    I just did a little mid-night online shopping... Saw an awesome deal...


    Onkyo 1000 Watt 7.1 Home Theatre system...
    • DTS-ES®
    • Dolby® Digital EX
    • iPod® compatible
    etc...

    $399 Free shipping :eek: :cool:


    Funny... Part of the Ad said "iPod ready"


    What did you buy?

    hell no i didn't buy anything i wouldn't be caught dead out there trying to buy things.

    Not to mention i can't be standing for longer than 30 minutes.

    Why on earth would someone go out to buy things today. I don't get it.

    Okay, all online I ordered a

    HDTV tuner for about $190.

    2 Apple iSight cameras for about $120 each. (One for me, one for my mom)

    19" LCD Monitor for $200 after rebates.

    That's probably enough today. :)

    I was so close to buying this exact same system at newegg... But was "Out of stock" (At $499)... Then this Ad. was mailed to me... Didn't want to miss out on this deal ($399) so I ordered at midnight on their website... Shipping was FREE!


    I'm so Happy :D :)

    It is fracking pouring rain here in Portland and I tried to find the Apple Store at Pioneer Place but just could not, to much rain to walk around in. Anyway, forgot to bring a map that showed the actual location of the store. What a bust. Probably would not have purchased anything anyway.

    My father and I were volunteered to try to find a 20" combo tv for my stepmother's grand kids so they can watch their educational DVD's while the parents can watch what they want to. However, all of the TV's were sold out by 9am. Go figure.

    Just could not bring myself to purchase even an external HD and case today.

    I felt obligated to make a contribution to the American economy, albeit in an insignificant way by purchasing two Baby Ruth candy bars, USA Today and the new TV Guide. I know ... it was quite the sporty thing to do.

    I bought some lime/calcium cleaning stuff.

    My espresso machine was looking a little gritty.

    I checked the apple online store, but nothing of excitement there.

    To answer your question. No I have not bought anything yet and I'm not planning on purchasing anything either.

    I bought a "#3 chicken strips combo, six-pack, value size it, sweet tea no lemon" at Chick-Fil-A.

    Later on I will buy some concessions at the Hurricanes/Maple Leafs game at the RBC Center here in Raleigh.

    But no trips to the mall for me today.

    my wife stopped to pick up a couple of dvds while i was (am still) at work. she stopped by radio shack, but they were out of $10 BT headsets, so that was it. we might go see a movie with my family (thanksgiving tradition and all). i think i might do a bit of shopping tomorrow - i could use some pijamas. i forgot how cold it gets at night in boxers even after getting married.

    who knows, i may pick up an isight today. can't think of anything else.

    I bought a cup of coffee. Treated myself to one of the $2.99 varieties because I'm worth it. :p

    I might have to go buy some film later, as I'm supposed to take pictures of my cousin's show (this should be awesome, and give his brand a big break for more local fans)

    I had to work today. I really want to go to the Apple store in Soho (NYC) but it is so cold out I really don't feel like going. I will have to do my holiday shopping next week.
