A little of column A, a little of row 1.

WHAT TO BUY THIS MONTH:

In terms of buying things, I have to look towards second-hand phones. eBay might be a place to look, lest I'll try Virgin Megastores. But I'm having to look for something after Jamie dropped her phone into Harry's water bowl, causing it to instantly give up on life. But for something more interesting to buy, have a look at these 'Eye Spy Glasses'. Completely novel - and most probably completely impractical - but a conversation-starter at least, I'd imagine.

As an aside, I'm noticing from how much the character is being pushed into games here... Donkey Kong sure isn't a memorable character. It's the game with the bongos, if anyone ever asks about Donkey Konga or Jungle Beat in the shop. It's the platformer on the GBA for Mario vs Donkey Kong. It's the stupid slow monkey with the bad theme tune when someone picks him in Smash Brothers Melee. He's the most successful unmemorable character there is in the UK, I suppose. Jamie says that it's due to "...him being such an ass from Mario Kart," he's instantly unlikable.

BREAKING NEWS: AMERICAN INVASION CONTINUES.

In under two days' time, meitantei_cj arrives for a week. London's a place she's always wanted to visit and we've tried to arrange to meet a few times, so it's good that it'll finally happen. It'll be a nice adventure to go travelling around, and there's also goodies coming this way - Jamie's excited at the prospect of more Mountain Dew. I must admit, we've been cheeky in little bits and bobs we've asked if she can pick up - but I suppose we'll be filling her suitcase full of British junk for the way back, so having items in the suitcase you know aren't coming back isn't a bad thing, necessarily.

Tony is taking all week off so during CJ's impending visit he'll be wandering around with us also. It should be a nice time with four people traipsing around London et al instead of the usual two - I expect the week to go well.

Meanwhile, here's AN AMUSING JOKE TO DO WITH THE WORKPLACE!

When is a collection of rare Saturn games worth a few hundred pounds, not a collection of rare Saturn games?
When you let a co-worker who 'didn't know any better' sell them off for £40 the lot!

Oh ho ho. Hilarity ensued, I can assure you. Aforementioned co-worker was feeling quite proud with their work on the day too, given that he'd managed to alphabetise something he usually couldn't. Good job, kid!

Work is going back to the fun chaotic style it used to be, with everyone a little miffed at something one way or another. It's kind of calming to see people around you getting stroppy one way or another. Cleansing to understand people's gripes, but not care enough in the job myself to feel them myself. ahem.

HERE IS A NICE PICTURE THAT WOULD BE GOOD ON A POSTCARD.
