Odd desires
From time to time, I am possessed of a desire to own something that simply doesn't appear to be sold. Today's example happens to be a purple bowler hat. It's just about feasible that some fancy dress shop somewhere will sell one, but that's not what I want. I want a quality bowler hat. In the traditional mode. In purple. Is that really so much to ask?

One of those things we need a lot of money to askpeople to make :)

Nasty, nasty bands.

Unlike what some shops seem to think, there is a difference between a Derby and a Bowler. It seems to be in the shape of the brim. For some reason a Derby just will not satisfy. *sigh*

Wikipedia has a picture of a Portobello stall selling new black bowlers, dated 2005.

Of course, they're black, but it indicates that somebody thinks a stall full of black bowlers will sell. They might know where to get a purple.
