70DM they wanted…35€…$42.6064... ₤23.7622 (yes, I did look up those last two amounts). Bloody hell – the printer only cost 120DM…erm…let’s see…60€…um…oh do it yourself.
Well, today as I was loitering suspiciously in the local computer shop I found for 9€ ($x, ₤y) what might be the answer to my inky prayers...
...looks suspiciously like...drugs -
will I become an inkoholic??
I love this kind of thing…
It’s a fill-up-the-old-cartridge-yourself-and-get-ink-all-over-the-fucking-place kit
which is aimed at save-a-few-pennies-but-end-up-paying-out-more-than-you-would-have-
if-you-had-bought-the-normal-thing idiots like me who tend to do-it-ourselves-and-regret-it-forever….
Sorry, have to break off for a moment – I just hyphenventilated.
Anyway, this is a really sinister looking kit. When you peer through the packaging you can see the cute little bottles but what attracted me was the plastic syringe in between them. I very nearly said, “w o w, c o o l” in the shop. But when you open the package… W O W, C O O L …there are all sorts of little devices…yesss!
I haven’t actually tried it out yet but I will. There is a little instruction booklet with it too…but I don’t need that – I will use my inkstinct.
