Well I felt the need to buy a new camera. This one came all the way from hong kong…mostly for cheapness reasons. The Instax mini 7 is at it says an instant camera however the polaroids it uses are tiny. Ah the novelty…credit card sized to be exact. The camera arrived last week but didn’t include any film…so I had to wait while film was delivered from hong kong…another week! Don’t worry I’ve ordered some more…ace fun.
Bought some artwork by ken taylor…his artwork is awesome…go look. I thought I’d go with this one…A gig poster for Sigur ros. I’m not the biggest Sigur ros fan to be honest…some of it is a bit slow and whale music like…but I see why people like it…My attention span is too short. But the poster itself is awesome. Decided I would get it framed…framing stuff…who knew…damn it’s expensive. Â£75 for just a bit longer than A3 size. Ah well my first bit of artwork…framed signed limited to 500…woohoo.
My xbox 360 had a big chunky update last night. Microsoft bit slow on the wii mii updates. They are good though…plenty of options. The wii options are much better you can move features around and scale them and stuff. But finally they have made it that you can make your own avatar by taking a wee picture. I like it. A nice addition.
And there’s another weekend gone. This weekend seen a special guest. Cathy of team france was out to play in Glasgow. Great fun. Round at maccas for cheap Cider and banter followed by dancing at the buff club (Â£3 entry…woohoo) where we were forced to drink slightly more expensive cider. Great dancing. Had planned on going home but was enticed back to maccas by the promise of meat. More dancing to be had, roughly 5 am in maccas bathroom. Great weekend…shattered now
Just finished another spool for my holga and got it back today. Think I’m getting to grips with it…Didn’t waste many on this spool…good job too. I ordered the wrong size and ended up getting 6×6 prints, instead of 5×5…doh! Anyway they’re all up on flickr…I’ve just loaded my holga up with Black & White film….should be fun.
It was only a matter of time before I got round to boots. I think I lived off these right through to christmas last year. Boots meal deals…we all know they’re amazing. I was a bit disappointed to discover I couldn’t christmas up my snack or juice included in the meal deal.
Turkey, bacon, pork, sage and onion stuffing, lettuce? (two different kinds?) and cranberry sauce
Best yet…much nicer than pret. Had a nice peppery after taste…tick. And if I remove the savings from said meal deal the sandwich would have cost Â£1.07. I’ll give it 8 of of 10…if it had gravy…would have been a 10 easy…actually i’ll give it an 8.5 just because it was served by a happy austarlian man.
They’re everywhere…I can’t keep up! Today I went Pret…safe!. They had a few christmas sandwiches…a range some might say…including a veggie christmas sandwich…they’re nutters at pret. I had to go classic…
Ingredients: british turkey (very specific), cranberry sauce, stuffing, mayo and lettuce?
Dunno why they put lettuce in it…who has lettuce with their christmas dinner…madness. Also They give 10p to their own homeless charity…sounds a bit suspect to me. So i’ll give this a 7 out of 10 just cause it was a bit pricier but but did actually put some money towards charity.
