New midweek thread: chip butty edition.

Is it even midweek? The days have all blurred into one and lost all sense of meaning.

You'll want to replace your pillow fillers. That can be all many of fibres or "downs" (bird feathers) but spending on the innards once they turn dark tea... do it. The covers cover a multidude of sins, no matter if you pick a Tesco 2-pack or 200 Egyptian TC in MS. Or Go better ;).

Pick a comfy pillow for you, I prefer two. The covers you can vary wildy. I dislike the Brish unbuttoned style (I sow one my own, but you don't want to) but if you get the unbuttoned ones treat them like a daily towel, change as appropriate. But I toss and turn, so making them buttoned to not expore the core is worth it.

The choir felt like an advert. "Look at what London has! A choir in a replica of a theatre where Shakespeare's plays were shown, but where he isn't actually from!"

I think constantly second-guessing everyone's motives in government and the media has given my entire life a weird uncanny-valley feeling. Everything I see all around me always feels insincere, like it's not genuine but just someone doing an impression of what they think I want to see. That choir wasn't there by chance. I didn't just bump into them. Someone put them there; why? And more importantly, why didn't they just not bother and have fireworks instead?

They're talking about the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War on the BBC and the woman from the islands they're speaking to is called "Phyl" and lives on "Bleaker Island". Given this I no longer believe the Falklands Islands to be a real place.

I know I post about this most years, but it's my girlfriend's birthday tomorrow and I'm already dreading it because she has a habit of turning into a monster for the day. We're already off to a good start before it's even started because the card from her estranged father arrived today and he's addressed her by his surname, despite the fact she changed her name to her mother's surname over 20 years ago and he's never done this before.

Between 2009 and 2020, a group of Zimbabweans were resident on the Falklands to remove the land mines left over from the war. Everything about those islands is hallucinogenically weird.

It's warmed up a lot here tonight. Was expecting a lot more snow/cold given the forecast. I think the Met Office have just given up trying to be accurate and are takingf the SAGE approach of always publishing the worst case scenario.

Looks like this is the post that kicked off the Rose Matafeo debate. I barely knew anything about her before, but now I've watched her stand-up comedy show, Horndog, on BBC iPlayer so I'm an expert.

Pros:
-She has nice hair
-She is extremely hilarious in places
-She has a good level of awareness that places her a cut above the average "woke statement" comedian

Cons:
-She's from New Zealand. I thought she was American. She sounds like all the Australians in that Simpsons episode where Bart phones Australia. It's awful
-She is undeniably more interested in social-media wokeness than at least a couple of us here, which doesn't bode well for you two if this place only has three posters and I'm the third one
-She loves to mention her age, which is appalling and offensive to anyone older than her
-She sets off all manner of alarms for severe mentalness, although only slightly more mental than the unstable freaks who post here

I saw a female comedian at university close to 15 years ago, and loved her so much that I tracked her down on Facebook and told her what a genius she was. Her name was Nat Luurtsema; I think she went into the fringes of Radio 4 comedy but never any further. She did reply, which was nice. In terms of other celebrities I have reached out to on Facebook, the BBC's special disinformation correspondent, Marianna Spring, who reports on fake news, never got back to me about a thing I saw online where it was really easy to vote on behalf of other people in the 2020 US election, and also, a foreign pop star from the '90s never thanked me for telling her that her website's domain had expired.

It always throws me off that there's no official adjective-form denonym for people from New Zealand. Whenever I look someone from there up, it just says "so-and-so is a New Zealand actor", which reads so awkwardly. Can't we just adopt kiwi in an official capacity?

- A seasonal picture, like snowdrops or leafless trees.

Monday isn't really "mid"week, now, is it?

Perhaps we should have a Monday thread, a Tuesday thread, a Wednesday thread, and so on. Ban anyone who posts on the wrong day. Arguments about the true definitions of the social classes, whether or not it's acceptable to fancy Priti Patel, and the Protestant work ethic will all be limited to just a few hours each, and then we can talk about something else the following day.

This is the worst idea I've ever had but I can't be bothered to hold down Backspace to get rid of it, so now I fully endorse it.

Explain a woman thing to me: I'm a bloke over 30 and I want to settle down and have kids. I make this clear in the bit on my dating profile, 'want children' it says, and I don't message women who mark that they don't want kids.

And yet exactly half the women I meet make clear on the first date that they don't want kids. This sounds like a /101/ about women but I'm just confused. Tonight I went out and had chicken feet and trotters for dinner with a woman and I don't know why. Is she just wasting my time or is some this 4d mind game?

>chicken feet and trotters for dinner
Do you .. eat the whole thing? I'd imagine trotters would be quite difficult, but picking anything off of a chicken foot must be pointless. What kind of restraunt sells that - Chinese? Soul food?

I'll be honest though, the pictured meal does look alright. I'd try it if sweet and spicey. There's definitely some animalistic pleasure in eating gristle - like you're at a kings longtable smashing in a whole chicken leg.

Chicken feet are typically eaten whole, and they're pretty good. I had them at a bar in Beijing, along with duck feet. Duck feet are booked until the bones gelatinise a bit, then served cold in a sort of vinegar. They're almost entirely tasteless, and are eaten more for the texture and mouthfeel, which is like a load of worms trying to escape a scrotum inside your mouth.

I would but then they'd probably turn around and say they want kids just to waste your time as well. It's rather frustrating to have to dump yet another woman and to likely continue my tradition of never having a valentine.

>>448944
This was a Korean place but it's more of a Chinese thing. Can't say I took to them, it's like an extreme form of ribs where there's very little meat to justify the hassle and in the case of feet you're spitting out bones.

If you're curious about the trotters then it's salty rubber.

Growing season is starting again.

I've got twelve chili pepper seedlings in my heated propagator right now. They are almost literally growing by the hour at the moment.

Chili peppers as well as other nightshades need a long growing period in our climate, so I always start mine right after the winter solstice. Which means that I then get to harvest the first two or three fully ripe cayenne peppers off my plants as early as mid-June.
