The Great List.

As I have mentioned before, items such as books and CDs in the US are much cheaper than they are back home in Australia. Normally, I wouldn't post a list of things I got, i.e. on Christmas, but considering what I have purchased and the generorky nature of both myself and many people on my friends list, I figure this will actually be of interest to some of you. So without any further ado ...

Computer Games

Now, I'm not much of a gamer, but The Sims is the kind of thing to capture my imagination. Thus, as my copies at home are not only illegal but not functioning, I picked up the original game while I was here, along with all seven expansions.

And then I bought various other miscellaneous objects, woo! Of particular note is a model locomotive I bought for the model railway I will some day build.

Yes, I really am buying a second suitcase this afternoon. I fly home on the 3rd, though I'd much rather not.
