    I can't believe people actually get paid to make such crappy movie case art. What the frak did he or she do to Angelina Jolie's face?!?!?!

    OK, I'm revising this opinion. I hope the logo stays around; three pretty girls complimented me on the wellies today with a variant on the theme of "ooh, Hunters, they're so cool". I never realised they had such devoted fanbase, but I'm shallow enough to definitely appreciate it! :lol:

    Congratulations. I won't stick the fork in for fear you'll pop, but you should take the chance to down a relaxing sherry or two instead, in the lull before the Christmas Day storm. ;)

    ^ I try to limit my predictability in any given post to just one line-item... talking shoes filled the quota there. ;)

    Shoes vs forking. It was a tough call.

    You should know never to give me set-up lines like this. The potential for punning is fearsome... :lol:

    I know the feeling, I had to buy my very first pair since I was a child this year. I too went for Hunter, mine are navy blue though, and as luck has it I ended up spending £28 at John Lewis for them, since I fit perfectly snuggly (with my thickest socks on) in the children's largest size. :D

    I bought two Lady GaGa shirts and all three of the Destiny books. I had to force myself to stop reading the first one; it's ssooo good!! Can't wait for the rest.

    A pair of jeans from Coldwater Creek. They're having a 50% sale. That means I can ALMOST afford them! :lol:

    I bought this for myself yesterday. As I collect glass ornaments and also spiders this was a very satifying find for me.

    I wish the little fly came up better in the photo as it is rather cute.

    Yesterday the Missus got me this lovely Hollister jacket, because I'm in a lumberjack mood this Christmas. :D

    Wow, that's great; under half price, AND a cooler colour. :cool:

    I like the plaid jacket too; lucky you!

    No shopping today; did the last of the Christmas food shopping yesterday.

    A small rollerball of Kate Spade's Twirl perfume. I love it, but didn't want to spend a lot on a big bottle. This will be enough for the days I don't wear my favorite, Vera Wang Princess. :D
