    :lol:^ Now THERE'S A THOUGHT!!

    I picked myself up a little something from Coldwater Creek; they're having a 40% off & free shipping sale. I decided to be bold and NOT buy something blue, teal or even turquoise. I picked up this:

    I bought two horses for two little girls, as souvenirs from the Tower of London.

    I would LOVE to have the blue one. That's cool!

    I can change the colour from red to blue and everything in-between...

    Here is a overview of it:

    ^Very cool! *So jealous* I would never be able to convince hubby to get that. But I love the lights, and the fact that the keyboard is quiet. My keyboard and mouse and pretty cheap, so they're kind of loud; it sounds like I'm using a typewriter. :lol:

    Just ordered some jeans though Amazon. My mailman and UPS man are probably cussing me, I've been ordering so much lately. :)

    I got some recorders, flute, and some other musical instruments with instruction books so I can teach myself. The recorder is coming along nicely. I also got a couple of cuddle cups for my guinea pigs to enjoy. :D

    I picked up some ties on sale last week. Combining the sale with a preferred customer bonus offer, I ended up getting 6 for the price of 2. Merry Christmas to me.

    Because I know that Holdfast will ask:

    I wound up buying Community: Season 2 the other day because I'd ordered it online as a gift for a friend but was worried it wouldn't arrive in time for our group's annual holiday party on Saturday... and it arrived in the mail about five minutes after I got home from buying copy #2. Oh well.

    I picked up a couple boxes of See's Candies for my mother - she loves them - as well as a few last minute gifts for my sister and her fiance. Definitely looking forward to seeing the family for the holiday!

    Sorry about the crappiness of the photo, I used my cheapo camera rather than go into the other room and retrieve my good camera.

    The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. A Christmas present to myself. Three large, hardbook volumes in a cover. 1456 pages. The set weights 10.2 kg. I bought it on Amazon UK for 43 pounds which is around $78 AUS (price has now risen to now 50 pounds). I got free postage. The set is listed on the US Amazon for $91.77 so I think I got them for a very good price.

    Now I am going to wrap them and put them under the tree and act surprised when I open them on Xmas morning :) I plan to spend some of Christmas Day reading them.

    Your mom has good taste; I love See's, too! :drool:
    I picked up a box of their rectangle lollies under the pretense that I'm going to share them with the nieces and nephew.

    :D

    1 - Nice in itself, though I have a somewhat similar one and find it surprisingly had to work into an outfit without it overwhelming everything else. Bright red ties are quite tricky items; I find it's often easier to wear them to smart dinners or outside meetings, rather than in day to day work.

    2 - I like. Good to use in more casual/odd-jacket combos too. Burnt orange is such a warm colour.

    3 - Nice for spring/summer. Would be great with a linen jacket or suit I think.

    4 - Not personally keen on, but probably versatile with both a wide range of greys and blue.

    5 - Will be nice against either navy or charcoal grey suits.

    6 - Assuming the background is a kind of mahogany/maroony sort of colour, I think this is my favourite. Conservative, versatile and professional. I can see it working with some more casual variants too.

    The postman brought me my new wifi printer yesterday. Now I can print from my iPad if I want to.
