Very unexpected, but soooo beautiful. It's a Storm watch, they call it the Darcy. The picture doesn't do it any justice.

That's really sharp looking.
Thanks!
I'm lovin' it, I wear it every day.

Congrats on the new lawnmower. It looks like a sports car, all red and shiny.

A pair of Under Armour flat front slacks which would look great if not for the stupid logo on the ankle.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

As per my friend's instructions, I bought myself this suit. I am standing up in his wedding, and instead of renting tuxedos, he has decided that we all just going to wear matching suits that we can keep.

I got my father the complete Sopranos on DVD for Father's Day.

I bought several dolls for myself so I can make TOS costumes for them.

^ Because you have impeccable taste?

Thanks!

Are those 2TB disks 2.5" or 3.5"? I'm always looking for portable drives that are USB powered.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

You must show us the finished thing(s) -just the idea of using ^those for that purpose is brilliant
Reminiscent, though, of the fashions seen in Terry Gilliams Brazil:

Won't argue with that!

No: thank you!

I bought a "DiskStation" some weeks ago, four (max 3 TB) 3,5" HDDs fit into the device this one is the third time I install yet another new drive (@ ~ ½ the price I opted for a 2 TB rather than a 3 TB drive, of course).

Hmmm, not knowing what you need portable drives for I suggest that you get a device not entirely unlike the one I linked to (a review of), that way your data from home can be accessed on-line from anywhere you are.
