After an evening's worth of wood burning my kitchen is up to 16.7C whilst my lounge, which I have abandoned, is at 12.5C. I've also noticed that the fridge temperature is 4C whilst the outside temperature is 3.7C so I might just put all the food outside and save some electricity whilst I'm at it.

I don't mean to pick on you particularly, you just posted the word most recently, but anytime food is mentioned no one can seem to get enough of being amazed.

How anyone gets their shopping done I dunno, aisles must just be full of people staggering around dumbfounded and flabbergasted by like rice pudding or some poo poo.

I don't think I've ever been amazed in my life. Sad.

Hmmm. Maybe when I was a baby and the food was delivered like it was an aeroplane and I'd never had food before. But even then I was probably just like, whatever.

On sandwich talk, I can mostly stomach any old poo poo so I'm not really fussed. Or so I thought.

A year later I was driving through spain to Gibraltar in a rubbish car with no aircon stopping only for fuel because I had miscalculated and so was in a hurry. This meant buying petrol station sandwiches. Spain is really interesting and there is a lot to say about it but the petrol stations are just like generic ones on the outskirts of leeds but in nowhere Arizona and the mexicans forced to staff it don't speak any english.

I flicked through the sandwiches on the rack as if they were LPs at my local independent record store. A casual air about me.

I was disappointed in myself for being so, i dunno, culturally poo poo, so upon seeing the mediterranean sandwich I thought yeah, maybe when I pay for my petrol this teenager will respect me for my locally sourced sandwich (spain is next to the mediterranean). I also had images of like I dunno vinyards and oranges, dancing horses and spicy sausages.

Turns out though the mediterranean is primarily understood as being a sea so it was a bunch of seafood in a diagonal brown bread sandwich, bought hundreds of miles from the sea in a desert petrol station. One bite and chucked it.

Swam there for a while. Best time ever was watching kids on some school thing sneak up to the high up diving boards, crawl to the edge, poo poo themselves,fight each other, get screamed at and crawl back down the ladders. I wouldn't even go up the ladders.

Glasgow has a ridiculously good vegan scene but yeah if you don't want to do standard tourist poo poo (kelvingrove/goma/cathedral/necropolis/transport museum/tall ship) just go do what us locals do and get drunk. Loads of good bars, if it's a nice day the inn deep next to kelvinbridge subway is lovely and you can sit by the river, otherwise take your pick. The city centre/west end is way less scary than the reputation suggests, just stay out of the schemes.

Funeral is likely to be in the next two months, so not exactly a nice time of year up there. Also its actually erskine these days, and no doubt the erskine bridge hotel like the last 10 funerals/weddings. Mainly funerals. I have a perversely positive glimpse into my fathers mindset whenever we cross the erskine bridge in the funeral cortege and we always name at least one extra car on the crossing so they don't have to pay either as a final family gently caress you to who the gently caress ever.

bbc news posted:

Charles Mamboleo, who runs a farm in south-western Nakuru County, discovered the cow feeding on a sheep one morning, having apparently gored it to death, the Daily Nation website reports. Fresh food and water couldn't tempt the cow, and another sheep met its end the following day, the report says. "After the first incident, we thought the cow was starving, so we increased the supply of fodder and water, but it still continued chasing after sheep," says Mr Mamboleo.

To be honest I had my doubts about this thread, but seeing the recent volley of accurately pitched respect posts for dogs... yeah seems ok here.

Although still, grown men using the word 'cute'? I guess you're more comfortable in yourselves than I am.

NotJustANumber99
Feb 15, 2012



I wrote an addendum initially to apologise to non male posters for the non-inclusive language and that it was merely for effect and brevity but it somewhat undermined those exact two points.

It also wasn't very cute.

NotJustANumber99
Feb 15, 2012



I am pleased to hear it, I suppose apart from the fact that such a place is unusual. I remain sceptical regards the word cute.

edit. I guess if it turns out to only be ladies using the word cute then I am in fact validated in my weird and outdated views. Validation in the face of progress is one of my favourite things to experience.
