After that, I went to Nathan's in Willowbrook Mall for a cheesesteak. Only a few days left to use this set of coupons! As I was driving on I-80, I saw a ferris wheel on top of Garret Mountain, which meant there was a carnival this evening. I went there and saw that they were charging $4 for parking so I decided not to go in. There wasn't a charge for parking when the carnival was in my town so I can wait until it moves to another location.
Instead, I went to Micro Center in Paterson to take another stab at buying an external DVD/CD drive and a bluetooth mouse for my netbook. Once again, nothing suitable was on sale, but I did find a numeric keypad + USB hub in clearance. (Trying it now and it works pretty nicely.) Got home just in time for the heavy rain and lightning.
