Productive window-shopping.

Took back the Lexmark X1150 and got my refund. I walked to PC World to see which other machines were available. On the way there I passed by Morrisons and made a few snacky acquisitions.

Whenever I walk by a supermarket and have some spare time, I pop in to see what random snacks they have that other supermarkets don't. They sold very nice pontefract cakes and some cheap-looking crisps which taste absolutely divine. I began to snack on a packet of these crisps on the way to PC World, but as soon as I tasted them, I turned round and went back to the supermarket to buy more of them. You can order the crisps from their website if you're curious of their godliness and have £12 spare (I heartily recommend the Canadian Ham and Beefy flavours).

When I got to PC World, laden with crisps, I went towards the scanners section, especially interested in this model which I'd heard a lot of praise for. I'd not put 2 and 2 together and never considered Canon would make an all-in-one printer. However, I finally saw the Canon MP360 there, and I'm pretty certain I'll order that around my birthday, or when the current printer runs out of ink.

I've managed to complete two games during this rest period, finally completing Mario & Luigi (which I adored from start to finish) and Soul Calibur 2 has been effectively completed, with me acquiring the bonus characters and the majority of the weapons to obtain. I may sell that game on as a part-exchange doodah when Puyo Puyo Fever hits the shelves over here.

Alas, one thing that irks me, is that it seems every plan to meet nice people wants to happen on a Saturday - next weekend I could potentially meet radiodave and sachkii (see, you did get mentioned) - but I have a cunning plan or two up my sleeve if it comes to it.

I threw a lot of links into this post, didn't I?
