Is it just me? When the Sunday Papers arrive do you just grab those little advertising magazine inserts with all the strange and ‘innovative’ products. I can’t help it, there’s just a fascination behind it and it’s very useful reading in the ‘boys library room’.
I must admit, even as the MSE, I’m strangely drawn to exciting sounding stuff which I’d never use. I’ve never succumbed to such instincts I hasten to add, but it sure does sound sexy….
My favourites this weekend were the “Hanoptik 12-36 x 70 Super Zoom Binoculars for a very special £39.99″….thirty six time zoom…WOW! Except what would I use them for, I live in central London, don’t want to stalk my neighbours and bird watching doesn’t interest me?….but still, 36 times zoom! Wow!
Next I read how to brighten up my garden with the chirpy looking cricket band, each one plays a musical instrument…these were slightly easier to resist as a.) I don’t have a garden and b.) well, they were insect ornaments. I then bypassed the shower radio (I’ve just been given a great one enabling me to listen to Radio 5 in the mornings) and scanned through the rest, neatly sidestepping the laser level tape measure (I never measure things…but what a great gadget) until reaching the end of the mag.
Sadly this week I didn’t manage to spot any ‘stand up urinating devices for women’ (though I found one on the web for those who want to see it). However I’m sure they’ll be there to greet me another day.
