Took the plunge… and found a Wii

Well following-on from my previous blog entry, I’ve decided to take the plunge and go for the Canon EF 100mm Macro USM. It has been ordered online and should be with me “next working day” delivery. Whether that means next working day as defined by the common man, or next working day as defined by the postal service remains to be seen. I’ll post back here when I receive it.

Something else is troubling me though. At work, we ran a competition and awarded a Nintendo Wii as the first prize. Problem was, all of the UK Wii stocks dried up the day before we received authorisation to buy it. So instead of the most popular console at the minute, the prizewinner was given a rather handsome “I O U” (full-colour A4 laminated, mind you). Or should that be a “We owe a Wii”? I finally tracked down a Nintendo Wii today in Argos (2 weeks after the event) and brought it home. How tempting it was to “just check that things were working OK”.

Oh, I love shiny new stuff.
