Oook!

It's official - I'm on the autistic spectrum! :thumbl:

And, yes, this IS good news - the beast now has a name, and because I've got an official letter* I can get help and tax reductions and things! Yay!

Books. LBEs (Season Tickets). And a refund for my canceled pelagic trip (that's going into the British Invasion Tour 2016 fund 8) ).

Received the Ankh-Morpork jigsaw from the shop. Kind of selfishly, it's for my mum's birthday as she loves jigsaws but, rather selfishly, I plan to frame it when she's finished and have it for myself rather than it just being broken up and given to a charity shop.

A pair of boots I "accidentally" bought myself for xmas. 8) But, they were too small. :( Reviews said they ran small, so I ordered up a size, but these were Euro sizes and I'm wondering if the U.S. sizing conversion was off. Sending them back tomorrow for the next size up. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm a huge fan of those 'accidental' purchases, myself. 8) I managed to put a 5-volume compendium of the entire Bloom County comic strip in my amazon cart the other day, tripped over the cat, and hit 1-click check-out before I knew what had happened. :lol:

Oook!

Got some stamp-sheets that were missing from the collection - yay!

But the really funny thing was that, while the note telling me to collect the parcel had the official Post Office logo and wording, the address it sent me to was a corner store a block from my home - one of those places you can buy milk, candy, cigarettes or lottery tickets (as well as variations on the corner-store theme - you know the kind of place I mean) - and not my local post office. :shock:

When I first saw the note I noticed the name of the location to receive my package before anything else, and I was sure it was some sort of advertising ploy for the store. But they really do have a bunch of shelves behind the counter with postal packages on them, and the guy used the store's register to log out my package. :thumbl:

Reminded me of TV shows & movies I've seen set in 19th-to-mid-20th Century, where the post office was part of the town's General Store
