What the HELL is wrong with you?
Just zoom in, you myopic bastards.
There were about four words on each line. It was pretty much unreadable.
i had some really good pasta the other day at paradiso. might recreate it tomorrow (garlic, basil and tomato sauce, extra onion, tuna).
pretty much prevents any sandwich making
You have my condolences.
without realising i could have made a CRUMPET SANDWICH
add whatever other ingredient you have available
i recommmend spinach
Grilled cheese is what they call a cheese toastie outside the UK.
a grilled cheese sandwich in the US is made in a frying pan
go play with your kids or something, NEGLECTFUL DAD
He's on the sofa watching Crank 2
did you know they've made a TV series of The Transporter? Except Jason Statham ISN'T in it, thus disproving my theory that he'll appear in any old shit offered to him.
As have many people I know. It's still a cheese toastie.
Do you think a pinafore would be acceptable?
Is it acceptable for grown women to wear pinafores at all?
loads of them are doing it at the minute. well, they're in the windows of shops so i'd assume so.
So I could claim the money back from work.
I wore a pinafore in 6th form and it was well good. I might go pinafore shopping on Saturday.
I feel like I'm too old to ask her to do this though.
I can't even sew a button back on my shirt ffs.
i'll start one tomorrow
Rexxx, Hollywood's top canine star, gets lost and is adopted into a shabby firehouse. He teams up with a young kid (Hutcherson) to get the station back on its feet. He is killed in the line of duty and receives a hero's burial
but haven't watched it
NO POINT NOW :(
mind it's pretty possible the dog will peg it I think
I'll be honest, it's not great.
has been vandalised. Apparently it knew all about its master's depravity and yet failed to tell the authorities.
I'm not sure how I feel about that.
See also: rice
Eat a piece every few minutes throughout cooking. Stop when you eat a bit you like.
that's the question....
I thought you meant just enough cooking time, not just enough quantity.
Have you tried weighing it?
rice - 2/3 of a standard whiskey glass per person
it's gotta be the right sized mug though
i like 100g but i'm chubs
curves in all the right places ;) x
With Rice it is half a mug per adult human.
With Pasta, fill your bowl to the volume of food you'd wish to eat, then take out a adult human fistful.
thank you for specifying human. i was about to get my cat
Cats can't make a fist. Wouldn't work
tell that to my black eye!
how much money should i put in?
if it's a note people don't think you're a tightwad
the other two are like planes basically
I was bored though and couldn't stop copying and pasting.
after one pint of cider?
and drink cider slowly
and is it as complicated as it seems?
Totally clueless at the moment but I'd like to have a go at it.
Depends on the venue and the bands, doesn't it?
but the two gig & club nights I put on I made money each time.
But don't do it for the money, bro.
It really depends on the venue, the city, and whether the band(s) are travelling from overseas and are on a tour.
I dunno, to fill that size, maybe £200 for the venue (including the soundguy), £500 for a headliner, £250 for one support, and maybe £60-£100 second support. Add in publicity (posters/flyers) at about £60 and you've got a total of c£1070.
Assume a break even at around 70% of capacity (if you've judged the venue size right), and so you're looking at tickets in the region of £8adv/£10 door, I guess.
Any more people in over the 70% you could profit share between yourselves and the bands or venue if they wish.
Never put on a gig unless you can afford to lose all that money yourself.
on a 1-10 scale of drunk, how drunk should I be?
I jest. You best have a few. But try and be angry/awake drunk rather than sleepy drunk.
the radio broadcast is from one of the bars. so there'll be PLENTY (well, some) people in there I can annoy.
WHITE RUSSIANS FOR ALL
Concentrating sobers you up and you want to be finishing up at about a 6. Any lower than that and you'll be fed up/asleep by the end. Of course, if you can drink during the show just reverse the numbers and go in as a 6 and leave an 8.
Can I buy a little plastic holder so it will fit or will I have to get a new sim?
and ask them for one. they might give you one for free - that's what i did and they were happy to help.
How do you stop shirts from gaping across your chest?
I've tried a safety pin but it just puckers and looks weird.
Always remember that.
Will Irene laugh if I take a shirt that needs a button replacing too?
At risk f being sexist, do you not know any girls? Girl friends know how to sew buttons on and won't laugh at you and won't charge, probably.
Because my boss has.
if people clubbed round to buy me a bottle of jura and 2 bottles of wine and 9 ales and a subscription to national geographic magazine and a packet of tangfastics and a book about murders in lancashire?
and I said, 'what about cake mix?' and he looked at me like I was some sort of genius and just said, 'no, that's somehting different' and didn't explain any further...
So how come when whisked eggs are heated they turn into a solid?
a solution or whatever it's called. apparently they are two different things. like that mix is mix and when you pour salt into water it's not a mix, it's something else
But if you heated them enough then each of the components would turn into a gas. Although in practice if you tried that in air it'd all catch fire long before anything reached its boiling point.
The heat input when you bake a cake is sufficient to promote chemical reactions between the various constituents which then form different, solid chemicals. Whereas heating water to greater than 100 degrees involves changing its state from liquid to gas, but not causing it to chemically react with anything. It's still water molecules.
I'm still at work.
