|05:17 pm - this week - still sucking|
Better externally, so-so internally.
sharkins stopped by to visit the other night, that was nice.
Read Harry Potter 6 today, found it decent enough. This one had less of what felt like Giant Plot Obstacles, or maybe the story just resonated better with the times. Some nice coming-of-age bits. Makes me wish I knew a bit more about how UK school operate in terms of grade levels.
It never fails - I always want the expensive toys. If there are two versions of something, usually the more expensive is the version that will have the one feature I find indespensable. GPS units, for example - I want one with rechargeable batteries. So apparently I want to pay a hundred dollars or so extra. Although I suppose what I should do is cost out how much batteries of the non-rechargeable variety would cost over a period of time, and see how long it would take to go though that extra hundred bucks or so in batteries...
What else - oh, they did more braces stuff post-cleaning yesterday, I now have a faux tooth in the giant space where the implant will go. I still think my teeth look bizarre, but I imagine I always will. It's just a normal incisor, no.
Which gave me a post-procedural all-over body ache thing today. Yay. But I have complained about that enough other places.

I'm probably going to order one of these
for my GPS and remote controls and other AA-powered devices. I'm pretty sure rechargeable AA batteries will save me money in the long run over disposable alkalines or devices with built-in rechargeable battery packs.
I like my Monster rechargable batteries for the camera because I can swap them out in the field like Ben said. Usually any rechargable battery pack has a lifetime of 2-3 years, and I would not like to junk the whole device just because it's too expensive to replace the battery pack.
Long lj post about my review of HP6 here
if you are interested.
