Friday Questions

Postby Minnie the Minx » 01 May 2020, 17:52

Say something really lovely about one of your exes.

The worst kitchen task is refilling a black pepper grinder with peppercorns, amirite?

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?

What are you up to?

What's worse- people who put their sunglasses on the back of their head in restaurants, or people who drive jeeps with no doors in areas that plainly don't require jeeps?
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

Now we are no longer married, I can remember why I wanted to marry my ex wife in the first place. Kind of.

The worst kitchen task is refilling a black pepper grinder with peppercorns, amirite?

No. It is cleaning the fucking oven, of course.

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?

No

What are you up to?

Getting ready for bed - up at 330 in the morning

People who put the sunglasses on the back of their heads in jeeps.
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

She was one of the kindest, honest people I've ever known.

Worse than peeling and chopping 12 onions? Than scrubbing the oven? Than taking the u-bend off & spilling foul smelling water down your sleeve? Than feeling obliged to make cakes for the second time around because they burnt first time around on a Thursday night at 10:00 because it's your turn on the Friday Cake Club and you were running on empty before you even started the first time... you're wrong.

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?

Nope.

What are you up to?

Much closer to three score years and ten, so nearer the end than the beginning and very likely more than half way there. It is hard to tell.

The jeepsters, the poseurs maybe just look like total prats but haven't definitely proved it.

to be honest, i don't think i've ever seen anyone driving a jeep "live" in a place that would require a jeep.

i'll go with sunglasses on the back of the head... if they were facing me the whole time while i'm eating. ya know it's just a matter of time before i yell, "QUIT STARIN AT ME YOU RUDE FUCQUIN BASTARD!"

She was an amazing cook and I owe her my culinary life.

Cleaning the stove top after busy night in the kitchen might be worse but loading peppercorns is pretty bad.

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?

Nope. I never really had any tbh.

What are you up to?

Enjoying the contented feeling of a full belly after a plate of potstickers.

A first class chef!

I agree with cleaning the oven. Thanks, sort of, for reminding me.

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?
No old computer games to love.

What are you up to?
I'm up to no good.

I'm all for live and let live, unless the Jeepers are driving over people who have sunglasses on the backs of their heads while sitting in restaurants.
If love could've saved you, you would've lived forever.

B knew all of London's secret green places and we hung out in them for hours.

The worst kitchen task is refilling a black pepper grinder with peppercorns, amirite?

Yes, I'm right! That and washing graters.

Has lockdown "driven you back" to any old beloved computer games?

I don't think I have the electronic capacity to play them with any of my current equipment - if I did, I would almost certainly dip back into the first ever Tomb Raiders, which were the greatest games ever.

What are you up to?

Regrettably, I'm nursing my second hangover of the weekend. I'm going to try and walk it off, then have a phone call with a pal, then dick about on my guitar this afternoon and write some songs.

JEEPS

Dear Minnie,
This is my technique.
Make a funnel or tube shape out of a post-it note or similar size piece of clean paper.
Insert it into the opened pepper mill.
Pour pepper corns into funneled paper and watch it fill the mill.
Hope this helps. :)
