When I first saw that I thought "They won't have 'em here, they never get any of the good stuff in".

PSP games? Nope.
Various console accessory packs? Nope.

However I have managed to pick up volume 1 (twas all I could afford, I was in town for an appointment that got called off last minute and didn't plan on shopping) and will get the other three on Monday! :D

And because I'm mad, 20p went on a teach yourself Esperanto book.

Picked up an original Amstrad 8000 amp today ,was the first item that Amstrad ever made,its a mk1 version too,ive got a mk2 ,but this one is immaculate almost as good as it left the factory.
Ive got a soft spot for Amstrad stuff having sold it in the 70s/80s myself.

A random NECA Terminator figure. Would I be right in assuming this is a T2 figure? It has bullet holes in the back of the jacket and 'Studio Canal' on the bottom of one foot which is why I think so.

I liked 'Barkers' Abarat books though I had to give up on the Books of Blood way to evil, as was Hell Raiser in some ways much eviler than the film.. I find Barkers kids book not quite so mental, so think I will enjoy the Thief of Always.. Remember Barker saying Horror shouldn't have a happy ending!!

From That's Entertainment:
-The IT Crowd Series 3
-The Fast Show Series 1-3
-Watchmen (2 disc version)
£12 for that lot.

From Poundland:
-Four DVDs of Rocko's Modern Life, six episodes on each one. Nice.
Our Poundland also had Rocko's Modern life as well as several Ahh Real Monsters and 'Hey Arnold' the kid with the head like a American football, I think they had Ren & Stimpy as well.. Was going to to pick you up the ahh real monsters, looked like your kind of things

Bought a good few gaming stuff and the following yesterday in Birmingham.
Note: I bought them for my partner, not me :-)

Hyper high heels x 4 from a cheap shoe shop
Hyper high heels x 2 from Anna Bee (in Oasis alternative cheap shop)

Each of the two from Anna Bee cost more than the 4 cheap ones put together! ouch!

Using some money on a GAME gift card, I caved in and bought Battleship on Blu Ray for a fiver new. It's a guilty pleasure of mine, even if it does have Rhianna in it (who I can't stand).
