I just pre-ordered Blood & Chrome from Amazon today and S2 of TNG Blu-Ray last week.
Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture and a SWTOR game time card.

crazy-ass sister-in-law's son's Xmas gift

and potentially ex-friend's teenage daughter's Xmas gift.
FUCK. Just making out that list makes me tired.
I think $9.99 is a fair price to spend to make my mother laugh, agreed? You see, she, my sisters, and I are all on the same Kindle account so that we can share all our books across Kindles. I heard tell of a book that I thought might be interesting, it's a history that Stephen Fry mentioned on an episode of QI, and I really enjoy Stephen Fry as an author so I thought it'd be worth a try to read something he spoke highly of. Still, I wasn't hugely compelled to read it until I thought of what my mother's reaction woud be seeing it on our kindle account. It's called Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition.
So that's my two latest purchases: a book for me, and a laugh for my mom and sisters!
Weekly shopping which this week included a new toaster since the old one couldn't do much more than brown one little spot at the centre of the bread.
Let's see, I bought:
- a climbing movement class at Sportrock
- a climbing helmet
- new locking carabiner
- 4 ft dyneema
- six non-locking biners
- a hair dryer
- ascorbic acid
I'm always on the lookout for something I've never tried. So this evening, I purchased this:
Normally, I wouldn't because that kind of cheese is usually $7 or more! This time, however, there was one package sitting on top of the stack that was marked down (it was due to expire in a week), and so I got it for $2.
Also, it's so delicious!
Cat box liners
shirt boxes for Christmas presents
12 pack of Diet Dr. Pepper
Some more groceries and other things for this weekend just to stock up.
Subway sandwich and chips
Picked up a fancy wallet from Amazon; it'll be my oldest sister's Xmas gift.
Snacks and diet soda.
A new briefcase/ computer bag. It's got room for everything I need while traveling and it's a good 50% lighter than my previous bag. I'm half hoping my suitcase wears out so that I can replace it with a new Tumi roll aboard bag.
A little takeout breakfast this morning.
Just ordered this:
I got it at Think Geek- it was cheaper than amazon.
I wanted the Tardis lights to go with it, but they're out of stock everywhere I've looked. Won't get here in time for Christmas.
That's on my Christmas wish-list right now.
I don't understand why it's so cheap at Think Geek. It's twice the price elsewhere. They must have gotten a huge dealer discount.
Yeah, it's like 20 bucks at BBCAmerica.
2012 World Series Film blu-ray
