Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I am considering buying this, or ask for it for Xmas:

It's a mini version of the dollhouse I had as a little girl.

OMG! That would look SO horrible on me! My ass is big enough without this to emphasize it.

My latest?

I bought a “Timmy Time” blanket off ebay. “Timmy Time” is a kids show from Aardman Productions (Wallace & Gromit). I started watching it to reduce my tension. I love it! It’s a British show, so no R1 dvds ... yet.

I’ll be getting my Season 1 “Shaun the Sheep” dvds soon.

I love Aardman Productions.

Out of interest - how easy is it to buy a region-free DVD player in the US? Here in Australia most DVD players are region-freebecause the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission deemed that DVDs regions were anti-competitive.

No idea. I hope someone here can answer that, but we have enough dvd players (2 plus a blu-ray), so I can’t really justify another. Unless it were at a really good price.

Halo 2 (PC)

The only Halo game that was still missing in my collection - now I can say with confidence that I own every incarnation of Halo on every platform

I bought a lace valance for my bathroom window today. Doesn't look like I'd expected, so it's going back.

Nope...
The 2nd disc has 12(in Europe 14) more tracks, some that really should be on the 1st(as the single disc version)...
Each CD contanis 2 new songs as well...
So 24/26 hits and 4 new songs...
Tracklist on Wiki:
