Weekend thread: bangers and mash edition.
If that lad with all the instant mash is about then I may have a business proposition for him; I went a bit overboard buying wholesale bags of Quorn sausages from Farmfoods.

A proper kebab and shawarma place run by some very nice lads from Iran had its opening this week, and since Thursday I've eaten there three times, once for lunch, one for a colleague's leaving do on Friday night and third time got it delivered for last night's dinner. It is unbelievably fucking good, the last time I had shawarma that tasted that good was in Berlin and I've got no self-control when it comes to great doner. They make all the sauces from scratch and everything.
Consequently I have spent all of today doing 3 (three!) monster shits each the size of a baby's arm and feel like I've lost 15 pounds and no small amount of dignity, but it was worth it.

If the apprenticeship I applied to keeps having its application deadline extended, does that mean it's jam packed and they're giving as many people as possible a chance, or that no bugger's interested and I'm a shoe in because of what a jolly smart chap I am?
|>>|| No. 424991
If they're extending it, it's because of low interest. Don't take anything for granted though, anyone with a head on their shoulders will be biting their hands for a decent apprenticeship so prepare.

Following on from this. I pussied out from phoning in sick today but decided to grab some lucozade on the way to work. Fucking Nisa charging £1.99 for a 1 litre bottle. Broken Britain I tell you.

Was it? Is that why my dad would give it to me when I got ill as a youngen? That stupid fuck didn't realise I was just dehydrated.
GOD I HATE MY FUCKING PARENTS!
|>>|| No. 425010
It was only sold in chemists and came in a glass bottle, wrapped in yellow cellophane. Only posho's got it when they were ill, mind - was expensive; the one time my parents got me some I remember thinking, fuck, I must be really ill.

Yeah, it was owned by Smithkline and marketed as a medicinal product until the early 80s.

They could've written 'knob' in Cyrillic, at least.
Get well, mate, I've just recovered from one. Some sort of arse flu, I laid immobile for two days, then released a weekly norm of shits in the next two days.
Would wish this to an enemy though.
Good on you, I can appreciate a good doner, sometimes rolling my own from the leftovers.

I think I finally gained the admiration of the indimitaing little old chinese lady that runs the local asian supermarket. She clearly saw me as just another one of the tiresome nerds that came in to buy instant noodles and Pocky, but has noticed now that I'm just as interested in buying pork blood and beef necks and that sort of thing, and has started to treat me with something approaching kinship.
I think I might buy a Durian from her next week just to seal the deal.

Last time I went to a Chinese supermarket a woman told me off, in Chinese, because my daughter sneezed; I believe she thought it was my fault because one of her trouser legs had rolled up a few inches.

I can't decide what to do with myself this weekend.

It's too wet and windy. I was going to walk to the shops to get the ingredients for a lasagna but I can't be arsed in this.

Come home for the weekend. Dad keeps making jokes about my weight. Says he needs to say stuff like this to make sure I'm not too fragile for the real world. Don't know why I bothered coming back.

It's hard to imagine how parents can be this shit, and mine aren't particularly great to start with.
I assume the best response is to take the piss out of him, is he bald? old? prostate cancer? there must be something.
|>>|| No. 425188
Not really hard. I used to get the same treatment at times (something tells me that it was all too common and it's just my brain stuffing the memories in the dark corner of my bone-box, never to be taken out again).
Need I say this 'hardening ya' bollocks didn't really help me in the end?

I agree it's very poor parenting and done like this, entirely counter-productive - but there is probably something at the root of it. Taking the piss out of your kids like this is a stupid way of communicating a concern one might have about something, I agree totally on that point, nobody should be unkind, particularly to ones own offspring.
If you've historically had a very poor (uncommunicative) relationship with your kids, "haha you're fat, no just joking" is a terrible way to do it. Many families have history that gets in the way (which people realise and deal with much too late). But there is no such thing as a joke.
I totally agree that taking the piss back is the right defence, though.

No. I agree. I know for sure my mum was too nice to me, let me get away with a bit too much, and I spend quite a few years after moving out before even realising that I needed to build up a thicker skin, to learn that you don't always get something just because you want it, to deal with disappointment and rejection - I just didn't have the tools for it, had never experienced any of it. These aren't easy things to learn as an adult.
This is the only place I'd ever talk about this because it sounds so fucking stupid to say "I had a great childhood, I always got what I wanted, woe is me", but it's true. I wasn't a rich kid by any stretch of the imagination, but I fully understand why many rich kids turn out to be jealous, clueless irresponsible adults.
Definitely not saying you have to call your kids a fat cunt, but introducing them to the harsh realities of life is important.
|>>|| No. 425211
Introducing to harsh realities is one thing.
Doing the 'oh you got whacked? here, have some more' routine is another.
Pretty sure we were talking about the latter. I'm definitely with you on the former, I frequently find myself annoyed with folks of the sheltered upbringing.

Just a quick one lads, for any Londoners. According to the tfl website you can just use any UK contactless card in place of an oyster card in exactly the same way. Is that absolutely for sure? I don't need to sign up for anything or activate anything? I can literally just walk onto a bus with my debit card with no issues?

They will (permanently?) block it if you use it too much with no money in your account though.

That's been the issue all along.
The loudest leave voices are complete knobs. I work with a chap who voted leave because he thought all the Poles would be forced to go home.

Strangely, Will Self put it very well the other week - its not that everyone who voted Leave is an actual racist, but all the racists definitely voted Leave.

There were a number of chavs and skinheads who voted Remain on the basis that the Eastern Europeans coming here are white and tended to have conservative values similar to themselves so would stop us getting overrun with eskimos.
Anyway, let's not get into playground shite.

I think this might be the weekend where I actually cook bangers and mash like the OP.

This morning my usual hairdresser wasn't in so I had to have a different woman.
On the negative side, they were playing Heart instead of Radio 2, she could have been gentler around my ears with the clippers and she asked too many inane questions in an attempt to make small talk. In the positive side, she was more thorough so did a better job and she had really big breasts which kept pressing against me. Swings and roundabouts.

Do it lad; with homemade onion gravy, honey roast carrots, and green beans. None of this pea guff.

My girlfriend has put on the live action Disney remake of Beauty and the Beast. It's just so... soulless.

What tea do you lot buy? I've got redbush for night-time but on the normal stuff recently downgraded from Yorkshire to the Sainsbury's own brand. I'm not impressed and I'm sure I'm being judged for this.
Smile and nod, mate. I recently made the mistake of giving my honest opinion on the new Aladdin trailer and got a look like I'd just taken the piss out of Emmerdale. You' know the one I'm talking about.
See you at the next Toy Story.

Went into A&E tonight because I had a pretty nasty persistent cough due to a recent cold and bronchitis.
I was given codeine drops to suppress the cough. A bit too early to tell if it's successful.
Can any kind of fun be had with codeine? I vaguely remember reading about it being an illegal drug.
Tastes fucking disgusting though. Very bitter, in a quite chemical kind of way. I'm supposed to take it two to three times a day as needed, twenty drops in a few ounces of water.

>Emma Watson was completely miscast in the role. Her performance was flat and she's not conventionally attractive enough either.
She can be wank material on a good day, but only for as long as you don't think too much about the kind of person she fancies herself as these days.

It's an opioid, so it's basically weak heroin. Very much an acquired taste IMO, but if you neck the lot you'll get absolutely off your tits. Probably not a road you want to go down.

I ate some mushrooms and went to a fetish club on my own. It went as you might expect.

I would wager there is also paracetamol in there, and obviously too much of that won't end well for you at all. Check the label before you neck anything, unless you're really after a very painful death.

I think the lad in the National Action thread was right when he said that young people used to find their tribe, or attempt to fit into one, based on specific genres of music whereas nowadays, particularly with the affect the internet has had on social interactions, people are increasingly getting a sense of community and belonging from political ideologies.
I suppose with Watson she was always going to get her head rotted by Hollywood luvvies. Not everyone can be as level headed as Grint or a raging alcoholic like Radcliffe.
