  1. I was 23% of the way through this on my Kindle and really getting very bored and irritated by it. Your review was the death knell and so I’ve deleted it. Plus, I’d just reached a chapter that was called something like ‘Why you shouldn’t wax your dolphin before an international game’ I really have zero interest in the wanking habits of Paul Merson.
  2. I hope Dom Bess gets a wicket soon, he's looking defeated at the moment and the Indians are targeting him.
  3. Was reading an article on The Athletic about Leicester's injury crisis and the medical staff's routines and initiatives. Apparently Harvey Barnes already had a knee injury before getting stretchered off against Arsenal but because of injuries the club were having to use him and manage his fitness more closely. Players have now had 38 Premiership games in 5 and a half months, so no surprise that there's so many injuries now. Was a really interesting read and there was a graphic that was pretty informative. If you look at the 'Big Six', it's only really Liverpool that have been seve
  4. If there’s a more charming opening to a game this year than Maquette’s I’ll be amazed. A wonderful 5 minute slice of escapism to make you forget all about bloody COVID.
  5. Thanks for that, really looks to be pushing the boundaries. Excite!
  6. Another month, another bundle of ebooks to add to your virtual pile of shame. Not a number crop though. What you buying? The Mermaid of Black Conch by Monique Roffey This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor by Adam Kay Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams On the Trail of the Serpent: The True Story of the Killer by Richard Neville Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid 84K by Claire North Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah £1.89 Brick Lane by Monica Ali £1.99 The Fi
  7. Please can you take Iheanacho off us, I’ll drive him to Brighton and give you a 48 pack of Walkers Crisps too.
  8. I make naan on the wall of my kamado which are great but they're way more labour intensive than sticking a couple of those in the oven/toaster. Thought the 2 pack would be perfect for a family curry but the eldest will demolish one on his own. He now asks if we can have naan's with all manner of dinners.
  9. These are spectacular. Filled the freezer with them now. Thanks @MarkN - the family asked if I'd made them or got them from a restaurant!
  10. 5. The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson. It's a story about multiverses and initially delivers; really engaging and interesting premise as the protagonist has the job to flit between various versions of the Earth, interacting with various versions of herself and her acquaintances. In some worlds these acquaintances are good in others they're not so pleasant. I really enjoyed it until about 40% of the way through and then it became quite dull, with some flimsy internal logic and character behaviour that just seemed out of kilter with what went before. Now reading the Be
  11. That's annoying. I might leave it a year or so before starting all over again then. Cheers.
  12. Apologies because it's probably been asked before, but I can't use my PS4 save on my PS5, right? I have had a quick Google and that seems to be the case.
  13. Root has 3-0. What on earth is going on? Glad I chose to teach from home today..
  14. Now you've discovered roasted broccoli, sesame oil with sesame seeds is great. Actually keeps well as a pretty healthy snack with a bit of sea salt or sriracha.
  15. I'm becoming increasingly unconvinced that this chopping and changing approach to team selection (despite its good intentions) is ideal. Got to keep the faith though; in Bess we trust.
  16. To you. Your posts are an exercise in solipsism. Pixar doesn't feature in the lives of millions of people in the UK, despite what you might think. Let's just agree to disagree on this.
  17. I just want to know when Disco Elysium is coming out. Supposedly in March, which is ever-nearing.
  18. I'm not sure what point you're trying to make. We're discussing quiz questions on UK TV. The fact Pixar is known world-wide is neither here not there. Soaps tend to have been around for ages and have huge terrestrial audience, consistent and vast media coverage and are part of the national psyche. My point is that for millions, knowledge of soaps is ingrained and for me not to be able to answer questions on them would be as alien to that audience as a lack of knowledge of Cronenberg is to you. I'm with @Majoraon this; I think you are vastly overestimating the film kno
  19. That's a pretty myopic take on knowledge and personal interest though. I mean, if I was on a quiz show and any question came up about soaps, I wouldn't have a clue. Zero interest in them. As some of the most popular cultural products out there, millions would be on their sofas shouting at me and saying I'm thick. But I genuinely don't know a Barlow from a Mitchell. They're just not part of my cultural landscape. You can see this writ large in the 'stupid things other people say' thread on here; some of the brightest folks you know have no understanding or knowledge of Harry Potte
  20. Contract extension for Roy and Christian...
  21. My mum has a holiday place on the sea front so we're down there as much as we can.
  22. I bet Leto put up one hell of a fight when he was asked if he wanted to pose as Jesus. This is all pretty desperate stuff. Releasing into a world where there are no new blockbusters to divert attention from this and Snyder still has to encourage lowest common denominator banality.
  23. I really want them to stay up as I'm down for 2 season tickets next year (despite being a Leicester fan)!
