You lucky bastard. They're show-accurate! Seriously, those are better representations of the on-screen characters than the Hasbro toys.
You bet they are, and I was willing to give up my blu-ray copies of "Avatar", "Serenity", and "Get Smart" just to own them! I should have them in a week or so, and I can't wait!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I got a gold plated Certina Automatic Blue Ribbon for roughly 4€ today at the local flea market. Far from perfect condition, i'd estimate a B3 or possibly a B2. Depending on how its looks after i cleaned it. But i know a guy who can do wonders with watch casings. Mechanically it runs fine and its accurate as hell.

FYI: A good A1 or A2 condition goes for roughly 800-900€ on various auction sites.

7" Wusthof Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku

Interesting. I recently purchased a Wusthof tomato knife:



I know very little about Wusthof knives. I bought it because it's like the knife Dexter uses in the credits for the show. And because I'm shallow that way.

Actually, I started out with a cheap Chinese plastic-handled tomato knife, and found it quite useful. So I decided to upgrade.

(But mostly because of Dexter)

Well, you picked a superior brand and the "Classic" series is pretty high end. I got a pretty good head start on my birthday, and now I'm focusing on the set of six Classic steak knives (pricey at around $200 for the set).

Also, now I need to start watching Dexter

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I had the window wide open and it was pouring down straight onto the telly. (i have it right beside the window) couldve just as well taken the garden hose and drowned it. Same bloody effect.

The only other telly i know that survived this is my old panasonic from 1982 i believe. First color telly panasonic made. Survived two years on th balcony. Snow, rain, you name it.

I have that knife also. It was an anniversary present from friends of ours who love to cook. I use the knife all the time--very handy, very easy to use. They gave us the 7" and the paring knife. I love them.

I just bought a book on one of my favorite architects William Pereria. I've gotten the book on Inter-Library Loan before, but for some reason I'm only just now buying it.

Trust me, it'll wear off. Soon you'll have divorce layers on speed dial.

You know when you want to download something from the web, like a zip file, or a torrent and it shoves a few thousand pay apps in your face that never work? And then your arse clams up and you get this strange feeling in your stomach? You just want to scream but nobody hears ya? Like you're locked away in a dark room with nobody to help ya? And then on top of it all there is this dripping tap in the room that drives you insane? Yeah? That's what it feels like after a month.


Bying an iphone and an ipad are the two biggest mistakes i made regarding technology. I got rid of the ipad but i still have a subscription for the iphone.
