Books about history!
Always a good purchase. If you can't find science fiction, that is.

Today, I bought nothing.

Saved alot of money that way.

Picked up this awesome sweater duster from Coldwater Creek's outlet. It was only $24, not including shipping & tax. I have a sweater duster in black and I LOVE it, but it's taken a beating over the last year or two. This brown one should do very nicely!

I just spent $269 on some Circulon Contempo cookware. It consists of

  • 1 x 16cm/1.9L Covered saucepan (includes glass lid)
  • 1 x 18cm/2.8L Covered saucepan (includes glass lid)
  • 1 x 24cm/5.7L Covered stock pot (includes glass lid)
  • 1 x 24cm/2.8L Covered sauté pan (includes glass lid)
  • 1 x 20cm French skillet
  • 1 x 24cm French skillet
I hope these are as good as all the reviews I read.

These were labeled for destruction due to some stupid recycling agreement. A box of them (~20pcs) were misplaced during transport. They're about a year old. Some of them were even NOS.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Spanish.

I took the Russian version out of the library, but I quickly figured out that I need my own copy so I can write notes in it, and the Spanish version is much cheaper, so I'm starting there.

I had a couple of boxes with my tapes in the cellar for a year or two before finally deciding to get rid of them...

...only took me two weeks before I missed some of the tapes for the first time

1Password is probably one of the most massively useful utilities I've ever known. I have it for my desktop iMac and my iPad, I just got it for the iPhone too. It remembers all your passwords, software licenses, credit cards, other IDs, etc.; helps you generate new and secure passwords; and is safe to use (it uses military-grade encryption which would take a million years to break). It's made by a company called AgileBits. Linky

Oh and I also just bought a CharmCard online so I'll have it ready when I visit Bawlmer in a few weeks! (Tried to get a TransPass for Philly but you can't buy them online. Not the weekly ones anyway. )

Yep, Winter it's called. It's a strange season when if you go outside without the proper protection pretty soon you don't feel your nose and your fingers. You also can see your breath coming out of your lungs like steam. I'm tellin' ya, it's just downright weird, it is.

Last year I experienced that very thing, but I called it "Chicago in April"...

I experienced that in Stockholm in April, by the way. Not. Nice.

Well don't let that scare you away. I don't know if it's always like that. It was when I was there, though. The reason I chose such an early time to go was this: it was the only time the whole baseball season that the Cubs and White Sox were in town the same week! (Didn't even get to see the ivy at Wrigley Field )
