Sunday Afternoon at the Mall

The weather was nice, so daisy_knotwise and I headed north to Gurnee Mills to pick up new rugs for the bathroom, a new pair of slacks for me, and a particular type of Corningware casserole from the Corning Revere Outlet Store. We failed on the last, but ended up with a new set of Corelle dishes with ivy on them, along with a really nice saucepan to replace the Visions one with the peeling non-stick finish and a new set of Farberware cookware to replace the set I got when I went off to grad school *mumble* years ago.

In a few minutes, Sam is bringing his computer over and we're going to set it up behind my firewall and see if we can get it to behave itself, as it's running extremely badly when connecting to his ISP. Of course, all of the other computers will be turned off then. :)
