retail therapyThe retail therapy project

It's my birthday in just under a month's time. Birthdays are of course a time for presents, except that at my age (ie over 12) you don't tend to get given that many birthday presents any more. So, I've decided it would be a very good idea to buy myself a birthday present. However, I am rubbish at shopping. I think we established that yesterday. I never can spend money on myself, which will of course be a major stumbling block in trying to buy my own birthday present. So I've come up with this plan to ask you lot to help me out...

I have set aside exactly £100 of my own money to buy myself a birthday present.
I'm asking you, the readers of diamond geezer, to tell me what exactly what to spend that £100 on.

The plan (100% genuine, honest) for the next three weeks goes like this:
Phase 1 (until midnight Tuesday 18th February): select the category for the £100 birthday present.
Phase 2 (until midnight Tuesday 25th February): nominate possible presents within the chosen category.
Phase 3 (until midnight Tuesday 4th March): vote to choose my £100 birthday present.
...and that gives me a few days before the weekend to go out and buy whatever it is you finally select.

Phase 1 of the project (selection of birthday present category) is now open.
You are invited to choose one of the following categories. Just pick a letter...
(a) Music
(b) Books
(c) Video/DVDs
(d) Electrical/gadgets
(e) Home furnishings
(f) Clothing
(g) Travel
(h) Other

You can cast your vote by visiting this special online survey site (select survey number 3905), or by posting a comment in the comments box below, or by email, or just tell me your choice should we happen to meet in the street. This week just a letter is needed, and only one vote per person please (yeah, like I'm going to be able to check up on that one). All votes to be received by midnight next Tuesday 18th February. And next Wednesday I'll announce the winning category and ask you to start nominating possible presents within that category.

Please vote. My retail therapy depends on you.
