It in a fit of minor extravagance I bought a new 22" portable flat screen, HD, freeview DVD TV at the weekend. As wild-seven found with hers, the dodgy 4th disc of the complete A Bit of Fry and Laurie plays perfectly on it.

And on my new wages I'll have paid off two maxed-out overdrafts and two credit card bills by the end of the year.

Hurrah! Now you can indulge in fresh, buttery Fry and Laurie goodness!

Then in 2011 you can max them out all over again as you are consumed by your Blu-ray porn addiction.

Only Chinese people make real Chinese food ;)

Only chinese people make MSG loaded rubbish that they call Chinese food or at least some of them do.

I dont really eat or cook that much of it myself because i always feel hungry an hour after eating it.

Reminded me that i finally pay off my huge 3 year loan, that expanded to 9, at the end of March.

Back to exactly zero on all fronts for the first time since Uni.

Huzzah!

I found 50p in the pocket of my jeans this evening.

Small but worth a smile.

Oh I love it when that happens. I recently dug out a suit I hadn't worn in about five years (don't like suits and only wear them when I absolutely have to, for 'occassions') and I found 20 quid in the pocket! I did a little happy dance. I think I'm going to start deliberately stashing money in clothes I know I won't wear for a while just to re-experience that joy when I do pull them out again and find it!! ;)

50ps are a good solid comforting find. Beyond them, lower denominations can take a bit more work to enthuse over. Look after the pennies, etc.

There was something nice and reassuring about the 50p....

One gentleman of my acquaintance has what he calls his "magic jeans" which routinely turn out tenners and even twenties. Usually the morning after going to the pub. Which suggests he's not buying enough beer.

...Mad Men is on tonight - a programme with more subtext than a library on a U Boat. And saucy ladies. Don't forget the saucy ladies.

I lost my wallet this morning. As I don't have a job at the moment, it contained all my money - £50 - which has to last me until next Friday. I was properly annoyed with myself.

Just after noon, some young fellow I've never met before rang my bell and returned the wallet, contents intact, to me. I tried to give him a fiver for his trouble but he refused it.

It's not a bad old world we live in really, is it?

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I handed a wallet in at the local police station and they suggested that I could leave my name as the owner might want to give a reward. I didn't as there was no cash in the wallet and I didn't want to be accused of nicking any if there was some in there. Police told me it is pleasantly surprising how many valuable items are regularly handed in to them.

I was on holiday once in Holland and I lost my address book (pre-mobile phone era). I feared my one week holiday was to be wasted as I wouldn't have been able to contact friends I planned on visiting. I retraced my steps round shops trying to find it with no luck. When I got back to the flat of the mate I was staying with, the address book was in his postbox. So some helpful person found it, went through the addresses and found the most local address. Very kind of them.

I have a pair of magic jeans with the exact opposite power.  I wake up sure that there should still be a twenty in there and there's only a handful of coins and crumpled receipts.

Now that I think of it, most of my jeans seem to have this power.

Your friend and I must never meet, for our trews would surely annihilate themselves in a magic/anti-magic explosion.
