A ticket to "Silver Linings Playbook" plus popcorn and soda.
A pin vice.
Gonna fix Ro Laren's arm.
Sherlock series 1 and 2, Total Recall 2012 on DVD.
Some thin-crust spinach and black olive pizza.
Airline tickets for my trip to New York this September.
North Face parka, good to 20 below.
Dinner and grocery items for the next couple of days.
My new shirt arrived today. It's a lightweight cotton with just a little sparkle around the neck. It will be perfect when winter is over--which, around here, will happen in a few weeks.
The bonus is that it was not only on 50% off, but with free shipping, too.
What did you think of it?
I enjoyed it. It's a little dark in some parts and surprisingly silly and lighthearted in others. I thought Bradley Cooper did a very good job portraying a bi-polar personality, delusions and psycho-babble and all. My sister has been diagnosed, at various times, as bi-polar and narcissistic, and I totally recognized the behaviors. But it also deals with the main character's Dad, an OCD sports fanatic. So there's humor, sports fans, dancing, grieving, mental illness, family issues, love, infidelity, and how to move on from loss.
But I am very partial to Bradley Cooper, so I might be a bit biased.
The Hobbit soundtrack on itunes.
Some more groceries along with a brand new Star Wars vehicle with action figures I didn't have.
Shaving cream and razor blades.
My electric shaver quit. I haven't shaved since September.
^ Oh my! That's an expense. The airline tickets sound more exciting.
My latest purchase (other than some medical supplies) is a cream-colored alpaca cape. Very soft and cozy.
They were, although NOT freezing to death is also very exciting
I got lucky, and by that I mean VERY lucky, that they came to put in the new furnace the same night my old one died. Plus I saved a shitload because of my service agreement and prior relationship with the company.
Yes, not freezing to death is excellent. Glad you got a good buy.
More plane tickets:
July 21 - Omaha to Seattle; July 23 - Seattle to Phoenix
July 31 - San Diego to Pittsburgh; August 3 - Pittsburgh to Omaha
(From Phoenix to SD I will be on an organized tour.)
Also booked hotel rooms for all of those trips. I'm gonna have a busy summer!
Two Guillermo del Toro directed Blu-rays: Pan's Labyrinth and Cronos.
Yeah, I thought it was different but pretty good. I just don't know anyone else who saw it (other than the friend I had seen it with) so I was interested in what you thought. And Bradley Cooper is growing on me. I liked the lead actress in it too.
