Crio Bru  
Glenn bought me a bag of Crio Bru a few weeks back, and it's so good!! It's from a local Utah company, so we can buy it in the grocery store locally. It's roasted cocoa beans ground like coffee, so you get a chocolate coffee sort of hot beverage. I'm not much of a coffee drinker, so this is a nice change from my usual tea. And cocoa is full of things good for you, so bonus! It's pricey, so definitely a treat for me, but could see drinking it every day.

Gorgeous!  
One of my lovely and talented f'listers is selling some of her travel prints, and they're gorgeous! Go check them out, and buy a few, maybe? :D

Home Decorating  
I discovered while at the Grand Canyon, that Pendleton now makes towels. They're gorgeous! I've been wanting to update my bath linens, as I've been using the same set for 10+ years now. Darned things won't die! They were high end towels I got on a going out of business sale, along with a shower curtain, which I'm also still using. My bathroom walls are a very dark grey, so the Pendleton towels will had a snap of colour, and I think a jewel tone, solid shower curtain will be perfect.

Score!  
I finally got a pair of snow boots! And on sale, and in the colour I wanted. Ever since discovering Columbia's Omni-Heat last year when I bought a hat lined with it, I've been a fan. This year, I got a lightweight winter jacket with it, and I really wanted boots with Omni-Heat if the stars converged :D And they did! No more cold feet for me. Keep your fingers crossed they fit. I've returned more than one pair of boots over the last two years in my search.

Alas  
I've been looking for a rocking chair to replace the torn up armchair in my bedroom. I was in the second hand store today, and found the perfect one. It's Arts & Crafts, 1940. I adore Arts & Crafts style! And this chair is sturdy and well made - not like a lot of the ones I've seen so far. Unfortunately, it's $250 I don't have. I really shouldn't have walked in to the shop.

New To Me  
I got an email touting the new fall, must have fashion trend, coated denim. I had no idea what this was. Turns out, it's jeans coated with some sort of resin to make them look like leather. Though they don't look it, supposedly, it's breathable. They look uncomfortable to me, not to mention expensive. I also discovered in the course of my research, that stirrup pants are back, though they seem to be part of the coated denim thing.

Some useless information for your day.

Raiders on BluRay  
I see they're about to release a boxed set of all the Indiana Jones movies on BluRay for nearly $70. I wonder if they'll ever release the original movies on BluRay individually? I only want Raiders and Last Crusade. I can't do the bugs in Temple of Doom, and I really disliked the fourth skull one. They probably will eventually, but not till they've milked all they can from the box set.

In other news, I really want the new larger Kindle Fire! Not sure if the 4G one is worth it though. Haven't crunched numbers to see if what they charge for access is reasonable or not. We do have wireless at work now, but it's still filtered through the same net nanny software, so I wouldn't be able to use the tablet there really.

And in other other news, I think I have another stupid cold.

Too cute  
Thought this was adorable. wish they had something similar for Iron Man (the only IM one is a boxing motif), or for Loki.
