I had an e-mail from Amazon today to tell me that the book on the left is being published next Friday, and that if I pre-order it now, I can get 5% off. It's a new diabetic retinopathy textbook by Gloria Wu. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Wu who?". Well, you are if you're Homer Simpson.
As it turns out, she's an American ophthalmologist. I've looked up her website, and she refers to herself as Dr Wu. So she's obviously battling not only eye disease, but Daleks and Cybermen. Anyway, my exclusive 5% discount means that I can get the book on the day of publication for the bargain price of just £89.30. Yes, £89.30. Frankly for that kind of money, I'd want Gloria to come round and read it to me herself. I think I'll wait for the movie adaptation and get it on DVD.
I may not be keen to woo Gloria, but as it happens, I have been making a few other purchases. As certain people spotted in yesterday's video, I've just become a Dell boy by trotting off to PC World for a new monitor. It's state of the art technology, with 24 inches of widescreen, high definition, crystal clear loveliness. Lisa says Farmville has never looked so good.
But that's not all. I've been back to the Martlets Hospice Furniture Warehouse. And I've bought us a dining table. It's arriving on Monday. My Dad's charging his electric saw as we speak...
