consumer rage!

So, I ordered this attractive desk diary a week or so ago, because I gave up trying to find a 2004 Gorey one (last year my year was accompanied by the Gashleycrumb Tinies - hurrah!), and today it arrived. But! There are a few problems. First of all, it's not a ring-bound thing, so it doesn't stay open on one's desk (slightly defeating the purpose of a so-called desk diary), and second of all, the pictures are on the right page, and the dates and stuff are on the left. Which is fair if you're left handed, but as I'm not, and as the pages don't stay flat anyway, it's just ridiculous. And it cost a fucking tenner!

They still had some Gorey ones left at Comics Showcase the other day. I'm popping in to buy 1602 later, if they have any, shall I grab one for you? You could collect it when you're over for Pirates.

Yes please! Ooh, I didn't think they were making 2004 ones, I looked everywhere online. Thank you so much!

I now have in my possession one ring-bound A5-sized 2004 Gorey desk diary. It was the last one in the shop, and half-price too. The Doubtful Guest is soooo cute.

When are you over? I work in Soho, so you should be able to pop in during your frenzied West End shopping. I can even offer a calming cuppa while you prise this lovely diary from my fingers.

Thank you so much!

I shall be arriving at Heathrow on Tuesday at around two - actually, as I have to hang around until my sister gets off work at five (she works near Victoria), I could call in that afternoon, if you like. Give me an email to tell me where you are!

I have a little one called "Gorey Cats." Probably not big enough to put all your stuff in, though.
