    I wanted Robert L. Forward's Dragon's Egg but my book-dealer couldn't find it for me in their network (I even had them call their head-office) :klingon: This has happened quite a few times to me recently: The inability of my dealer is coupled with my finding of the very same book for sale on-line when I get home... :sigh: I really need some plastic to pay with...

    Anyway, I rarely leave the (a!) book store empty handed and found "A Game of Groans" by George R. R. Washington ( :rofl: ).
    Here's something from the back of the cover:


    I just happened to also pick up a tea-brewing machine from a discount store on my way home. And some groceries.

    Some groceries, gas for the car and takeout food. Also, a couple of STAR WARS action figures and some pet supplies.

    I have ab-so-lutely NO idea what that might even be!

    You bought a deck stain that wasn't professional? -that was Olympic-sized? or maybe you bought some stain for your Olympic deck? - or perhaps it's all about an Olympic stain and the middle word is just you cursing?

    If I were really interested I could just drag your words into Google and let it all be over with; but sometimes it's the not knowing that makes the whole thing fun :)



    BTW: is it a big deck?

    The American Cinematheque is doing a month long screening series of all the James Bond movies. I just got tickets to the Casino Royale/Quantum of Solace screening on June 24th because Martin Campbell, who directed Casino Royale (and GoldenEye) will be there. Not bad for $13.00!

    I spent $1300.00 to fix my car this week. Yay for paying off your visa just in time to negate said payment! :lol:

    An iPod-compatible car stereo. This thing is wicked cool. You actually put the iPod inside the stereo itself! (Doesn't even play CDs, which is fine since I don't have any. :p )

    Woah; big bill. What happened? :(

    Looking back, I've been pretty frugal for the past month or so. I bought a pair of glasses and got new lenses in my old pair, and also collected some clothes after getting some alterations done. Apart from that, and the usual expenses of life, I can't think of anything major.

    I did manage to snag a potentally very nice porfolio/document case at a great price off eBay thanks to a tip-off from a friend (the seller didn't realise what they had) but it hasn't arrived yet so I'm not counting my chickens on that one just yet.

    A bag of chips and a jar of salsa. Sadly, that's the sum total of my evening plans right there.

    A straw trilby hat, a Father's Day present; two CD cases capable of carrying 300 DVDs each (I'm trying to get a handle on my collection); a hand-painted postcard depicting my hometown's main street in the 1910s; The Essential Glenn Miller collection; and two books, Seneca's Dialogues and Essays and Gary Taubes' Why We Get Fat.

    Breakfast at IHOP, two tickets to MiB 3 and 45 bucks worth of groceries.

    My mom was visiting the past few days and kept trying to buy me stuff, and I kept resisting. She gave me some money before she left and when I tried to decline, she said I could always spend it on some summer dresses. I promptly went out and bought a LOTR Lego set instead. :p
