    After years of putting it off, I finally bought a new turntable, a Linn Klimax LP12. It was the most money I've ever spent on audio gear, but I used a quarterly bonus check from work to pay for it, so my monthly finances weren't impacted.

    An amazing American Girl costume! They just released Elphaba and Glinda costumes from Wicked for one of their dolls (character is a theater kid who loves Wicked). Parents are buying that doll for me soon as well.

    New glasses. I didn't need them but my insurance renewed so why not. I still paid out of pocket because I went for the deluxe package and Ray-Ban frames as I wanted them for transition in-out (I already have dedicated sunglasses and reg glasses). This way I now have a back up pair in case one breaks, and I don't have to keep swapping glasses in and out of stores or on walks.

    Ticket for the museum whose entrance looks like a crashed Borg cube.

    That is to say, the Royal Ontario Museum. :borg:

    How was it? I'm going to Toronto in two weeks and trying to decide between it and the Aquarium. I have a discount so the ROM is cheaper, plus Dinosaurs, but the aquarium is supposed to be great.

    I like the ROM very much (I’m still there!) but I think I prefer Ripley’s Aquarium.

    I like Casa Loma the best of all, though. ;)

    Isn't Casa Loma just a big castle like house that tv shows and movies film in?

    ^ Casa Loma is a lot more than just a film set. It’s a museum unto itself.

    Huh. Ok.

    Still, I think the ROM or aquarium. Both are cheaper than Loma, especially with the ROM discount I have.

    Paper products for the house. My son buys most of the food and I buy the other necessary household items.

    Peanut butter. The large jar, now I have to stir it, I hate that.

    Ready-made dinner from HEB-- Chicken Parmigiana -- so I'll have something to eat tonight, and I don't have to cook.
