So I bought my shiny shiny Nintendo DS Lite last night. And got a great deal from Argos. €149 for the console, a game[1] and an accessory pack. So basically I paid for the console and got the rest of the stuff for free. I also bought one of those Brain Training thingies. Which was supposed to cost 30 quid,

I’ve been out. Doing things. You know, that I shouldn’t be, *glances warily around* going places I shouldn’t. Yup. Shopping again. It’s shocking[1] how easy it is to spend money when you don’t have to hand over any actual cash. Just flash the plastic and away you go[2] Crazy easy it is. And not only am I going to moan

My poppets arrived yesterday. Today they went exploring and bumped into a spaceship[1] They also thought about moving into Minas Tirith, but they are just too big: Linknotes: – Yes, flare added, cause Serenity likes her flares. ↩

How did this happen? Feb is over already. I know it is a short month, but my god! this short? Time is flying, sign of age no doubt. Didn’t get my shopping done on Sat, I’d forgotten that it was to be a day of rugby see. Suppose I could’ve gone out on Sunday, but, you know, didn’t. So had

Remember my last T13, where I listed stuff that I wanted. Well, there was a reason I didn’t mention a camera, as I had just gone and ordered one. A Fuji Finepix S5600 to be precise. And it arrived yesterday afternoon, but I didn’t get a chance to use it till today at lunch. And can I just say, bloody

First of all I’d like to join with Carl and say “I’m a bookaholic.” It was only last week that I’d never been in the brand spanking new Chapters[1] shop on Parnell st., but once I’d been I just kept returning. Picking more books that I know I never really intended to buy. I just kept picking them up going,

I officially hate everyone! Okay, so I’m not at the “lip curling, teeth bared” stage quite yet, but the stabbing people in their soft underbellies with pens[1] sounds about right. It isn’t really that they’ve done anything specifically to annoy me, but somehow everything they do is annoying me. What with their walking and their talking. What is that all

Feels like its been ages since I wrote anything for this thingymeblog. And this isn’t much of an entry either, just a quick note to say that I’m off home tomorrow, not sure when I’ll be online after Christmas, d’internet is far to slow in Sligo to make it likely that I’ll be posting from there. So while I’m gone

So on Sat I headed off and bought myself a paid of MBTs. Physiological footwear.[1] What could be cooler? Or more ugly? For those not in the know MBTs are Masai Barefoot Technology shoes designed to help posture and tone muscles and even lose weight.
