That's got to be a bucket list thing for me. Buying something from a infomercial.

I recently bought a new tablet/e-reader since mine was well on its way to taking a crap. It was cheap and is much faster than my old one. I also has a camera, so I can send Joey selfies like he always requests.
You know it, brother!

I bought new shoes. Cause shoes.

Also two new books. Non-Stop and the first EXPANSE book.

Oh, and a few shirts because I am the king of fashion.

After Descending Dragon, Rising Tiger: A History of Vietnam I bought The Penguin History of Modern Vietnam by Christopher Goscha. So far so good. Reading at the same time David Eddings Belgariad (book 1), so the timing isn't too great, but I saw Goscha's book and didn't want to leave the bookshop without it...

Also bought and finished the last Discworld novel The Shepherd's Crown (should make a thread on that).

A one-way international plane ticket. (Bought mostly using miles, so it cost ~$100, whooooo).

And a big tattoo. Holy *cusses like Locke Lamora*. You can clicky for a close up. I'm so happy.  :elfgirl_grin:







Mostly I'm selling/donating/foisting stuff on other people. My furniture (bed, bookshelf, desk) is going to my parents' guest room, sewing machine, tv, xbox, and some clothes to sister, hurls and plants and exercise mat to a friend (mostly as a joke), books to secondhand stores and schools, etc, etc, etc.

Harry Potter. Sister was interested in reading it, so she got dibs and read it while I was at work. Apparently it isn't that good, alas.
