    A life's purpose.

    Failing that, a new monitor.

    Re: QOTW: What are you hoping to get for Christmas?

    there was a bunch of really cheap nearly out of BBE date fruit/veg at Tesco last night.
    dad got 10 bags mixed carrot/peas for 5p for 500g and some sprouts all BBE 22nd dec.


    what I'm hoping to get is the bag of oranges for 10p but i'll probably end up with a bag of sprouts.


    btw. we've given up on proper Christmas and birthdays in our house. I am genuinely hoping for the oranges

    working all the way thru so you lot can have a nice xmas ..lol
    so not bothered ..
    but come jan/feb zen and vega will be coming to my house ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    having now reached the point in my life where socks and pants would be received gratefully, i tend to be given computer-orientated things.

    when i was younger (etc, etc) pants (grumble grumble) socks (bloody bloody) gizmos- nada.

    the inverse square law of presents.

    merry christmas.

    A working cooker - ours exploded this evening. Nowhere carries stock, not John Lewis, not CostCo, not Currys. It could be interesting catering for 7 people with only a microwave and a BBQ if I can't get one from a local independent retailer tomorrow.

    Try local charity furniture warehouses / shops, some around here have cookers, you might get lucky on them being open and having something.

    Maybe a Withings Avitvite/Kinetic type Watch.. although I've barely talked about so I doubt I'll get it.

    Re: QOTW: What are you hoping to get for Christmas?

    I'm at that point of my life where I don't wish for anything for Christmas ...apart from having a good time with my family.

    Stuff I want I usually buy myself when I find it at a good price.

    I'm hoping not to get Zika. Does that count?
