    A few groceries. Stamps (yes, I still use snail mail occasionally). And I signed the contract for my kitchen remodeling!

    An office desk chair. Already it creaks slightly after a day or two. :mad:

    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Mum & dad went to IKEA today, asked if I wanted to join them -which I did!

    I bought one of those things (don't know the anglo name for them: please help me with that!) that you install above where you do your cooking; they, then, suck up all the vapours! cost me 999 Kr (~183 US$).

    And, while I was there, I also got a big ol' mat to put in front of my door, a nice rug (probably for the cat to piss on :sigh: ), a couple of lamps (two of the old-fashioned 'bulp'-type that are dim-able but have a better light-to-heat ratio than the usual incandescent ones) and one 3W LED thing to light up my desk (looks a bit like the 'heat ray'-device on top of the UFO's in the 1953 War of the Worlds film! :rommie: plus a forty-LED-balls-of-light-chain for outdoors use.
    (and a few other things -while I was there...)

    SwissGear Ibex backpack. Needed to carry a bunch of things today, and it really lightened the load. Not the sexiest, but certainly the best backpack I've ever owned:

    In Australia they are called a rangehood. I am not sure what they are called in the rest of the English speaking world.

    They're for my cross stitch pieces- the top will have teacups, the bottom a classic car (I don't think Dad would want an overly cute cat).

    I gave in and pre-ordered the Six Million Dollar Man complete series DVD set from TimeLife today. Early Christmas present for myself.

    Now I just have to occupy my time during the annoying wait for the mailman to bring it.

    I bought a 27" iMac with core i7 processor, 4 gigs of ram, and a 1tb hard drive on monday. Sadly, my schedule this week has had extremely limited free time, so I've only been able play with it for a few mins. But, next week looks real good as far as free time for me to have some fun with it.

    Got two fancy diaries for my nieces and a stuffed animal for their baby sister. They'll be here after Christmas, so I can give it to them then.

    It isn't really my purchase but I just ordered the first two seasons of Hogan's Heroes for my son. They were on special and postage free - total combined price $AUD31.98.
