Clothes iron...'Digital'...Does not compute.

What the hell does that thing do, anyway? In addition to getting the creases out of your clothes, does it do your taxes and fly the space shuttle as well? That is one seriously tricked-out beast.
I'd only like it to plug itself in and get to work! Most of the new ones are digital. Since the last time I saw a new iron must have been 20 years ago, I was caught by surprise myself. The new ones do feel flimsy and plastic-y compared to the older types though. Nothing special really:
  • 2400 watts.
  • Steam output 40g/min.
  • Shot of steam 100g/min.
  • Capacity of water tank 250ml.
  • Anti-scale.
  • Anti-drip.
  • 3m power cord.
  • Weight 1.15kg.
  • Ceramic soleplate with button groove.
  • 4 pre-set programmes.
  • Pre-set programmes include: silk, wool, cotton and linen.
  • Uses tap water.
  • Front fill.
  • Water level indicator.
  • Water spray.
  • Variable steam.
  • Vertical steam.
  • Self-clean.
  • Auto shut-off.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Collected a pair of slim dark-green cords that were getting hemmed at the tailors, and couldn't resist also picking up a navy/white-pindot silk square while there.

Oh, and I also ordered a few new shirts (a pale blue solid, a blue with a thin white/brown stripe, and another one or two I can't remember right now) at the weekend, as well as ordering replacement collars/cuffs on a few that are showing their age now, but none of them will be finished for a while. Must be patient!

The nutty prints I mentioned upthread arrived today. Super secure packaging, fast shipping and the paintings themselves are good quality; very good seller if anyone else was thinking of buying.

So I went to the framing shop to get them framed. Their size is awkward enough that I opted to get the frames bespoke rather than squeeze them into standard frames that don't really suit in terms of size/colour. Neither the (non sci-fi fan) sales assistant nor I could stop giggling at the calculated lunacy of the subject matter. I got exactly the reaction from her that I hope to get from visitors when they first see them; a glance, then a double-take, followed by good-humoured laughter and WTF questions.
Good God those are beyond hilarious
Yeah, they're well funky.

I was thinking earlier today where to put them once they're back from the framers and think the Scout Trooper is going in the hall and Jar Jar and Jango Fett are going in the kitchen. The contrast to a print of Caravaggio's Card Sharps on another wall should be enough to bring a smile to anyone's face.

Love the prints! I think you need to post some photos of your home. I suspect it's quite interesting.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I think I may have, some years ago. Sorry to disappoint but it's not that unusual really; very middle of the road to be honest. Georgian architecture, upper-middle tier department store furnishings, a few wacky touches like the prints at the margins. I've never really been one to get enthused by big interior decor renovations.

Neurotically neat, mind you. Everything has its place.

To Catch a Thief, To Kill a Mockingbird, Marnie, Rope, Philadelphia Story, Bringing Up Baby, Harvey, Fantastic Voyage and Cinderfella.

I can't wait till they get here. I'm sooo going to veg on the couch and not move.

I have seen all of those and they're all terrific movies. There's something to be said for the classics.
