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!
Your mom has good taste; I love See's, too!
I picked up a box of their rectangle lollies under the pretense that I'm going to share them with the nieces and nephew.

IBecause I know that Holdfast will ask


1 - Nice in itself, though I have a somewhat similar one and find it surprisingly had to work into an outfit without it overwhelming everything else. Bright red ties are quite tricky items; I find it's often easier to wear them to smart dinners or outside meetings, rather than in day to day work.

2 - I like. Good to use in more casual/odd-jacket combos too. Burnt orange is such a warm colour.

3 - Nice for spring/summer. Would be great with a linen jacket or suit I think.

4 - Not personally keen on, but probably versatile with both a wide range of greys and blue.

5 - Will be nice against either navy or charcoal grey suits.

6 - Assuming the background is a kind of mahogany/maroony sort of colour, I think this is my favourite. Conservative, versatile and professional. I can see it working with some more casual variants too.

^ I still cant believe people can actually speak that bloody language. I mean, I'm pretty good at learning new languages, but Hebrew basically tied a knot on me tongue. Utterly hopeless...

OnT: Bought a 32gb samsung microsd memory card for the Galaxy Gio I got for Christmas.

Me iPhone died a week before Christmas, a few days after the warranty ended. At least it died conveniently, right before i was about to call an ambulance... Thank god me boss makes me carry a work mobile as well.

An ambulance? Oh my! I hope everyone is OK.


Our purchase for the day: on the drive up 71, we stopped at Hruska's (which was actually OPEN!) and picked up soda for us, and some chocolate macaroons for my mom.

Oh, yes. A broken arm, cracked ribs and various cuts and bruises. Only reason we needed an ambulance is because there was a kid involved. Adults can tell you where it hurts. Some basic first aid and you can patch em up, but kids just scream.

Some idiot suicidal kamikaze pedestrian ran over the road, the driver saw him too late, panicked, pulled left and hit an oncoming car head on.

Its strange really, why people pull left when they panic. Personally I always pull right when shit hits the fan. Rather a ditch and trashed bodywork than a head on collision and possibly lose me passengers.

4 tickets to Tin Tin in 3D, two buckets of popcorn for the four of us, 4 small drinks, 4 Jamba Juices, a pack of bubble gum for the boy and new sunglasses for one of the girls.

Cost a small fortune.
