Rock on, airport shopping

What with all the time I spent today first in European City Airport and then in Heathrow, I wound up wandering aimlessly through a lot of shops. Which shops resulted in:
  • A two-pack of 1-liter bottles of Jameson's, for 27 euros, or about $33 US (bottles run around $28 EACH at my local liquor store)
  • Random, last-minute, not-totally-crappy gifts
  • Franz Ferdinand's debut album, for 8 pounds sterling (the new release was there, too, but for 11 or 12 sterling--which, with the exchange rate, fucking hell!)
  • A hugely overpriced donut and even more ridiculously overpriced bagel sandwich. But by that point, it was all fake money anyway.
Uneventful travels, otherwise. Read for my classes, made up a quiz for my comp students, wrote a pretty damn enthusiastic recommendation for a former student I don't actually totally love (but who's smart, very hard-working, and I'm quite convinced would be an exceptional summer intern), and finally started in on Slammin' Sammy Pepys. Good to be home. Not so good to be teaching tomorrow.

Welcome home!

Somehow "slammin' Ohm's law" doesn't have the same ring to it.

Not a bad deal on the booze. I know we were talking about prices awhile ago, but it was confusing because of the different sizes.. Here Jaimeson's seems to be:

750mL: $18.99
1L: $26.99
1.75L: $31.99
