    Morning. Busy day ahead.

  3. Bill says :

    Missed that.

  4. Sleepychow says :

    Nice one, Bill.

    Morning all.
    About to plop MiL & H at the train station for their big day out in York.
    The Yorvik thingy and the chocolate factory ( after lunch ) have been mentioned.

  5. polly says :


    I note 80 people have been killed by a car bomb in Kabul.

    Not sure Kim Kardashian has mind you.

  6. polly says :

    It just got a couple of minutes on 5 live.

  7. polly says :

    Always a stranger to a sense of irony, the Mail has a (truly horrifying) story on a clinic in Ecuador offering a ‘gay cure’ where “Female patients can be forced to wear makeup, skirts, and high heels in an attempt to ‘feminize’ them”.

    It’s not like there are any British newspapers that advocate that kind of thing is it?

    Still, right on Julian, now f*** off and live there.

  8. Tybo says :

    What day is it today? I thought I had scheduled a post. Did I forget to click something again?

  9. Tybo says :

    Ah! OK, looks like I got my AMs and PMs mixed up. Sorry about that and thanks for stepping in, Bill.

    I will try to reschedule it so we don’t have two threads on the same day.

  10. Sleepychow says :

    That’s next week’s Wednesday post sorted then.

  11. Sleepychow says :

    Had a strange brunch yesterday at a Street Food cafe:
    Fried noodles ‘n’ onions, an egg, slices of avacado, a plain scone, a slice of orange and a wedge of melon all on the same plate … and a side plate of a pancake.

    I mixed all the flavours together on my fork. Never thought I’d eat egg, orange and avacado all in one mouthful.

  12. Sleepychow says :

    The yolk of the fried egg was so sticky-uppy I guess they must use a sticky-downy frying thing.

    I know fresh eggs can be very pert but …

  13. polly says :

    Everything’s street food these days Sleeps. But none of it is served in the street, unless you count the man who sells sweetcorn and vegetables on Market street, but strangely doesn’t claim to be selling street food.

  14. Sleepychow says :

    … scone, melon & fried onions …

  15. Sleepychow says :

    It’s a “thing” isn’t it, Poll.

    At least they did have cranky old benches and tables outside and the “waiter” looked like he hadn’t washed for a few days …

  16. Sleepychow says :

    Here we have real street food of hot dogs or jacket potatoes, unless we go to farmers’ market days where they do do actual street food … or maybe it ought to be called Pedestrianised Walkway food.

  17. Tybo says :

    Morning Sleeps. I love the Wellcome Collection, a very bizarre museum who hosted us when I was doing the trips and even gave us a free lunch. I am getting their posts as adverts on FB and this is the best one yet. (the pic is at the top but if you scroll down a bit you get the full post)

    “What’s Covfefe? Our collection suggests it’s a demon that you summon by writing its name over and over again. Its powers are still unclear. Bear with us as we research further! ”

    I genuinely can’t tell if they have found a real picture of a demon called Covfefe in their huge collection. But I think it is a lot more likely that they have grabbed a pic, reproduced it, written “Covfefe” on top and scanned it in and then turned it into a FB advert.

    I actually prefer the second idea. Makes me jealous of the people who work there though.

  18. Sleepychow says :

    Off for the zapping.

    yip & ee

  19. Sleepychow says :

    Will read you later, Tybes.


  20. polly says :

    I walked past two restaurants in the very nice corn exchange yesterday and they both said they sold street food. Last one I went to (Pho) was £20, so not very street prices, though admittedly that included drink and pudding.

  22. polly says :

    Torygraph is predicting labour gain of 28 seats and a hung parliament. Strange days indeed.

  23. justamentalpatient says :

    There’s a Nepalese food wagon here sometimes. Never tried it, but do love me some momos!

  24. Bill says :

    There was once a ham sandwich on the verge on Mill Lane. Harry-the-dog found it and was well chuffed.

  25. justamentalpatient says :

    V muggy here. Wanna storm. Wannit now!

  26. polly says :

    If only this were true….

    It would be great if the entire nation united and wrote ‘none of the above’ on their ballot papers. I reckon we’d manage without a government.

  27. Bill says :

    Flipping eck it’s quiet.

  28. polly says :

    I think everyone has given in to despair Bill. I’m desperately looking for something amusing but even the Mail is letting me down.

  29. Bill says :

    This headline in the Mail cheered me up:

    Could Theresa blow it? Shock poll predicts Tories could LOSE their majority. Survey suggests Labour could GAIN up to 30 seats

  30. interiorbc says :

    sorry, no frivolity from this canuck today…the mr is working out of town so a bit low…:(
    me and the dogs, wine, the paper and a ciggie or two…also work…

  31. justamentalpatient says :

    I hope your canine companions are providing cuddles, inty.

  32. justamentalpatient says :

    Along with the obligatory farts, of course.

  33. interiorbc says :

    …and burps 🙂

  34. justamentalpatient says :

    Ah, yes. The belch right in your face after they’ve eaten. 🙂


  35. justamentalpatient says :

    If it helps at all, at least you Canucks aren’t facing 5 years with a shagpuppet like May at the helm right now.

    Sorry about that orange monstrosity next door, though.

  36. interiorbc says :

    hahaha, very true…also the wee beagle has breath that could rival any toxic waste dump…have to make sure he eats his beagly food and not the bigger doggies food – he has a sensitive stomach and is missing his dad, poor wee thing.

  37. justamentalpatient says :

    Aww, poor lad!

    Wheaty stuff sets off psoriasis in madam, so have to get sensitive grub for her. Jack seems to be OK with it, but having three, different breeds, different needs can’t be easy.

    Beagle bum…

  38. interiorbc says :

    Different foods, different toys, different treats, but ah, bless ’em 🙂

  39. JamesFrance says :

    ‘Evenin all, the tories are in for a #covfefe !

    I don’t know exactly what that means, but it’s something bad 🙂

    Right, just zooming by (im memoriam there), bedtime!
