- The highly erotic/sadistic piece of the dream sequence in the 1941 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde starring Spencer Tracy. Otherwise, the film was mostly average, though Tracy's performance was good, and there was an interesting variation on the multiple fade change near the end. They superimposed his eyes separately so while the rest of the shot had the normal fade issues, his eyes remained mostly static.
Quite clever, as we tend to look at the eyes.

- Lex slept last night from 9pm until 9:30 this morning. Generally five to six hours is a really good night!

- Finding the original computer game Fallout for $15.

- I did a stocktake, and discovered I have $11,000 (retail) of Doctor Who toys and DVDs to sell. Given that chunk of my stuff is imported, and I don't charge huge mark-ups, that's kind of amazing. That doesn't count the couple of things I have to send to people where it's been delayed due to baby/house-cleaning/health issues.
Before the stocktake, I thought I probably had about $5K in stock. There's another twelve hundred worth of other DVDs and toys.

Ah the "sleep through the night" thing. Wonderful!

BTW< was it a boxed Fallout or was it on Good Old Games?

I love that they sell these games like this.

Boxed Fallout, though if I'd known about GOG I would probably have gotten it from there.

Well at least you know where to buy the sequel now.

I nearly bought a XBox 360 to play Fallout III but then decided to beat the 3 prequels first...

Wasteland - Complete
Fallout - 50% complete
Fallout II - Not started

Do you happen to have Dalek Invasion of Earth in stock?

Nope! But if you want to wait until the next time I put in orders in a month or two, I can probably do it for about $43, since you're a regular :)

Sounds like Sharon managed to persuade you not to keep half the Doctor Who merchandise.

Actually, it was never an issue. There's not that many toys or figures that I want for myself - I've only kept a very tiny portion of the range, and occasionally I decide to sell some of the ones I kept anyway.

Though I will probably aim for a full set of the classic figures.
