    Today's helpful hint for Taiwanese scientific researchers: if you do not have an extremely good command of English do not even ATTEMPT to use obscure words or IDIOMS in your reports. Reading about chemical intermediates in enzymatic reactions "GOING HAYWIRE" is just going to ANNOY your FRIENDLY EDITOR. Thank you :)

    Hello Moopy.

    I’m actually suicidal at the thought of going to work tomorrow. God I need a new job.

    I'd have to magically become 20 years younger and move to London, both of which are HIGHLY UNLIKELY

    I thought the D**LY MAIL was bad but I've just been down the EXPRESS website. Talk about FROTHING. And the comments are even WORSE. No wonder the country is in such a STATE.

    I went down an internet rabbithole this morning in an effort to get to grips with Mr F's new no-fat/lowest-fat diet and I have one question; why do Quorn products contain more total fats than the meat I was trying to replace?

    If he liked fish this would be so easy. How can anybody just throw out a blanket statement of "I don't like fish" when all fish tastes different and has different textures?

    Slightly odd retro weekend, quite aside from having Stereolab on the turntable. I was working with a chunk of my old team on Saturday and then headed to a gig by someone I first saw play 14 years ago and then today, lunch with a friend from not my old job but the one before that. The latter two were delightful, the first oddly untroubling.

    Confused as to which year it is.

    My ALL VEGAN NO FUN diet starts next week so I will be howling in commiserate pain with Mr Shirley.

    Fuck knows why I signed up for this though and ever thought this was a good idea given that I swear by the premise that there is not a single dish that isn't made better by slapping a pork chop on top of it.

    It's going to be a VERY LONG WEEK.
