Easy come, easy go - delta_november

A client paid me on Friday, which was nice.  Not a huge amount, maybe 10% of my current accounts receivable, but it still justified a little shopping trip.  I now have:
- A Lenovo S10e Ideapad computer.  This is a little 10" netbook which I can use to avoid having to carry around my 17" mobile workstation.  People, brand-name computers are now under $500.  When did this happen?  Why was I not told?  
- A 12" x 9" x 3" precision ground block of granite.  This is flat to 3 micro-meters, and is the standard by which I shall judge the flatness of other things.  No, you may not use if for baking.
- A boring head for my milling machine (exciting!).

Today I lost my glasses while out walking (I was wearing my sunglasses, and lost the regular glasses).  One re-trace on bike and a second on foot failed to find them, and so they're gone.  Tomorrow I shall have to have more made.  Add that on to last Wednesday's dentist visit, and the discretionary spending is complete :(.

Oh no! Specs MIA! Calamity! You have my sympathy... I hate shopping for glasses, it's so hard to find something that looks good when you can't actually see.

It is my sincere hope that I can go back to the place I bought them and say "Make me more just like that."
