So much things to say about gravy


It is time to write again.

What intellectual avalanche should I address today?

Sexuality? The child youth problem? Sponges? Pornography? Jeremy Beadles death? Brittany’s demise? The American election? Waitangi day? Movies that contain only b-actors? Banana etiquette and the most efficient way to peel them? Tail gators and their eventual evolutionary extinction? Cellotape? Used tea spoons? The meaning of life? Chaos theory? Kerry Prendergast’s fantastic eye wear? The colour watermelon. The taste of black? Music that makes you feel wobbly? Rock stars that make your shake you head with disdain? Lions? Tigers? Bears? Obana? Osama? Obama? The Monarchy? The sports that most resemble the antics of Gladiatorial Rome? Sun glasses? The lack of truly memorable Disney movies at the moment? Our ever expanding universe? The scientific tradition of explaining the physical but never the spiritual? Paper clips? Male pattern baldness? Plastic trophies? Las Vegas? The melting of the Polar ice caps? Chocolate with chilli? Milli Vanilli? Madagascar? Alaska? Used tissue? Rook to King 4? Brown paper bags? The death of human innocence? The lies we buy into? Pencil sharpener shavings? The power of an encouraging remark? Death? Politics? Laughter? Pain? The one person that matters at the end of the day? The truth? The Lies? Gaviscon & pork pies? Apples? Pears? Bananas in pyjamas running down the stairs?

Hmmm – You know I don’t feel like writing about any of that stuff…

But I will say this - I do like cheese on toast. It tastes quite nice.

Boy you dropped a question avalanche!

You should pick the question that most "gets your goat" each time you blog and write about it.

Oh and what does gravy have to do with cheese on toast - the 2 important bits of your post :P

I'm actually glad you brought these questions up. For instance, i have been tormenting over the idea of my distaste for people who wear sunglasses in the middle of the winter, at 7pm, in a tube tunnel.

And what up with those damn monkeys peeling their bananas the wrong way around.. i mean, honestly...

I've never tried cheese on toast with gravy on it...
That's probably for the best.

Wait wait wait... haven't you guys figured out that any type of food ANYWHERE can always be improved by adding more hot gravy? It's the dip-de-doo of dips! Hence the phrase "OMG DATS 2TALEE GRAVY KTHXBYE!"

And this is coming from a gowermette chef..

Wow Fiddy - Such mellifluous words - Wisdom so scarce in this day and age. And uttered in such dulcet guttural murmurs.
