YESTERDAY:

A tall cafe latte
A soap dish
A toothbrush holder
A soap dispenser
Two bottles of anti-freeze
Tickets to see "The Artist"
Two cafe mochas.
While I read that I kept wanting to read some line ending in ...priceless!

Yesterday I was on a short excursion across the border to Germany and brought back a nice little pack of German delikatessen, some inexpensive liquor and a few other nice things.

MOT for the car. Nothing requiring attention right now, happily, so it passed OK.

They did flag up that the suspension bushes visually appear "deteriorated, but full normal travel" but since I haven't noticed any problems with them, I'm not going to bother doing anything for them for a while. Also, the garage suggested there may be a very mild oil leak from the engine but as the level is perfectly normal, they didn't think it needed any serious/immediate attention.

Well it was a new laptop-- but I might have to ship it back thanks to the fact some a-hole has demanded that my wife be fired for his fuck up.

Lumi, you have one cute guinea pig there! There are several good sites on the web for guinea pig care. http://www.guinealynx.info/ and www.guineapigcages.com are two of the best.
Thanks! He's adorable but totally scared... doesn't like to be held so far. Hoping he will calm down a bit, he's only 4.5 months old.

Thanks for the links. Looking at the first site now. I've been to the second site and plan on buying some of those cube things to use for an indoor run, which we will move outside to the grass in the warmer weather.

Bought myself a little bit of shiny: a silver necklace with little bits of blue glass, at the Sherwood Faire.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Just bought a new marshal uniform for the new season. My last jacket, well, sorta burned up. ES marshals don't actually need flame retardant apparel, but I figured I'd rather err on the side of caution. I feel like I've been robbed... No price is too high for safety I suppose.

Picked up a dark green v-neck sweater for only 20 bucks (shipping including) from Coldwater Creek. They're having a 40% off everything sale.
