Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

I didn't know whether to spit or swear!

I went back to the department store today where I saw the computer I wanted at the best price. Before going in, I went to a bookstore and got a couple of books on Windows Vista. Then off I went to choose a new printer and buy the computer.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE MY ONE IN STOCK EVEN IN THE WAREHOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could order it - when the warehouse got them back in, but not today, and it would be a week to 10 days at least.

So I went to Currys.Digital - part of the same group as PC World, for my non-UK readers, the people who tried to screw me over price and quality yesterday. They had the lower spec machine at the higher price, too, and would only take off £50. Plus they'd have to order it, too. What is more, the printer I'd selected was £40 more than in the department store.

So I bought the printer in the department store, and then zoomed off to another branch of PC World to try my luck at barter with a different manager.

Success - but in an unexpected way. They wouldn't reduce the lower spec model but found the better one - the one that I really wanted - in their business catalogue. So I became a business (they are usually quite good about teachers getting things at competitive prices in their stores). They still have to order it in, but reckon only a couple of days.

Now all I have to worry about is that when they asked for a company name, I gave them the name of my teaching agency. I actually have a company name from a tax-saving wheeze a couple of the teaching agencies use, but I didn't think of using it.

Should I tell the agency, or hope they never find out? To be fair, if I'd been employed by a school, I could have used their name legitimately, so I suppose it's all right. If not - next post will be from jail...

Albatross - Safe Landing

Could he get more handsome?

By the way, while watching In The Dark last night, I noticed that at one point he did the sideways mouth movement once - he didn't appear to chew, but it was pretty much the same move. Don't know how I missed that before.

Snippets


In case anyone is interested, there is another Black T-Shirt Of Hotness on sale on ebay. I always thought there was more than one. The price is already quite high, and there are less than 2 days left. Take a look here:

I went on another new laptop search/shopping expedition today. I started at the Apple shop, but failed to be convinced. So I went to John Lewis (a department store) and found a rather splendid Hewlett Packard with webcam, HD and Windows Vista. The salesman was not keen on Vista, says it has lots of bugs, and he had to call over someone else to find how to access the webcam. It had taken this bloke half an hour to locate it. I'd forgotten to bring one of my homemade LOCI DVDs, so I coudn't even find out if the machine would play it.

I decided to go home and get a DVD, then go to my local PC World. They had an apparently identical machine £200 dearer. They don't do exactly the same model. But it was actually a slightly lower spec. But it did play my DVD. So I asked for a deal, to save going back to the other shop (a 34-mile round-trip) and to take advantage of the post-puchase service of the specialist store. £20 off a printer. Whoopee!

So now I have to go back to the other store and buy the one I first thought of!

Albatross - Mid Flight

Sweet, soft curls, and a lot of cheek-chewing.

So handsome - and just look at those lashes!

Yum!

Albatross - 1st Flight

Just a brief taste of what my capping finger can achieve in 10 minutes. Thanks to Eliza for providing me with the raw material faster than is humanly possible, thus proving conclusively that she is a goddess of V-Love.

Smothered - 2nd Gasp

Those jeans are just not tight enough!

Well we all know about the Black T-Shirt Of Blackness.

We also know what a big strong boy he is.

Smothered - First Gasp

There's an awful lot of shirt-sleeve in this episode, with a corresponding wealth of beshirted shoulder.

Clever Bobby and the barfly. "Enjoy your evening".

As it's not possible for people to save pictures that are in slideshows, please feel free to visit my Photobucket album at http://s86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/valw1953/ and help yourselves. I imagine you can send them to yourselves by clicking on the "share" button, but I've never tried it myself, so if it doesn't work, let me know on this blog, and I'll put my email address back into my profile again. Then you can send me your email address and I'll send the ones you choose to you.

Please be aware, though, that I started the album before I could cap, so some are not my own. "My Guy", "Good Luck" and "Claire Dolan" are mine, as are most of the LOCI Seasons 1-3.

Enjoy!
