I Bought Something

After watching Prisoner Queen the other month, I started thinking about maybe perhaps watching Prisoner: Cell Block H again.

In like, 20 years or so. When I’m feeling poorly. And I’ve gotten old timers’ disease.

So I started idly looking for it… Didn’t seem to be any active torrents going for the whole series… And then I googled for DVD sets…

*gasp*

Epic unboxing sequence:

Yes! It’s a suitcase! Metal-ish! (I think it’s mostly plastic with metal detailing.) With 174 DVDs inside! Of an Australian soap opera from the 80s!

It’s the stupidest thing I’ve bought in my entire life.

But on the other hand: In 1995 I thought that, surely, all films ever would be available for streaming from the interwebs by 2016. This hasn’t happened. So perhaps it would be completely impossible to get hold of this series in 2037, when I plan on watching this series again?

You never know! I’m safe! Hah!

My New Furniture Blog

It’s some sort of christian holiday here this long weekend (Presumption?  Assumption?), and it’s kinda almost spring-like, so I’ve been getting the balcony into shape.  Which inevitably means that I ended up at the garden center.  This time to buy a new chair-ey/table-ish thing.  I just had to buy this one:

It’s so nautical.  Which is perfect for Norway this spring.  Rain, rain, rain.

I got a space age butter knife the other month. It was Kickstartered. (That’s a word.)

So let’s test it!  I got some butter cold from the fridge…

Eww!  So uneven!  That’s not kawaii at all!  So let’s try the butterup knife…

It makes the butter pop through those holes in the knife like…  Squeezing pimples?  No!  Like earth worms squirming up through metal?  No!!!  I know!

Like…  spaghetti.

That’s the ticket.

Oh, well.
