Speaking of "toys", talked to my dear old Mom tonight who told me she grabbed some boxes out of storage, full of, in her words, "your old toys and sporting goods."  I'm thinking maybe soccer gear and at best an Evel Knievel set, but she elaborated that it was mostly skateboarding stuff...which would have been from the late 70's and early 80's - in 1982 I was in casts for 6 months so it had to be prior to that.  I was totally taken with that whole original Dog Town / Z-Boys...
Done got my taxes did.  A few additional deductions this year got me a break on what I owe the fed's vs. last year, but the tax prep fee was a fricking monster for only a one hour appointment.  Getting a modest state refund, which helped ease the sting a bit.  Just good to have it done and behind me.  Plan to hit the shops this weekend after not getting out except a couple times in the past month or so.  Got that excited anticipation of what may be out there! 
I dunno - one of the Starz channels -it's over now...you sorry bastage.
 I'd look, but Johnny Dangerously just started.  Icehole. 
Meager finds from my truncated Las Vegas thrift run.  Had the most luck (but still not much) in Henderson.Hit some spots in Summerlin / Spring Valley and came up with nothing.Also hit the Goodwill Deja Blue Boutique and it was a total waste of time.  I guess they send items in better condition there, as well as recognized labels, but I found a 1970's cardboard stiff and sandpaper rough suit from Towncraft there for $50.  Van Heusen used shirts for $15.  No-name stiff...
 I don't use Global Shipping (mainly because of the insane cost to the buyer), and have shipped to US-based forwarding services several times without issue.  Better yet, it is considered "delivered" when it hits the US forwarding service...as opposed to having to get all the way to Japan before being marked "delivered".  If that's an option, I'd go for it.
 Probably reversible and the tags are in the pockets, like this one I picked up recently:  [[SPOILER]]
Vegas thrifting didn't turn up much, but i was working on 4 hrs sleep and just felt like crap so made it a short day. Some older Zegna, older PRL, arancrafts sweater. Mleh. Back to the hotel for a couple beers and already gave back a stack of their dough; and it's not even 6pm yet. Oy.
This diner waitress is hot. No stop can't stop.
