TGIF. Somehow work seems even more laborious in an extra short week.
Retail special offers I have managed to resist this week:
- Ian Thorpe was signing copies of his biography at Dymocks on Wednesday lunchtime. Uhh, no thanks. Look, Thorpee’s impressive, but there’s a lot of other books ahead in the queue before I’d read his bio. Even a signed copy.
- 20% off all boxing gloves at Rebel Sport yesterday. As announced by a guy standing out front with a PA, just on the off-chance that the offer might be heard by a passer-by whose mission on a Thursday lunchtime was to buy some boxing gloves.
- Ever-someone in HMV on Friday at 4pm. Signing CDs I assume. Ever-who? Everlast? Everyday? Evermore. I think that was it. Not sure. Wrong demographic, obviously. If it was a lunchtime event, it would appeal to the office workers. 4pm, must be for the high school kiddies who can get there by then after school.
