I recently went on a shopping spree of sorts, buying some interesting and mostly useful stuff. For example, there’s…

The man purse messenger bag from The Gap.

Bag

Yes, I actually bought something from The Gap. It was a little scary to be so trendy. However, I’m comforted by the fact that I’m still more than a little intimidated by those Hollister Co. stores. Those places freak me out. I feel like if I ever went in, I may never find my way out.

Also balancing out my trendy Gap messenger bag is my new <GEEK> shirt from Think Geek, which you have to be somewhat of a geek to fully understand.

Finally, rounding out my shopping spree is my new wallet, the “All-Ett billfold”:http://www.all-ett.com.

Wallet

What makes this wallet so special is that it is made from durable, rip-stop nylon, so that, even when full, it is thinner than my old wallet empty.

Outdated Computer

New iMac | New iPod

It was fun being on top while it lasted. Kudos to Jed for being the first to make fun of my now obsolete technology with the above image.

It’s the start of a new school year (reasonably close, at least), so it’s time to gear up. After all, both of my computers are showing their age, and my printer refuses to output yellow ink (and sometimes it’s not fond of printing at all). Therefore, after a couple weeks of mulling it over, I decided to take advantage of my educational discount and some nice back-to-school rebates from Apple to “upgrade the apparatus” (one of my favorite Tick-isms). Now I am the happy new owner of:

I made the final decision to go ahead with the purchase while in work today, so I stopped by the new mini Apple Store in the St. Louis Galleria on my way home. After taking a quick in-person look at the merchandise to make sure I had settled on what I really wanted, I presented my shopping list to one of the clerks. He took it in back, and one credit card swipe later, I was walking out to my car loaded down with technological goodness.

When all is said and done (taking into account the educational discount and the rebates), I will have saved $100 on the computer, and gotten the iPod for $90 and the printer for free. (But then there’s the tax…)

Oh, there’s one more reason that was probably in the back of my mind urging me towards this spending spree. Elvenyukiryu mentioned in her blog the other day about flirting with the possibility of buying an iPod mini, and there was no way that I was going to let her beat me out on getting an iPod! ;-P
