If you've been paying attention then you'll remember that we're in Jackson doing some house hunting stuff. Well, after dinner (yummy sushi!) we thought it would be a good idea to drive around a bit, do things like locate the local Salvation Army corps. Well, we drove past the mall, and decided to stop. While wondering around, I spied an FYE. I like FYE, unfortunately, we lack one in Pensacola. Well, I went wondering, and found myself in the ANIME section.

That's when I spied it.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya volume 1 on DVD.

It's not surprising that I found it, after all, they even have one of those plastic placards for it. What is surprising is the price. It had a big ole $9.99 sticker on it. I've been wanting to see this series, so I quickly snatched it up and bought it.

Anyways, while we were checking I saw something else.

A Luke Skywalker ForceFX Lightsaber. I picked up one in the box, and then the guy behind the counter turned around and snatched up the display model, and passed it over. So, there I was, a big smile on my face, swinging around that ForceFX saber. I've long loved the Master Replica lightsabers, and since I first heard about them have wanted one. I've always wondered which I'd want more, the limited editions hilts or the ForceFX sabers. Frankly, the answer is both, but unfortunately, my money is needed elsewhere.

Well, my wife finished buying the DVD and her CD and walked over to me. She frowned, and asked "Just where do you think we would put that?"

I looked up at her, and realized something. Every house we looked at today had a fireplace. So, I grinned at her, and answered with full honesty, "Why, it goes on the mantel dear."

She just rolled her eyes and shook her head.
