    We had two. A moma and her baby. They were fun, interesting and kept the vegetation down.

    I bought an ear irrigator last night, should be here by Monday. Thankfully my ear drained overnight before progressing to a full-blown ear infection but I get plugged up ears and subsequent infections pretty regularly so this should save me trips to the doctor in the future. And I suspect I still have a bunch of compacted wax that needs to be cleared out anyways.

    Usually my shopping routine is just food, usually pretty unhealthy food but cheap and fags, cigarettes.
    I live on a low budget and i´m not all that into getting stuff overall.
    I got some lenses though, for the eyes. Bought them and now i don´t want to use them. They feel weird in my eyes and i rather see a bit bad than to have that uncomfortable feeling of "stuff" in them.
    That i remember and a summer jacket, a green thin one at the beginning of September and now summer is over here for sure.
    Autumn time.
    Last game i bought btw, Football Manager 2019 hmmm, gotta think if it´s the truth and nothing but the truth.
    Must have been. I don´t recommend it.

    I'm really sorry about your ear situation, and I'm glad your irrigator worked for you. I use one for my sinuses, it works really well when I have a cold and helps me get over it more quickly. I've had to go to a walk-in clinic before to have my ears cleaned because I was getting vertigo it was so bad, that's something they can easily do for you if you need it too :)

    Yesterday I had to book travel for a work trip next week, I need to go to headquarters for a sort of meet-and-great. My company pays for everything, but they don't give you good plane seats, so I had to pay $600 myself to get those upgraded to first class. It'll be fun though, I'll be seeing my boss and another colleague I'm friends with but I've never met.

    I decided to spend Saturday afternoon at the salon-spa. Three hours, getting a manicure, pedicure, massage, waxing, and hair trim. Feeling better afterward :)

    The ear irrigator did work great and got some nasty gunk out of my ears. Pro tip - use warm water or you're going to be so dizzy you throw up and have to lay down.

    Bought birthday presents for someone. A book and a gift card to the Switch eStore since Nintendo hasn't figured out gifting yet.

    Old and New PCs. Then new one looks like it's peeking out from behind the old one. (The thumbscrews look like eyes)

    The greater hazard is the disarray on the desk. :smug:

    I have some things I'd like to add to your desk to bring it into the proper realm of being used and appropriately active. All I need is your address.... :)

    My "desk" has a mouse, laptop, water bottle, and phone. Anything more would probably break it. And there isn't room for anything more, too.

    Lots of paper would be appropriate and doesn't add much weight.
