Food 'Glorious' Food : Not for the squeam·ish

"I know", I thought I will pop home for lunch and have a nice relaxed sandwich and cup of coffee in front of some Food network program.  So, with  2 cheese rolls in hand I settled down to some program about Caribbean food.. All was going well with Coconut Cake drizzled with Condensed milk, some kind of rice salad and then it came... the street vendors selling deep fried Pigs Ears, Hearts, Lung and trotters.  Just as I thought it wouldn't get any worse.. It did..deep fried pig's lower intestine.. or crispy poop holes as the presenter called them. Let's just say I only managed 1 of my rolls.  In hindsight it is no different to Scottish Haggis which I adore or indeed Black Pudding but the thought of having a deep fried pooper doesn't appeal to me.  Maybe I ain't as gay as I thought not liking asses.  !!!!Bring on the salad!!!!

Happy 120th Birthday Agatha

Well who would have thought. 120 years ago today Agatha Christie was born.  She gave us the nosey old neighbour Miss Marple; the Belgium detective Hercule Poirot who excerised his little grey cells and the little known Tommy and Tuppence the typical upper middle class "bright young things" of the 1920s.

As a lot of people now know, Agatha's disappearance on  December 8, 1926 was due to a loss of memory after battling a giant wasp whilst being aided by two people, one dressed in a rather striking brown suit, the other as a slapper, or was that flapper.  The thing I didn't know was she was friends with Felicity Kendall all these years ago.  It came as quite a shock I can tell you, you would never of guessed she was that old.

So in celebration I shall read one of Agatha's early books, possibly The Mysterious Affair at Styles which was her first.  Failing that I will read about Charles Dickens meeting Ghosts on Christmas Eve (like that would happen) or have tea with Noddy.  Actually saying that i am supposed to meet Big Ears for a coffee later this morning

It Begins!!

Well its day 1 of the blog and what can I say.. The birds are singing, the sun is shining and all is right with the world!!! What a load of old shit, its cold, dark and September lol...

Its been a bizarre day today, was in the office by 6.45am and by 4.15pm I was absolutely cream crackered.  For those of you that don't understand I was bloody knackered.  Listened to the Happiness Patrol while working (which is strange as that is normally a ironing pleasure) and had to silently giggle to myself...Thanks to them I now have the bloody Road Runner Theme going round in my head...Cheers for that Lewis.  I read Nicetoseestevies blog which made me laugh.. He certainly knows about the end of the world in 2012...

Anyway as not to over exert myself, and the fact I need to go eat, which is another good reason for my brother staying with me as he is a chef and tonight's delicacy is Thai Green Curry.. Then it is off to visit Mr Who, a large blue police box and a tin dog...

Till next time... Live long and.... no wait wrong show... it's the end and the moment has been prepared for
