Friday Has a Visit to the Weeg Written All Over It

Tonight Mrs. Toad and I are going to Glasgow and I am NOT ALLOWED to take the opportunity to go to a gig, apparently.  Mean old bitch.  Still, we are staying in a posh hotel for a couple of nights, before popping up to somewherenearglasgow for a wedding on Saturday.  We are going to Rogano’s for oysters on Saturday lunchtime before pottering off in our suits and hoping that everyone else will be so smashed they won’t notice what a couple of dickheads we are when surrounded by large groups of people.

We love Rogano’s actually.  The decor is Art Deco and absolutely brilliant, and it’s full of people who look like they’ve been coming there since their glamorous youth in the seventies.  We go there, drink champagne and martini’s and eat lots of fish, and it’s brilliant.  It actually makes even me feel slightly glamorous, which is no mean feat, I promise you.  I just hope we are a little restrained and don’t turn up at the bloody wedding off our tits.

In other Hoping Not to Offend People news, my mother’s birthday is coming up, but she and my dad are off gallivanting somewhere exotic and mercifully hard to reach, so I will not be able to forget to send her a present this year, a little ritual we have which routinely results in floods of tears and plaintive cries of “Why do you hate me?”  Every single fucking year – honestly, you’d think either I’d start remembering properly or she’d just get the fuck over it, but neither of us seems to be able to sort it out, it’s ridiculous.

Anyhow, please de-lurk and say hello.  And remember to take your hipster pics of people being Incredibly Cool so you can win a vinyl copy of the Communion Compilation.  Judging will be on next Friday’s Five, so find your pics and email me at songbytoad at hotmail.co.uk.  In the meantime, Christ, please let the day be over so I can get a fucking pint.

1. What do you do which routinely causes family histrionics?
2. Apart from the Smiths, these songs are all starting to feel nostalgic now, despite only being about five years old.  Where does current stop and nostalgia begin, for you?
3. What do you wear which makes you feel distinctly Not Like You?
4. What generally disgusting foodstuff do you love.
5. Favourite childhood boardgame.

68 witty ripostes to Friday Has a Visit to the Weeg Written All Over It

    1. Normally just turning up, does it!
    2. 1992 – Black Crowes, Faith no More, Dinosaur Jr, Pavement et al
    3. the occasional polo neck
    4. pork scratchings – Beef Jerky
    5. The game of life

    1. What do you do which routinely causes family histrionics?

    Visit them.

    2. Apart from the Smiths, these songs are all starting to feel nostalgic now, despite only being about five years old. Where does current stop and nostalgia begin, for you?

    For me (and I guess for a lot of others) certain songs will always be associated with periods or incidents of high emotion, so I suppose nostalgia starts where I can hear these songs and not feel a wee stab of the original feeling again. For some events, that might be five or ten years, and for others it can be as recent as last year. So I don’t have a fixed cut-off date.

    3. What do you wear which makes you feel distinctly Not Like You?

    Anything full-on proper girly. My housemate is the kind of person who’ll give up an hour of sleep to get up, set her hair, make sure her seams are straight, spend half an hour doing her slap, and teeter to the station in 5-inch heels. If I do anything like that I feel like a drag queen.

    4. What generally disgusting foodstuff do you love.

    I’m vegan, so by definition to many omnivores, everything I eat is disgusting. But I really, honestly, genuinely like tofu. I get quite evangelical about it. (You know it’s not just a ‘meat substitute’, right?) And I’ve even acquired a taste for soy cheese.

    5. Favourite childhood boardgame.

    Oh, ‘Lost Valley of the Dinosaurs’! It was ace – a ‘Lost World’-type story, with a volcano and explorers and a miniature plastic pterodactyl that made squawking noises when you flapped its wings. I took it in to school at the end of term and some wee bastard broke the squawk. Craig O’Donnell, you git, you still owe me a working dinosaur.

    Not to rub salt in the wounds but your gig ban means you’ll be missing out, but in close proximity to the mighty Mastodon tonight!

    1. I have a habbit of not really phoning/visiting home much at all. This always seems to be taken like a slap in the face and must surely mean that I don’t love them and I’m a horrible person. Really though I’m just a bit apathetic, and a bit boring, and I don’t really have any news to share. However, the fact that it takes them equally long to bother contacting me seems to not be an issue

    2. I’m not sure, that’s a weird one. I don’t think there’s any real set time, but I wouldn’t say it’d be that long. I can allign certain albums and bands with certain points in my life, which can seem so long ago. Not to mention the tragic number of bands that have dissolved and split up over the years.

    3. I work so much these days I don’t feel myself if I’m not wearing my suit. I do have a bunch of old band tees from my younger years that I refuse to throw out, as it seems like a waste, but would only ever wear if I had absolutely run out of all other clothes.

    4. I like spam, which seems to offend people. Also Kebabs! It always genuinely surprises me when I hear people refer to kebabs as something that you would only possibly consider buying when you’re ripped to the tits as some incredibly misinformed ‘good idea’. My family used to get them for dinner occasionally, perfectly sober.

    5. I used to really love Mouse Trap, but looking back it’s a bit shit. I’m sure 90% of the time it didn’t work. Honda should make a new version based on their adverts

  4. avatar

    fuck me this is a bit earlier than normal, that’s my whole Friday routine now royally fucked. Usually i don’t start skiving until at least 12, you’re a bad influence!
    1. Drinking in front of my mother, freaks her out to fuck. Even on my wedding day she was paranoid as fuck that I was getting too drunk. Then again I did refer to my new bride as my ‘husband’, not once but twice in my speech. Perhaps she might be right to worry

    2. Fuck me that’s a hard question, I guess that it only takes a couple of years for me. Listening to new music every day, I find that I move on far too quickly these days, so even to come back to an allbum 2 years later can be quite nostalgic

    3. my old t-shirts, they used to fit me, honest to go they did.

    4. Kebab with Mayonaise and Ketchup. It looks rank, tastes amazing (you do need to be quite steaming to appreciate how good it is though)

    5. I always loved a game called ‘Hotel’, it was kind of like Monopoly but with fuck off massive skyscraper type buildings.

    1. Nothing. They’re perfectly capable of winding themselves up without me.

    2. 2002/2003

    3. I’ve recently discovered that I cannot wear a tshirt with shorts anymore. It just feels too much like running gear.

    4. Thai sweet chilli crisps dipped in Nutella chocolate/hazelnut spread. Everyone I’ve ever suggested it to has looked profoundly unwell at the thought, but it’s utterly delicious.

    5. Chinese Checkers

  7. avatar

    1. Not phone my mum
    2. radiohead – the bends did it for me the other day.
    3. a smile
    4. definitely kebabs.
    5. does subuteo count? no? ok. i always enjoyed a game called sorry cause it pissed off my brother.

  8. avatar

    1. What do you do which routinely causes family histrionics?

    For many years it was smoking, then I gave that up. I think my Mum still hopes I’ll give up being vegetarian, but as I started at fourteen and am now thirty-three, it’s unlikely. Ranting about lefty causes can still do it, too…

    2. Apart from the Smiths, these songs are all starting to feel nostalgic now, despite only being about five years old. Where does current stop and nostalgia begin, for you?

    2002/3; listening to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club reminds of ‘back when…’ but Franz Ferdinand seem like a band of now. Does that make sense? Umm, probably not, but anyway…

    3. What do you wear which makes you feel distinctly Not Like You?

    A tie – yet a suit w/ jacket and trousers is fine.

    4. What generally disgusting foodstuff do you love.

    Peanut butter. Oh, and as I have declared on here before, Orange Juice and diet coke. Together.

    5. Favourite childhood boardgame.

    Monopoly. Mrs. 17 Seconds and I have only ever played this together once, as she accused me of playing it to win. Well, duh, love. I found Cluedo boring as a child, but the more recent version with the recordings is far snappier.

  9. avatar

    1. Never making plans in advance and swanning up late to family occasions, etc. They all think I should have grown up by now – blah.
    2. Yesterday… no, 2 years ago – is that weird? Songs remind me of periods – the last one being living/uni in Edinburgh. That was nearly 2 years ago now, so whenever I hear Justice/Digitalism/SebastiAn/etc I get reminded of being there and having a ball – especialy in 3rd and 4th year.
    3. Polo shirts. Never got the point of them.
    4. Kidneys, liver, tongue – I have always thought it a waste to not eats parts of an animal if at all possible. It helps that they’re all pretty tasty.
    5. Risk. My parents have an old version (around 1970) so all the countries are wrong and have their cold war names. Everyone gets annoyed, thinks the others are ganging up against them, and throws all their toys out the pram. But somehow it’s all the family’s favourite game.

  10. avatar

    1. Erm, well just ignoring them in general I suppose. Like Tim I am prone to just turning up occasionally, and that’s about it. Apparently, this is inadequate.

    2. For me it’s five years, roughly, and I think it’s because that’s when I moved to Edinburgh from London, making everything before seem Before and everything after seem After, as it were.

    3. Tuxedos are my pet hate, but basically leather shoes will do it. Anything which isn’t trainers makes me feel distinctly odd. Comes from being a slob all my life I think.

    4. Basically, if it lives in the sea and looks like you sneezed it, then I probably love to eat it..

    5. I always hated Monopoly or Risk because they took so damn long, the sheer amount of time invested defeated my insistence on suppressing my competitive streak. Ludo was about as much as I could manage, honestly.

  11. avatar

    1. Go home for Christmas

    2. Difficult to say really because I often get into things years after they were ‘cool’ anyway.

    3. You know those semi-casual smart party shirts? Starting to fucking hate them.

    4. Rollmop herrings often get an “eww…” from onlookers, I suppose peanut butter and Worcester sauce on a white roll is pretty weird (but try it – they go together really well!) I would say Norwegian brown cheese, but being as Mr. & Mrs. Toad are evidentally the only people in the world who don’t like it, it must be them that are weird!

    5. Tivial Pursuit

  12. avatar

    Ooh! Look at me with my circular avatar!

  13. avatar

    Hey, do we all get circular avatars?

  14. avatar

    1. Not so much? Sorry.
    2. Even stuff from 18 months ago reminds me of my last job and can kind of trigger a nostalgia thing. Although I also felt a bit dislocated with the last Micah P. Hinson album as the first two were so strongly associated with *my* ‘london years’.
    3. When I shave my beard off completely, for a job interview or something, it really does play merry hell with my self-image. I have had something approaching a beard for like nine of the last ten years probably.
    4. I am not doing very well this week.
    5. Chess. So sue me!

  15. avatar
    Rampant Chutney Consumerism

    why would you shave your beard off for a job interview?

  16. avatar

    1. My dad having to watch the football while my sister and her boyfriend talk over it- something I’ve never witnessed, but I can see the expression on his face as he tries to cope with both of them and the the idiocy of Andy Gray.

    2. I only feel nostalgic about music when it’s associated with a time/place/person- e.g. songs played at various clubs during college and uni, songs given to me on mix tapes.

    3. A suit. Not having to wear one (even in interviews) is one of the many bonuses of being a biologist.

    4. Ordering a veggie burger with bacon in Reverie resulted in some funny looks….

    5. Weirdly, childhood games mostly involved pixellated Italian plumbers. Only now am I discovering the joys of Articulate and Kerplunk, which has given rise to the phrase ‘a motherkerplunking good time’.

  17. avatar

    Ordering a veggie burger with bacon in Reverie resulted in some funny looks….

    Heheh.. I used to phone up Domino’s pizza and ask for the vegetarian pizza then say “Uhh.. can I get some peperoni on that?..”

    The little pause at the other end of the phone was always a delicious moment.

  18. avatar

    Circular avatars are for people who actually write for the site, so it can go up next to the post title.

    I actually love vegetarian food, for the very same reason I could never be a vegetarian: I’m a pig. Consequently I couldn’t give up healthy or veggie food any more than I could give up unhealthy or omnivorous food.

    1) Not being a doctor/prime minister/Kofi Annan

    2) When it sounds shit now but you listen because it was good then.

    3) Anything that tucks in.

    4) Bogies

    5) RISK

  20. avatar

    1. What do you do which routinely causes family histrionics?

    not believing in god doesnt really go down well in my family so bringing up the whole logical argument thing tends to cause problems.

    2. Apart from the Smiths, these songs are all starting to feel nostalgic now, despite only being about five years old. Where does current stop and nostalgia begin, for you?

    yeah things get nostalgic after about about a year for me. i get nostalgic about the first time i heard the felice brothers.

    3. What do you wear which makes you feel distinctly Not Like You?

    shoes.

    4. What generally disgusting foodstuff do you love.

    one word. chipsteak.

    5. Favourite childhood boardgame.

    favourite boardgame was probably monopoly.

    but you remember that game nightmare i think it was called where you got a video and there was this guy acting all scary telling you what to do as the game progressed. did anyone else used to put on the video just to watch it and just piss themselves laughing for two hours? no?

  21. avatar

    1. Nothing much, drinking maybe, I come from a family of strict tee-totalers so that hasn’t always gone down to well.

    2. Things I listened to as a teenager, radiohead, supergrass, idlewild and the sort. I saw idlewild last year and when they played little discourage loads of 15 year olds were dancing around like mad which reminded me of going to see them them 10 odd years ago and doing exactly the same! I felt nostalgic and very very old.

    3. Dressing up smart but it happens ever so rarely that it’s not much of a problem.

    4. Anchovies are good.

    5. Ker-Plunk!

    Michael – Don’t remember the boardgame nightmare but was it based on the tv series of the same name? I never laughed at that, it was deadly serious.

  22. avatar

    I remember being amused by one of my friends ordering the veggie full english breakfast (odd in itself), with extra bacon, sausage and black pudding. I’m pretty sure that was somewhere awful like the Filling Station too. She’s damn skinny as well :)

    WTF is a chipsteak anyway? Google brings up steak and chips which is about as delicious and easy as food gets.

  23. avatar

    Chipsteak? What on earth is that?

  24. avatar

    Don’t bother Dylan, I’ll save you the trouble.

  25. avatar

    @Michael – do you mean Atmosfear? That was awesome.
    http://is.gd/8IYYH

  26. avatar

    No-one’s really sure what a Chip Steak actually is, Tim, but it’s a popular item on the menu at the Scottish Fish & Chip Shop of the Year (2005-2006).

  27. avatar

    Well you say that Matthew – but the first few results there start off by saying “Get two slices of chip steak and…” Doesn’t help. Admittedly I didn’t look very hard though – a few recipes down and that does sound disgusting.

  28. avatar

    Ah, now see, if you just Google it you get loads of yank crap about steak and chips.

    My link’s much better.

  29. avatar

    It is unusually difficult to find on Google though. Even if you do a Googole image search, you get results like this, and frankly that just looks like dog vomit on a roll.

    Or something you could get at any branch of Subway.

  30. avatar

    Mmmmmm…..Subway – where you can get shit rolls and processed meat and claim it’s diet food to be washed down with half a litre of Coke.

  31. avatar

    Fucking dreadful place, but the delusions it allows people to maintain are spectacular.

  32. avatar

    1. Not get in touch with people for ages. Years, in some cases, months as a matter of course.
    2. Current started in about February 2004, so nostalgia is anything before then although most things from about 1992 to 2004 I didn’t listen to at the time so they’re kind of current too. Unless they were new things by people I already liked before in which case I carried on listening to them so they’re kind of nostalgia now.
    3. I would say ‘a suit’ but since September I’ve had to wear one for work (not strictly speaking, but the sixth form dress code was upped to ‘suits’ this year and it would just get tiresome arguing about sending people home for their attire when they were better dressed than me) and it feels kind of fine again now. I feel kind of odd on the few occasions I ever wear a hat.
    4. Are you counting ‘oysters’ in this? They’re lovely. (You might have had this discussion above already but I decided to answer the questions before reading everyone elses’ answers). All of those slightly snotty molluscy things are good.
    5. I learned to play chess aged about 5 and I really liked that when I was young although I haven’t played for so long that I’m sure my childhood self could whup my sorry old arse. I used to long desperately for complicated/bitsy/lots of plastic games that were advertised endlessly on the telly – mousetrap and crossfire and so on, but never had any of them.

  33. avatar

    Suits? At school? Do you teach at fucking Hogwarts or something?

  34. avatar

    1) Well, I leave glasses with old limes all over my mother-in-laws house. And I tease her kids for being adopted, including convincing my wife’s little brother that the politically correct term for adopted was Disloved, and that the only reason children were put up for adoption was that their birth parents found them disgusting. My own parents are too busy going mental at their other child to be too bothered by what I do to them.
    2) When I left university. So the last time Cinerama was any good.
    3) Suits. Fucking hate them. And athletic shoes with chinos. Makes me fell all American.
    4) Anchovies. Strong fish. Organs. My wife is a recovering vegetarian and eats vicariously through me so whenever we go out she has steak and chicken while goading me into eating sweetbreads, veal liver and seal. Which is just fine with me.
    5) Risk! Didn’t really play board games as a child because my bastard older brother used to cheat like an Italian in the penalty area but, in later life I learned to play risk. I shouldn’t say play because in actual fact Risk is not a game. It is a means by which I prove all comers that I am more powerful than they are. Honestly, I’m really fucking good and I take it far far too seriously and crush all that stand in my way!!!

  35. avatar

    yes sorry i meant atmosfear! brilliant i thought i had the name wrong. what a game! the guy on it was hilarious if you watched the tape without actually playing the game.

    a chipsteak really is a vile concoction but for some reason i cant get enough.

    nightmare the tv series was also amazing though.

  36. avatar

    Exactly what is chipsteak?

  37. avatar

    I wore a suite at school. Yes, I’m a wizard.

  38. avatar

    They’re these things aren’t they, Michael?

    You see them deep fried and battered in the chippy.

    Fuck that was a difficult Google search.

  39. avatar

    A suite? With both armchairs or just the one?

  40. avatar

    No, it had a separate seating area away from the bedroom.

  41. avatar

    I was that good a wizard.

  42. avatar

    Fucking wizards.

  43. avatar

    I really hope no-one checks the Google searches I’ve pumped through the company network today..

  44. avatar

    1. In my teens and 20s, everything I did seemed to cause family histrionics. Now that I’m in my 30s, it seems as if nothing I do causes family histrionics. Either I’ve matured or my family has given up on me completely. I suspect the latter.

    2. A year maybe? Not very long, anyways. Any song that I strongly associate with a particular memory is nostalgic for me.

    3. Gym gear, particularly those hideous “technical” athletic shoes.

    4. Poutine. A Canadian delicacy.

    5. Scrabble. I still love it. I rarely win, because I tend to focus on trying to come up with the most interesting/amusing words rather than getting the most points.

  45. avatar

    You didn’t end up on SteakAndCheese per chance did you Dylan?

  46. avatar

    Poutine’s a great drunken snack. As are those little saveloys, stuck on lolly-sticks, dipped in pancake batter and fried, that you get in pool halls.

  47. avatar

    I’m so not googling that. Haven’t a clue what it is, but that will be probably be one bizarre search too far.

  48. avatar

    Poutine is not disgusting. It is the most wonderful bowl of heavenly goodness in the existence.

  49. avatar

    Ben, I couldn’t agree more. Some people, however, seem to think it’s a heart attack in a bowl.

    By the way, if you like Risk, you’d love Diplomacy.

  50. avatar

    Oh steakandcheese.com used to be a site that was pr0n/weirdness that we always managed to get on at school as it never had the filtered words. Some very odd stuff on there a few years ago – looks to be a paysite now though :(

  51. avatar

    i honestly couldnt tell you exactly what a chipsteak is. but it does taste close to hamburger but for some reason it tastes much better and i dont know what it is that makes it better. i think im the only person on the planet who likes them.

  52. avatar

    POUTINE!

    Precede with a half dozen pints and it’s the angels’ own bowl of culinary kisses!

  53. avatar

    Now I want poutine. Preceded by a half dozen pints.

  54. avatar

    having nothing to do with this post, i thought you might find this interesting: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2010/02/reflections-on-musicblogocide2k10.html#more

    The article begins: “The law has pretty much steered clear of the grey area surrounding mp3 blogs since their rise to prominence ~7 years ago. Meanwhile, other regulatory forces have helped the blogosphere develop an organic code of conduct that benefits the interests of the music industry and our society as a whole.”

  55. avatar

    Yeah, I read that the other day. It’s ludicrous how people have basically worked out what the law should be all on their own, and that the actual law is so fucking divorced from reality as to be attacking the happy medium which is generally in place. Fuckwits.

    Anyway, this is all too sensible for Friday at beer o’clock. I am off to Glasgow for a gutful of martinis… followed by poutine!

    Or chips ‘n’ cheese, as is more likely in Glasgow.

  56. avatar

    Or half a gram of smack and some bucky. Oh the memories…

  57. avatar

    Yes, Hogwarts.

  58. avatar

    1. heading to the pub with the old man when I’m supposed to be visiting them both.
    2. anything from the early nineties ‘madchester’ or any hip-hop rap as I had a real spell of that. Current is just anything I’ve not heard too much of so can be old to others & new to me, which is nice.
    3. Work clothes. bloody polo shirt with company logo(even though its my company, ‘got to keep up the company image’)
    4. really strong blue cheese, love it & the occasional mini-kiev. Bootiful
    5. Tri-ominoes or Yatzi brilliant.

    Michael, is a chipsteak just a king-rib without the batter? & you should be ashamed ’cause yer mums grub is great. mmhh..soup.

  59. avatar

    Oh Christ, ‘Mad’chester really didn’t catch on much with me. I only arrived in 1993, by which time it seemed to be rather petering out. Plus I fucking hate the Happy Mondays, which I don’t think helps.

  60. avatar

    1. Belch at the dinner table.
    2. Nostalgia about music begins when the band either breaks up or starts to suck, and you find yourself sighing a lot and thinking about how great they were “in their prime.”
    3. Darth Vader costume.
    4. Hog balls flambe.
    5. Uncle Wiggly, hands down.

  61. avatar

    Circular avatar! Booyah!

  62. avatar

    King Rib! Fuck! I should’ve googled for King Rib!

  63. avatar

    no its not a king rib either. look if your desperate to know what it is go and bloody buy one and eat the fucker. they are a treat.

  64. avatar

    1. Nothing. I’m perfect.

    2. 2004/2005

    3. Heels

    4. Gherkins

    5. Guess Who

  65. avatar

    Jesus, I’m out of the loop in manchester.

    However, here are my five and I hope they find all my edinburgh chums in rude health.

    1) I am very good at breaking bones, which causes obvious histrionics around my parents. However, a particular memory needs sharing – whilst on crutches with 2 broken heels and a broken ankle, I found myself in Neil Pennycook’s flat with Neil and Matthew, arguing about which was the best Tom Waits album. Neil and I rightly went for Bone Machine, whilst Matthew foolishly let his emotions get the better of him and opted for Swordfish Trombones. Hence Matthew went home defeated and Neil and I continued to drink until 4:30 when I tried to get up, forgetting my broken bones and promptly fell on my face in the man’s flat, thus again making a tit of myself.

    2) Oddly enough, tonight I felt nostalgic listen to For Emma, Forever Ago, by Bon Iver. Presumably over-rated and definitely not yet old enough for nostalgia.

    3) Now I am a ‘proper journalist’ in Manchester, I have long pointy shoes which make me look like Davie Stott from Reeves & Mortimer. So very not me. Twat.

    4) Kentucky Fucking Chicken

    5) Guess Who. The shittest game ever, but somehow super awesome.

  66. ah matthew you missed our show. It went incredibly well, but we
    were told you’re absence was all for the love of a good woman so that’s a worthy thing to miss it for! ok heres my late answers (blame meursault for me getting out of bed a couple hours ago)

    1. Leaving things like paying bills to the last minute or getting drunk and not remembering anything.

    2. Bright Eyes’ ‘Im wide awake its morning’ reminds me of when I first met ella and it’s the album that we had playing while she gave birth to Oskar.

    3. trackies

    4. scotch eggs

    5. Yep has to be guess who. played it in sofis a few nights back whilst drunk and it was even better.

    Scott, I’m not sure if you’re talking about when you asked me if Matthew was coming to Sneaky’s on Friday, but I don’t think my exact phrase was “…all for the love of a good woman”.

    I’m sure I actually said “dirty weekend”, but then you could be talking about a different conversation altogether.

    I think it was more like “filthy shagfest”
