Better...

I have bought a bed. Yay. Also a discounted mattress (which I tried out first) and free duvet and bedlinen. Which I didn't actually need, and don't like particularly, but still: Free! And being delivered a week on Thursday. I don't understand how people manage to actually move house in one day - it seems likely to take me about a month.

I have established who provides the electricity, and that they know Bloke has moved out, and that the phone has also been cut off, so I will phone all those people tomorrow. Also the broadband people. And I have Bloke's telephone number in case of any more crises.

I have bought a box file to put all my house-related bits of paper in, and, er, the three new Doctor Who books. And food.

Tonight I will order a washer-dryer, and make notes of all the stuff I want from the Ikea website. Tomorrow I will continue cleaning and sandpapering and measuring at New Flat.

I feel less like I suck, now. Hurrah.

Also, apparently I haven't been paying attention to what's happening in town again - the Argyle Market has disappeared completely! Luckily by the time I discovered that, I had also come across Static in its new home down near A1 and the Dragon and George, so wasn't as panicked as I might have been at the possible loss of the main dice and RPG shop. Now we just need Forbidden Planet to move down to Parnie Street, and it'll be Geek Quarter.

I don't know! It seems to be turning into a Sports Division, or something of that sort. Not all of it, presumably.

I never, ever had the guts to eat there :D

It closed early in January. I don't think it's coming back in market form at all ... just the new sports shop.

Dear god, no. Leave Foreboding Prices where it is, that way I don't have to go near it. Or better still, close it. A comic shop that deliberately employs staff that don't know anything about comics doesn't deserve customers if you ask me.

Unfortunately, there only seem to be two options for comic-buying in Glasgow, and FP is one of them ...

Oh, do you know about Red Hot Comics? It's basically a warehouse in Castlemilk, but it's open to the public (sometimes!) and they'll take all your orders from Previews, and send you them as soon as they come through. That's where I got my comics when I was actually reading a few regularly...

FP, A1, City Centre Comics, Futureshock, Red Hot, and the comics warehouse in Giffnock just off the top of my head. FP and A1 just have the best real estate.

Yes, but A1 didn't have the Buffy comics :D

Have you managed to establish whether stuff left behind like microwave and rubber triffid is to be yours ? And you can always flog the free bedlinen on ebay.

Yep, all the stuff is mine! Which in reality means I have a lot more stuff to get rid of. But the microwave is nice.

Now we just need Forbidden Planet to move down to Parnie Street, and it'll be Geek Quarter.

... and maybe that'd give them enough room to have more books, and enough room for more than one person to get around the graphic novels/manga section :-)

Oh, I hate that section now. Not that I tend to buy graphic novels from there anyway, since even amazon is cheaper!

It used to be second-hand comics in that section :S Those were the days...
