    You know what BB&B doesn't carry?

    Coffee stirrers.

    Yes, it's going to be casual. Black jeans. Maybe a black skirt. Black or pale gray top.

    BTW, I think menswear is easier, too!

    Tell that to my boss! He wants wooden coffee stirrers, not spoons!

    And today the laptop completely gave up the ghost. Completely impossible to start it in anything other than safe mode, and even that seems a crapshoot.

    Still, in a way I'm lucky. I've ordered the new one already, and I have a flash drive with everything important from it backed-up already. And I found my even older laptop from about 10 years ago in a cupboard, so I'm still able to get online, though it's really, really slooooow...:D

    Weird coincidence is that just a few weeks ago I was thinking of junking this 10yr old one. Glad I kept it now; definitely got me out of a hole!

    A few yardwaste bags, and a bottle of Roundup weedkiller.

    This is what passes for "getting ready for the weekend" in my life. :lol:

    @Holdfast: I've had two Sony Vaio's, the first from 2003-2008 that worked one day and wouldn't another before finally dropping apart around three years ago now. This one from 2009 until now, just got it back from town after repairs, the harddrive failed completely, and the disc drive is still iffy.

    Basically avoid Sony and or Vaio's unless you absolutely have no choice.

    We've had very different experiences it seems. My first I kept 4+ years and this one 6+ years, each with no problems until very close to the end of their respective lives. So I'm very happy about going back for a third. I had a Dell in between (that's what I'm temporarily using now again, but the disc drive broke on it after just over a year or two). IDK, I have a lot of different Sony stuff and haven't really found any problems with any of it and it all seems to last nigh-on forever.

    Today I bought new jeans, and just ordered Christmas With Southern Living 2011 from amazon. Can't wait to get it, every year they have great new ideas and recipes!

    Some people seem to put their stuff through harder usage than others. I've a friend who's been through 4 laptops while I've had the one. Also, luck plays its part, some poor folks seem to be consistently unlucky.

    Went out for some mid-season boots to traipse through parks with the kids, but the only pair I liked was sold out in my size, came home with a Nando's takeaway dinner instead.

    Volume II of the Loeb Classical Edition of Appian's Roman History.

    I need it for a paper I'm writing and unfortunately inter-library loan failed this time around.

    I read a little around alchemy this time last year, and a bit of Aquinas later on, so figured I may as well fill in the gaps. These concepts make for some interesting psychological motifs, which is what interests me about them. The first book sounds like a good introductory overview and the second should have lots of interesting artwork.

    Found the shoes I wanted after all - yay! Needed something with a firm grip that would stay warm and dry through autumn/winter and won't suffer too badly if they get wet or muddy.

    Been having a lot of ginger drinks lately - grating it by hand then cooking it in water to get all the flavour out - found myself grating my fingers all too often, very messy labour-heavy job, finally decided it was about time we went for a juicer. Read some reviews and settled on this:

    [​IMG]

    Juiced apple, carrot, ginger and cucumber earlier this evening, and it's opened up a world of fruits and vegetables I normally couldn't consider with just a blender, I'm hooked already! And my fingers are thanking me. I guess I'm now officially a health nut. :lol:
