Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^ Now THERE'S A THOUGHT!!

I picked myself up a little something from Coldwater Creek; they're having a 40% off & free shipping sale. I decided to be bold and NOT buy something blue, teal or even turquoise. I picked up this:

I can change the colour from red to blue and everything in-between...

Here is a overview of it:

^Very cool! *So jealous* I would never be able to convince hubby to get that. But I love the lights, and the fact that the keyboard is quiet. My keyboard and mouse and pretty cheap, so they're kind of loud; it sounds like I'm using a typewriter.

Just ordered some jeans though Amazon. My mailman and UPS man are probably cussing me, I've been ordering so much lately.

I got some recorders, flute, and some other musical instruments with instruction books so I can teach myself. The recorder is coming along nicely. I also got a couple of cuddle cups for my guinea pigs to enjoy.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I picked up some ties on sale last week. Combining the sale with a preferred customer bonus offer, I ended up getting 6 for the price of 2. Merry Christmas to me.

Because I know that Holdfast will ask:

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I wound up buying Community: Season 2 the other day because I'd ordered it online as a gift for a friend but was worried it wouldn't arrive in time for our group's annual holiday party on Saturday... and it arrived in the mail about five minutes after I got home from buying copy #2. Oh well.

I picked up a couple boxes of See's Candies for my mother - she loves them - as well as a few last minute gifts for my sister and her fiance. Definitely looking forward to seeing the family for the holiday!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

The postman just brought me this




Sorry about the crappiness of the photo, I used my cheapo camera rather than go into the other room and retrieve my good camera.

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. A Christmas present to myself. Three large, hardbook volumes in a cover. 1456 pages. The set weights 10.2 kg. I bought it on Amazon UK for 43 pounds which is around $78 AUS (price has now risen to now 50 pounds). I got free postage. The set is listed on the US Amazon for $91.77 so I think I got them for a very good price.

Now I am going to wrap them and put them under the tree and act surprised when I open them on Xmas morning I plan to spend some of Christmas Day reading them.
