I hate that too. We have a  guy that goes up and down our residential street on his motorbike reaching 90+kmph. Dork.

Get some spike strips.

Or a length of cheese wire.  :shock: :nah:

Jolliness, bravado, smiles.. Christmas.
Ignoring the elephant in the room.
"p*** me off" isn't right. It more makes me feel odd and hollow.

My Aunt who is so strong has secondary (thirdary?) cancer and being amazingly brave. Everyone is being brave.
The atmosphere is peculiar, but what is the alternative? Sulking, wailing and defeat, I guess..

Parents should be immortal, my cousins are a year or two younger than me, I'm only 23.. I cannot imagine how it feels.
I'm not respectable, and never sensible - I've been incredible, so damned irascible..
..and I like the things I do, so hooray for me.

Lorry drivers who dont know how high their vehicles are and keep demolishing the end of the canopy at work. This one was an agency driver for a local firm - I can just imagine the phone conversation yesterday :
"have you got any work today ?"
"two words F**K Off !"
I reckon the the insurance claim is going to run into quite a few thousand due to 15 hours lost sales for the filling station plus the damage as all the metal work is individually ordered with specialist paint from Germany. Hate to see what the insurance premiums for the lorry firm will be next year !
I didn't mind the night shift with no customers - but was getting a fed up with people asking "what hit the canopy ?" my favourite sarcastic reply was "An irate Bolivian Traffic Warden on a space hopper !"  :lol:
Heaven doesn't want me. Hell is afraid i will take over !

Lessons learned:

1. Research the cost of free-range poultry before ordering.

2. Save up for next year's.

3. Then get a frozen one instead.

made an expensive error then?  Wait until you go for 'Free Range Organic Fed' ... you would need a 2nd mortgage!

Aldi are selling fresh ones for 19.99
A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

There's a big family meal on thr 28th and part of me wants to go, part of me slightly doesn't, because it might be really odd.

:D  I ordered a goose from a farm shop weeks ago, asked the price but they didn't know how much until they got them in.  Then I watched that bugger Jimmy Doherty on TV, talking about how a scrawny free-range turkey would set you back 60, and I did something like this:  :faint:
I should've phoned during the last couple of weeks, but I waited and fretted 'til today.  40.  Not cheap, but not as bad as my worst imaginings.  Good thing I only ordered a small one.

New year's resolution: put another sock under the mattress.  Label it 'goose'.  :lol:

You're right about organic birds, too.  Whoof.

Also: sorry Gothy.  I know something about how that feels.  Makes worrying about pricey poultry look daft.

Not being able to find my nice new android phone

Then ringing home and my wife telling me she can see it in the road, it must have fallen out of my pocket when I got in the car this morning

Then her telling me it looks like I ran over it when I drove away...

I feel your pain...

My wife never asked the cost before ordering.  A goose to feed 6...we picked it up yesterday...76-00!

All I can say is, I hope the butcher doesn't trip over his gold plated door step as he enters his marble clad porch!

...mind you...if it tastes as good as the one last year, I can almost believe I can stop crying about it ;)...

Blimey. At that price, are you sure there's not a golden egg inside it? Best check before you put it in the oven.

i hate to say it but if you want a decent Goose thats what youll be looking at, they arnt a popular as turky so there less "mass produced" meaning unit costs tend to be higher.  and the taste is that much better, and you get the goose fat to cook with.
 but Ive been getting goose for abought a decade, and the descion is that the price is worth it... ( YMMV)

I agree...the goose was worth every penny (it tasted great :) ).

Me sprouts tasted like they'd been cooked with mustard.  Blergh!  What happened there?  I'm going to guess not enough boiling with too much frying.

Third day of tripping up over passive-aggressive sisters; it's starting to wear thin.

You should never meet your heroes, or read their books.  Got the River Cottage Meat Book yesterday, and I'm finally starting to go off Hugh's condescending preaching.  (And preaching and preaching and preaching... get to the recipes already!)*

Page 130, though...

There is one obvious and unavoidable objection to my plea for a fresh start - that free range poultry is so much more expensive.  And as for organic birds - well, you'd better take out a second mortgage to get one of those.

:)

Me own goose wasn't too bad either - nice 'n' moist, surprisingly beefy.

There was a day last year when, while riding my bike along the towpath by the river, I was accosted by an overly territorial goose. The only two places to go were over the goose or into the river. So I was forced to run over Mr Goose and then wring his neck to put him out of his misery.

On the plus side, he made a great Sunday lunch. Cheap, too. Though I did get some funny looks riding home through Walthamstow with a dead goose slung over my handlebars.

I once met one of my favourite SF authors. Not only arrogant but he made a pass at my then girlfriend in front of me!
