Last Night

When I walk into a big bookstore, my credit card winces. For good reason. Last night I walked into the B&N in Bellevue, and walked out with Home Buying for Dummies, and also with Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML: A Brain-Friendly Guide to HTML & CSS, DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model, and Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference: A Complete Resource for HTML, CSS, DOM & JavaScript. I've gotten tired of knowing HTML only by osmosis, and of asking dumb questions of my patient modern HTML-savvy friends.

These books, of course, are now listed in my LibraryThing.

Then over to Bellevue Square mall, to Lush, to restock. I picked up more Rock Star and some more You Snap The Whip. And for the first time some Reincarnate solid shampoo.
