Shopping list

January 8th, 2009

Today I need to buy a number of items. I will list these items here and tell you how I progress through the purchasing stage and whether I am unable to source any of these articles.

  1. A diary. This is required so that I can ensconce within it the dates and times on which working is necessitated by my employers and overlords, and also the dates and times on which I am due to socialise with other humans in a non-workplace context.
  2. A VGA cable. This handsome combination of wires, plastic sheaths and precision-moulded terminal plug fixtures will permit the connection of a laptop video output to a television video input channel, permitting the screening of internet videos on a TV screen that could justifiably be described as “mackin'”.
  3. A book. The book I select will be carefully chosen to permit the optimum enwritement of random tat and the endrawage of senseless doodlings. It is of great importance that it has nice clean white pages, unless I find another style of page which sweeps me up in its strong arms and causes me to take leave of my senses.
  4. Jeans. I don’t think I have any chance of getting these in my lunch break but I need some so I’m putting it in the list anyway. They are designed to keep my legs warm and out of sight in a range of social situations, from the workplace to home-bound slobbing.

This completes my list of items to purchase with funds in my bank account. Good day.

    Ensconce this, b*tch!

    I wouldn’t bother getting any of them. What’s wrong with a napkin and a couple of lollysticks? They were all you needed in ma day.

    I got a BOOK and a DIARY.

    I didn’t got nothing else.

    The BOOK already contains one (1) page of writing and one (1) page of drawings. I will now pass on the book to another one (1) of you.

  • 3. Ian Mac Mac Mac Mac McIver  |  January 12th, 2009 at 09:41

    Another one (1) of us will be glad to receive it (it). It will help to take my mind (mind) off the situation up (up) here. What I mean by (by) is the work situation (situation) more than anything else…


    I think I’ve got the hang of this bracket thing.

    What sort of vga cable do you need? just a standard vga male to vga male one?

    (Just ignore that Ian it wont mean anything to you…. It never happened… fade to black)

    Fade to Black is a video game released in 1995 by Delphine Software International. It is the sequel to their second previous game Flashback, the first being the ill-fated Shaq-Fu.

    The game was released for PC and PlayStation. The PlayStation version was also released as a download for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable in Europe on January 31, 2008. It was also to be released on the Nintendo 64 (Ultra 64 at the time) and Sega Saturn.

    Yes Ian

    *ignores last 2 comments*

    I do just need a normal VGA cable, but preferably a very long one, maybe 4 metres.

  • 8. Chris  |  January 14th, 2009 at 13:34

    Also, yesterday, I bought two (2) pairs of jeans. This means there is now only one (1) item on the list that I still need to go out for (4).

  • 9. Ian Mac Mac Mac Mac McIver  |  January 14th, 2009 at 13:35

    Woozel Wuzzle?

    Ah right, so you weren’t making reference to the sequel to Flashback then? Never mind. Gosh, tch, dear me etc.

    All this talk of cables if making me hungry.

  • 10. Kevil  |  January 20th, 2009 at 13:24

    i dont have one that long. So you will have to part with cold hard/flimsy cash for one.

  • 11. Chris  |  January 21st, 2009 at 21:57

    Part with my flimsy spondulicks I will. Good day to you sir.

    (Actually a shorter one will probably do just fine.)

    Look at him grasping for freebies like a floozy. You don’t get nothing for free these days dearie, not even Chuck Yeager.

  • 13. Chris  |  January 24th, 2009 at 11:27

    Free baby free woo yeah!

    That was my tender lovesong about free things. You have to imagine it sung real slow with an acoustic guitar accompaniment.

    I did and I do and I can and it’s the best.

    10 grand.
