Epic… interweb bitching*

So I’ve been fighting with Audible… more really to do with the fact that they shouldn’t show me titles I can’t have… and why the fuck can’t I have them?

I am a design-whore, so I really do judge a book by its cover… and look how beautiful everything is on this cover:

and really want to listen to it but I can’t…
coz I get this fucking warning:

“We’re sorry. Due to publishing rights restrictions, we are not authorized to sell this item in the country where you live.”

So I settled for this awesomeness… which I am not bitching about… Coz its going to give me 19 hours of pleasure baby* yes 19… epic*

but I am in love with “the Disappearing spoon”… and I still want it:(

So I’ll get the hard copy (but I was going to that in anyway…) I was just really looking forward to the audio-one…. thats the only thing that keeps me going when I go walking/running/crying at 5:30 in the morning.

I have mailed them..
with some dramatic-ness about how it feels like I live in communist China.
Lets see if the fuckers respond..

woe is me 😦

things that make me happy

Pure joy whilst stuck in JOZI traffic

I had the pleasure of this little treasure over the past couple of weeks. Its read by the author, and if I had to count how many times I very nearly lost bladder control because of pure awesomeness… Well I surely would have reached the double digets 🙂
Also what works with the driving thang is that these are essays, so you don’t have to keep track of a moerse plot unfolding while trying not to drive into a pothole. Too much of festive 🙂
