I am in a world of squee just at the moment.

Not only did the song go down amazingly well (and thank you [livejournal.com profile] cadhla for inspiring it and everyone who responded!) but when I went to MVC this lunchtime they had a box full of CDs and DVDs whose cases had been damaged in their recent flood, all going for 99p. So now I have thirteen episodes of Raffles, a couple of half-series of Xena, the entire final season of X-Files, the second half of Sapphire and Steel (which we have on tape but I'm trying to clear some shelf space) and several other goodies for a total outlay of 9.90. Which, even at this end of the month, for that lot, I could manage.

Etymological note: can anyone help me with a derivation, or any info at all, on the word (sp?) "thoyle"? It's a transitive verb, and seems to mean "feel one can afford," and Jan uses it a lot so it is probably either Fenlandish or Yorkshire. I've been curious about it for a long time but never got round to checking before.
