Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Bought a new Christmas tree, and a Crock Pot buffet set (three small pots on one stand). It will be great for serving side dishes at Thanksgiving and Christmas!

I love Madame Alexander dolls! I have about thirty of them in my collection- my favorite is the 21-inch Cissy in a Jessica McClintock-designed gown.

Being taken to Goodwill is about as sad as a little tree's life can get. But it's better than being thrown out.

I ought to confess I do most of my "me" shopping there - I can't rationalize paying retail for a lot of stuff. And I do feel good about "recycling" a lot of stuff that is perfectly good!

My little dollies are from the International group too. Thank you!

Just book a cookbook and a PSP game for a friend---she has a birthday in December, so I have to shop for both her birthday present and her Christmas present.

50 render minutes for Halo: Reach replays on Bungie.net for $4.99 US.

I should really get a TV capture card again.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Didn't buy anything big this week, but I'm thinking about getting a new dinner jacket (tuxedo to the yanks). My current one is OK, but the material isn't very lush, and there are a couple of fit issues that slightly bug me and put me off going to black tie events as often as I would like.

So I went round my favourite outlet mall the other day to see if I could find a bargain. Saw a beautiful midnight navy one with perfect formal details in every respect in Valentino... but not in my size. That was my favourite one but I found saw a gorgeously dramatic one in Zegna and they even had my size... but the fit wasn't right. There was a dearth of anything I liked in my size in Loro Piana, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren. So I think I'm going to order one from my tailor instead. They're offering a discount on made-to-measure suits this month, so I think I'll order one next week.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

My “Timmy Time” throws came in. Very cute, soft, and warm without being stifling.

I also ordered some Wallace & Gromit stamps from the Royal Mail. Not sure the $ amount because cost and shipping are in pounds, but I figure that’s cheaper than through ebay or a stamp trader.

Got a book for my bf, little present. No, I don't feel guilty about something, just wanted to do something nice for the nerd I love.

I'm jealous. Even though I bought all the original ADV releases (when it was like $30 for 4 episodes), I am seriously considering buying the new DVD set. But man, I'd really love this show to come out on Blu-Ray!

Oh yeah, you're in for some fun. I bought that when I came out this time last year, and spent the next few months getting reacquanited with it.

I forgot how good it was too. It's no Babylon 5 or Star Trek, but it is a close third.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Picked up a WWII era Sheaffer Triumph at an antique store for under $10. It's a Vacuum filler, which are notorious for needing refurbishment by the time they are over 60 years old. This one, as I discovered when I got it home and cleaned it up, is working perfectly. Hopefully the seals last and don't give out on me suddenly.
