DAMN!! I totally forgot about this thread. I also forgot to buy a thermometer too. Guess there are a lot more suggestions. I really like that Newegg one. It's back up to $29.99 though. But with $3 shipping its worth it.
I bought one through an Amazon seller, $15.50 plus shipping. It's labeled HT-822 (no brand name anywhere on the unit or the packaging). 1-inch circle at 8 inches. Seems to be pretty accurate for everything I have checked, from room-temperature door frames to my forehead to the stovepipe to the sides of the stove.
