    Ouch.

    I just placed an order for more comics at Mile High Comics.

    A good buy is much better than a "goodbye". :D

    I finally gave in and upgraded from a non-smartphone to an iPhone. Weird, but fun!

    ^ So have you dumped your landline yet? That's the first thing I did after I got my iPhone.

    ½ a wheat loaf and ½ a rye loaf.

    My mum did that upgrade (From an Ericsson brick to a Samsung flatpack) this Christmas; it was her very first tap/swipe/shake operated device -and very much fun for the whole family to watch her learning how to use it :p

    [It was also fun to see how dad coped with mums old phone (poor thing always gets her hand-me-downs)]

    I bought 4 kg of Smilla fish cat hard food, plus one kilo of the same brand Sensible taste. Also, a tube of malt paste against hairballs, and a play rod kinda thing with huge feathers (the last one they wrecked, but they LOVE this kind).

    All together, 21,50 euros. Not bad. :D Smilla is cheap but good food.

    I don't doubt that, but I first read your post as you buying 'smelly' fish cat food :wtf:

    May be because I have these anti-plaque cat treats, you see, and they're fishy-smelly ;)

    I bought an audio book: Cotillion by Georgette Heyer. It's a rather predictable love story but sometimes one needs a bit of perfect fictional world to gather the strength to fight in the imperfect real one.

    Haha, well I think ALL cat food is smelly, at least all kibble. Raw food doesn't smell bad (except for lamb and rabbit mix) and wet food, well sometimes.

    I think Smilla is a weird brand name too. Though Schmusy (another one they get here) is funnier.

    Yes! This is why TNG is my favorite Trek and why I like suspense novels to have clear-cut good guys and bad guys. I don't need flawed heroes who are barely distinguishable from villains -- there are plenty of them in real life, thank you.

    A blueberry muffin.

    It was a birthday present for my mum :)

    Well, it was the 'thing' she got with the card where I invited her to go to the café, where I bought the muffin, for lunch some day of her choosing...

    Thanks TZ, it was a better gift than the other thing I got her; a cableeater™ -for the cables around dad's computer table in their living room, which really is a dad-gift -even if the cable-mess doesn't bother him :rommie:
