£26 Shopping Spree

WOW, this morning I went wild in the pound shop courtesy of my friend Pinky's debit card (she was with me debiting it; I didn't steal it!) I bought 3 random DVDs, a CD radio play of Little Britain, four greetings cards and about fifty rollerballs and gel ink pens in various varieties then we went to some sportswear shop where she told me I desperately need new jogging bottoms as the old red ones with permanent fag ash stains and burn holes make me look "worse than a homeless schizophrenic" (I am paraphrasing her words) so £9.99 ($16.02) got me new ones with white lines down the legs but they aren't Adidas. And I also paid £5 ($8.02) for a red teeshirt which is very unlike me. Ordinarily I am totally averse to buying any item of clothing costing over £3 ($4.81). And then we went into Argos, the shop that sells everything where I fell in love with a £45 ($72.17) 14 megapixel stills 5x optical zoom 720 pixel video all in one camera by Fuji in blue but that has to wait.

Wow, I haven't gone on a shopping spree in ages, even if it is only a £26 ($41.61) miniature one. And yes it probably had something to do with me not sleeping well at all last night ~ waking up countless times every hour ~ then being hyper and loud all morning. For some reason I ran round Pinky's house asking everyone whether they watched Downton Abbey. But they're all mental there anyhow so nobody cared. Then I wanted to take a snapshot of the chief care coordinator of Pinky's sheltered housing and she kept saying no and why am I so obsessed with Tamara the chief care cooridinator... oh blah blah. O well I have to run. I have an appointment with Destiny!

Take care everyone. Good day sunshine!... yeah!!!

Illustrated: a blue Fujifilm 14 megapixel camera a bit like the one I want...

PS: I don't know why the Downton obsession, except that Lady Sybil (illustrated below with the chauffeur she married) died last night giving birth to their first child and it was terribly sad...

Sounds like a very enjoyable spending spree!

O aye it was. And I really enjoyed calculating the bizarre dollar amounts. No I WILL NOT go over $4.81 for a garment. Not one red cent over!!!

I really can't wait to get that £45/$71 camera. It's really motivating me to kick the drugs and take pictures instead!

Ciao Gledwood, long time no see!
I was just revisiting some of my past blogs, to see if I could recover some pieces of poetry I needed... and I found your nice comments dating back 4-5 years.

You feeling better now? Sei simpatico, restiamo in contatto -- perhaps we should start our conversations again...

Be well

Well you certainly got a lot for your money! :)

~Daubmir: o yeah I'm way better than I was. Some days now I take showers and everything!!!!!!!

STILL drugs are an issue. But I'm not taking them just about every single day like I used to. So that's a good thing!!

Akelamalu: some of the pens were terrible but I got some very nice socks (3 for a pound. Pairs that is, not three socks)... o most of the films were terrible except Donnie Darko. And I got this weird Coronation Street spinoff thing which is too bizarre EVEN FOR ME to indulge in. I did watch 12 whole minutes and Rosie Webster is the face of Slut Beer. O no I'm sorry ~ Strumpet Beer. But she's too stupid to twig what a strumpet actually IS...

Gledwood said...

AKE: it's a Coronation Street Special DVD


called A KNIGHT'S TALE. Watch it if you're seriously bored or accidentally eat funny mushrooms in the garden (hey it's bang-on time for a crop, after the first Autumn rains...)

... and it's STRUMPET ALE. Not beer... dunt that mek a difference oop North..? Aye?
