New stuff for the cat - biscuits, a food mat and a scratching post.
More Star Wars figures at the toy and collectibles shop. New ones, too...that I didn't have yet! Well, at least not in this particular and unique packaging, anyways.
Peanuts, granola bars, cans of soup, matches and other stuff to refill our Hurricane supplies---just in case.
Sorry I'm a bit late replying, Kestra. Had forgotten about the thread and just checked back.
Well, there's quite a few things I like about them. First and foremost is the simplicity and practicality. But also, they're very well made without being ostentatious. Modern LCD watches have come along way in terms of functionality (some are really like mini computers on the wrist), but to increase profits companies have cut back on quality in a number of areas. You pay a premium to have an all stainless steel casing (most feature hardened resin cases these days). This particular one I got has a nice minimalist look about it, is very easy to read, and the beep tone is reasonably loud (a lot of modern Casio G-Shocks have faint beep tones in comparison, where you can't hear them unless you're in a quiet room). Plus, it's quite uncommon these days to find one like this in excellent condition. I'm not an all digital guy, as I do have some analog watches too. And while I do own a couple of Omega watches, I still enjoy LCD a lot.
Do you have any watch preferences, or wear any at all? I know a lot of people who've stopped wearing them because cellphones always have the current time.
Some weekend groceries as well as a little lunch earlier today.
A new pair of pants
A beard trimmer to replace the old one which I dropped into the toilet
How do you drop a beard trimmer in the toilet??
Anyway...after forking out for the Portal gun I also forked out money for an airfare to Adelaide...
The Adjusment Bureau on Blu-ray.
This bought it yesterday at The Real Canadian Super Store, Normally Retails for $250, was on sale for $124. now to test it out tonight
Barbeque at Azell's place!
Some more groceries for the next day or two.
Yeah, there's a story here, I'm sure. Do tell.
Filled the car up, plus got a couple of new rear side bulbs to replace ones that have been blown for way longer than I should really have left them that way... oh well, no harm, no foul.
A couple hundred dollars worth of food and other necessities, so I won't have to go shopping for a while after my surgery, and all I should have to ask a friend to pick up is some fresh fruit and veggies.
Oh, totally forgot. I bought six new Star Wars figures at my friend's shop earlier today as well.
Market-day today; got some fish and veggies.
And I was surprised to see that they actually had nylon/hook & loop-wallets in a store I went into on the off chance that they might have them -bought the last one they had.
And, since I've only ever read the first book, I also got myself a one-volume 'Complete Rama' -I wish it was bed-time so I could get started on it
Bought some veggie potstickers, cereal and diet soda.
Supermarket shop today - mainly orange juice!
Bought my parents some round placemats off of Amazon.
Renewed my AAA membership.
Stopped by the toy shop again for a few minutes late this morning. Picked up an interesting production variant of a character I didn't previously own.
