Why would the fact you're a moron upset me?

As an aside though another Move song, Flowers in the Rain was the first song ever played on Radio One.

That could and should have been posted on me remarkably unpopular Music anecdotes thread....

Sean, if the thread had been called useless music trivia it almost certainly would have been. I have any number of such facts I could amaze you good people with.

Hit me.

Happily, the first Spice Girls Single not to go to Number 1 was Stop, it was kept off top spot by Run DMC vs Jason Nevins - It's Like That.

Made a nice soup / broth last night. In a saucepan bring to boil a gammon joint and simmer for 60 mins with 2 sticks of celery. Add a whole grated carrot, 1 chopped onion, and 1 chopped leek. Remove gammon joint and celery, and add tomato puree (1 small can). Add a cup of macaroni, a tin of black eyed beans and Simmer for 15 mins.
10 mins before serving add a decent portion of cavalo nero cabbage, and return the diced or shreaded gammon back to the pot. Season with lots of pepper and chilli flakes to taste. Magic.

I microwaved some Heinz Lentil Soup for 2 minutes, stirred, then microwaved for another minute. Grated some cheese on top. Was f*****g rubbish.

Talking of China, where the heck has Ill Gia gone?  He is my favourite poster and he has disappeared.  

He was back to Mansfield (?) for Christmas, then I'm pretty sure he was going somewhere like Mongolia or one of these '-istan' places for a few weeks.

The Gammon was £4 and the rest probably £1 / £2 max. Fed 2 with another couple of bowls put to chill / freeze. Made it with lentils last time. I forgot I also added frozen peas as they are becoming my favourite vegetable. Very versatile.....

Peas were about the only vegetable that I never refused to eat as a kid. Have since been overtaken by babyleaf spinach and aubergine but still remain amongst my favourites.

Funny the stuff you don't eat as a kid. My nemesis was always mushrooms until 13 /14. Suddenly they were bloody brilliant. I think there is a scientific explanation for it somewhere.

I ate some fish the other day. It was calamari, breaded and from Busaba's, but was relatively pleasant.

Not a fan of them. Maynards for me as the black ones have a tanginess. Favourite sweet in Maynards Sports Mixture. Good texture and a good depth of taste.

Sweets and chocolate are my downfall. I don't eat badly in terms of meals, but I stuff my face with sweets at every opportunity.

I've never heard of Maynards Sports Mixture before but may buy a bag this afternoon because, unlike Tino, sweets and chocolates are not my downfall, I have no need to stuff my face at any opportunity. My downfall is having a pleasant doze at my desk after a cup of green tea only to wake up with the tea swilling around my throat and spilling onto the desk.

If I get a bag of sweets such as sports mixture I'll finish them in one sitting. Sweets are a bit like wine to me. Can't stop until they're gone.

There it is. Exactly the same here, I can't leave a bag and come back to it. Once it's open, it's gone.

They're big bags - 190g - I make sure they last 3 sittings.

The only things I can't stop eating once opened are Cadbury's Mini-eggs - the small chocolate eggs with the hard sugar coating. I have to limit my purchases of those.

I think my favourite sweet would be a sugar coated lace that woolworths used to sell. Think they came in a red, blue and brown flavour.

At the 'tuck shop' at school, they also used to sell fizzy watermelon penny sweets. Bloody marvellous they were. All sticky and gooey in your teeth.

Crème Parisiennes are my absolute favourite, otherwise known as crystallised fondants. Very expensive, and hard to find (although Lakeland have them).
To make them properly is a 3-day process, so I'm told.
Basically harder sugar on the outside, with softer sugar fondant on the inside, with light fruit flavouring. The texture of the fondant is exquisite.
I usually only get a box for Xmas or birthday and limit myself to 2 per day.

Bought myself a bag of Maynards Sports Mix, fairly impressed so far (have had one black, one orange, two yellow and a red). A bit pricey at £1.95 but that's the City for you.

Edit: Just had a green one, was not disappointed.

Ham & Emmenthal Ciabatta Roll (Waitrose)

enjoyment: 3.5/5 Nice bread, cheese and ham but nothing in general to write home about.

health: 3/5 No green or red. In fact, a couple of slices of tomato would have gone well both in taste and nutritionally. White bread Mayo and cheese ok in moderation.

price: 2.5/5 - Pricey @ £3.25. Rowley could have bought enough coal to heat his outside bog and water for 2 baths with that money.

overall: 60%

Verdict: Good but rather disappointing in terms of value for money. Packaging is satisfactory in terms of ease of disposal and entry itself. Ciabatta roll over-floured which is messy and also irritates my beard. Biggest flaw however (a common trait of submarine shaped flour based snacks such as baguettes, ciabattas and panninis) is the consistency of bite along the length of the sandwich. Retailers should heed.

Green ones are surprisingly good. A worthy rival for the blacks (non racist).

Good effort. Some jarring grammar and you've shamelessly stolen Galted's standard line about Rowley and how far your lunch money would go in Yorkshire but not bad, seany. Not bad at all.

Not a huge fan of tomato in a submarine-shaped flour-based snack, though it is acceptable. Far prefer green to red in the form of rocket or spinach. I shall certainly be keeping an eye out for a Waitrose on my travels as I find the price fairly reasonable, if slightly on the expensive side.

overall: 60%

Verdict: Good but rather disappointing in terms of value for money. Packaging is satisfactory in terms of ease of disposal and entry itself. Ciabatta roll over-floured which is messy and also irritates my beard. Biggest flaw however (a common trait of submarine shaped flour based snacks such as baguettes, ciabattas and panninis) is the consistency of bite along the length of the sandwich. Retailers should heed.

Good effort.  Some jarring grammar and you've shamelessly stolen Galted's standard line about Rowley and how far your lunch money would go in Yorkshire but not bad, seany.  Not bad at all.

Am impressed with the effort, don't worry about the theft accusation as anything decent that I post has more than likely been pilfered from Julius or Rowley. It's important that we format our luncheon reviews to aid swift information retrieval as not everyone has a memory like Tino's.

Update on the Maynards Sporting Mix, just took another 10 out the bag and found that I had 2 of each colour.

Yes, I do apologise for using the Galted Measuring Scale but I was of the opinion that it is the best measuring tool out there right now.

Where was the grammar bad?

Oh and the what Rowley could buy for that should be common currency within the culture club.

Just my opinion though.

I often use the GSoE for films. Generally they are good although he can be a bit pompous with his reviews.

I thought you wanted someone to call you pompous?

Felt like an opportune moment.

Thanks but I'm not sure I said that I wanted it, would just prefer being called "pompous" on the rugby boards to being ignored. I'd rather crap myself than drown in a canal if I'd drunk too much but it doesn't mean that I want to crap myself.

My first attempt at a taste explosion is red, orange and yellow. Not bad at all.

I hope Rowley doesn't take offence. He is waving his blue badge around a bit today.... The south has obviously traumatised him.

Slight variation on the second attempt, added another orange. My jaw is starting to ache.

My third taste explosion is a bit different, tried an orange one with some orange b'stard sauce from Wrap-It-Up. A bit like getting your end away when you've got a blister on your john thomas.
