This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also a huge fan of Smash Bros. and writing.
My last purchase was a new handle and flapper for a toilet. Yay for adulting?

A subscription to NordVPN to access Amazon's region restricted content. The connection runs like a dog but it's worth it to catch up with my favourite cheesy Amercian shows...

Finally broke down and bought a new Kindle Paperwhite. My old OG Kindle Touch was purchased back in 2011 and I just can't find a replacement battery anymore.

I'm honestly not impressed? The new one has a light, sure, but they removed the speakers, and the headphone jack, and it feels just as slow as its 8 year old counterpart. Oh well, at least I know I wasn't missing much.

Also: Amazingly, it's been 8 years and the Kindle's default storage capacity has gone from 4gb to....8gb.

Wow, absolutely stunning.

A baked potato for lunchfast today (yes, I just made that term up), and a microSD card for my Switch so I could move screenshots to my laptop easily.

A caesar chicken wrap and a ginger ale because I spent the entire evening baking a cheesecake for tomorrow and didn't feel like actually making anything beyond that.

(Look, cheesecakes are tasty, but they're exhausting to make, okay?)

Congrats on the car!

My last purchase was a tank of gas. It's nice to be able to fill up for just $20.

I finally cracked and bought Shield. Goodbye, Winter Of Productivity.



And also...

The deposit on this fine piece of tailpipe



Time to celebrate National Tree Week in style!

Nice car, congrats! Always had a soft spot for the Euro versions of the civics - especially those gen 8's. Dont get me wrong I love my north american 9th gen Si, but it just seems kinda bland from the front.

This Black Friday I was sensible for once. I only bought two hard drives and some socks. I really needed both, been running my nas at 95% capacity for like 6 months now, and I was down to only 8 pairs of socks. Considering I go 10 days in between laundry trips occasionally...Yeah, had to be done.

@Skarmizard and @Fullmental Thank you, chaps! And having lived in America for a few years I'll well aware my new toy is probably dinky by US standards. But it's certainly an upgrade from the Ford Fiesta I used to own (and stupidly tried to drive home after last year's Work Christmas Party, resulting in a smashed-up bonnet and year-long driving ban).

Here are some more pictures of my new Best Friend: Apologies to non-petrol heads, I'm dead chuffed about this vehicle!



Back to the topic at hand, the last thing I bought was a big bag of pork scratchings 'cause what the heart wants is not always good for it.

Totally agree, I live in an area where like half the rural population drives a coal rolling, lifted f-250. Don't care, my Civic is fun to drive and cheap to maintain. Perfect daily driver.

I have the day off work so was able to make a trip to my local butchers for...

More pork scratchings - this time in a very classy plastic bag.



All the fat, salt and flavour of bacon with none of that boring protein.

A passionate bunch, Aureums are limited by their own minds. Who knows what happens when they break through their mental barriers?
Dairy Queen’s Chicken and Waffles...

Chicken is slightly dry and the waffles taste almost purely like sugar.

A puzzle-I've always liked puzzles, and there's something more satisfying about a physical puzzle than a virtual one IMO (nothing wrong with virtual ones, though!) Don't really know where in my house I can work on it, though...

Takes themselves a bit too seriously, but is otherwise friendly. It is most active in the middle of the night.
I bought some watercolors and paintbrushes, and a 64 GB SD Card.

This Pokemon is very relaxed and enjoys analyzing things. This Pokemon is also quick to snark at anything that gives it an opportunity
I got the Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX Soundtrack because I'm a sucker for video game OSTs and I've had "Igniter (iX version)", "Beyond Probability", "Lightning Berserk", "Thunderstorm", and "Avalanche Breakdown" stuck in my head for a good couple weeks.
