Shopping Spree

Looking at my bank account today I noticed that my salary including some of the annual bonuses had arrived. What's a man to do? Go shopping. What did I order? This:

First it was time for some music: Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues went into the Shopping Basket first. I had this on my list for quite a while, it's a 5 disc box set with 116 tracks, spun of from a TV series on PBS. The critics wrote very positive about it, so I decided to go for it. Next was Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska. I used to own this one on Vinyl, but since I last owned a record player more than 10 years ago haven't been able to listen to it for quite a while. Hence the decision to now order the CD. No idea why, I just felt like it.

Then it was time for some technology. The Dell Inspiron 8600 I'm using since September last year is WiFi enabled, so I finally ordered a BT Voyager 2000 to be able to work wireless at home as well. So far I've only been able to work wireless when I was travelling, time to catch up at home.

And that was enough shopping for a day.

I don't think we went on a shopping spree here, but then again, what is in the plastic bag my sister is carrying? And what am I carrying, could that be a shopping list? Probably not.
