    I think $9.99 is a fair price to spend to make my mother laugh, agreed? You see, she, my sisters, and I are all on the same Kindle account so that we can share all our books across Kindles. I heard tell of a book that I thought might be interesting, it's a history that Stephen Fry mentioned on an episode of QI, and I really enjoy Stephen Fry as an author so I thought it'd be worth a try to read something he spoke highly of. Still, I wasn't hugely compelled to read it until I thought of what my mother's reaction woud be seeing it on our kindle account. It's called Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition.

    So that's my two latest purchases: a book for me, and a laugh for my mom and sisters!

    Weekly shopping which this week included a new toaster since the old one couldn't do much more than brown one little spot at the centre of the bread.

    I'm always on the lookout for something I've never tried. So this evening, I purchased this:

    Normally, I wouldn't because that kind of cheese is usually $7 or more! This time, however, there was one package sitting on top of the stack that was marked down (it was due to expire in a week), and so I got it for $2. :D

    Also, it's so delicious!

    I got it at Think Geek- it was cheaper than amazon.

    I wanted the Tardis lights to go with it, but they're out of stock everywhere I've looked. :( Won't get here in time for Christmas.

    I don't understand why it's so cheap at Think Geek. It's twice the price elsewhere. They must have gotten a huge dealer discount.
