Consumerism Sport

The tyranny of distance

Eight out of eight on the footy tipping at the weekend. Of course, that wasn’t particularly unusual for the round — plenty of rank amateurs with no detailed footy knowledge like me managed high scores. I’m now equal first on one comp (much to Trish’s chagrin), equal second on the other.

My DVDs from Amazon UK arrived on Friday. Woo hoo! Unlike the credit card frequent spender points alarm clock I ordered, which is edging towards the anticipated 28 day delivery time. So, a clock from a warehouse somewhere in the country takes 4 weeks; DVDs from the other side of the planet get through in about a week. Logic? Not sure I’m seeing it.
