On Did We Buy Any Cool Stuff This Weekend?

I can't deal with crowds, buuuuuut that does not preclude me from online shopping. I've been waffling on buying myself an XBOX 360, and last week amazon offered the 250 GB version (plus two games) for only $10 more than the 4 GB version I'd been eyeing, so. Merry Christmas to me!

In re: the alt-text, I believe the answer is that Howie is, as he has always been, the hot one.

On Royal Childhood: "Like Being a Tiny Lieutenant in a Very Well-Heeled Navy"

@A. Louise My not-at-all shameful confession of the day: today, at 31 years old, I can still rattle off the library card number I had when I was 12, that's how many books I put on hold.

... 200102219726.

On And I Will Call Her Candy Crush

Sooooo, everyone knows about the trick of temporarily setting the time/date forward on your iPod so you don't have to wait for more lives, yes? :D (Fuck you, game, I am not playing a single mystery puzzle a day for the next three days, and I am not shelling out the cash, either.)

On What Is Your Personal Garbage Music?

@Moonshine Mona Lisa I have started enjoying "Moves Like Jagger" much more since a friend's kid misheard the lyrics as "You've got to move your dragon, move your dragon, moooo-ooo-ooove your dragon."
