    Spent $14.50 on books at Goodwill and traded them at my local used bookstore for $49.50 in credit. :D Then bought a slew of mostly Trek used books - "slew" being around 25 or so. Good day. :techman:

    I made dinner and hubby made dessert for my parents, sister and nephew. It was my dad's 80th birthday. It was a great dinner, too.

    lifting wrist straps and a valeo lift belt - the belt is a bit large because the site didn't have a sizing chart.

    The movies are still spilt in 2 parts, each on their own BD disc...
    Great quality and the extra material is seamlessly added...
    I watched the 1st one last night and i really couldn't tell most of the added stuff from what hadn't been there when i saw it in the theather...
    The appendices are still on DVDs though...

    I have the regular DVD extended edition (separate collector's editions) at home, been thinking about picking that up... I've actually had it on my Amazon auto notify now for like 2-3 years.

    In Sovjet Russia, the camera buys you!

    I bought a Zenit TTL a few hours ago. Roughly 20€ and its basically brand new. Figured, I'd give analog photography a go as well.

    Not exactly off-topic, more anti-topic, but I was just looking through my credit card transactions for the last month, and realised I hadn't bought anything apart from petrol, parking, and food (OK some of the latter includes cafe, restaurant and bar bills, but still). I don't think that's ever happened to me before!

    I wasn't even trying to cut back. Very weird. Maybe I've finally ascended to a higher spiritual plane? :D

    I'm like that guy in TNG's Transfigurations. I know something is happening to me, but I don't know what or why... :lol:

    It's scary... there isn't even a travel agent to buy a ticket out of here from... :D

    Hooray! I'm typing on one that I got very recently as a birthday present. I've wanted an iPad ever since they came out, but it seemed so extravagant that I didn't want to spend the money.

    My parents bought this for me though, and it pretty much hasn't left my side!

    ^ Darn, just when I was starting to really enjoy this planet.
    It's always Holdfast's fault. :p

    I got me a new phone for my Italian SIM, and am very happy with it. I decided to go for an Android (2.3 Gingerbread) this time. It's slightly more complicated than I expected in certain areas, but thoroughly enjoyable and quick as lightning. Add a 5Mp camera, a 512Mb Ram, SD memory upgradable to 32Gb, and b/g/n WiFi.
    All in one of the most compact phones I've seen in a good while! It's positively tiny compared to pretty much anything else!

    It's the HTC Wildfire S:

    You'll be reassured to know that it's devilish hard to find a septet of trumpeters, so the 7th is staying locked for a good while yet. :p

    The SuicideGirls coffee table book (got it dirt cheap, too!). I have to say, it's a bit bigger than what I thought it was going to be, but I am very pleased with it. 396 pages of full color photographs, no ads, no articles, no filler. Just beauty from edge to edge. Now I just need a coffee table to put under it. ;)
