Send him a pm sweetie... BIKKIT, it took me forever to figure that word out until some little bit of brain detritus fell away and the light bulb came on... Doh!! I love the little baby monk, he is altogether wonderful. :lol: :lol:
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Bought mine today in Sainsburys. £9.49.

Started reading it but then got the "I am starving and you need to feed me now!" look from the family so it will have to wait till I go to bed "sigh"

but......................

I have the day off tomorrow so I can REALLY have fun with reading it!

Woooo Hooooo! I am so happeeee!

Because you asked the wrong person? :? Try asking the manager :twisted: The staff are just being lazy if they have something in stock & can't be bothered to fetch you even one copy.

ETA picked mine up from Tesco on the way to work this morning :D Only read 29 pages so far though, no skiving off opportunities have presented themselves yet :(


You're right. Perhaps I didn't try hard enough. I'm calling again!

i got my copy yesterday at Tesco...they're always pretty good with new hardbacks!
the beginning of the book is hilarious (that is when it gets to the unseen university)
still got quite a bit of the book to go though and can't wait to finish work and get back to read it!

All you who have it - please think of those of us that haven't. :( ! I really need it too as I have a rotten cold and barely slept for runny eyes and sore throat and I can't afford to buy it twice!

Welcome Mroobalooba - great name!
