*whistfully* .....Ah the 1970's where did they go eh ?

http://www.Play.com have had their spring sale on. Very frustrating as there's a number of things that I'd love to pick up right now but I have tried my best to reign in my urge to spurge.

However a have permitted my self to buy a few really really low priced items.

In recent days the following have arrived:

1)Yann Tiersen's score to the magnificent film Amelie by Jean Pierre Jeunet
2)Sunshine by Danny Boyle
3) Harry Potter and the order of the Pheonix
4) City of the Lost Children aslso by by Jean Pierre Jeunet (i can replace my worn out video tape!)
5)Dark City
6)Spiderman 3

At £4.99 and £5.99 I think I can be forgiven for picking these up as these were real bargains and I am thrilled to have the City of Lost Chiildren on DVD at long last !

I would like to have bought the Boxed sets of Star Trek trhe Next Geberation £15 each, The Bourne Ultimatum £6.99, A 1/1 Scale Stormtrooper helemet taken from original moulds £59 (recently gone up from 49 !!!!grrrr) and quite a lot of CDs (I can listen to them now my new car has a CD player!!!) including quite a few REM albums (£4.99), and odds and sods......

Se I showed restraint !


...sort of.

I had a bright green Parakeet (with a red bill) pearched at the bottom of my garden this morning, I'm not a huge fan of 'em myself and think they should all be shot as they are having a dramatic impact on indigeonous species....However I managed to get a pic with my dgi cam this morning and will post it as soon as I can.

In the meantime here's all you ever wanted to know about the critters.

Man seeks drinking pal for father

Mark my words, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/hampshire/7328410.stm this story is going to end in tears as effectively you can't exclude 'women' for applying for the job of drinking companion for his father as it contravenes sexual descrimination law.


Some bright spark is going to pick up on this ans cause (in the words of Robocop) Trouble....

Awwwwww
