Video tapes

It’s time to admit that I too many video tapes. Far too many. So many, in fact, that it’s too much of an effort to count them so I can tell you how many there are. It’s… it’s… somewhere around the region of… um… 300.

Yes, three hundred. <DEFENSIVE MODE> Look, I don’t know how it happened, okay? They bred! The bloody things have been appearing from nowhere for years now.

Fact is, I’ve now got so many tapes that I can’t possibly hope to watch them all before I die. Let alone finish my perennial project of cataloguing them.

Thank Christ I’m not buying any more, but reusing them. Otherwise there would come a time when we’d have to move into a bigger house purely to fit all the videos. Either that or evict the cat. As it is the videos have their own bookshelf. Which they don’t fit into. But it’s okay, it’s getting under control. I’ve been going to my regular VAA meetings. Video Addicts’ Anonymous.
