    I thought the banner had that cheerful cafe oilcloth-tablecloth feel about it ๐Ÿ™‚

    morning all,

    Last week i rejigged the FF team as best I could, – and they were still crap.

  4. Bill says :

    Morning. Not working today Emms?


  5. emmachisset says :

    Morning Bill,

    no, don’t often do weekends ( try to avoid it ).

    We have a new contract for cleaning up after RTA’s, on an all night call out basis,

    …. but as usual the money’s not great, so i shall probably opt out of that one.

    listening to this on the radio:

  7. Bill says :

    What a bloody miserable day. Drizzling and need the lights on.

  8. emmachisset says :

    i got half way through it fings, – bit too downbeat for a grey day

  9. Bill says :

    Moving from Linux to android is taking bleeding ages

    Oh, forgot to do my ff team. After I stormed up to 4th place last week. Not sure whether it makes that much difference if I intervene, though.

  11. neartheclocktower says :

    Lovely article inspired a Smiths fest this morning.

    Have dropped heavy birthday pressie hints.

  12. neartheclocktower says :

    For the book, not the man (but, of course, I wouldn’t say no ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

  13. polly says :

    Good afternoon

    Did anyone see that film of the fruit being molested on the G? It was truly disturbing.

    Yes the J Marr book likes like a good read, though no doubt it will be half price in Tesco anyway. He’s still local, which I like.

  14. neartheclocktower says :

    No, missed that, poll. And I’m not googling ‘fruit molesting’ ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. polly says :

    rather worrying that none of them are using a proper dust mask. Lord knows what the HSE would make of it.

  16. Bill says :

    Having learned three different ways to shag a melon this week, I’m not going to contemplate molesting fruit.

    Anyone interested in melon shagging should look BTL in Rhick
    Sammader’s Wednesday piece.

  17. polly says :

    I don’t think anyone should contemplate molesting fruit Bill, it’s fruit and therefore cannot consent.

    The same applies to vegetables which are constantly subject to all kinds of perversions.

  18. Bill says :

    Jeremy Hardy on Pointless?


  19. emmachisset says :

    What did Jay-Z call his girlfriend before getting married?

    Feyonce. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Evening All. Just watched Strictly, got to the end of it and realised I must have been looking elsewhere through most of the dances. So watching it again now on iplayer.

    Emms, it cannot roll on anything like soon enough – spring that its.

  22. emmachisset says :

    hiya 51

    I’m making these ( slightly drunkenly ) but i’ve got the major bits done

  23. emmachisset says :

    the Question is,

    go get more booze while they’re in the oven, or ( more sensibly ), get them oiut of the oven, then get more booze ?

  24. emmachisset says :

    actually 51, it’s a trick question, there is no answer required

  25. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    8-9 mins your window for booze purchase. It is never safe to leave your home booze-less for 8-9 mins, Emms, rookie mistake. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. justamentalpatient says :

    *Saunters in*

    No booze?


  27. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Under the stairs, Justa. There’s always the odd wine bottle or 12 pack under there. I have a bottle of vodka somewhere, not sure where that is, and there’s a couple of pre-mixed Gordon’s and tonic in the fridge. You are safe here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. justamentalpatient says :

    Wot no beer?

    Good job I planned ahead and put some in the fridge before kidnappage.

  29. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    There’s beer, Justa. It’s the 12 pack under the stairs next to the cat carrier. Just it never made it to the fridge cos I wasn’t drinking it in cold beer weather, now’s the weather for warmer, browner beer. (Just between me and you this, right?, I like a little twist of lemon or lime in with the winter beer.)

  31. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Aww, he’s a little pudding. Jack I mean. Obvs settling in well, hard to get that right sometimes and you seem to have done it pretty quick. x

    Btw, anyone tried mulling it? (Bitter, I mean, not your bro’s dog) I’ve done cider (v nice but v little honey needed, it seems to sweeten itself when warmed) and wine, obvs.

  32. justamentalpatient says :

    He’s doing better v quickly in many respects. It’s going to take more time for them both to be comfortable. And he needs a lot of work, still.

    A lot of the good work bro did has been fucked since he came back from Scotland. He’s good at dog trainining, better than me. Think he wants us to calm him down a bit, though. Tilly being so chilled.

    Never tried that. If it doesn’t taste good, it’s a waste of beer.

    Which is a sin, of course.

  33. fiftyoneandabitmorenow says :

    Even if it’s horrible, I’ll hold my nose and down it. Just got to check if I’ve got cinnamon sticks now.
