Stuff I Want III

My son Lars says, “You are the easiest person to buy for; all I have to do is look at your blog.”

Ha — he’s right, actually. Now where’d I put that photo of the 2011 Mustang…….

It’s a good thing to want stuff. Mother always used to say that. If you had everything you wanted, what then? Where’s the joy and expectation in life — the wanting to work for something cool? I think Mother also said it to keep Mavis and me “grounded,” so we wouldn’t feel entitled or spoiled or selfish. That was a big thing with her.

Anyway, back to me.

After talking with Helen on Sunday, I have decided to run with the Barnes & Noble nook. $149 and free shipping. That purchase will be made today. But the other thing, oh my. I must have one of these, and soon:

The Mr. Coffee Café Frappe.

Actually, I’ve never had a Frappuccino at Starbucks, because I could think of happier ways to spend 140 calories in the morning (and that’s the sugar-free variety). But to make them myself, anytime, with only the ingredients and amounts I want, and the size I want? That sounds like fun.

Want, want, want, I want this. It’s good to want things.

So, what’s on your want list this day? Only six months till Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa, ya know. Time to get bizzy.

You may want to consider spending another $50 and getting the regular nook instead of the nook wifi for the 3G connections on your trip. That way, when you travel you can shop for and download more books wherever you are, because you may be on the highway. You don’t have to be connected to wi-fi. (It’s also in stock as well as accessories at BN over in Mansburg) Pros and cons but overall I love my nook and I am glad I have the 3G one for when I travel. But now I’ll have a nook friend to loan… Read more »

WOW! That’s like $60 less for the 3G version vs. when I bought Bluvox his for Christmas. At $199, you should REALLY think about getting 3G – and the cool thing is that you don’t have to buy a data plan or anything to get the 3G… it just WORKS! I think you pay a few pennies for it when you buy/download a book. I **know** you will LOVE the Nook!

Well…she’s going to have to schlep it back and forth this Fall…cuz I want to see it in her kitchen when I go over. Maybe we can work out a schedule for every other day or something. :0)
