I went to the post office today to return an unwanted jumper for my other half (he said it looked weird when he tried it on, and I agreed). Then on the way back I bought some glasses (the drinking kind - we're always breaking them) and some bread and eggs. Tonight we're having pizza.

Just sprinkled the last of the crispy onions on my salad for dinner.

Just ate a Baxter's carrot and coriander soup and now I'll do some studying (probably interspersed with pootling on the internet).

Did some marking, then used new fabric cutting machine to makes strips out of old jeans. This caused a LOT of fluff, which I then had to hoover up with the hand held.

I finally get it - this thread is an homage to Existentialism! :D

Am I right or am I right?

Existentialism was a fuckwit idea anyway. :p

I won't give a Wiki link in case this post becomes interesting...

It's inexorably turning into a foodie thread, as these things tend to do...

I would say it's more a celebration of the quotidian, as a means of bonding. Georges Perec would be proud, and he definitely wasn't a fuckwit.

Or maybe it's just, y'know, fun to have a bit of a laugh about the boring things we do, day in, day out... :rolleyes:

I finally got round to using my rotary cutting machine and made lots and lots of fabric strips from old jeans - now I have lots of denim fabric strips and fluff.

I emptied the vacuum cleaner, managing to inhale about three tonnes of dust in the process. Now I have a cough.

I bought a spare battery for my go pro. Unfortunately it was for the later model and wouldn't fit so I returned it immediately and got my money refunded.
Went to another shop where they said they had two left but after 10 minutes they said they couldn't find them.
Wanted to buy the latest Sherlock Holmes game yesterday but they only had the box... No disc.

All in all, a mildly disappointing attempt at consumerism this weekend.

I don't have any shallots, but I do have some small but strong onions.
So I must have a cheese and onion sandwich for supper. :)

An excellent choice. Have recently become enamoured of red onions and find them particularly efficacious in a toasted sandwich.
