In other news, came home to find that there were several pressies in the snail mail. First off, two books - Myth-Fortunes by Robert Asprin and Jody Lynne Nye and The Iron Jackal by Chris Wooding. Second, two music CDs - first, the new Abney Park CD, Off the Grid, and the Thea Gilmore CD, John Wesley Harding.
So it has been a good day.
The only problem is that I've discovered that my DVD/CD player is well and truly dead. This means a new player is in my near future, and I've been thinking of getting a large tv while I'm at it ('cause I might get a better deal on it). May have to go shopping for stuff this weekend. In the meantime, can't watch any DVDs (and I've got a stack of about 20 to watch in the queue) or listen to CDs on the stereo.
