Disastrous times. The flask/mug thing I take with me to Sine FM Towers, the thing I brandish at errant cyclists, keep my pockets damp with and occasionally carry coffee in has befell a nasty accident. The handle's come off. No worries I thought. I can still carry it. I've lost the lid now. And I woke up this morning too late to make a coffee before I left. Breakfast show without coffee is a recipe for disaster.
The fast food place beginning with M would have to do. I know I slated their food, quite rightly, but the coffee's OK. Wrong! It would appear that the coffee only tastes good in comparison with the food so it failed trying to stand on it's own merits. To paraphrase the late, great Douglas Adams it tasted almost, but not entirely, unlike coffee.
And just to carry on some more, the much maligned bacon roll now comes with the tagline 'new, improved flavour!' Surely a bacon roll is bread and bacon. How do you drastically improve on that? Unless they've finally brought a pig into the equation.
Whilst we're talking food I'm now the proud owner of a small bunch of bananas thanks to my friend Nettie Spaghetti's selling skills. (Only 29p - that's all it took).
I was asked again yesterday to regale you with a rock 'n' roll tale. Don't ask me who by 'cos I just made that up. We've already had the face off with Liam Gallagher yarn. I shall leave it up to you to choose:
A: Food fight with Def Leppard
B: John Lydon's f**k off t-shirt or
C: Wayne Hussey trying to steal my invisible hat.
Two secs. Daughter No.1 on the phone with her results.
:-) Proud father mode. She got what she needed.
Right, work tonight and a band rehearsing here later. Can you keep it down please Spyder? If there's napping to be done I better do it now.
