Things I didn't know until recently: Rudolf Hess was a vegan.

Rant  ???

More a response to teh spesh, really.  Anyway:

The defining feature of a curry is surely that it has Stuffs in some sort of piquant and, well, curry-flavoured sauce.  Not dry chicken, dry rice, two manky lumps of micro-corn-on-the-cob and a sprig of broccoli that not even Chrissie Hynde could warm to.  And no sauce, just to be perfectly clear.

Yes, you, caterers to British Airways at Phoenix Sky Harbor >:(

I did not realize major UK supermarkets stocked homeopathic remedies but yesterday I discovered Asdal's own label tea.  >:( When I say remedy, it might be a remedy for tea drinking... (Their own label jam and brie were pretty good though.)
A cup of tea is the perfect bridge between real life and cake.

If you MUST serve your chargrilled half chicken on a tray, make she both it, and the table, are FLAT.
Having food spin as you cut it up is NOT fun!

...is the point I got to before concluding that you were probably talking about airline food.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

What the actual fuck, Southern's stupid train wifi blocks beer-related web sites. You can't download beer directly through the internet, I've tried.

You can download wine though. Or so YouTube would have us believe.

Actually, it turned out I was on EE and I'm now subservient to my wife's mobile account. She – sensibly – had content lock on, she claims accidentally, and not to prevent me wiling away my lost hours watching athletic ladies in rapidly increasing states of sartorial distress.

But they do block videos.

MrsT came home from shopping not with the tortilla chips we eat with guacamole but with wretched organic potato crisps.

"What flavour are they?" quoth I.

"They're bio," quoth she, pronouncing it in the French manner: beeoh.

So now we're eating B.O.-flavoured crisps with our evening glass of unspeakable H2O. Forget the guacamole, they're too fragile.

"Those Nacho cheese chips you like are full of all kind of horrible things," she sez.

"Gimme more," say I. "The bloody Metformin's already killing me, a few trace poisons won't change it. And some nice Badoit out of that plastic bottle in the fridge. Fuckit."
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.
