    Almost died today...

    Of embarrassment. Moving flat today so decided a clearout was long overdue. Took some clothes to the charity shop (good guy, remember this later), binned loads of tins of stuff that have been gathering dust and the last hurdle in my quest for a zen-like flat of no clutter was a box full of ps3 games (I've not owned a ps3 for 2 years) and dvd's from when I moved out of my mums house (6 years ago).

    We used to have a family friend who worked abroad and would bring 50 of the best selling (pirate) dvd's from his local shop when he came back, so I made sure to bin these, take out the music I wanted to keep, etc, and off to the trade in shop I went.

    After queuing for like 20 minutes and the boy taking like 10 minutes to file and sort all the games and dvd's he came to the last one - my brothers donnie darko dvd. Upon opening it he handed me, what looks like, a pirated porno. Brilliant.

    He said "is this yours?" and I thought saying "No, no, it's my brothers!" Would look far more incriminating, so I said "uhhh, yep. Yep, that's mine.." before sliding it in my pocket and walking out of the shop with my head hung low..

    So let that be a lesson to you all - check your boxes incase one of your siblings dvd's are more than first meets the eye.

    I love stuff like that, haha. Makes dull days funny...if not slightly awkward.
