A funny one (Brexit agony aunt):

Quote
I’m going to Portugal this week. Will I be able to get back on the 17th? Or will I have to stay there for ever?

This seems like a win-win scenario. Either Brexit is delayed and you get to return home, or you are forced to stay in the land of the pastel de nata. I’m not saying that I would renounce my citizenship of this country for the chance to live in the birthplace of this tasty, sweet treat, but all I’m saying is that it would be a conversation. I don’t know if you can claim asylum on the basis of “loving a cake”, but I am going to Google that now.

Wait until I tell him that you can be a citizen of both countries ;)
Anyway, I found them in Lidl, so I can safely stay ;D

I'm not a fan of covers with people, so you don't want my opinion, hehe (even from authors I love...)
Sorry

I checked All4 and realised that all 6 episodes are already available online :D

I am sure a HMV record player will play your old Bros vinyls fine.
;D Bros arrived already a bit later for me to really like them
I have them on my mixed tapes, though

And yes, I've been thinking and I think they'll do...
I'm really not a music person, I only have old stuff.

Oh the days before the internet...
You wanted something, you went into a shop and asked for it.
Now you start looking online, reading reports, reviews, and getting thoroughly confused about it ::)

I want to buy a simple record player, to play my old vinyl records from my teenage years. I saw a couple of promotions on HMV yesterday at the shop, but checking online it seems the products are bad and will ruin my records: now I don't know if that's the opinion of music purists, or if that's true in general...

I had managed to reduce my unread books pile to just 2, a Malazan and an old one: today I managed to increase it to 8 ::)

I got the other 2 books in Tchaikovsky's Echoes of the fall trilogy, One word kill (the new Mark Lawrence), Ed McDonald's Blackwing, Madeline Miller's Circe and Andrew Caldecott's Wyntertide (book 2 in the Rotherweird trilogy).

Oh, the stress of wanting to read all of them *now*...

I guess I'll only read the Malazan after these 6, because then I want 2 of them in a row.

And on other news, I've got new glasses: they're scarlet ;D

Has anyone been watching this series?
It's on E4 and SO funny ;D
About a group of gamers, part of it is set on a game, but it's different from other programs which have tried to use the setting.

It's kinda masochist, isn't it? You know that reading about them will make you mad and angry and all those bad things, but you can't stay away...
(also because you never know if in the middle of it all something will affect you directly, specifically)

On a plus, I got the notice I'm getting my £65 application fee back ::)

^ there's nothing like childhood food, although in my case I wait until my mum cooks them, rather than attempt to do them myself (hint: the result is never as good).
Saying that, there's a recipe from my grandmother with peas, chourico (bacon?) and poached eggs that I normally do (since it's so easy) but it never tastes as good as hers. Last week I found real portuguese chourico in Lidl, and yesterday's pot tasted almost as good! Success!

And Eli, how have your dance classes been going?
I live vicariously through you ;D
