    My perfect airport situation would be being treated like a customer by the airport staff but, alas, this is never likely to happen. I think I've mentioned before that passengers are referred to in the airline industry as "self loading baggage", which just about sums it up really.

    I just turn up as late as you can risk it and spend as little time in the God forsaken places as possible. My family get naffed off with me at airports as all I want to do is to get through everything as quickly as possible even if it means sitting at the gate for an hour. I'd rather that than suffer the overpriced, plastic food, have to work my way through crowds of idiots who don't know which direction they should be going in or do some "retail therapy" and buy some shit I neither want nor need in the terminal.

    Terminal - predicted to lead to death, especially slowly; incurable esp. airport terminals

    Oh, I don't like airports LOL

    On one of his TV programmes he cooked a curry for his mates. Apart from not including any dry spices except chilli powder he put the chilli into a pan with hot wet spices, then remarked on the acrid smell. You burnt the chilli powder Jamie, it will be bitter, throw it all away and start again.

    P.S. He also maltreated the ginger root, at most you should only scrape the outer layer off, not slice it off; this is the part of the ginger with the most juice which gives it the taste.

    Leave him alone, he knows what he's doing.

    I've never watched him cook, his tongue attracts too much of my attention. How has he not managed to chew it off while talking?

    Actually, the saddest part is, this one I've known for almost 30 years and he lives about 3 miles down the road! As it goes, I've found a different plumber (recommended by someone I trust) to do our boiler and I managed to fix our toilet myself after watching a you tube video on how to do it ;) It ended up costing me just £4 for the part, result!

    Proof positive that the world has gone entirely mad. The Iceland Christmas ad can only be seen on you tube as it’s been banned on TV. Apparently it’s too political.
    Watch it. Political my ass.
    What they really mean is. “ it’s scary we can’t face the truth.”

    From what I've seen on twitter the publicity of the advert being banned has made people so angry loads of them are going to shop there now. So in some ways they might have actually done them a favour.

    I do wish that shops would not take the names of countries, I get easily confused.

    I know, the Peoples Democratic Republic of Tesco has never been the same since that supermarket opened.

    You joke but I'm pretty sure a track lay out for the Tesco Grand Prix has already been submitted to the FIA.

    As an aside - do you know why Iceland is called Iceland? It's because the settlers there were trying to deter the Vikings from invaded. They called their own island Iceland and the one near by Greenland. This may be a myth but I like to think it's true.

    That is why the country tried to sue the shop to try and make them change their name. It didn't work. Of course before it was Iceland wasn't it Bejam? Damn I'm showing my age now :snigger:
