People who eat noisily

I think I’ll just have to write something in order to block out other noises. Hopefully this will mean I don’t go utterly insane.

Anyway, what’s happened recently? Well, I bought a car last month, courtesy of First Direct, thanks guys 😉 It’s a red, no, make that “Flash Red” Seat Leon, Y reg (end of 2001) with about 80k miles on the clock. Now that might sound like a lot, but the rest of the car is in very good condition, so I figured it was worth it considering my somewhat limited budget.

The alternator has already died, so I’m now full into owning the car and everything that entails, mainly expenses! Still I’m really happy with it and glad that I got it when I could as it will make visiting the parents this Christmas a LOT easier than it has been for the last few years on public transport. Carrying presents on trains and especially the London Underground is no fun what so ever. The ability to just dump them into the boot and just set off is fantastic.

I really want an MP3 player so I can listen to music again when I’m not at home. I’ve sold my MD recorder as I was never using the thing anyway (ah the pleasures of eBay) and now I’m without any kind of “walkman”. Also, the car only has a radio (I hate radio) and tape player (quality is too bad). The Creative MuVo V200 is very tempting at only £120, but I’m just wondering if I get a Motorola A1000 and stick 256MB TransFlash card in it instead. It would be one less thing to carry around. Hmm….

Tonight I’m going to some listen to some carols at Bath Abbey and then a little cinema at the new Odeon and a take out. Have fun.

Just found some cheaper TransFlash prices and pricing for 512MB card at valuemedia.co.uk, also I think an SD adapter will be essential in order to get stuff onto TransFlash quickly.
