Two errands of yesterday:

- Our first errand was to obtain a tuxedo for Seth and Karen's wedding. We pondered the question of buying vs. renting, and settled on buying as the right choice, given how rarely I'm called upon to wear a tux.

Lori suggested that we look in David's Bridal. In the same shopping center in Monroeville, we noticed a shop called Jack's Tuxedo advertising a $39.99 price.

We were very pleased with Jack's. The salesman gave us no bullshit and no weaseling to get us to buy something more expensive than we wanted. Even if we could have gotten a somewhat cheaper rental elsewhere, I'm willing to pay $10 to be treated decently.

- After that, we went to McGinnis Sisters, not because we needed to so much, but because we were out in Monroeville. I was glad to go--it has so many lovely products, and I hadn't made it there in years. We ended up buying lots and lots of nice food, including some delectable herb-roasted turkey, some sparkling cider, a box of petit-fours, and more.
