I remember the days of when I used to work in London, and taking the Tube home and hoping to arrive before 22.00hrs. Why? Because thats when StarTrek TNG was aired.
For the life of me, I had never thought that I would like the series, in fact, I used to laugh at “all those trekkies”. Then one day, I just kind of “fell in to it”. (like a worm hole).
Just a few days ago, I was in “El Corte Ingles” shopping centre when I happened to walk past the DVD section, and calling out my name was the new Movie Box Set. Now, I´m not really a Captain Kirk person, but hey, I thought “why not own the entire movies set?”
Anyway, the store wanted 120€ for the set (I was going to haggle down to 90€, but I remembered that I wasnt at “The Morning Market”) and I was just about to buy it when a girl standing next to me pointed out that “If you buy 3 DVD´s, you can get 35% off each one!!”.
So I took her advice and shopped around for other titles, and finally decided on “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” and “The Witches of Eastwick”, the former I chose because Marilyn is just gorgeous and the latter because Nicholson is just “one horny devil”. So, after checking out, my final bill was 85€… 🙂
On the way out of the store, the girl waved at me and mouthed “Live long and prosper”, and I smiled and replied “The needs of the many, outweigh the need of the one…”
Okay, the above isnt really true, but hey, theres alway the Holodeck to “Make it so”….
Okay, enough, its late and I´m off to bed…
