Power flickered a lot last night over a period of several hours. Kind of suprised that it didn't go out, of course i've been trained by home where if the power flickers more than once it's likely going to go out.

Got up about noon today, and decided to go to Costco for lunch. On the way i stoped by an auto place to get a do-it-yourself kit for fixing windshield dings, and stopped by U-haul to update the insurance info they'd been complaining about.

Had lunch at Costco and looked around at stuff, but didn't find anything worth buying.

Went to the mall and preordered Mario Kart Double Dash and Fire Emblem. Then went to Hot Topic, which was kinda a mistake. I hadn't thought about the fact that it's about a week till holloween, which means that Hot Topic was packed. However they only had a couple of the Zelda and Metroid t-shirts left, and i didn't want to risk them selling out. So i wandered around pickup up more stuff while waiting for the line to shrink. Of course the line didn't shrink, at least not much, but i eventually ended up with enough stuff that i decided it was worth using one of my 15% off cards. I finally gave up on finding more stuff and got in line, ended up being about $150 before the 15% off.

Got several t-shirts, another mesh-shirt (old one has a hold in it =P) a single ring collar (some kind of pleather rather than real leather) a small present for Caithris which i hope she'll like, some of the cheap CDs, a NES joypad keychain, a small stuffed mario, and possibly a few other random things.

Went to Trader Joe's after that and picked up some balance bars and monster drinks and some chocolate covered soy nuts.

Thinking i'll probably just spend the rest of the day sitting around home not getting anything done, unless anybody local wants to change their mind at the last minute and get some free sushi (yes, my feeble attempts at bribing people are meeting with a spectacular lack of success :)
