Twin Peaks (complete)
Rango (Blu-ray)
S1 of Nu-BSG
S1 of The Wire

Got really good deals on those last two through the Amazon second-hand market

That ought to keep me busy for a while!

I have never seen a single episode of Nu-BSG or The Wire

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Well I'm not sure why I did this, but just last Friday I picked up a Motorola Xoom 10.1 tablet, 32GB. And I already had an Ipad. A friend of mine and myself refer to this as the "sickness" in that we seem to have this compulsion to want to buy all kinds of electronic gadgetry even when we have no compelling reason to do so.

Luckily, it's a really suburban neighborhood and people just drive around him. I always worry that the guy will get hit, though. I see him rolling back to his house with a few plastic bags from the HEB or CVS on the corner.
Aren't there sidewalks where you live? Or at least a bike lane? I'm lucky I guess, my area has both so rolling in traffic isn't too much of a problem for me.

Nice Aviators.

Wish I could wear them myself, but they're just too big for my face and I look like a tool with them on. Plus they don't really go with what I wear. I might get a pair of Clubmasters when my current sunglasses need replacing though.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I went on a pretty serious shopping spree today.

Three bottles of wine.
A small wine rack.
A box of fennel tea.
A jar of three-fruit marmalade.
A jar of onion and calvados confit.
Two glass jars for spices.
Two tea towels.
F.E.A.R. 3 for PC.
A six-CD sampler of music by Chopin.
And both seasons of Carnivale on DVD.

Oh, and lunch, which was overpriced and underwhelming. But at least the shopping was good.

Personally I think the Clubmasters would suit you better, but if you really wish to have Aviators you can find them in very small sizes. I myself had to buy the 55mm size, which is already quite small, and they fit my face to a millimeter. They sell a 52mm as well, if I remember correctly, and they are available through online shopping sites, but difficult to find in eyewear shops and stores, which means you'd have to take a gamble without the chance to try them on first.

Picked up some colorful, satiny hipster panties from Soma, bought tickets and popcorn for all the nieces, nephews, etc at the movies, and then bought them all frozen yogurt--as it was 104 F degrees out this afternoon.

My Dead Space stuff finally arrived over the course of last week. Feeling pretty good about it.
