Amazon UK and the bank seem to be conspiring to make me spend my money more wisely, by refusing to accept my otherwise healthy credit card for payment, and blaming each other for the refusal.

Strangest sight so far this week: Two women glammed-up, with an ancient-looking carpet sweeper, standing in the cold outside Parliament Station. One wore a banner proclaiming “Stepford Wives, coming soon!” Does it make me want to see it? Uhh.. no, not really.

Update 6pm. Amazon UK have now deemed my money to be as good as anybody’s, and accepted my order. Oh, and I like the way they suggest making some spare dosh (£40.01 no less) by selling the products I’ve bought from them in the past. Which includes the things I bought as gifts for others, and the latest order of stuff I haven’t even got yet.

Nooooooo do not see it. It was a bad movie bad very bad. Left it halfway through and snuck into Harry Potter 3 to see for a 2nd time.

THAT. IS SO COOL. I’ve just got this awesome mental image now!

I always feel so sorry for those people with the signs. Usually it’s “bargain basement european fashion” kind of stuff though, rather than a Kidman flick.

How weird. I was in Brisbane last week, and wandering around the mall were also 2 woman advertising the movie in the same way. It was kinda funny watching them strike poses. I was going to take a picture, but I was running late and the camera was buried in the bottom of my bag.
