Due to some scrambled eggs with crushed garlic and hot black coffee. BREAKFAST CRISIS AVERTED.
Garlic farmers mopped their tense, sweating brows.
Good work, Commander.
I'm jealous - I couldn't stomach breakfast this morning so I'm sat in my office, slightly damp and with a rumbly tummy :(
coffee was still available in terror-struck Britain.
None of the DiS amateur economists rose to my insouciance.
though now i want scramble eggs. one mans crisis averted is another mans whole new crisis.
THE SOUND OF KEYS TAPPING FURIOUSLY
I just hope a lot of people who are deeply objectionable suffer as a consequence of the global financial crisis. Is that misanthropic in any way?
Annoyingly there will still be objectionable people with Foals haircuts talking loudly to their flat chested girlfriends on the tubes in the morning when one is trying to read Priestley's 'An English Journey'.
Unless you think any involvement with Mammon incriminates you.
i can only imagine they will be the ones that get off scott free, and everone else gets done over
You guys are crossing the streams.
on a venn diagram, people who have made money from the actions that have created the current situation, not that nice, and unlikely to face big problems in the credit crunch.
Down with fat cats?
I feel like some sort of pug nosed pauper, pressed himself up against the window of the fancy restaurant you're dining in and looking on, longingly.
Speaking of which - Sara had dinner last night in the same restaurant as Liam Gallagher and Steve Redgrave. Crazy scenes.
and an orange
i ate them apologetically
this is 2000 and Gr8 after all. Sadly the objectionables usually have band of mum and dad backing so you hope they form part of some angry suicide pact, provided they're loathsome people, that is.
is this breakfast or lunch? I'd like to know where i stand on the issue. And no, 'brunch' is not a word.
I had breakfast at 6.45 as my daughter woke up at the time- I 'heart' early mornings when I wake up and look like Kiss but without the make up LOOL
No not at all - just like to be rude about horrible people from time to time and take close to my heart the people who are wonderful!
This is nice. DiS old skool having a normal conversation that doesn't involve date rape or what your favorite human orifice is, or how long it's been since _vikram got off his fat ass and left the house.
but it might just have been someone pointing out a person that looked like prole :)
ps. how are you?
At work eating pistachios and listening to Squarepusher.
i wish i could afford pistachios :(
I'm semi grown up now and currently 'off the scene' and being a AWESOME KEWL Dad and working on a project or something apparently - I last saw Brainers last year at a FOTB gig so I still exist!
Brainers is also right about old schoo dis too
thank heavens for a computer at work
sorry, it's probably because i was too shy to actually speak to you :)
I remember! Maybe you were drunk I'll let you off. Not really crazy just skiving at work as its Friday Friday Friday
so I imagine that wouldn't have been a problem - oh booh hooh!
apparently a met a lot of people at zonino that i have no memory of meeting. i'm lame.
i bet i wasn't even that drunk, i just have an awful memory. sorry!
I'm trying to archive in my brain what things I used to go do and they all get muddled and confused - all I remember is sticky beer and cigs.
then my residing memory is Hannah trying to force me to drink 'Cheeky Vimto'
I'm not sure if I want to know what "drinking Hannah's cheeky vimto" is a metaphorphor.
as Airwaves confirmed that the economic crisis has no bearing at all on the festival.
Other phenomena are also being reported that seem to indicate that the world continues to operate in a closely similar way to the time immediately before the economic crisis.
I'm not denying there will be ramifications, just that hysteria is pointless and the ramifications will unfold in due course. I think some people are enjoying this in the same kind of way that people enjoy TV wars, you know?
but has the index gone down now you realised you've lost your 'green headphones?'
There was a 7% last Saturday.
I heard a reporter on the World Service talking about the bailout in the US. The presenter asked him 'And what if this doesn't work? Is there a plan B?' and the reporter said 'If this rescue package fails then we can only pray'
