I went unshopping* today, then went to one of those cheapie chain bookstores because it was going out of business. I got: (for my library) Firebirds, Instead of Three Wishes, Conrad's Fate, and Cart and Cwidder.
All for $10.25!
ART and I had a great time shopping yesterday. She showed me this little shop that sells beautiful crafts by artisans from third world countries. I bought a beaded necklace. Actually, I tried it on and broke it. But I really liked it, so I bought it and brought it home and fixed it.
I love my parents dearly, but I don't think there is anyone who knows less about computers. Whenever they have a problem, they call me. Of course I don't mind helping, but my dad knows so little that is is PAINFUL to walk him through the steps. I had to get him to start the computer in safe mode, then do a system restore. It took an hour and a half. Plus, my phone died at one point, then he cut me off once. *headdesk of frustration*
All in all, it's been a good weekend, despite how it started.
Also bought Firefly from ebay this week. I had tried to rent it, but Blockbuster doesn't have it anymore. Circuit City wanted $35 for it, so I was feeling pretty smug when I got it for $21. Until it arrived today, with the Sam's Club price sticker of $18 still on it.
*that's when you return more than you buy.
