One of the last things I bought was 4 of those Williams Mug shaving soap pucks you recommended. $1.88/puck.
And from the two times I've used it, it seems way easier to make a good lather than the $4 (?) Wilkinson stuff I had to get last time.

Folding utility knife. Because apparently I threw my old one away... :mad: :fail:

You'll find it as soon as you no longer need one. Alternatively, you'll find the first one when you lose the second and buy a third.

This is very true. I have multiple copies of DVDs and books that I had lost for several years (3 to 5) that I found within days of buying new copies.
It's a thing.  It's like a plan, but with more greatness.

Fighting? There's no fighting in Plan C. Plan C is run away faster!

The past with dumb people who wanted to kill us for dumb reasons is behind us.  Ahead is a new place with new people who'll want to kill us for totally different reasons!

I'm pretty sure I lost it in the pasture so finding it is going to be next to impossible.

I got another $50 gift card for Amazon from my schools English Department so I got:

The House of Tomorrow by Peter Bognanni
A Detroit Anthology by Anna Clark (it's actually a text book I need)
Fan Art by Sarah Tregay
and one of those floating bookshelves.

Last thing I "bought" was an emissions test. THE FeO2 CHARIOT PASSED.

Two of the adultiest things possible: a Ring Pop (plus one for my niece) and a 3 qt. bottle of Kool-Aid (which I will drink out of the Cinderella cup I got at her birthday party earlier this this month)

Mozzarella/tomato panini and tomato soup at Panera.  Yum!

A chocolate malted.  :yummy:

Yes, yes it was.  It's still a little tender.

A 1/8th scale box car and caboose.  :ehwhat:  Lucked into the deal of the century last week.

Pictures, please? :)



Almost a year later, I finally got the boxcar put together (click on it for bigger pic).  There's somewhere around 1,400 rivets in that thing and I hammered each and every one of them in. :saywhat:  Still need some details like grab irons, steps, and roof walk, wheels and couplers, and of course painting.  I plan on painting it Electric Mucous with a red stripe around it, put the PE logo and slogan on it, and "When empty return to New New York, Earth".  :crylol:  Anyone got a high res scan of the PE Logo suitable for blowing up to about 12 inches (300mm) square?

I could make one for you, if you so wished.

I bought a EX-01 Bluetooth Headset for my Playstation 3

Now instead of the voice of various annoying 12 years old blaring from my tv, they blare directly into my right ear.

Two rolls, one seedy and one with cheese, at the bakery on the town square here in Brumunddal; then some lefse and flatbread to take back to the house.

Doesn't get much more Norwegian than that.
