New toys!

by Suw on October 21, 2005

I succumbed to the lure of New York today and ended up having a day buying stuff. Took a trip to the Apple store and got myself new earplugs (with remote), and an iTalk that turns my iPod into a dictaphone. Been wanting one of those for ages. As it happened, I was wearing my NTK iMachiavellian T-shirt, which drew a smirk and a 'nice T-shirt' from the sales assistant.

Actually, that is one of my favourite photos of me in ages.
Then went to Kidrobot, and got myself a small robot panda figure, and some sort of… rabbit. I think. Japanese stuff anyway, so way cute. There were some adorable Furillas (I think…) that came vacuum packed. Good job I saw those after I'd paid, otherwise the bill would have been much higher.
Popped into Borders and treated myself to V for Vendetta, and Watchmen, neither of which I've read since I was at uni, some considerable time ago. I only ever seem to buy graphic novels when I'm in the States for some reason. And quite often, when I'm with Dan.

T-shirt drew another comment from the sales assistant. Hm. Must wear it more often.
Also spotted a book that I was deeply tempted by, but managed to find reserves of resistance to (particularly when I noted its very brick-like qualities), called The Vampire Book: The Encyclopedia of the Undead. Fact that it had Kiefer Sutherland on the front cover as David from The Lost Boys (one of my very favourite films) had nothing to do with its desirability at all. The fact that there didn't seem to be an entry for Arnold Paole, though, made it a bit less credible in my view, but maybe I'm just a bit of a vampire history snob.
Then we went for a wander through Central Park. Managed to find the Korean masseurs that Kevin suggested I keep my eye out for, and I have to say that ten bucks gets you a rather nice back and shoulder massage.
Lovely day, nice and relaxed with absolutely no rushing whatsoever. Put some photos up on Flickr in case you're interested.
Tomorrow is slightly busier, but not much. Catch the red-eye home on Saturday.

That is a great photo.
And Kidrobot looks like a fun place to explore. Assuming one lives somewhere with shelf space.
