More boringness

This weekend was basically the highlight of my spring break. Alex decided that he needed cookware, a blender, a VCR, and maybe a TV. So we decided to go to the mall. The first mall we went to didn't have a Sears, so we decided to split. We were there for about 10 minutes, but they still charged us for parking. Bastards.

So we headed to Tyson's. After browsing the cookware section of J.C Penny for an eternity or two, Alex just said "Screw it, I'm going to buy it online." Alex also decided to be silly and buy a $70 "watering can". Silly Alex. Then I introduced him to Orange Julius, or a generic derivation thereof. Thankfully, he had some sense left, and loved it. We ended up having two each, actually. Yummy

So then there was not much left, except to stop by the CD store. Thankfully, they had the Spaceballs DVD out on the shelf early, so I snatched that immediatley. It has provided me with much amusement since. Then, at last, we were off to our final destination: Eddie Baurer. nym apparently loves cashmere socks, so I wanted to see what the fuss was all about. But of course, they do not stock them :(

The rest of the weekend was basically spent struggling with GTicker, which is now in a decent state. It is almost documented, and very configurable now. Use It(TM).
