    What Are You Eating & Drinking?

    I didn’t realise you have to store a nearly empty marmite jar on its side to make sure you don’t miss any?

    So What Were YOUR Erroneous Childhood Beliefs?

    I was! Mum took us to see him as Hans Christian Anderson at the London Palladium. And his school near to the south side of Tower Bridge joined with another school near to Millwall FC to become the Scott Lidgett School in Drummond Road which was my secondary school. “Inch worm, inch worm...

    Are You SUPERFLUOUS?

    I’m definitely superfluous. After years of hard work and study to become a chartered professional it has dawned on me that all the youngsters, fresh out of school/Uni/College, along with the elder micro managers all know how to do my job far better than I do.

    So What Were YOUR Erroneous Childhood Beliefs?

    In the spirit of the original post that started this thread, as a young boy I did actually believe there was a little man in the fridge who turned the light on when you opened the door! Ah! Innocence.

    Humour & Jokes

    A Tourette’s charity wants an apology for the joke voted best one of the Edinburgh fringe this year. The gag goes like this: "I keep randomly shouting out 'Broccoli' and 'Cauliflower' - I think I might have florets". Should an apology be forthcoming or should the charity accept the joke as...

    The Shit Thread: Excremental Discussion

    When my kids were babies I couldn’t go near a nappy or puke without heaving, I tried, honestly I tried, but I would end up with a half cleaned baby lying on the floor whilst I was calling god on the big white telephone. Latterly when my sons wife started to produce I would do the grandad...

    What Are You Eating & Drinking?

    Same as lamb shanks, monkfish and all the other cheaper foodstuffs. Even breast of lamb is no longer as cheap as it used to be. When I had Great Danes a few years back the butcher used to sell it for pennies and I used it to bulk them up when they went on a self imposed diet and looked like...

    Spent a couple of hours in day therapies having infliximab administered to hold the Crohn’s at bay. Bit of a shit as I spent yesterday (yes Sunday) having an MRI scan in the same hospital. I’m getting a little tired of hospitals at the moment.

    Ever Met Anyone Famous?

    I knew Olly Murrs when he was young as he played football with my eldest son. I introduced him to my current wife just as he was becoming well known. We had been to a funeral that day and it cheered my wife no end to meet him. I must say fame hasn’t gone to his head and he remains a nice bloke.

    Identifying Some 1970s Supernatural TV Dramas (UK)

    I remember liking Ace of Wands from the 70’s with the lead actor being called Tarot. It probably kickstarted my interaction with the cards themselves.

    Kidney Stones

    I believe you or another stone-martyr mentioned in an earlier post how difficult it is to describe the pain. It is one of those conditions you have to experience to “appreciate” it. (Wise old sages start sucking on pipes, slowly nodding to show understanding)

    Words & Phrases You Never Want To Hear Again

    It’s a bastardised bit of rhyming slang. Aristotle = bottle, bottle and glass (mistakenly) Arse. Bottle and Khyber became interchangeable at some point.

    I was on a train recently, nice quiet part of the carriage, just me and an older guy reading our papers when we were invaded by a gang of yummy mummies and their little “dahlings”.

    Where Do You Shop For Your Fortean Books?

    This is where I bought all my Fortean/magic books back in the day. I remember buying a book there, which one I cannot recall but very likely to be about Crowley or The Golden Dawn, and on reading it found a reference to the shop itself. I hadn’t appreciated how long the shop had been there...

    Words & Phrases You Never Want To Hear Again

    “Bottle” in rhyming slang is “bottle and glass” = Class. It was associated with boxing, i.e., “he’s got some bottle” or “he’s lost his bottle”. May mean different things across various London boroughs but that was the meaning in Bermondsey/Walworth when I was growing up there.

    Popular Songs That They Couldn't Write Now

    Not sure if this has been raised before but Pass The Dutchie by musical youth was an adaptation of an earlier version of Pass The Kouchie by The Mighty Diamonds. A Dutchie is a cooking pot, i.e., Dutch Oven, whilst a Kouchie is also a pot...but one you keep your Ganja in. It’s all Jamaican to me.
