I hope I get to see them this year
The options are jacket potato (risky, I can never seem to cook them), couscous (bit boring) or something from the corner shop.
Prickly it all over, rub in oil and salt and bake, turn it after 30 mins, take it out when it's crisp?
They go too soft and sweet. Doing them in the microwave at this house has proved disastrous though :/ well, not disastrous, but I have had a unevenly cooked potatoes. also the one time I used the oven the potatoes exploded. Yes, I did prick them.
Was the word novelty written on those potatoes?
Microwave potatoes are poo, unless you then bake them
Maybe cous cous would have been better?
And I'm giving the oven another try.
You having toppings?
Half of the skin was a bit burnt, but it was easy enough to not eat that but. The rest was well coed and sweet and lovely. I think I've been won over to the oven method. :D
A potato the size of a slipper will take about an hour right?
You can always stab it n see
IE. Oh, that's only three-quarts of a slipper, that won't be enough for a proper lunchtime jacket.
when we will order pizza and drink beer. What's the best pizza place in Reading in your opinion, p_o_r??
They posted out 50% off if you spend over £30 and never check the vouchers anyway. Other than that pizza places are all as bad as each other, I want to try herbies in Early, but never get round to it.
Think of it as surf n turf but more rock pool and processed
neither of them are options.
i just had a plate of noodles
Piri piri chicken. Watching last night's question time, and drinking peroni. :D
having a night in because i'm boring and my life is boring and also because i have to work at all day tomorrow
but now I have a headache and don't feel like it. :( I hope it goes away soon.
Cooking is the best (so are take aways)
i shall cook. it will be nommy and cheap
felt i should post about this somewhere and it didn't quite deserve its own thread. lost my spare room card (my original had broken and was in the process of being replaced) so i was locked out of my room and had nowhere to sleep. could have texted friends, didn't want to impose on people. went out. ended up sleeping on a camp bed in a girl's kitchen who i never met before in my life. very strange.
I am going to stick on a fire in a while and watch some films or read a book or something.
I was listening to out sketchy demos earlier, no production and not fully written but really rewarding knowing it is beginning to gel
It's pretty painful, mainly due to the pretentious lyrics.
This is the stuff I did just there, not well mastered.Going from Ableton to winamp to soundcloud.
Again I'll try to remember this thread and listen to this.
Lyrics and singing are the most troublesome.
a truly shit evening.
i get the bus to go to the cinema with my mate. get a text from him halfway there that he's not coming. ok. anyway he ends up coming and we get to the cinema to go to the previously alluded david lynch party. all sold out. no mention of this on their website. no answer when we phoned up to check. fucking twats.
fed up of everything slightly 'alternative' being run by useless, shoddy cunts with no respect for their audience. gigs running over their curfew. last minute cancellations. things starting hours after their finish time. orders being dispatched three weeks later than placed.
bet the team that run the cinema can't wait to go to ATP, where they can spend the whole weekend tweeting about how great the tv + swimming pool are before ruining jeff mangum for everyone by discussing how much they "improve the local community."
enjoyed it. pretty tense in places, and at least two horribly grim moments.
so i'm listening to massive killing capacity by dismember with no frequencies between 500Hz & 15kHz.
so I'm watching Starship Troopers.
I need a diary.
I'll probably switch over to Eternal Sunshine when it starts.
That guy who orders him to have the lashing is Hank from Breaking Bad. I do love Rawls though.
Not the first time I got those two mixed up.
