Have you tried the HMV website? They've got a mega-sale on at the moment
(ie. new videos and DVDs really cheap). T'other place worth trying is
play.com - you might get more choice for around the same price from
those two sites.

I'm with you on both of those. Only trouble with "Cats and Dogs" is that

s'okay.
The Karate demo was a hoot as Kay dragged me there for a 2:00 start, then,
after bagging two front-row seats, finding out the 'demos' began at 2:00
and the first one was a local kid-winkies prancing class - where every
little mascarad and lipsticked strutter and mincer was given their moment of
glory.
I became more and more amused; Kay became more and more morose; I saw it as
a necessary evil ; she saw it as plain evil.

Then came the Karate group from long strips of wind in teens to grimly
determined little things that just about reached my knee-cap, it seemed.
Master barked out a series of orders and the group proceeded to knock spots
off the dancing troup when it came to moving as a team. Knocked spots off
each other, as well.

'You do THAT? !' I asked as feet almost kicked off heads and fists punched
and mangled and bodies flew over shoulders to grovel on mats
'Yes, why?'
'Err. nothing... Phew!!!'
Run away!!!

Who is this James person of wot you speke, eh? I've tolled you about

And nobody told _me_ that you hadn't gone home on Monday as planned, I

make it over again on Sunday, so I put them away again. Tch.

Swhy I said "made it big in the west", innit.

Though actually I have no idea how well it did in China ectetera...
I'd be mildly surprised if it had flopped, though the wire-stunts
weren't up to much. The poignancy of the last quarter is very
HongKongie, they seem to go for that sort of thing.

I was in the middle of making dinner - 25 minutes simmer, just enough
time to stop Malc from ringing up and whingeing about lack thereof
incessantly. Whoosh/drop/whoosh/stir.

Can't blame me for that - get Amynthas to ohl a arj CDrom for Malcolm,
his is somewhat ropy. You could have installed it to his PC across the
wetnurk from your arj CD drive, anyway.

Oddly, from within Zimacs (which sure ain't M$) I can just click on it
and away it trots to the right place.

Talking of fillums...I've just watched The Stone Tape, the first bit of
which I saw thirty years ago. It was as good as I unforget.

From other replies, looks like it's only IE that caters for the
backslash-disadvantaged. Tish and pish.

Have any of the other browsers got anything as handy as IE's "type in
the middle bit of www.bit.com, hit control-enter to fill in the rest"?
That's my favourite.

And, after all, what is a "step" to one on a bouncy castle ? Or skis, for

You wouldn't have liked this one. Initially persuaded to enter a hollowed
out wheel of cheddar in order to break out glorious in frou-frou and
feathers during a departmental wine-tasting do the poor girl was sealed
inside and smuggled through customs (and past sniffer dogs) and flown
somewhere east of Nuur.

Had she provided caviar on toast for the head of DT. department, and not
tuna, then she wouldn't be in semi-retirement today. (They hope the smell
will have lessened by Christmas.)

The Wumpus is 'always' gnashing her teeth over something or somebody. It is
being in a costant state of simmering resentment that keeps my spry and
active - and grey haired, and wrinkly and smoking like a chimbly pot.

Today's lucky winner is the stinker who bullied, yes, bullied, me into using
a snare and a delusion called Instant Messier, then sent 'back in ten mins'
and wasn't, despite protestations to the contrary.
Humph. Excuse me while I fume.

Hmmm. That brings me to another reason for slow simmer. The man OTOC used,

I am pathetically grateful for the 'we' in this context.
I dunno about you, but I am a half elvish neutral Druid (give me strength)
with a tattoo and picked myself a long brown cloak for to hide inside.
However! Wretched bird keeps prancing about in a leather teddy and boots and
waves a big sword about. I was supposed to be a tree-hugger not a bashem
type.
Grumble.
now leave me alone until I can get her to walk in the direction I want - if
I could work out which direction, which I can't, and who the heck is that
beefy bloke trying to start a conversation? can't he tell i am having big
trubble just moving about.

Hoppit, I am about to crawl off to save the world from the onlaught of the
shrieking plague, or some such. Where is my wolf; I wish to howl at the
moon.
