Listen in, listen Ian!
Brr. It was proper cold this morning while I was waiting at the bus stop|
(having just missed two buses, before waiting 15 minutes for two more to
turn up together. Tsk.) and if this keeps up, I may have to start wearing a
coat. I think I need a new coat for this winter - I was thinking about a
classic mac type thing, but when we were discussing it last week offensive_mango suggested something with a hood to avoid having to
take an umbrella out, which isn't a bad idea really.
I've got loads of sttuff I want to ebay. I've not sold anything on ebay
since they changed the way they price mail to add size in, as it makes it
more confusing to tell how much stuff will cost to post without going to
the post office. I've decided that instead of worrying about that, I'm
going to make a rough guess how much things will cost to post, set the
starting price of the auction to some amount higher than that and offer
free postage. When I'm bidding on stuff, I usually subtract the postage on
the auction from the most I'm willing to pay before I bid, so naturally I
assume everyone else does the same. Who'd ever do anything differently from
me? If that's the way I'm doing it, it must be right, right?
I'm way behind with it, having got the series 1 DVD in the sale at Virgin
recently, but I've now watched the first 8 episodes (up to where Caesar and
Cleopatra have a baby). I don't really know that much about the history of
it (beyond the obvious like Caesar conquering everyone) and it's fun
reading up about it afterwards to see what they've changed. According to
Wikipedia simbt Ptolemy and Cleo were 15 and 21 respectively when Caesar
arrived in Egypt but they look about 6 and 15 here.
