Buy now, pay 2008

This time every year there are a rash of adverts promising “Buy now, don’t pay till 200(x+2)”. I guess 2008 seems like the distant future even though it’s only just over 15 months away. The ads tend to die down in October, probably because by then we’re all starting to think about 2007.

Last Friday was the deadline for a big christmas-themed project, and I spent the week listening to festive pop / classical / carols. Now I’m all christmassy. Not fair. If anybody wants to help out by buying me presents, feel free 🙂
