I ended up buying some new CDs at tower. I don't think my dad has bought a CD in years (if ever), so if he already has the latest from the White Stripes & Wilco, I'll be shocked. I have no idea if he'll like them, but they are both great albums in my opinion.
While I was there, i bought the new Mum CD. As you can see, I'm listening to it now. It is pretty good, but maybe not as good as their other one.
Because I'm such a slacker (and because my family will be at the lake), I had to spring for priority mail. That is some expensive postage!
On the way home, I bought Office for OS X. I'm not sure how I feel about that -- buying an apple and immediately installing Microsoft products. But AppleWorks just isn't doing it for me and I have a thesis to finish.
