YEAH you did!! :D It's fantastic, even the Dr. No original looks incredible on Blu Ray. They did a really good job on enhancements in my opinion. I've seen all of them in my Blu Ray collection now, and will see them many more times!

Got my first phone case. Likely going to continue using it too. It gives a good grip, looks pretty cool, and is my favorite color.

Probably doesn't protect the phone at all though lol.


Expecting a care package from mother dearest soon with more gifts in there :)

Wow I'm an idiot, I even replied to that one. I remembered seeing something and I think subconsciously I had thought it was a product image, and not one specifically of yours.

I'm surprised that doesn't come with a golf tee pop-out stand for watching movies in landscape.

Pretty sure people have been doing it since the Aztecs. They're spicy and chocolatey, which I find a good combo. They're pretty hot but the sweet chocolate mellows it out quickly. The Habenero one is the only one I pick up any actual pepper flavor, the rest are just the heat.

Very interesting. I actually Google'd it after I asked you and now I'm curious to try one sometime.

Lindt makes a "chili" bar which you may be able to find.
