    Neither pea and ham soup nor any variety of lentil soup in stock, unfortunately. In fact, not a great variety of soup at all once I dug into the freezer, but plenty of chicken and barley. So that it was, and very nice too

    Further to the perusal of "The 2nd Sleep":

    My brothers has all been took by the army, sir, to fight the Northern Caliphate.'

    Fairfax nodded encouragingly. 'Brave lads, I'm sure.'

    That was a war that had gone on all his life and some said for centuries beforehand
    Making one wonder where this was until one reads

    tedious garriosn duty in some isolated Yorkshire moorland outpost


    joining in holy matrimony a Mr Anwar Singh, 'computer programmer', of Clerkenwell, London, to a Miss Julia Morgenstern, 'web designer' – an occupation surely for a spider rather than a human


    Sic transit gloria mundi after 800 years of post apocalyptic meltdown.

    And the puzzlement over what might have been "The Cloud".



    Then came a picture of one of the bitten-apple devices, its screen blank, followed by another with a skull-like face drawn on it, hands pressed to its cheeks, eyes and mouth both wide with horror.


    Indeed, imagine the state of affairs when the bitten apple devices don't work any more.

    Doomed etc.

    Tea: the last of Sunday's roast lamb with carrots & onions. With a shedload of pepper, hot smoked paprika, and some Marmite(tm) it finally tasted of something. 1.05 pints of good Glengettie tea.

    Entertainment: "ST VI: The Final Frontier The Undiscovered Country" being the final outing (not that sort of outing) of Ye Olde Gange before the new lot came along with "ST VII: Generations".

    Which proved to be most entertaining.

    dinner was fish pie <the usual cheats one>
    and some chablis.
    and more Hill st blues.
    now S1E8

    some of the septic angst is becoming irritating now, though.
    who'd've thought it'd be everywhere one day ? <now>

    Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
    Inertia, however........................

    Dinner was some delightful concoction HWMBO started on at lunch time. Something with beef ribs and barley that he saw on Serious Eats or some such.

    The rest of the ribs he bought yesterday are marinading in the fridge in something akin to Asian style marinade.

    I’ve had some lamb neck fillet, from Waitrose no less, lurking in the freezer since my Mum gave to to me in one of the food parcels she weighs me down with when I visit (well, when I leave after visiting). So tonight it was sacrificed to the deity Patak, making a very nice lamb rogan josh

    Has Belker bitten anyone yet?

    I see the pickpocket played by Nick Savage has shown up.

    The evening's 2nd feature was, indeed, "ST VII: Generations".

    Last one with The Wig Wearing War Criminal.

    Not as good as First Contact or The Undiscovered Country.

    Amusing enough, Guinan as a distinct plus.

    In rather more nauseating news, a thing on the Welsh news about some poor lamb (the woolly kind) that a pair of scumbags have deliberately blinded and broken its back.

    Hanging is too fecking good for some people.

    Tonight I went all in on Ófærð with S2E8, S2E9, and S2E10. A very good series, I thought

    Goodnight all
