Pirates

The Further Adventures of Garage Saling; HP movies

Yesterday afternoon I was glancing at the garage sale classifieds again, and I remarked offhandedly, "Huh, you don't see that every day.  'Moving to Sweden'."  It was about five miles away so I didn't think anything of it, but my dad thought that sounded like they'd probably have a lot of stuff, possibly a lot of pretty good stuff, and suggested we check it out.  Okay!  We hit a few sales and found some good stuff, him more than me.  And it was such fun going with him that I suggested we start early this morning and make a day of it.  Since my love of a good bargain is inherited from him, it didn't require much convincing.  In addition to petting a mini Schnauzer and getting in tons of practice driving (I'm getting good at parking on the side of the street.  And I'm even starting to have fun driving, rather than it feeling like class), my two days of hunting at a total of at least a dozen sales yielded the following:

Yesterday we also went to the library again, where I snagged the 3rd and 4th Harry Potter movies.  I've only seen them once each, and I thought maybe the adaptations weren't as unbearable as I remembered them, so that maybe I would want to consider seeing the fifth movies after all.

Oh, and on an unrelated note, I am witty!  For the first time in my life I thought of a funny caption, and placed third in TV Squad's "Subtle Subtitles" contest this week!  I was attempting to make a complicated metaphor about a writer killing himself with a pencil, but then I realized Matthew Perry's character probably wasn't a writer (I don't know anything about the show), so that fell through...and I realized simpler is better.
