I'm feeling ambivalent. Of late, my computer's playing up with ever-increasing frequency, and I may have to get a new one before long. I don't particularly want to, mostly because I don't like change. In addition, I have some sort of cold or flu. Not a particularly bad one (not yet, anyway), but enough to make me mildly ill.
But...I have made my first foray into online shopping (discounting a long time spent with eBay years ago, and that was done without any kind of credit card) a couple of days ago. I got myself a prepaid Visa card, and bought some audio drama downloads off the Big Finish website. I am now the proud owner of eight Doctor Who
audio dramas, bought and legally downloaded from the Big Finish website for the princely sum of $3 Australian each: Nekromanteia, The Marian Conspiracy, The Spectre of Lanyon Moor, The Fires of Vulcan, Flip-Flop, Minuet in Hell, Seasons of Fear
, and The Time of the Daleks
. These stories are no longer available on CD unless you try eBay or somewhere else (the first 50 stories released in the main Doctor Who
range are being discontinued in CD format, and these are amongst those whose CDs have sold out), so they make an excellent addition to my collection.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
