Listen in, listen Ian!
I want to write about What I Did On My Holidays, obviously, but I need to sort out and upload a vast pile of photos first. Here's a brief introduction based on a few photos I took with my phone though.

Here's somebody's take on the Heathrow experience:


Here's North American wilderness from the sky:

Some bit of North America from a plane

Here's the USA v Honduras:

And here's some bacon in a supermarket. Om:


Crappy American convenience food in supermarkets continues to put ours to shame. The best thing I saw there, but didn't buy as it was only available in vast tubs was Philadelphia Key Lime flavour ready to eat cheesecake filling. I don't know about you, but that sounds amazing.

You had a good view of the tiny pixie people at the game then.

I did enjoy your disquisition on baseball on Lollards, by the way. Despite not maintaining a great interest in sport, it was a fine discussion.

They sell Cheesecake FILLING? That's impressive.

Haha, premade cheesecake filling -- just when you thought humanity couldn't get any lazier! Though actually, there's already an EVEN LAZIER product on the market already: premade peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts cut off the bread. They seem to be entirely made of preservatives and look kind of like two fused-together communion wafers with peanut butter and some possibly fruit-based product inside. o_O

Thing is, I'm pretty sure I'd never use this to make cheesecake - I'd just eat it with a spoon.

Mmm, cheesecake.

Yeah, that's probably all it's really good for. If you put it in a cheesecake, it'd be a disappointing cheesecake.

I think that food companies and their ad firms think that working moms who are too busy to bake for their kids will feel better if they can give their families "homemade" stuff like this using shortcuts. Which is dumb, of course, because food isn't the best way to show someone you love them. Not that I'd say no to it, though. They do the same thing when advertising disposable plates -- by acting like busy working moms can spend more time with their families if they throw their dishes away instead of washing them. :/
