After admiring a bronze goose statue in the British Museum today, I chanced upon a quantity of discounted Granny Smith apples in the nearby miniature Morrisons. At sixty-nine pence, a full twenty-one pence less than the cheapest of multipacks Tesco offer, I considered the acquisition a conquest of sorts.
I went all the way to Edinburgh with the intention of buying "something" and over the course of four days, all I came away with was a second hand copy of "Wuthering Heights". Admittedly, it looks rather fine for a second hand copy, all the pages are a nice creamy white and it has a nice thick cover too.
Eh well, at least the set of records I ordered; by Boards of Canada, arrived while I was away.
Bought new PC, looks like GLaDOS x Sloth from Goonies
I bought the myriad pieces of the technological jigsaw that is to be my household's new gaming PC. I shamelessly went over budget by only 38%, thanks to my extraordinary restraint when faced with things I want to buy, and a credit card balance of zero to play with. :>
Due to First Great Western doing what First Great Western do best and run late, I had just under an hour to kill this afternoon in Basingjoke, so I had a walk to the british heart foundation shop (along with other shops) and I think I got lucky, £1.75 each:
I had a £25 love2shop voucher from a survey site so I got a few new titles in Waterstones, the Deus Vitae was another 3-titles from the BHF shop, and the Megatokyo was a purchase from oxfam overpriced music in Reading
And some DVDs from CEX (Princess & K-On), Karas from BHF again, even if it's rubbish it was only 99p
Have also ordered K-On Series 2 Part 1 from amazon, plus the blu-ray of the movie, making use of my 5% student discount for new stuff on Amazon
