    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    My uncle had a kitten when I was a teen and his four under 8 kids would chase the poor thing around. So I took to putting on my shoulder to keep it out of the way. Well I guess the kitten liked it there because one afternoon the kids were chasing it and it ran straight up my leg onto my shoulder using its claws to make the climb. It's a lesson in making pets too comfortable.

    Perfect roast potatoes. Peel potatoes and cut into largish chunks. Boil in salted water until yielding. Add enough duck or goose fat into a roasting tin and place in hot oven, 200-210C, until smoking. Drain potatoes and pour into hot pan. Roast for about 30 minutes until potatoes are golden, turning a couple of times to ensure even cooking. Season to taste.

    Whoops. 200 is centigrade. 200 Fahrenheit would take hours to roast. 200C is about 424F. Sorry for any confusion.

    The Sounds of Sherlock

    BBC offers a look at actors who portrayed Sherlock on the radio over the years. A little thin, but still the sound clips offer an interesting look at the how people have heard Sherlock. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1Ff9YmF65jHxFzjyRpfMBgL/the-sound-of-sherlock

    5 minutes? What are you steaming them in. The cooling tower of a nuclear reactor? You can't have a Sunday roast without sprouts. It's not possible. Anyway, I like to roast them in the oven at 200 for about 30 minutes until they smell sort of nutty. Then into a pan with some water and a knob of butter. Cook fast until all the water boils away and the butter glazes the sprouts. Yumm.

    Delicious with rice, naan, and a bowl of dahl. Most Indian is 50% salt I think.

    As with any competent woman, her husband is merely a puppet and extension of her will. If he knows what's good for him anyway.

    Obtuse. On another note, I came within a hair's breadth of quitting my job today. After following rules and guidelines set down by my boss and employer I received a dressing down for following said guidelines because, apparently, they didn't work as intended when applied. Apparently I was supposed to follow the guidelines, but 'know' they were wrong and correct accordingly. Wanker.

    It all comes down to seeing their name on the page. The question and the answer are immaterial. They just like seeing their name. Cretins.

    Early Man. Nick Park's latest offering and it's a treat. I've been a fan since A Grand Day Out and this is no exception. It will bear many viewings.

    Is this the right room for an argument?

    I've never noticed any peanuts in my Bombay mix.

    The Foreigner. I had heard that this film wasn't very good, but they were completely wrong. Jackie Chan is outstanding as a distraught father seeking justice for his murdered daughter and Pierce Brosnan is perfect as an ex-IRA arsehole protecting himself. It is a very good film in fact.

    A poke in the eye might be more fitting.
