In an attempt to break the regular gloominess I passed by the local supermarket. Not that I was in any great need of buying anything there (other than food, but I could have bought that in the convenience store, but anyway. Since it is my brother’s birthday in a month, and soon time for Christmas, I looked around for some gift ideas, I’m always terrible at coming up with gifts. I did, however, find something I think would make a perfect birthday gift for my brother, but it’s probably better if I don’t write it here, in case he against all odds should read this.
But I’m sure it would be appreciated.
Since it’s also my birthday soon (well, almost two months left), it’s probably time soon to think about a wish-list for myself as well.
By the way, some books from Amazon arrived today. I was a bit puzzled, I didn’t expect them until next week. Also, I am now the proud owner of a grey sack with the text “United States Postal Service”, inside which the package was put.
I like that Norway doesn’t have VAT for books, and that one can bring in books without customs fees, in Sweden one always risked having to pay a lot extra when ordering from the US this way.
