Upon his knee a pretty wench And on the table a jug of punch

12 May 2006

Yes, yes, everything has gone red. I can see that. But I did warn you earlier in the week[1] in 8 days we’ll be getting ready to see Munster play Biarritz in the European Final, so the blog is dressed up in support. I’m not too sure about the header though. That stag looks a bit yella doesn’t he? I may be too lazy to find a replacement though, we’ll see.

In other news, Amazon.co.uk have turned all mean. I’ve never really liked shopping there as we never get any postage discounts, but every now and then I’d be willing to fork out the extra dosh for something. Only now they’re starting to reduce what they’ll let us buy, as Michele Neylon points out Games, Electronics, and Gift items will no longer be shipped to the Republic. Which is odd, don’t you think. Still, I prefer Play anyway. They have free shipping and have a pretty good selection of stock. The discussion on Amazon can also be found on DOB-blog and Tuppenceworth, where the legal aspects are also being discussed[2]


  1. – I forgot to change on Wed? when I said I would
  2. – Well that sentence isn’t very clear now is it? the legal aspects have been raised on all the blogs, not just Tuppenceworth

    My eyes! They burn!

    That’s a lot of red. Really. I’m afraid I might catch Commie Fever… (in theory, it works)

    *Blink, blink*

    No, still hurts.


  2. anne says:

    Yeah, it does hurt a bit. Now we’re all hoping Biarritz don’t win this one, so that we haven’t suffered in vain…
    Oooooh. That was your plan all along, wasn’t it?

  3. Fence says:

    yeah, it is a tad over-red isn’t it? you should’ve seen it with the blue links. That was just plain evil. Hang on, I’ll go edit…

  4. anne says:

    Much better. My retinas are forever in your debt.

  5. Fence says:

    Yeah, I may still change the banner. We’ll see.

  6. NineMoons says:

    Aw, sweetheart, that’s much better! And I, the Despiser of Change, actually really like it like this. How unusual.

  7. Carl V. says:

    Kudos to you for support of your team! I can never find any fault in anyone’s devotion to sport…its all good!

  8. Kelly says:

    You KNOW all this rugby talk makes me see red… ;o) However, I’m not going to complain. Resistance is futile, anyoldway.

  9. Fence says:

    Is that your official title now NM?

    Carl, All good, all the time.

    Kelly, rugby rugby rugby rugby rugby rugby rugby rugby, what do mean you’re really seeing red?

  10. Kelly says:

    You're such a brat.

    I was placing an order with Amazon the other day – thought I qualified for the free postage but apparently, two of my items didn't as they were supplied by Amazon-Jersey. When I removed the offending items, my order wasn't enough for the free postage…doh! I'll have to find something else…

  13. Fence says:

    Well at least that means you get to order differenet things. We never got free postage from Amazon.

  14. NineMoons says:

    I did when I lived in Scotland. It was great! Except it made me buy things that I couldn't afford. With a credit card I couldn't pay off. Boots online were the same. Oooh, just buy one or two more things and we'll give you free chocolates AND we won't make you pay postage. Go on, just another tenner. Sterling. That you don't have. Argh.

  15. Fence says:

    yeah but, when you lived in Scotland you wasn't one of us was you?

  16. NineMoons says:

    I was more of Ireland in Scotland than at any other time of my life.

  17. Fence says:

    One of us people living in Ireland.

  18. NineMoons says:

    I was LIVING here. I was just commuting and staying over in Scotland a lot…

    Fine so, you weren't one of us that did NOT have a postal address in the UK. Kay
