Last night I accidentally bought 108 rolls of toilet paper. They cost £17.97.
When they arrive I will know whether it is a good deal, because I have to allow postage from Approved Food (£5.25) and they are only marginally cheaper than the really cheap ones from Tesco.
However I picked up some other bits in the same order which were absolute bargains (gluten free snacks, Special K bars for bear etc) so the cost of the delivery is spread out a little. If they are half way decent quality I will consider it a good deal. If they are not I will consider it a fail. It could be worse. I was tempted to get 180.
Yesterday I went to the Leeds Art Gallery. They had a painting by Damien Hirst on loan from a private collector. It was a picture with spaced out colours, nice circles of household gloss paint on canvas. It looked very like this. though I think the circles were bigger and more spaced out.
It didn't speak to me. There was also a picture that was a very, very large canvas painted entirely the one shade of indigo. That picture did speak to me. It said that someone got a special offer on dark blue paint.
I'm not sure I really appreciate art. I'm sure that the spots and the blue painted canvas (which was huge) mean something to artists and people who understand art. I was an epic fail at art, and could never successfully draw anything. I have a sneaking suspicion that there is a point to them, but I also have a sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is sniggering. I think I miss the point. In the cold light of this morning I suppose I could create an installation piece of 108 toilet rolls entitled 'Bad Curry'.
