You'd better be damn sure to never piss her off when she's wearing those, mate. If she decides to kick you, you'll look like Swiss cheese.

I recently received

Sherlock Holmes - Complete Collection

a 16-DVD box set that contains all 41 episodes of the 4 series that starred Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes.

I probably only saw only about 1/3 of the episodes on TV so I will be looking at a lot of Holmes over the next few days.
I've always wanted to see those. Is that set available in Region 1?
I just checked for you. It is available in region 1 as a 12 disk set for $126. This is a much higher price than the region 2 16 disk set which costs about $US36 before postage. Maybe it would be worthwhile to invest in a multiregional DVD player. In Australia all DVD player sold must be multiregion after our Anti-Competition board declared that DVD region were anti-competitive.

The 4 series are also available on Amazon Instant Video for $1.99 an episode.

Oh and on topic today I bought some socks. And some wonton soup.
I'm a Warlock. I haven't played in a long time, though, at least not since Star Trek Online came out.

A rare treat, oh so good (and light, so that it only has about 11 sugars in it!)

Sort of want. My ex and I used to get those Strawberry ones since she loved them, but it took me ages to finish them for the sweetness, but that does look pretty tempting.
They are good. The light variety is a little less sweet (and is the only kind I can drink), but the Mocha is the best flavor.

I just pre-ordered Game of Thrones from Amazon UK. I do have the series on my computer after downloading it from iTunes but I am looking forward viewing all the extras.

Thanks. I actually check Amazon right after reading your post, but didn't see it listed. But, I typed in what you posted "Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Collection", instead of "Complete Granada TV Series". No wonder I missed it.

Anyhow, thanks.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Got my husband a cheap little pen with his name engraved on it (he told me not to spend any money), to go with the cinnamon lollipops and cinnamon jelly beans for Valentine's Day. Now I just have to keep it all hidden until then.

I did see a cute pen they had at the store; the engraved part says "I couldn't fine one with your name on it." I nearly bought that for my nephew. He and I both have "H" names and those personalized trinkets NEVER have our name.

Trade Paperbacks Issues 1-15 of the Walking Dead, Near Mint, for £70.00 (under half RRP, or £30.00 less than discounted retailers) covering the first 90 issues of the comics.

For my mother, who is a huge fan of the show, for her birthday.


Hugo - Not a fan of the comic or TV series so bought Issues #1-6 of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume 1, Near Mint (pristine in fact) for £10.00. Loverly

Lovely little thing. I had one back in the day, it was lost at sea. Literally.
