A Storm of Swords  
Wow, i didn't remember that, or that, or _that_! In fact i'd almost think that i didn't actually read the entire last third of the book the last time i went through it except that i _do_ remember the bit from the epilogue. Anyways, now i have about a week to wait till Feast of Crows gets here from SFBC. I _could_ get the audiobook off of Audible right now, except that i want to get through it quicker than i would listening to it, and according to the reviews they decided to replace the reader they had for the first three books with someone new, and he's nowhere near as good as the old guy =P

And on a random note, which is a worse day to go shopping? The friday after thanksgiving or the saturday after thanksgiving? I wonder if Costco is as crowded as everywhere else, or if everyone will be too busy going to malls to go to costco. I should also go to Ikea at some point, it would be nice to get some kind of actual stand to put my tv on, rather than the two milk crates it's currently perched on :) Not that that's a pressing issue since i'm not sure if i want to try moving the tv all by myself =P

I have an official TV stand in a box, never put together. I got it as part of a Best Buy "Get a TV larger than 27" and get a free TV stand!" promotion. I already had my own TV stand, so I didn't bother putting this one together.

I think it's still in the closet, still in the box, and I haven't put it together. Presumably it'll hold a 36" TV, as well as VCR/game stuff underneath. If you're interested you'd just have to come and get it and put it together.. Never got around to selling it or FreeCycling it.. and it isn't doing us much good. I'll look for it and see if I can't take a picture of the picture of what it looks like and email that to ya... if you're interested!

I'd certainly be interested to take a look at it. What color is it?

By the way, while packing stuff up i discovered that i seem to have two copies of Underworld. Did i never give the copy you loaned me back to you? :(

I'll have to check.. I think so...

Here's from the box:

I haven't looked inside, but I think it's black, and has a glass front. It's just been in a box in the closet forever because I like my current, and already similar, TV stand.. :)

This claims to be able to hold up to a 40" TV. So... yeah, if you wanted to make a weekend trip out here, maybe hang out or something and pick it up. Of course right now it's just sitting in the hallway. :)

I think we got Underworld back, but I'm gonna have to check. :)

Yeah, i'm interested, though given how busy i am with moving stuff i'm not sure when i'll be able to make it out =/

Well i'm pretty sure i've got two copies of Underworld currently, so i must have _someone's_ copy :)
