so I went to sleep at roughly 9am and woke up about 11am. not a lot of sleep was to be had, and my sleep mask was uncomfortable today. so, shopping I went.
Total = ~$13 - ~$6 trade in credit (hardcover Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya, hardcover Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya)
not a great deal but those books were extra copies I had anyway. for some reason they didn't pick up my hardcover Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya. the manga and anime selection were slim pickings, but I did see vol 1-4 of ghost in the shell sac 2nd gig. I didn't know which vol had the artbox so I decided to avoid them (I have vol 4 that I picked up at Fry's electronics for a dollar).
went to AZ mills, was disappoint. FYE had closed down, and borders had closed down LONG ago. saw a rock store- (black market minerals I think?), and proceeded to buy 2 rocks for about $15 total to make pseudo bookends. the actual bookends were all in the $30+ price range, so I thought the slightly mismatched ones were fine too. the cashier was cute :)
got some chinese-american food at suki hana. one of the servers there was cute too.
I'll go check the mail in an hour or so- I've been baking in the car, so I need a shower. But first, to eat some food and watch some Rio. I predict my update will include caving into that momohime figure, enjoying Rio, and going gaga over my packages.
edit: so watching Rio made me buy this figure on impulse
so aaanyway, the sky resort is ridiculous. but I'm almost used to this show constantly upstaging itself in outrageousness. kidnapping your guests with a floating casino manned by a single supercomputer that walks around as a sexy dealer (who, coincidentally, looks alot like the Battle Vixens version of Ryofu Housen.. weird). yeah, Howard keeps amazing me. I now see that Rina would be a good logical counterpart to Rio- I mean, if she keeps spouting bad luck for players, it should balance out the fact that you win tons when Rio is dealing.
I watch Rio: Rainbow Gate! for the plot!
Plot-wise, I think the value of the gate-holder cards is diminished, simply because of how Rio wins this one.
edit 2: so, I've passed the budget for momohime this month, it'll have to wait until the middle of march. but I've got enough for a smaller purchase, so I'll be picking between a kagami or ryoko figure.
will make the decision tomorrow.
to my horror, I purchased Step Up Love Story vol 1 instead of the complete collection. oh well, another thing to complete. other things that arrived:
this stuff is like cocaine. and cocaine's a hell of a drug. maybe I should scratch the ryoko/kagami purchase this month. they've been out for 2+ years now, another month or two couldn't hurt.
