I can recommend saving your money and not buying a KFC double down meal - what a disappointment!

^ You couldn't ask for them in a shop though.

'Excuse me, do you have any Itsu crispy seaweed thins, wasabi flavoured?'
'Get out before I hurt you.'

You know, if that's how people bought things in shops.

And if the shop assistant was extremely rude and unprofessional.

You know what, now I've thought about it, you probably could ask for them in a shop.

^ My local Sainsbury's has multipacks of them. And I once picked up a single pack in a small Tescos in London.

^^ You don't know me! For one I tend to start speaking to shop assistants with a 'hi there', not an 'excuse me', as if I'm a shop assistant greeting someone at the door. I'm not sure when it started, but I can't seem to not do it.

Obviously with a greeting like that they'd be so charmed they'd likely fetch them for me and even waive the carrier bag fee, because I'm clearly a man who always derserves convenient conveyance at no extra cost.

If you email Yorkshire Tea they might send you a sample? They really do taste good, IMHO.

If they won't do that buy a box anyway, they only come in boxes of 40 I think it is. Only cost 2 at Morrisons. You can always give them away to a food charity if you don't like them.

If anyone's thinking of buying a small, versatile, high quality speaker that's not gonna piss the neighbours off too much, then you won't go far wrong with the Riva S -






It's not got fantastic exterior looks, fair enough, but the guts are where it's at. I've had this little gadget for well over a year and, even though i'm always in the market for portable speakers, i can't find anything worthy of it's replacement, you'd have to go for the mains-powered speakers to find it's upgrade. You get exceptional sound quality anywhere you take it, and it's even better when plugged to mains. At 120 it's hard to beat.

Aeropress coffee brewers. If you like coffee, obviously. It's a bit like a french press but uses air to ram the coffee through a filter. Kind of a hipstery thing but they really do make a nice cup.

^ I once got a great deal on BT broadband through them: i don't know how, but i got 170 cashback (from Quidco) and a 150 Sainsbury's voucher from BT - totalling it up i paid very little over the year contract.

I know, it's ridiculous - all said and done, i'm not even sure the contract cost me anything! I've just checked my Quidco history to see whether my memory serves me right and, yep, it's there - 170 paid. I remember the Sainsbury's voucher came through by post.

Even saving a few quid is better than nothing, it's no hassle using the site - good luck with your future purchases!

Saying 'da' in a deep, moderately contemptuous Russian accent instead of 'yes'.

I also enjoy saying da, but in Romanian. It is very satisfying.

The book 'Diary of a Nobody' by George and Weedon Grossmith.

Rapidly becoming my favourite book of all time and I've read a lot of books. Just thoroughly delightful.

^ I read that a couple of months back. 'Tis proper funny - especially the 'jokes'.

I think the only book that's made me laugh out loud more is David Sedaris's Naked. (A Plague of Tics still kills me now, even on what would now be a double-digit rereading.)

The ''jokes" are the best part! ''Smocking is all the rage. I said it puts me in a rage.''

''Lor! How we roared!''

The 1960 Jack Lemmon film The Apartment.

If you could do with something gentle and heartwarming, just watch it. It's the most adorable thing ever.

If a bloke ever brings me spaghetti on a tennis racquet, I'm gonna propose marriage.

Drinking smoothies straight from the bottle (cos there's always too much left clinging to the inside of a glass/cup).

^ Oooooh, that gives me something good to listen to while working this week. Thanks!



I've probably recommended her before, but Contrapoints continues to tickle me greatly. Her discussions of various current issues pull on a wide range of philosophical/sociological thought and are littered with insightful and funny asides. And the production values (and outfits) are second to none.

Her latest is about conspicuous consumption, stylistic taste and class (and a few other things too).
