early birthday shopping habits

Is it bad that even though my birthday is around 3 weeks away, I’ve been doing a little random spending with the “its my birthday present to myself” justification? I’ve bought some more manga recently (2 volumes of Planetes and volume 1 of Tokyo Babylon. I also bought a little bit of yarn. I think I’m coming down with a cold, even though I went to the yarn store, I totally forgot my main reason for going there, getting some woolwash. I’m doing a bit of mind numbing repetitive work from home now and even though it is hard to concentrate because of the impending cold, I can look up from time to time and watch the Transporter, which breaks up the monotony a little bit.

Well, if I am home sick over memorial day weekend, at least I have reading material and yarn for a quick project to keep myself occupied.
