Listen in, listen Ian!
I bought a sandwich toaster at lunchtime, mainly because they're so cheap.|
Argos have one for £4.97 - at a price like that for high
quality1 gadgetware you just have to buy buy buy
really.Sorry, the environment. Toasted sandwiches for tea
then - hot dog, cheese and sweetcorn perhaps.
A few weeks ago there was discussion in the comments of one of my posts
about the origins of the phrase 'X, you magnificent b@stard.' which turned
out to be from some war film or other. That wasn't where I knew if from,
obviously, and I suspected I knew it from Seinfeld. I found out last week
that I did, it's from the episode where Jerry is in competition with his
girlfriend's step-mother for the number 1 spot on her speed dial and when
he achieves it he says to himself, "Seinfeld, you magnificent b@stard!" So
now you know.
