Another birthday dis-ARSE-ter ...

... like, if I believed in gods and stuff, I'd totally think they were, like, out to get me or something. You know?
On a personal shopping mission for Mr Brown, I stopped into a City electronics store to purchase a Flip. But no, they aren't made any more, so I'm told. And the closest thing, a Bloggie (FFS) cannot be had for miles around. Certainly not by next week.
I console myself with the fact that Rupert has a video function and with the fact I walked past this shop on the way home.
I personally shopped this, inspired by the opulent over the top art of Mr Gustav Klimt, which will sit on the middle finger of my left hand many, many times in my post-birthday future.But still, dudes, like, totally thwarted and stuff.

Gorgeous! Well shopped, thwarted mouse.

Sorry to hear about the Flip-ping disarseter, but the ring should make up for that disappointment. Beautiful, as most Michaela Frey pieces are!

Very Klimty!

Totally sucks, man! And can you believe this shit about the Flip? It was a great product with a huge market, company got purchased, and that was the end of it. What bs.

Wake up! Birthday month!

I can't understand why they'd stop making such a great product!

I'm AWAKE, I have a birthday sickness! I feel so special.

O, and yes, isn't it a lovely pretty thing?

S said...

wow...how odd. (and how cool that I have one already!) wanna borrow it?

Ms Brown Mouse said...

S, Rupert's got video, but if I can't get it to work I may well take you up on that kind offer.

One very snazzy ring!

Lee, and they sent me a 15% off discount voucher for my birthday (which I may have casually mentioned) so I may get the earrings too!
