So much for going to bed early.

It turned out to be raining like mad when I finally got around to grabbing all the trash and going shopping; between that & stopping to grab a Whopper & rings at the BK (hey, I had the Diet Coke, okay?) I missed the closing time at Sam's Club by twenty minutes. Eh, no hummus tonight. So I went to Wal-Mart, got the envelopes and the light mayo and a copy of The Passion of the Christ. Not watching that before bedtime, no, sir.

I suppose I should have gone home at that point, but I wanted to take a look at Discland and Cheapo to see what they had in the way of traditional jazz that I could buy up and resell on eBay. The answer is not much, at least not if you're looking for the more obscure stuff found on the Audiophile, Jazzology, GHB or Stomp Off labels; both stores' jazz selections tend to run more to the modern "smooth jazz" stuff you can hear on 100.3 FM in these parts. The prices aren't all that great either, and I'm not sure how many of the CDs I do find will sell at a price of $6.99-$7.99

Of course I wound up buying music for myself - some U2, Butthole Surfers, Velvet Revolver, Ted Nugent, and one jazz CD by saxophonist Candy Dulfer.
