Went to Retro's last night; met Leece in the carpark and she forced me to spend money in the Oxford St Bookshop. I bought the Egg, Bacon, Chips and Beans book, which is very funny, and Johnson's Dictionary. Interesting description of a lizard: "An animal resembling a serpent, with legs added to it."

More news of the forthcoming Serenity DVD. " 1. If you buy Serenity on DVD at JB H-Fi, you will receive (over the counter) an exclusive Slip Case/O-Ring that carries Joss Whedon's signature (these are not individually signed but the signature is part of the artwork). The O-Ring itself will have a mat finish and parts will have spot gloss and embossing so it will look fantastic!

2. If you buy Serenity on DVD at EzyDVD, you will receive (over the counter) an exclusive Tin Case. These have been produced by EzyDVD with artwork that we have provided and that artwork will be slightly different to that above so that it is exclusive.

3. Not a packaging option, but if you buy Serenity on DVD at Sanity, you will receive an exclusive Serenity Mouse Mat for FREE! "
