    I know how you feel. I've been stocking up on APX100 every chance I get.

    I've bought 100 rolls Pan F in 120, 100 rolls HP5 in 120 and 100 rolls of HP5 in 35mm in the past two weeks. It all has gone into the freezer. My wife is not happy but, hell, neither am I. I need Multigrade Warmtone as well but the credit card has been taking too much of a hit recently.

    When I cried on the Mrs' shoulder over the woes of the film world, she went shopping and filled the freezer with <gasp> FOOD!
    (I secretly think she's trying to spite me)
    I have a little corner on the freezer door that has a 5 pack of HP5, FP4 Delta100 and 400. All I could fit (and currently afford) :sad:
    Did buy a 50 pack of Agfa 11x14 classic FB

    Eat the food whilst she's out and re-stock it with film, she will never notice :wink:

    Ketchup, mayonaise, or even mustard on film and/or paper is quite tasty. Even by themselves, they just taste like chicken. Leave some room for a good frosty beer in the fridge though. (Ilford products have recently developed a slightly sour tinge I'm afraid ;-)

    Hah!! Well, if that happens let me know. I could always find an excuse to visit the UK again, when I was there last I only shot 35mm, I would love to come back with the LF camera.
