Places where you can get anything for a pound or less. Only thing better than those are 99 pence stores.
We have those things here too. They're called Value shops or whatever...or like, $2 shop. Obviously I don't go to those places.
Can get those in poundstores, especially poundland (+1 for making myself sound extremely cheap), or for better quality look up a shop called Wilkinsons. They also sell lawnmowers.. never know when you get the itch to bankrupt yourself to mow the carpet in your new apartment
Your being 'extremely cheap' is very helpful to me.
Yes, I will buy myself a lawnmower when I wake up with the urge to mow the carpet in my apartment, which is totally normal.
Well, I am sure you have enough dough stashed away under your bed- that will come in handy now
But, on a serious note, it's a very good decision-you'll have a lot of fun and learn a lot
Yeah, the copyright restrictions on the Olympics events make me
too. What was the official channel showing all the events in Singapore ? (in the US, it's NBC which controls all the rights- and nothing seems to be available on youtube).
A good, expensive decision.
Have you been to London before?
The free-to-air channels were the local channels, but I watched the cable channels which was ESPN. I heard a lot of bad things about NBC's coverage.
Like showing events on tape delay and things like that.
On the topic of philosophy, given that the current (R) candidates here seem to be heavily influenced by Randian philosophy- here is a snippet of an interview with her in 1959. Very fascinating- though I find the tenets of her philosophy quite appalling (there is some truth to some aspects of it though).
I refuse to read her novels. I can't remember why. I think it was because my Literature teacher whom I greatly respected called her didactic and overly cerebral.
What aspects of her philosophy did you find appalling? I'm too lazy to watch the video.
I'm watching TDKR for the 4th time tomorrow and 2nd time on IMAX.
