I went on an eBay buying spree the other night, buying 9 old movies on DVD:

To Catch a Thief, To Kill a Mockingbird, Marnie, Rope, Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, Harvey, Fantastic Voyage and Cinderfella.

I can't wait till they get here. I'm sooo going to veg on the couch and not move.
I like most of those, but am really fond of Rope. Brilliantly executed and wonderfully theatrical (the costuming is also top-notch).

What a fantastic selection! Tough to pick a favourite. I haven't seen Fantastic Voyage though, something to add to the list of films I'd like to see.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I discovered something absolutely delicious... and it was in front of my eyes all this time and I never tried it before, silly me.
Yesterday I decided that I was in the mood for something porky and new, so I got me Marks & Spencer Crispy Smoked Bacon Strips.



I think I found my crack and heroin and ecstasy all in one.

MORE!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Does paying my little brother $5 to get up and make me a pot of coffee considered a 'purchase?'

What can I say, I'm a giving big sister, if not a lazy one.

I love how you notice the costuming!

Thanks! I'm excited and can't wait to get them. You MUST see Fantastic Voyage. It's a classic and one of my favorite sci-fi films from my childhood. Watching Raquel Welch get attacked by white blood cells is GREAT!

Awesome.


My newest purchase is an ebay find. It's a mens large, so it's a bit bulky on me. I was able to shrink it down a little bit, so i can still wear a sweatshirt underneath it.

Says the guy with the Star Trek tattoo.

Yep, Star Trek "nerdy" for 44 years and proud of it!


And if you think THAT one's nerdy, you should see my other jacket:

I think the fact that it's denim ups the nerdiness of it for me.

You know you want one.


Now if i had bought one in black satin (plenty of those on ebay), THAT would SCREAM nerd, if you ask me!

I'm a child of the 60s. Denim is second skin.

I hadda go buy one of these:


(Site of the manufacturer)


I can't really decide if I like the camouflage or if I think it's over the top! -I mean; it's funny -but it's funny in a slightly childish way -especially considering the device is going to have a place in a kitchen-drawer.

On Friday I ordered the Ron Jones TNG CD soundtrack set. I can't wait for it to arrive. I've been listening to my other TNG CD's in anticipation.
