Listen in, listen Ian!
At work yesterday afternoon, I didn't really want to go home because I knew I'd finally have to deal with the big stack of washing up that was waiting for me there. Obviously though, I didn't want to stay at work all night instead, so I did go home and compromised by doing half of it, and leaving the other half for when I'm next home all night which will be tomorrow as I'm going to see Richard Herring tonight. Will I do it all tomorrow night? Tune in and see!

Posh food related things: I'm keen to organise a suckling pig trip to St John. Would anyone be interested if I did? I'm also excited because I'm going to Joel Robuchon's gaff on Thursday. I've been advised to "have the mashed potatoes whatever they come with" as they're the world's best. Which is some boast - I make pretty good mashed spuds myself. I'm looking forward to it though - I keep lookng at the menu on the website and drooling slightly.

Things that are making me laugh disproportionately at the moment:

Indonesian man loses his teeth in a cigarette explosion

For the line Police are investigating what caused the blast, but Mr Susanto said he would try to give up smoking now anyway.


Also, this bit of Wikipedia nonsense:

Robert David "Robbie" Keane (born 8 July 1980 in Tallaght, Dublin) is a train operating company that has operated local passenger services in the north of England since 2004.


Oh, the meeting the parents thing at the weekend went well. It was S's sister's (C) birthday, so it was a family trip (with the parents, C and her husband, S's aunt and uncle and their children (8 and 11). So, pretty much everyone. Bowling and then Pizza Express, and it was great, they're all lovely and friendly. So that was good.

Glad to hear that meeting the parents wasn't anything like the film.

I can eat many things but suckling pig really bothers me and I can't. It's piglet.

I think it's the 'suckling' part. I don't know if other baby animals are still suckling when they're killed - is this the case? but ugh, just hearing it makes me sad. Then again, I picture all meat being my kitty. /end veggie mithering.

Lamb just means young sheep (usually under a year old). You'll rarely get a sheep farmer mad enough to flog off two week old babies for meat because they're tiny and weigh nothing.

It perhaps shouldn't make a difference that something hasn't even been nearly weaned or even had a look around before you eat it but it does to me.

(lambs have quite small eyes btw)

bet they aren't. Bet they're as nasty to eat as shark fin (which makes my mate, who goes to S Korea a lot and has to eat all manner of terrible things, heave).
