I've just won an argument with Amazon that's saved me £100 and made me feel smug as hell. What are you smug about atm?
My Kindle Fire has started having a reboot fault, where it just reboots constantly, I can't use it for anything, cause it won't get past the initial screen. Online there are loads of people posting about the same problem, and that it's an issue with the base software on the device.
To cut a long story short, because it was WAY out of warranty, they were going to charge me for a new one, and the delivery, and everthing, that came to £95. I sent a smackdown email, and an hour later they backed down. Free replacement (refurbished I would guess, but that's fair enough), free delivery and a nice email.
and after a while she asked for my number.
I'm living the dream of all indie bedwetters around the world.
Dunno about me though. Got a bit lucky.
She'll never call.
And she's already quit her job so you can't go back and find her.
and i'm only 500 words away from finishing them both and being able to watch game of thrones. only need to get low merits on them to get a distinction overall cause I've totally aced my masters so far (my average is 95%). so smug. (I am in quite a lot of pain right now though).
I bought a tiny porcelain doll kit from 1989 from Ebay for about a tenner a couple years ago. The person had bought it at a fair and just never bothered to put it together. Couple years ago when I bought it,I glued the eyes in, strung it together with elastic also bought from ebay & then left it. She's tiny like barbie size and pale porcelain with a lovely shape, you can turn the head, arms and legs. I've just put a doll wig on it which I bought a couple years ago for like £5, cut it to shape and painted the face and it looks really beautiful. These sorts things that look really similar usually called BJD (ball-jointed-dolls) from Asia and cost at least £250. Total cost to me : £15 or something :)
