I like crisps on tuna and mayonnaise sandwiches.

I just had a Chilango Buritto.
It was very tasty.

God I'm bored. Ran out of coffee. Can't get into the CMS.

I spent twenty minutes editing something in Word and accidentally saved it to Outlook Temp instead of a 'real' file. Now I can't get it back out of Outlook Temp. I want to punch myself in the face.

I just popped out to get some rolls to make sandwiches with for the rest of the week, and pick up the latest Private Eye.

The strap on my digital watch finally snapped during the first half of the Barnsley v Wolves match yesterday.

Naturally I'm sad, but the fact that it passed whilst in the midst of duty brings me great comfort. I had to hold it Alex Ferguson style during injury time to see how long was left. Then at the final whistle I pressed stop (at 4:57 time added on). I'll keep that time visable until the batteries run out, and put the watch into the 'drawer of things that need fixing but never will'.

You know, if you could string these wonderful vignettes of your life together into something about 60 minutes long, you could give the intolerable - yet staggeringly successful - Stuart McLean a run for his money.

Pork Butt is really cheap, which means home made carnitas is a bargain. $8 of pork feeding 2 for four days (I mean, we had 4 on one day, but stretching it out for easier math). Oh, plus dog treats.

I totally biffed on cabbage for the borscht at the farmers market, so i used half a jar of kraut i had in the fridge instead. It worked surprisingly well.

I think I ate too much fried catfish in Nashville. It's not easy to find around here, so I had it twice in four days while visiting my mom. I didn't think it was possible to eat too much of it, but there you go.

Also, Nashville is not Baton Rouge. No self-respecting Cajun would plunk a dill pickle slice on a pile of fried catfish. At least they held the cole slaw like I asked them to.

Have I mentioned how much I hate it when dill pickles come into contact with my food?

I've recently discovered that the proper Scottish way of serving porridge is the best. You've got to have it with salt.

The strap on my digital watch finally snapped during the first half of the Barnsley v Wolves match yesterday.

Spookily enough, when I was tying my shoes before a game of football, the laces on my right trainer snapped at almost exactly the same time as your watch strap.

I just bought a 200g jar of coffee which was 15p cheaper than a 100g jar of the same coffee.

Just attended a three-hour course on risk. Alas, it wasn’t about the imperialist board-game of my youth. I felt a right wally wearing my Adrian helmet.

I just gave the same training presentation that I've given 7 times over the past two weeks. The thrill has worn off.

They're very nice aren't they? I usually go for the veggie ones.

I just received a minor rebuke from somebody at work who thinks they're authorised to rebuke me. For using apostrophes.

Apparently, apostrophes aren't 'target-group-appropriate'. I have no idea what this means.

Risk: the great arse-covering exercise of the New Millennium.


I embarked on a radical breakfast departure this morning. No bagel, no toast. Instead a bowl of SWR's Breakfast Surprise. It's not technically a surprise, as I made it for myself.

A bit of the branny fruity cereal.
A smaller amount of the expensive muesli
A handful of sultanas
A sprinkling of pine-nuts, the secret ingredient.

Oh, and milk.
