Feasting For Five Fridays
Oh Christ I’m fucking tired. The videos from the Broken Records gig at the Bedlam Theatre ended up just kind of hijacking my attention and I couldn’t bring myself to stop tinkering until some time around four o’clock this morning. Consequently wit and entertainment will be in very short supply indeed on Toad today, and if you want to be entertained then you will have to do so yourselves. I will try my best to be funny, but the chances of it working would appear to be slim, to say the least.
We got onto the topic of food snobbery a little while back, so this is what I would like to make the subject of this week’s five – except backwards. None of your shaved truffles marinaded in larks’ tears this time, me hearties. It’s all about the shite. Yup, junk food, shit food, dismal food, boring food, all to be celebrated and enjoyed and written down in lists. Because for all I can certainly come across as a food snob, in many ways quite rightly, I am also as prone as everyone else to hangover munchies where pretty much anything goes, and sitting around the house watching movies eating a bizarre assortment of supermarket oddities simply because they all for various reasons struck my fancy at the time.
Last week’s five was a superlative success, with all sorts of black belt de-lurking going on and lots of new victims people joining in the fun, so lets see more of that please, that was splendid. And as soon as I get a picture of a mouse foetus brain spoon there will be a new t-shirt available, that I promise!
1. Most bizarre hangover item/combo you’ve ever enjoyed.
2. Favourite pickled thing (‘me’ – ha ha, yes, very funny).
3. Nastiest junk food for which you just fucking love anyway.
4. Oddest junk food you’ve spotted in exotic parts.
5. Really bland, unimaginative meal you find kind of satisfying.
