Someone is always taking my brooms. I bought a new one today. For about the 4th time this year. Who steals brooms?

Man, I'm so sick of stealing brooms. I'm going to have to abort my attempt at creating the Superbroom™ 2000, simply because I have repeated the word 'broom' so many times, it has ceased making all sense.

Broom, broom, broom, broom, broom. See?

I got new (good) shoes, which were expensive but worth it considering the insane amount of walking I do.

I also got a new pair of ... organic jeans. Not sure why they're organic, but whatever.

I bought a cute green dress for the purpose of summer frolicing/drinking tea in quaint cafe's meant for old ladies. Also, £20 worth of natural hair goodies from anitagrant.com.

'Mario Kart Wii' for the Nintendo Wii and 'Orcs & Elves' for Nintendo DS. Both are awesome fun.

According to my bank account the last thing I purchased was lunch at a Mobil gas station.
But because that probably doesn't count, the last thing other than essential goods I bought was Megaman ZX Advent for the Nintendo DS.
It's not bad, but not great either.

Not so much a latest purchase as a latest acquisition, but I just got possibly the most thoughtful birthday present ever from my flatmate/friend...it's a first edition of Graham Greene's The End of the Affair (my very favourite book)...I'm beyond touched.

I just picked up Mario Kart as well. That game is awesome. Bikes are creating some of the most fun things I have ever done in Mario Kart.

However, my last purchase was a couple of CDs: Rush - Grace Under Pressure, and Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.

And both of them have my meatspace name instead of Torvaun.

Two melons, a cucumber and a bag of grapes. I made so many bad jokes with them.

If it still counts, a movie ticket for Iron Man.

If it doesn't count, and we're excluding food and gasoline, then probably Call of Duty 4 back in February.

No, I don't buy much.

Yeah. It'll make for an excellent filter. People who look at that and think "what an arrogant jack ass" will think that about me soon enough anyways.

5 dollar hot n' ready large cheese pizza from Little Ceaser's, 20 ounce mountain dew from the gas station, and a pack of Marlboro Reds.

Damn good lunch. (split the pizza with a friend)

Eight ounces of baker's chocolate, a cup of sour cream, and a can of evaporated milk. For a delicious cake.
Total cost: $5.
