oh bloody hell

They've gone and put a new feature into the permanent accouts. 100 user pictures. No, Jeremy. Remember how moving house has left you with no money and the need to buy sealant, drill-bits and an energy-efficient fridge?

I want one too. And only because I don't need one at all. And I only have UNO userpic anyway.

nothing is as much fun
as something you don't need in the slightest.

Re: nothing is as much fun
Dude, that's all I ever spend my money on, but it's too late now, thankfully, for the permaccounts.

yay for procrastination. Some problems do just go away if you ignore them.

Paid accounts will be getting that feature eventually, I believe.
8th Jun, 2005 09:32 (UTC)
thanks for
giving me a good reason to hold back.

Totally go for it; will exonerate me for thinking of paying the same for a bag (isn't that just the best reason you've heard all day?).

you're sweet
but you need to economise on the accessories ...
7th Jun, 2005 17:07 (UTC)
Don't do it! Then I won't feel alone for not buying something I don't need with money I don't have!

pleased to report I resisted
though that may have had something to do with having no bloody internet access at the time, of course.

ner ner ne ner ner... ;-)

...and what makes it worse is that I don't have that many anyway, and quite often don't use one at all. ;-)

I should make you a few more. I've got some photos, and at least one cartoon. No, don't worry -- no internet access. At least not anywhere the art is.

Well, I'm a sucker - I bought one today. I guess I figured I'd be economising in the long term, assuming it genuinely _is_ permanent. And very soon I'll have no money for anything but sealant and drill bits and so on. Oh, and lessons on how to use sealants and drill bits.

Damian's mum sent us a housewarming present
called the Enormous Book of every DIY problem ever, or something. You could flatten a cat with it. But it does seem to be quite comprehensive.

Unfortunately, I'm much more inclined to drink gin, attempt to grow bright blue poppies and find new places for my plastic dinosaurs to hang out.

Gods, I'm rubbish ...

I too am resisting the lure of the shiny permanent account in favour of saving my money for sensible grown-up household things...
8th Jun, 2005 09:26 (UTC)
depressing, isn't it? I looked at my bank account yesterday, and thought, feck, where's all my money gone? ... unfortunately the answer seems to be mostly to B&Q, Sainsbury's Homebase and Comet.

Look at the lovely fridges Jeremy, see how they glow.
Do not, however, look at the 900 quid pink Smegs - this would not be a helpful reaction to your situation, besides being a terrible design cliche.

a light in my fridge would be nice
I mean, how old does a fridge have to be to have no light? I'm probably after a super-energy-efficient Bosch, actually, as I'm sufficiently old-school to think white goods should be white ...
8th Jun, 2005 16:47 (UTC)
white goods should be white
... so that they have a nice neutral background for whatever you decide to paint on them?
9th Jun, 2005 09:21 (UTC)
mostly because
it sets off the fridgemagnets a treat
9th Jun, 2005 09:24 (UTC)
and there's a photo illustrating this very point here.
