  1. I acquired this a while back, but only got around to opening it over Christmas. It's very nice. Went online to see what I could find out about it. Turns out you can't really buy it new any more; it's only available on auction sites and resellers where the going rate seems to be about £600 a bottle . I'm all like...
  2. But still, £1.27(!) for essentially Rich Tea? When? What? How? I love Bahlsen biscuits!
  3. What's really shocking in this thread is the number of people who admit to eating at Burger King. Skanky beyond belief.
  4. I was bored so I made a Google map of all the places in Its Grim Up North, if you're interested. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1wyAmagWlXuh7eJjRnaufKoe4QFs_go_O&usp=sharing
  5. That's very nice - tooling along to the sounds of somebody reading the shipping forecast!
  6. I capped her in the head deliberately many time out of sheer annoyance. Mind you the first time I played Goldeneye I also deliberately shot Trevelyan upon meeting him in the tank room ("Why James, why?").
  7. My 12yo daughter still likes reading books with me at bedtime. I'm sure it won't last much longer, but... I'm looking for recommendations as to what we can read next as we're coming to the end of our current series. We're currently reading the Charmed Life series by Dianne Wynn Jones which we are enjoying greatly. And over the last year or so we've read and enjoyed: - The Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula Le Guin - Barimaeus and Lockwood series by Jonathan Stroud (both immeasurably superior to Harry Potter) - The five books that make up The Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper. Any ideas or inspiration for what might be next?
  8. It's not really helping me concentrate on my spreadsheets...
  9. Does yours have the insane difficulty curve like mine does. Mine has four levels. Level 1 is stuff like "1*3", level 3 ramps it up a bit - "8*6". Level 4's opening gambit - "34*28".
  10. While we're back in the 1980s, I found this at the back of a wardrobe over the weekend. Popped a battery in it and it works perfectly after 35 years in a cupboard.
  11. 12 Inches of Snow is the best album title.
  12. How could we forget Hardcore Uproar by Together?
