    Ordered this shirt for my dad for Father's Day. He loves Curious George...

    And while I was at it, I went ahead and bought the "all eleven Doctors bursting out of the Tardis at the same time" shirt. :D

    I bought a All-in-One printer today. It was advertised on Dick Smiths website at $44. I did a check online to see if it was available at the nearest store and it was. Caught the bus to the shopping centre, selected the $44 printer and put it on the counter where I was told it couldn't be sold without the extended warranty which made the price $59.95 (same price as at the Big W store in the same centre). I complained loudly that the website was misleading, and that I had no need of an extended warranty. The guy ended up agreeing to sell me the extra black and whilt ink cartridge I wanted to buy for $14 instead of its usual cost of $22.95.

    Still all up it cost me about $7 more that planned.

    My sister got me a Target gift card for my birthday, and normally I'd waste it on some electronics item or PC game I don't really need. Then that silly pop-up from Philips-Norelco got me thinking, "Hey, what if I got a brand new electric shaver?"

    And so I did! Manscaping has been on my mind these past few months ... :D

    Girls, Guns, and G-Strings, The Andy Sidaris Collection. A twelve film boxed set I got on Amazon for about $5 that collects all "films" of Andy Sidaris, each more embarrassingly bad than the last. And yet I laugh all the way through it. Is it possible to call anything in these films "gratuitous" since all they were about to begin with is nudity and explosions?

    The Bionic Woman season 2 DVD set. Watching this is already making me anxious for season 3 to come out. I hope the wait isn't long.

    The sequined gloves and the skirt will be tricky to pair with the slippers. ;)

    Congratulations!

    I like reading your purchase lists; they always have something deliciously decadent about them somewhere. :techman:




    Picked up a stone-coloured linen suit from the tailors yesterday. It needed a few little alterations but is now about as good as it will get from MTM rather than bespoke. Now I just need some warmer sunny days to wear it on! Hopefully won't be long.

    Couldn't resist picking up a pretty funky pair of red/tan houndstooth socks while there too.

    I saw a Kelley's Heroes DvD in the bargain bin at King Soopers for 8 bucks so I snatched that one up.

    I was fortunate enough to see the restored version in the cinema last year. One of my personal cinematic highlights. :bolian:

    I just re-watched it myself after many years, and found it even more interesting than the first time around. What a visionary Fritz Lang was. :cool:

    I bought myself a pair of very young, very wild Diesel jeans, I couldn't find a picture of them that I liked on teh interwebz, so here I go modelling them:

    My mother would probably have a heart attack if she ever saw them! :lol:

Watts, How Markets Fail: The Logic of Economic Calamities by John Cassidy, The Dead republic by Roddy Doyle, and Legion by William Peter Blatty.

    A light jacket.

    A couple of umbrellas (one for home, one for office).

    A bottle of brandy for the office--I mean... home. :shifty:

    And I renewed my driver's licence and health card.

    Good fit on those. :techman:

    The fading and distressing is not to my taste, but goes well with the shoes you've paired with them IMO (suede or nubuck derbies, it seems?), without an excessive amount of stacking. Nice.

    Any particular make or intriguing details? I like nice brollies, so I'm curious. I can picture you getting interesting ones, from unusual materials or with carvings.
