Long weekend checklist

Get lease renewed so still have place to live: check (plus bonus of renewal rebate promotion that management happens to have on at the moment = $500.00 off my first month's rent on the new lease!)
Get annual eye exam so will be permitted to purchase new supply of contact lenses: check (my lucky weekend, obviously ... the doc had me go walkabout in the mall wearing a sample pair of "new edition" of the type of contacts I've been wearing to see how they were for me and they were good = two!!! rebates for going with new product)
Get new battery in watch so I'll know what time it is again: Check (no financial benefits from that one, but since picked it up during contacts walkabout, I got to use the tiny engraving on the back as test that I could still read miniscule print)
Drop into Northern Reflections after optometrist visit since it's in the same mall and get a couple pairs of jeans before my existing pairs wear out: Well, dropped in yes. Lots of jeans ... store had every size and length they stock except mine. :-( Will check again when optometrist phones that my ordered contacts are in ... hopefully they'll have restock by then.
Extra bonus: visited HMV in mall and got the "Last of the Summer Wine" 1995 Reserve Vintage DVD (containing the special I just watched along with an entire season of regular episodes) and also the season 1 DVD of Stephen Fry's "Kingdom". If it's going to continue to rain just about every day for the rest of this summer, at least I'll have new entertainment in reserve. ;p
