Friday Wants its Fucking Bed

Oooft.  It has been a heavy week, and oddly enough I am going to be taking the weekend as an opportunity not to drink, which is a bit backwards.  But then, that’s how these things go sometimes I guess.

The good thing about my current job, of course, is that I don’t have to be all that professional.  So instead of sitting at a desk trying to look like I’m being efficient this afternoon, I can put a movie on talk shite on the Friday Fives and fold Cold Seeds inserts.  It’s work, of course, and it does need to be done, but that doesn’t mean I have to make things hard on myself.

One nice thing about being in the house during the day is that we happen to live near just about the best butchers and the best fishmongers in the city.  So when I pop out for my lunch I can also pick up something extremely tasty for dinner as well.  I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen over the last couple of years, largely due to coming home and getting straight on the computer to do Toad things, so I have actually been quite enjoying getting back in touch with my inner housewife.

Anyhow, Fridays, as we all know, are de-lurking amnesties, where you the silent masses save me from the incessant chirping of my regular gobshites by answering five largely frivolous questions about nothing much in particular and then annoying your bosses by doing nothing at all for the rest of the afternoon except talk shite on the internet.

1. Weirdest foodstuff you have ever sampled.
2. Something you thought would taste horrid, but was lovely.
3. Something you thought you would enjoy, but was disgusting.
4. Tastiest food which is completely boring.
5. Hangover munchies of choice.
