Two mail-goodies and now the complete “The Prisoner” TV series…Kevin got it for me at Costco last night, knowing full well that I’d be happy to pay the $80 for it. All 17 episodes on DVD (I had them previously as a 2nd generation VHS copy), with all sorts of spiffy extras. Anyone who knows my tastes in television knows that I think that Prisoner is probably one of the best things ever shown on the tube.
Of course, I think that all of the Planet of the Apes movies warrant many, many viewings, too… to the point of them having about a 20% chance of being background noise at my house whenever my VCS is running. Apes will be my next DVD acquisition, not in as much of a hurry, since I have ’em all on regular VHS.
During lunch hour today, I made a dash for the big & tall (do they have skinny dwarf stores?) store, to restock on gear that’s been wearing out… I treated myself to some new boxers (Superman, Spider-man the Movie, joe boxer smiley-face atoms, red plaid, and joe boxer big smiley face) a new khaki and a new blue pants. They were out of olive and forest green, so I’ll be back for those later. I’ll pick up maybe four new shirts next trip… the duty cycle on my current wardrobe can stand an injection of freshness. Maybe get some new birks, too, while I’m at it.
*note to self, pick up some soda for Friday night at the bro’s. Coke, Mt. Dew, and Pepsi.
By the way, If you want to make a backup of your journal on your own computer you can visit this URL: http://www.livejournal.com/export.bml Right now you must export it month-by-month.
Interesting… if I look at my friend’s list now, I can see all the deleted people.. they’ve got a line through ’em. kind of nifty… I need to clean that up. [edit – cleaned.]
