Something for the Weekend

I've just been into town for a couple of last presenty things. While I was there I thought I'd pop into HMV and treat myself to one of the films Rol recommended.

I couldn't find it anywhere. Not under 'Feature Films', nor 'Charts', nor 'Recent Releases'.

It was only when people turned to look at me as I enquired at the busy counter, "Do you have 'A Complete History of My Sexual Failures'? that it occurred to me that he might have made it up.

Luckily he hadn't. But at £18.99 I'm going to try Amazon.


  1. Ha! My cunning plan *almost* worked! ;-)

  2. I'm going to launch an appeal to boycott Amazon - 'tis not a good alternative use of the rainforest - do you know how large that darned warehouse IS?

  3. Rol - I could almost hear you chuckling.

    Laura - I wouldn't like the warehouse. But at least by linking buyers and sellers through the ether, Amazon has saved us around 300 miles of mileage this year...and helped to keep the Post Office afloat.

  4. If I asked for that in a local shop here I'd expect to be presented with a boxed set...

  5. Haha, I can certainly see why you were apprehensive! Very brave of you to ask actually. I have seen bits of that film and it does look like fun!

  6. I went to a screening of that film - loved it! Let me know what you think when you've seen it.
