Textbooks, and assorted miscellania
delirium happy
I had a bit of a "well duh" moment earlier, in which I was hit by something so startlingly obvious that I really should have relaised it before. I'm feeling rather cranky just recently, and am somewhat impatient for my new university term to start (which doesn't happen for another month and a bit yet). Lots of nifty and interesting stuff to learn, and a sense of routine for my life and what have you. Well, that's going to have to wait, but I realised today that there was nothing to stop me from buying the textbooks for a couple of my classes, and getting a head start on some of the work -- not that I anticipate that I'll particularly need it, but I have learning-things energy right now, and it would be a shame to put it to waste. So, after a little time spent looking through my upcoming classes an amazon order has now been placed and I should have a copy of Quantum Physics of Atoms, Molecules, Solids, Nuclei and Particles (Eisberg and Resnick) and Introduction to High Energy Physics (Perkins) any day now. Yay.

And seeing as how I'm me, I also found it entirely impossible to make an amazon order without also purchasing a bunch of other stuff. Season one of Angel on DVD, the two Neil Gaiman Death graphic novels and a CD apiece by Tori Amos and The Pixies will also be winging their way towards me. Double yay.

I understand the Amazon order "extras" - I don't place an impulse (i.e., I need this now!) order without getting at least one item on my wish list, too. The stuff on my wish list I have thought about and considered and deemed it worthy of being there, because I truly wish for it. If I can't afford to get at least one impulse and one wishlist item, then I force myself to wait. Sometimes, that keeps me from getting impulse buys I didn't really want/need.
