Yesterday I booked 2 tickets for a Nine Inch Nails show at the Astoria and booked a hotel room in Reading for the same night. I am now 100 poorer.

*pokes snoo for money*

The other day I saw a most delightful video game sale.

I was able to pick up Half Life, Tekken Tag Tournament, and Grand Theft Auto Vice City for $20. I was happy.

Teehee, yesterday I had the ebst shopping spree ever. I bought some gorgoeus Vans, a lovely pair of trousers and a nice belt. YAY smile.gif

Today was great. I picked up a bunch of awesome stuff for no money! That means it's up there on the ol' rating list as is. I picked up two new games (Onimusha 3 and Dead Or Alive 2: Hardcore), a new GCN superpad controller (so much better than the original!) Douglas Adams's The Salmon of Doubt, and some brownies. All free! Thank god for unused and unwanted Christmas gifts!

*bump* (I know, I'm necroposting. But it's relevant?)

Today I ordered a spiffy new stud for my labret from Painful Pleasures. It's a titanium one, and it's colourful! It's a blue/green and purple candy stripe with a nice medium sized purple ball. They make the Ti ones to order, so that should take a week, but I don't mind. Cost - $42 something. Rating? 10 out of 10 even though I don't have it yet.

Yesterday I purchased (via my sister) a ticket for a Tori Amos concert in London. I don't even remember when it's for! Oh well... as for a rating, I give it a 10 at the moment. But you never know, it might turn out to be rubbish.

Today's purchases: Cheddar & Onion McCoys crisps (7 out of 10: yummy, but rather unhealthy) and a small contour bottle of Coca Cola (again, 7 out of 10: refreshing, but no real good for me).

Went to Goodwill and got funny looks from the people shopping as I squealed over and purchased a pair of pinstriped gauzey harem pants and an enormous black tulle skirt (8, and 6, respectively). I also found a significantly more respectable skirt for a friend's birthday on Fri (6 out of ten because I might have to alter it).

The total? $11.49.
I love Goodwill to a frightening extent.

I demand pictures!!! They sound so cool!

My camera's on the "broken" side of the broken boundary at the moment, but rest assured they are enormous. Like MC Hammer on a budget. I had a wicked time imagining their origins (exotic dancer who got laid off? Someone's trip back to the magical land of 1986?)

Sadly though, the guards at my school found them a bit on the sheer side of sheer, so I'll have to restrict my wearing of them to non-educational functions.

Could wear something under them? Like... bright pink leggings or something equally outrageous!
elphaba2
I had black leggings under them, but, being stretched across the bum, they allowed the outline of my underoos to be rather visible if one stares. Which makes me question the motives of the security guards....

*retches*

But pink ones is a nice idea... hmm....perhaps a second trip to Goodwill is in order.

Two Excel Saga DVDs (used) and the Ghost in the Shell movie. I have been putting off buying GitS because I am a miserly twit but I figured if Mata likes it, it must be brilliant (and *cough* four dollars).

Yesterday, I bought a Shure SM58 vocal microphone. It's on the higher end of the SM series of Shure microphones (a highly trusted name brand) and is considered the industry standard. It's light and compact and delivers a clear, warm sound. My only gripe with it is that there's no on/off switch.

Rick was pissed at me when I showed him. His Shure mics are a PG48 vocal mic and a PG57 condenser mic. His mics come from the PG series, which is meant for bands who can't afford to get better equipment (well, neither can I really, but I bought it anyway). The PG48 is the lowest model in that series while the PG57 is the second lowest. He does have one over on me with his Teac TM77 dynamic mic, but it's a bit too sensitive for stage performance and is better for the studio (to me at least).

Reflex XTR, a Wacom Graphire 3 XL, two bottles of water, and a packet of mints. No, three packets.

...In the last week.
Greeneyes
Graphire is great, though slightly too big to fit next to my keyboard. Curses.

Reflex is also fantastic. Well worth the money.

The mints were minty.

Yesterday:

Brass Eye DVD
A Clockwork Orange DVD
mooooooooooopo
M-Audio Oxygen8 MIDI keyboard. How I love eBay. Possibly some other stuff I haven't won yet.

Also some train tickets for the Glasgow meet and food from Pizza Hut.

Yesterday: Destroy All Humans! for ps2.

Nice game, however, I annhialated it within twenty-four hours.

I guess the lack of length in games these days, you could call a video game "pandemic"! A-hahaha!

...I'll be quiet now.

Oh oh! I bought an Intuos3 4x5 tablet with some of my graduation money.

Quoth(The Raven)
A bottle of Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper (About a five... I like it, but it tastes just like Mr. Pibb, which is the competition's version of Dr. Pepper... can you say, 'lawsuit', boys and girls? smile.gif )

Greatest American Hero: Season 1, on DVD (One of my alltime favorite Tv shows... looking forward to watching it... 10 out of ten)

12 pack Cherry Pepsi... Yum!

Clockwork Orange: Interesting, if not rather disturbing.

I went tag-saling yesterday, and scooped up
-Shakespeare's Othello (as opposed to Pamela Anderson's Othello, which I hear is doing really well)
Haven't read it yet, but it gets a 7 for being in good condition.

-Also Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear, and A Midsummer Night's Dream (2 of which I already own copies, albeit very battered copies)
8, 5 and 9, respectively. There was an apple juice stain on the first four pages of King Lear!

-A Streetcar Named Desire by the esteemed Tennessee Williams
7. Points off for (the book's) being flimsy, but masterful literature, that.

-Eye In the Sky by Mr. Philip K. Dick
Also haven't started yet. But I expect it to be quite delicious. 7.

-The Homecoming from Mr. Harold Pinter
Edited: Very odd, but would be fascinating and extremely challenging to perform. Therefore: 8.

-A Breeders album (Last Splash, plucked from between Barbara Streisand and Jimmy Buffett. Ouch.)
9.5 for general awesomeness.

-an Everything But the Girl album I have yet to enjoy.
7.

-A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Fascinating and odd and savoury. 10.

All for the grand total of $3.75. Woo!
Fallen Element
Bought:
A very large Starbucks black coffee. With espresso. It was Fairtrade so I was happy.
Prawn Cocktail crisps.
Cigarettes.
A cats eye crystal shaped like a heart.
Dr. Pepper.
Another very large Starbucks black coffee. With espresso. This time it was Ethiopian coffee! Very tasty!

Think that was about it... Hmmm, I'm wondering why I have the amount of money I do - there should be more...

German para boots, much more comfortable than my british para boots, but I need to get new laces for them.
Glue, to stick the sole back onto my british para boots, I was going to get them resoled but it would would cost 30 (the boots where only 25)
