Apart from lunch and a coffee, just some fruits and salad ingredients. Black grapes are the awesome. Why are they so much tastier than all other grapes? One of life's little mysteries...

After a few near-purchases and changes of heart, I finally got a wi-fi Bluray player on Black Friday.

Last month, I think, I started a thread that I was considering getting an LG washer - (condensation) dryer combo....

I ordered it from Home Depot today. It will be delivered around the 15th, when the contractor should be mostly finished remodeling my kitchen.

^ I remember the thread. LG should be decent enough; hope you have many years of use from it.

Didn't buy much today other than ingredients for dinner with a friend: partridges and things to make a pretty damn good chestnut stuffing to go with the roasted birds. Went damn well with a really nice glass of 20 year old Burgundy.

I just went in to a newsagent and bought a dozen bananas, now I'm wondering if I can legitimately eat a dozen bananas before they go off. I think, yes - at least, I'm up for the adventure.

An Amazon Kindle 2. The US version unfortunately. Nonetheless, it was a bargain.

All right! Have tons of fun and bring a lot of cash... I have a feeling you'll need it.

I got some groceries and good things, including coconut water, blueberries, salame felino and a jar of 18+ Manuka honey. I'm trying to fight off a cold and it's supposed to be miraculous. We'll see.

Did some Christmas shopping over the weekend: Got the Wii Fit Plus for my sister and brother-in-law as well as some moisturizer for myself. Still have a ways to go...

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought a couple of gadgets I needed anyway: battery screwdriver/drill. I guess I bought the old one a tiny bit too cheap. Although getting eight years of use out of it was pretty cool when you add that the new one was equally cheap...
One of those gadgets that measure the electricity used by any gadget you plug into it (I'm thinking that I have a couple of stand-by traps I need to look into).
A pocket size multimeter -the one I have I built myself ages ago and it isn't pocket size.

And, since they were marked considerably down, I also got a couple of halloween decorations

Impressive, but you'll need Zoolook too in order to have a JMJ basics set (imho of course) -it's the one where he introduces vocals.
