Its been a really good year...lots of new toys to play with (PS2, Merlin, I-Phone, :) ), lots of new stuff to watch (3 terabytes and counting), read some nice books (Outliers, King of Ithaca, Mike Carey's naming of the Beast ), new books Im savouring and will read slowly over the next few months (Superfreakonomics, Howto move Mt Fuji) ( brilliant comic arcs (in case I havent said it before, I highly Recommend Conan, Punisher, Amazing Spider-Man and New Avengers), reconnected with old friends, explored East India, played a nice couple of board games I thoroughly enjoyed (Star Wars Monopoly, Kingdom Quest) , visited Turkey, lost weight, yadda yadda...
I also had a lucky break this year by not missing the Magrudys sale - though I went overboard and bought over 40 Lonely Planets (@5aed when the normal price is 120 AED)
And now comes the purpose for writing this blog entry...the Virgin mega sale only for Citibank card holders. Heres a sample of what I picked up (every one of these has an original price of 200 AED) and was sold at 10%
- Roswell Season 2
- 3 Seasons of X-Files
- 4 Seasons of Stargate SG-1
Among the classics (all 1930-60's approx)
- John Wayne Collection
- Humphrey Bogart Collection
- Sherlock Holmes Collection
- Elvis presley Collection
- Leading Ladies (Bette Davis, etc)
All in all a very profitable weekend.
