Firefly and 5.1 Surround Sound
Last weekend i succumbed to temptation and bought Firefly: The Complete Series (Look and Listen had dropped the price by R100! I mean, how often does that happen??). Now, this would have been a good plan if i had noticed that the box set was Region 1. Alex's playstation, which we use to watch dvd's, is Region 2.
Well, call it the straw that broke the camel's back. This saturday i finally relented and purchased a DVD player with 5.1 surround sound. Whee! It is t3h l33t. See this Penny Arcade for an explanation. Of course, alex got up early on sunday to set up the speakers, and i was woken up to the sound of cannon fire coming from the lounge.
In addition, i nearly forgot that schpat was getting me some smoked salmon at woolies waste, so his call on saturday that he had the goods was a pleasant surprise. Got there later than planned (how is it that everything you have to do in a week, has to be done on saturday?), but it still turned out to be a good day, with plenty of food and good company.
Went to the folks on sunday, and produced smoked salmon, brie and camembert, courtesy of schpat. All about saw that it was good.
