Found a copy of 'The Death of Superman' for only £2.99 at Forbidden Planet. I hadn't read it in years, so I've been having all sorts of strange flashbacks of being ten years old. Good and bad so I guess that's something

I just found a copy of the first Dream Academy lp for £1 in the local charity shop.
Now, there's a mixed blessing! Was it better than finding a copy of the 7" single 'Life in a Northern Town' for 40p?
STRIKE !!!

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is on at the MK Cineworld. Suppose I might go.

recent layoffs at my employment have enlarged my job scope,which makes my post less likely to be considered for cutting.
so life is ok for me right now,
extra responsibility i can do, no problem, less worried about job makes it an ok.  so yeh life is ok today.
I AM VERY BUSY!

The student I least expected it from finally produced a decent essay for his GCSE coursework this week after 7 months. I thought Hell was going to freeze over first!

i went to the opening of an architectural salvage yard selling reclaimed building materials just along the road.There was a marquee and drinks were available but not free unfortunately.

Its the first of its kind in the UK and it is a recycling/enviromental initiative.

All was not lost though as there were plenty of nibbles.........

I'm keeping my job. My name was not on the shortlist of four from which two will be chosen next week to be made redundant.
Couldn't quite bring myself to post this on the Drokkin Fantastic thread as three of those named are friends - one of whom has two teenage daughters and a wife recovering from major brain surgery (true) - so I almost feel guilty to be feeling relieved.

the whole redundency thing is a
shared experience sadly here on the board,
due to recent times to many of us are finding ourselves in this position.

this is the correct place to post it, as you say.

I just spent a pleasant hour at ASDA. It's sad to be so pleased by something so commonplace, I know. But I don't own a car, and a trip to ASDA on foot takes up quite a chunk of an afternoon. Anyway, they had everything I wanted, unlike my poorly-stocked local Tesco, and the customer service was excellent (also unlike my poorly-stocked local Tesco). I got a refund for some really disgusting own-brand chocolate spread and a double refund for some really disgusting own-brand low-fat peanut butter because it was on a special trial (give that one a miss: three times as much sugar as in regular peanut butter, and you can certainly taste it!). A fortuitous twist was that the refund money gave me a pound to put in the trolley before I started shopping. I'd neglected to bring any change with me because I always forget they keep their trolleys chained up.
STRIKE !!!

I feel like I'm on a roll now: I just found Series 1 and 2 of Spaced for a pound each in the Heart Foundation shop.
 :D - all videos £1 each.
STRIKE !!!

I was taking last week's papers out to the big blue recycle bin earlier and somebody had left a 1973 Pirelli calendar sitting on top of it. My Antiques Roadshow dreams of vasty riches were soon set straight by a visit to eBay and I'm left with what is effectively upper class hedge porn.

If I was the type of person who brings things he finds in the bins back into the house.

I do sometimes but it depends what it is.I took home a working digital radio from the tip and in the last 2 weeks i have bought home an abandoned Land Rover mountain bike plus an arabic knotted rug that just needed cleaning that was found amongst rubbish.
