Today was a very successful haul for me. My biggest one yet! 
I started out at Target. I had lifted at least 10 Essie nail polishes from there earlier this year and returned them. (Be careful if you do something like this, you can only return something without a receipt 3 times a year.) The return total was $90.50 (for nailpolish! Crazy right?!) I then used the giftcard (in store credit) to buy a new lifting purse because my old one was way too small! I still have $47.71 on the giftcard for later! 😊 So I’ll start with my haul!

Ankh-Morpork “Chocolate” Bonbons, from Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett!

It was a tossup between this or rancid yak butter tea (also from this book), and between you and me rancid yak butter is hard to come by in disgusting heathen America. I was also craving chocolate-covered nuts, which are either incredibly waxy fake chocolate with dessicated nuts, or hideously expensive and dispensed only by mystical chocolate gurus atop Mt. Godiva. 

Anyway, let the Guild of Confectioners describe their thinly-veiled distaste:

Ankh-Morpork people, said the guild, were hearty, no-nonsense folk who did not want chocolate that was stuffed with cocoa liquor and were certainly not like effete la-di-dah foreigners who wanted cream in everything. In fact, they actually preferred chocolate made mostly from milk, sugar, suet, hooves, lips, miscellaneous squeezings, rat droppings, plaster, flies, tallow, bits of tree, hair, lint, spiders, and powdered cocoa husks. This meant that, according to the food standards of the great chocolate centers in Borogravia and Quirm, Ankh-Morpork chocolate was formally classed as “cheese” and only escaped, through being the wrong color, being defined as “tile grout.”
