Today has been a good day.
I finally got my breakfast out. I ate too much, but I got my damned wheat cakes at last.
Then shopping. A new VCR was got. I also broke down and bouhgt myself an ipod. Not the 60 GB photo ipod I'd been looking at, but a "previously opened" 40 GB ipod, which does everything I wanted, and leaves some money to seed the tattoo fund. It also gives me time to finish my research for the tattoo I want. Depending on time, money and health, I'll likely get the ink late summer, or somewhere close to my birthday. If you happen to know of any good sources for norse art featuring ravens, let me know.
I also picked up enough booze for a partial rejuvenation of the bar, including 5 bottles of wine that I'm reserving for the wine party, when ever that happens.
