    My new shirt arrived today. It's a lightweight cotton with just a little sparkle around the neck. It will be perfect when winter is over--which, around here, will happen in a few weeks.

    The bonus is that it was not only on 50% off, but with free shipping, too.

    I enjoyed it. It's a little dark in some parts and surprisingly silly and lighthearted in others. I thought Bradley Cooper did a very good job portraying a bi-polar personality, delusions and psycho-babble and all. My sister has been diagnosed, at various times, as bi-polar and narcissistic, and I totally recognized the behaviors. But it also deals with the main character's Dad, an OCD sports fanatic. So there's humor, sports fans, dancing, grieving, mental illness, family issues, love, infidelity, and how to move on from loss.

    But I am very partial to Bradley Cooper, so I might be a bit biased.

    ^ Oh my! That's an expense. :( The airline tickets sound more exciting.

    My latest purchase (other than some medical supplies) is a cream-colored alpaca cape. Very soft and cozy.

    They were, although NOT freezing to death is also very exciting :D

    I got lucky, and by that I mean VERY lucky, that they came to put in the new furnace the same night my old one died. Plus I saved a shitload because of my service agreement and prior relationship with the company.

    Yeah, I thought it was different but pretty good. I just don't know anyone else who saw it (other than the friend I had seen it with) so I was interested in what you thought. And Bradley Cooper is growing on me. I liked the lead actress in it too.
