Thank you!

A big "thank you" to crazybutsound, who surprised me with a package the other day.  Inside:  a little bear dressed up for Halloween in a carrot suit (soooo cute!), and a DVD with the first two episodes of Hustle; a BBC show that I've never seen. 

Guess what, Jem?  My DVD player can read the disc!  I don't know how you did it, but whatever your method, that seems the way to bypass the PAL problem.  I'm going to try to watch at least the first episode tonight.  Thanks!

Oooo, you got it, yay! And I thought the bear was in a pumpkin suit, actually, was I wrong? lol

As for the DVDs, I can make NTSC DVDs from video files, which means I lose a lot in quality, though. That said it's still pretty neat to share some things. :-) I will be able to share more of Hustle if you like it, and I have a couple French movies I'd like to send you too. So let me know if the quality is ok or if it's really too low when you finally get to watch it, ok? :-) I hope you like Hustle as much as castalie does! lol

It's definitely a carrot suit. The little green ribbons coming out of the top of the hood represent the carrot fronds.

I just took a very quick look at the beginning of the DVD this morning so I could tell you whether or not my machine would play it, and the quality seems fine. I'll know a little better once I sit down tonight and actually watch an episode all the way through.

I hear you've been talking to jenni_snake. (She sent me an e-mail saying she'd seen my picture and "Mr. Baloo", so I assume you've pointed her over to the trip diary.) I'm hoping that you plan to update the trip diary when you have some time. I really want to see what you're going to do with the pictures from the Aquarium.

Ah, you're probably right about the carrot suit, then. I was convinced it was a pumpkin, which is why I'd gotten it to send to you initially for Halloween, lol. Oh well, it's cute anyway, isn't it? :-)

And yes, I've been talking to jenni_snake and showed her the pic in the trip diary as well as the manip with you and the whip. Speaking of the trip diary, I am working on it, but photoshop keeps crashing under the pretense of not having enough RAM memory to work with, grrrr. I have gone through the pics from the Getty and the aquarium and a few more, but I'm still not done, lol. There are so many!

Oh, dear God, I'd forgotten about the manip. *groans*

I don't know if you realise what you've let me in for now. Or maybe you do .... ;-)

Hustle! Hope you'll like it - I kinda fell in love with the series myself :-)
