It’s only money


Whitecap: It looks more dramatic on screen, honestly

You can buy stuff with only about 3 clicks now, if you include ‘are you sure you want to buy this?‘ confirmation buttons, and it is so easy to spend stupid money – I almost bought a load of blank mini-CDRs, for no really good reason, it was a close thing. The only thing that stopped me was the courier delivery – there’s never anyone in to sign for it.

On the plus side, I now have 20 DVDs of Battlestar Galactica to watch – hooray! I also have 2 CDs on the Earth Monkey label which come on mini-CDs in a limited edition (that seems to be the latest thing with micro-labels, might write something about that) and with free limited edition badges.

Yesterday I spent about £20 on a fancy screensaver/music visualiser, for no better reason that I always wanted a really good one and this seems to fit the bill. It’s only money, after all.


Beer? I’ve got some just here…


My mini-fridge

Look what I’ve been given – yes, a beer fridge! Well, I suppose it could be a camping fridge, but I’m not going camping, am I? This is going to be very handy for the next few weeks as I’ve got a four-season box-set of Battlestar Galactica (the new one obviously) arriving – hopefully – tomorrow, and it’s always nice to have a few cold tins to hand when you’ve got 20 DVDs of robots shooting things to watch.

This might possibly give you the impression that I’m incredibly lazy; it’s not lazyness, more a DVD-induced inertia or possibly some kind of hypnosis. And let’s face it, enough time is wasted with trips to the toilet without wasting even more time going up/down stairs for fresh tins.
