    Is that a Starfleet arrowhead on your helmet, it is it just a coincidentally similar logo?

    Hello Kitty always makes me smile. Right now I'm hunting down Hello Kitty ornaments that I missed.

    There's a store here in my town sells Hello Kitty stuff and they have giant stuffed kitties that you can put on a bed or chair, like almost person sized.

    Went shopping with my sister and her son who is visiting from South Australia. We went into a second hand antiques and book shop where my sister spent $120 on vintage china and I spent $24 on Jorge Luis Borges: Collected Fictions and on 2 postcards from the 1930s.

    We then went to a bakery and my sister and me had scallop and wakame pie. I only rated this pie 5/10 which is the lowest rating I have given a scallop pie so far. My nephew had a sausage roll, he is autistic and non verbal so he could tell us his opinion on the sausage roll put he didn’t seem to like it. We had apple juice and it was really nice.

    I went to another bookshop and bought the thylacine book. [​IMG]
    I then went to a discount store and bought a diamond painting. I also went an op shop (thrift store) and bought 2 blouses and a hand bag for $14.

    The latest addition to my penguin collection:

    King Penguin & Baby.png

    This is a King penguin and chick. The chick is molting, which means it's between babyhood and adult. The brown feathers will gradually be replaced by the black/white/red adult plumage.

    I bought a copy of a book "The Champagne Smile" by a local artist / poet / writer here in my hometown. Supporting locals I am.

    Huh, I am watching a tv show about searching for the Thylacine right now.
    Today I bought Christmas cards. If I don't get them in November I never seem to get them mailed because I tend to get sick this time of year.

    Today I received two games from the AEG ding and dent sale: The Captain is Dead and The Captain is Dead: Dangerous Planet. They have a Star Trek-like theme.

    I'm debating buying a Discovery tee.

    Does anyone actually wear those in public? Or a Chateau Picard Tee

    Got myself a new strap for my mandolin and a new pack of strings. Note to self: don't go to Guitar Center during Christmas season

    I've thought about it, but I guess I already have enough shirts. I like the DISCO ones from the command training program.

    Holy crap! I never thought a shower could be so great. New shower boot works perfectly.
