How are you spending the Lord’s day, Phoenix?
I don't pray to your false infidel idols so I'm working.
Well "working" tbh
And what pacifically does your line of work entail?
Hey bubs. I am ridiculously hungover today, and plan to lounge on the sofa waiting impatiently on the chinese opening.
Never had a Chinese opening, myself, Rita, but it sounds lovely.
What is your Chinese takeaway dish of choice doggy?
Partial to those very soggy soft noodles, an eggy fried rice, but being the heathen that I am I mainly enjoy the Chinese shop chips with curry sauce.
Being a vegetarian, it’s never nice seeing the whole pig being delivered to the takeaway which, having lived close to a Chinese before, is a regular sight.
How about yourself?
I live near to a Chinese and I'm vegetarian too
You have just made me feel rather queasy. I may not bother after all.
Good afternoon! I had my annual day at the Edinburgh Fringe yesterday, and I know everyone says it but it really is absolutely disgusting trying to get anywhere - we almost got run over on a zebra crossing, which resulted in some quite off-brand shouting and hooting on my part.
The stuff I saw was fun though! First up was a play called Harpy, a poignant one-woman show about a tragic hoarder and how she ended up in her situation... also, she was played by none other than SU POLLARD I thought she was marvellous throughout (there are comedy moments but also plenty of pathos, which she handled well) but my friend felt that her performance was too similar to her turn in the Hunter Vac advert to be convincing
Later I saw a play called Tilda Swinton Answers A Craigslist Ad, which is probably quite self explanatory! Basically a suicidal gay man gets visited by Tilda Swinton looking to rent a room/research him for a role, and there are all sorts of developments from there. Tilda was played by Tom Lenk (AKA Andrew from Buffy) and was great fun, even though the performance was basically pinched from those Chloe Sevigny youtube videos from years ago.
Finally we went to see a night of electronic music, which was largely baffling and impenetrable but SOPHIE was there doing a DJ set which was amazing. I also discovered that cyber goths are still a thing I didn't get home until 5am, A+ 10/10 would do it again.
Sorry, loves. It is bloody ghastly, but the meat-eater I used to be would go to town on a Moo Shu pork, so don’t let me stop you.
How long have you been a vegetarian, Star? Ever enjoyed a pork product?
I had to Google whether this was all real or just a homosexual’s fever dream. Anything with a whiff of the Drew Dreoge Chloe Sevigny is a surefire winner in my opinion.
Since I was 16, so about 5 years now. I'm not sure I've ever had pork though. I only really miss harbio sweets.
It’s the sweets that creep up on you though, with the beef gelatine. Some marvellous marshmallows (Princess or Prince’s brand, not sure) from Boyes that I no longer touch but crave constantly.
They do try these days and M&S have a good selection of substitutes (the veggie Percy pigs are my fav). But the smell of harbio still gets me
Started the day mildly hungover and went to an Abbey to walk the dog. Boom.
Still waiting for my mother to dish up her overcooked roast. She'll never learn.
You can get veggie Haribo now, can't you?
I'd love a roast cooked by somebody else, overcooked or not. Sadly the only roast I'll be eating today is one I cook myself after dragging my arse to the supermarket for all the makings. So I'll be on scampi and calamari out of the freezer if I'm lucky.
End of first week of holiday.
I feel like death after last night.
I don't want to seem ungrateful, but it was an insult to the cow for it to die for that. Magnificent Yorkshires, though.
Any advance on Magnificent Yorkshires? I think the best bit on mine was the stuffing, honestly. Not a bad attempt overall though.
Don’t think there’s anything wrong with calamari on a Sunday. Have a roast in the week.
I'd probably never have roasts if it wasn't for being at my mother's most Sundays. And she doesn't do them every week.
To be honest they feel like a lot of effort for a meal that is far from my favourite, even when done well.
I'd rather have Floppet's calamari on balance. Although ideally from the fabled Bolton fish market, rather than her freezer.
Have to agree with you there. So much washing up for a meal that is never breathtaking. Should be an embargo (Um Bongo) on them until Christmas Day. Enjoy it a lot more, I think.
I've never bought raw squid, I'd be too afraid it'd turn out like rubber bands, but they sell them on the market. I once bought a kilo of raw king prawns to make my own prawn toast but the whole disgusting rigmarole of taking the heads off and the poo tubes out, mincing them up and marinating, very labour intensive and time consuming, knocked me so sick I couldn't enjoy the finished product despite them being a million times better than you get from the chinese.
I often use raw prawns, but I always buy them already prepped.
Mmmm prawn toast.
And there speaks someone who has never tried them
Star do you eat fish? I am not really a beef/pork fan per se, but love chicken and fish.
Omg we're like the same person.
I mean apart from gender and basically everything else.
Why would she, being vegetarian?
Are they grim? Is it the texture?
As a fresh-faced forumer, would anyone be kind enough to give me a quick Moopy history? Or any posts that discuss its origins? Loving it so far but it seems so indescribable in terms of true purpose... sorry if this is the totally wrong place to ask.
I thought some vegetarians ate fish but not meat?
Only vegetarians who aren't vegetarians.
