Re: The Great Heartland Biscuit Thread™

I fear a schism brewing. There are biscuits (cf The Noble Bourbon), there are cakes, and there are breads. I am prepared to stretch a point and allow Jaffa Cakes to be dunked since they resemble biscuits, but I'm afraid that otherwise cakes and breads are right out when it comes to dunking. Don't be...

Re: If you're having a bad day... (currently happy)

Well that was a short but sweet respite from the burden of having to get up in the morning. My days of lying on the sofa watching proper telly and drinking tea (no dunking, alas, since I am All Out Of Biscuits, a situation that will be remedied soon as I am heading back to civilisation at the weeken...

Anyone in Manchester or its environs?

Because I am both Dutiful Son and Evil Bastard, I'm planning on coming back to the UK in September for a couple of weeks. Since Virgin has fücked about with its scheduling, I find myself with a day in Manchester on Saturday the 18th with nothing to do and no-one to do it with. The thought occurred t...

Re: (Yet Another) Currently Being Pissed Off By...

This is starting to become a bit of a habit. Started a new job in February - loved it, loved the people, my boss, my devs, the work itself. True to form, then, just as I'm thinking "I'm nicely settled here, I could see myself staying for a couple of years at least", they announce this morning that h...

Went to the pictures for the first time in I don't know how long to see Edgar Wright's Sparks 'biopic'. I had the entire cinema to myself (so no-one was around to complain about my surreptitious vaping), comfy reclining seats - ver' nice. Worth watching, even if you're not a huge fan of the band, pa...

Won't someone please think of the kites...
But why? Are these birds avenging something?
Mostly they’re scavenging something. Only recently, a child in a pram suffered nasty cuts after a kite snatched a custard cream from his hand.
