus, the Tescos just put up a big clubcard sign-up stand to lure any shoppers forced to go to Tescos who would normally go the temporarily closed Sainsbury. All good fun to see a bit of lively competition!

That's quite the cool - and expensive - collection you're building up!

Here's a question I've often wondered about in those dark moments in the middle of the night: how do you hone a serrated knife with a steel? Is it even possible?

I always hone my regular knives before use, but I can't say I've ever tried it on a serrated knife. It seems like it would actually dull the edge. My bread knife isn't dull yet, but I wonder what I'll do when it does lose its edge...

Just pre-ordered Mass Effect 3. I don't often preorder games, but this one was always going to be a certainty.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^ I should be doing that too.

In the meantime I got me an Abercrombie & Fitch winter jacket, a Dix Range that I had wanted for quite some time, but it was always sold out whenever I went to buy it.
Love it. So warm and light.
