I've just made a big pot of coconut dahl for dinner tonight (and lunch tomorrow). The house now smells delicious and that, combined with the damp, cold weather, is making me crave comfort food.

As a fan, I heard about that, because the fan sites were talking about it. It seems that Disney didn’t insert it so he may be incorrect there. It’s from a ‘high quality’ cut Lucas did before he left, which was going to be released in 3D.

Lucas is obsessed with fixing that scene for some reason and he should he left it as it was.

disagree! but the competition for worst is fierce

At least Star Wars is hopefully on the upturn again. As someone not averse to some clasical music, Im enjoying the music from the new stuff. You might like this Sonic, some nice storyboard art included, apologies to people here who dont like Star Wars. O0

Tomorrow Dusseldorf.

My third visit to Germany in five months, this time I'm off to spend €150,000.

Any bets?

Post by Joan » 1 month ago

I'm trying to watch my diet, and I love a bargain. Needed a snack on the road, so looked in the healthy section. A single serve of this was 90p, but 4 serves is £1.50, so bought the bag. I have taken what I thought was a scant 1/4, plus a couple. I shall try not to snack again before I reach hime, whence I will see how much is left with my trusty drug dealer scale.

There should be 3 servings (around 90g). Anyone want to guess what the actual amount will be?

Just had a big win at work. I’ve been managing a formal dispute and we’ve just been told the adjudication has gone entirely in our favour.

This is big brownie points for me, as I’ve done all the work without input from Legal.

I’m going to celebrate with a gin!

That is of course, always the answer.

In this case, I stiffed myself to the tune of 10g!! Scoffed now, and searching the fridge for more food.....

A good plan, assuming it wasn't gin that got you into trouble in the first place,

I know right, the problem is I saw your post and thought,
"Ooooo, hello, I'll have a guess at that, ummmm, 40, nope, let's go for 42."
Typed it in and then realised what I'd done unintentionally, but I was committed by then and couldn't cope with guessing again.

Nope. Incompetence and intransigence by one or two CCG people have been the cause. Now this decision has gone against them, I could see departures in their futures... which would be a good thing for patients.
