I've lost the SO to Final Fantasy whichever-the-latest-release-is. Yes, it's very pretty. Yes it's possibly the most awesome Final Fantasy game EVAH! But you know what? It's just a game and a very linear one at that.
We've had someone come out to our home to demonstrate a cookware set. I've never had a personal salesperson come over before and was curious about the experience. Now I'm not, but I'm impressed. Still didn't buy anything though - not at almost $4000 a pop.
Having the salespeople do the demo and ask me questions, which I could very honestly and easily say 'no' (eg. can you see yourself cooking like this everyday?) - made me realise that traditional Western cookware sets is not something we need at the moment. I don't need 5 pots and a skillet. I need 2 pots, 1 pan and 1 wok - cuz I don't steam vegetables with every meal. How dull.
Australia Junior Masterchef! OMG! That is all.
I'm finding it easier and easier to say 'no' to couchsurfers who don't put any effort into asking for a place to crash. Especially if you address us as 'dude'. Duuuuuuuuuude.
I've finally pulled my papercraft tub from the garage to make Christmas cards. I had almost forgotten how much fun making handmade greeting cards can be. Paper, punches, inks, card, ribbon... it's all happening!
