My last purchase was Devil May Cry 4.

I can't remember the last thing I bought that wasn't food. The last food I bought was a pearl tea. $1.19.

A sandwich, today. Before that, paid for parking.

Latest non-trivial purchase is the pre-order of Absolute Sandman volume 3.

To anyone thinking, "But, abzde, how could a simple popsicle be the best food ever?", I respond, "Shut yo' mouth, fool!" Calling a locopop a popsicle is like calling an Aston Martin a car. Sure, it's true, but it totally misses the point: total excellence.

Slightly more expensive day than I figured it would be.

After getting the aforementioned sandwich (which was not too expensive :-) ) I ordered a new USB flash disk - 4 GB, SanDisk. Cost roughly 30$.

Then, I went to a yoga class for the first time and it was awesome! And cost me around 110$ to buy a free pass for one month (I'll go twice a week).

Money well spent! I'm currently working my way though the baroque cycle.


Don't remember the exact order, but my last two purchases were an Aeroflot t-shirt (from russia! hasn't got here yet) and a $45 extension cord, not long after a very snazzy Bosch angle grinder. I think I may have a bit of a problem when it comes to spending money on nice tools.

A tank of gas for my car, which I then proceeded to crash.

Before that, and less wastefully, a DVD of 7 Faces of Dr. Lao.

I bought my little sister a birthday present: the complete "Legend of Zelda" animated TV show.

Speaking of sneaking things into shopping carts...about six years back, when my group was graduating from basic training, a few friends of mine slipped some condoms and vaseline into some baby-faced recruit's shopping bag. He didn't notice until the lady at the cash register started taking everything out...

Today, I bought a t-shirt from Nintendo World that says "What happens in the mushroom kingdom stays in the mushroom kingdom". I also bought some 餅、カルピス、and ハイチュウ (which I just finished the last of) from the Sunrise Mart. And at a little china shop I picked up some kitty chopstick rests and origami papers.

Hehe, I need to try non food items, but I find it funnier if the food gets through as they may have to eat it.

In fairness the guy ate the macaroni, it looked like cheese water womit concoction, so I gave him the whole 16p it cost.

Nah...she just really loves LOZ, and she's mature enough to appreciate the inevitable MST'ing.

I just got back from a convention over the weekend, so my list of purchases is long:

One Colossal Red Dragon Miniature
Two Order of the Stick Books. ("On the Origin of PCs" and "Dungeon-Crawlin' Fools")
One Bioshock Big Daddy/Little Sister pin
One Pin depicting a companion cube burning and the text "love is over"
One print depicting Samus in Morph Ball form rubbing up against a companion cube
One copy of House of Secrets
One copy of Spider Forest
One copy of Ogenki Clinic signed by Steve Bennet*
Two boxes of mango pocky
One box of Meltykiss brand raspberry chocolates
Two bottles of Delirium Nocturnum
One bottle of Jamaican Cream Liqueur.

And then I came home and bought season three of House, and collection 0 of transmetropolitan.

*Not technically a purchase. He gave it to me because I bought a different, non-porn comic from him, and then, when it turned out to be the last copy, gave that comic away to someone who wanted it more. He felt I should still get something. I'm definitely not complaining.

My recent purchase was a V3xx Razr. Godly fast response. So much better then the previous V3. That thing was very slow, bad txting response, and broken all around. When it broke my dad refused to pay for a new phone despite the fact its a hand me down from himself (A 4 year old phone). So, I managed to scrounge up 150$ and buy this one. Trying to re mod it. So far instead of the AT&T logo on the back screen it's this:
