I’ve been under the weather these past couple of days (head cold and stress-induced malaise), but there’s nothing like some hot chicken soup and a financially ruinous round of retail therapy to perk up one’s spirits.
(On the other hand, the thought of actually paying the bill at the end of the month is threatening to send me into a relapse.)
This week’s damage (items purchased are manga unless otherwise indicated):
From Bibliarch (Glorietta) –> xxxHolic 12 = PHP438.00
From Powerbooks (Greenbelt) –> Cromartie High School 1; The Anime Companion 2 (reference book) = PHP648.00 (sale price)
From Amazon.com –> Kanon 5 (anime DVD); two books about the R.M.S. Titanic (no relation to anime/manga) = USD148.49 (with postage)
TOTAL DAMAGE: USD360.05/PHP16,130.24 (foreign currency elements translated at USD1.00=PHP44.80)
Moral of the day: Never get sick.

P.S.: Review of Lucky Star 2 to follow as soon as I get it. I don’t normally review manga, but I might write a piece or two about Yozakura Quartet and Aria if my schedule loosens up.
P.S. 2: A quick check of the blog stats page shows that I’m getting good traffic from my review of Lucky Star volume 1, plus some of my older DVD reviews (Last Exile volume 1 in particular). I should try to put these out more often.
P.S. 3: I want one.
