Blackstar HT-Reverb pedal

This case

Had seen that pedal before but it was too expensive to consider, went into the Dublin Guitar Center and it was there at half price. Crazy amount of settings, sounds awesome :)

new bed sheets, duvet and pillow covers

a timed plug socket thing and a travel mug

for coffee in the morning. the stuff at work really is shite. the timed plug should eliminate my laziness/lateness from the equation, with the downside of it not being freshly ground, but i'll get over that for the extra 3 minutes sleep.

all from the wonderful world of amazon of course

Cant wait to play it. I remember loving Apples to Apples in Canada, this game seems even more disturbing and fun.

Even though it's not close to Xmas, do yous think I'd still get stung on VAT ordering stuff from Amazon.com?

Kinvara 5s are €77 (shipping included) on there, but €120 on Sportsshoes

I order constantly from amazon and have never got stung for VAT.

They also have free shipping on a load of items, its ideal for the lazy fucker such as myself.

free shipping from the states?? hardly - sure you'd make a killing

I ordered the kindle touch off of the US site before it was available here a couple of years back, and got stung for VAT, was expecting it though. it worked out a few euro cheaper all in all compared to when it came on the UK website a few months later. i shipped using a forwarding address

How much did that cost given that it's all last minute purchases?
