All entries for April 2006

While wasting away the long easter holiday I realised that I have a very odd way of eating certain foods. And so with far too much time on my hands I set off down to the shops and bought myself a selection of some of the foods I eat, and proceded to eat them in my strange and wonderful ways. However I then thought, why not share my wacky ways with the world in some kind of blog entry. So I photographed the food at various stages of eaten-ness (yes it is a real word. Honest)
From the title you'd have thought I would start with a creme egg. But I've lost the pictures for it.
So we'll begin with what I first had. A pucker pie. Bought from the finest local fish and chip shop.
(apologies for the quality of these, this comes of having to use someone else's computer)
As you can see, rather than the convential method I've gone for the somewhat unusual method of taking the top off…and eating out the insides first. Sometimes I will eat the top with the inside as well, as the top is a bit dry. This then leaves me to eat the rest of the delicious pastry.
This is similar in style to another of my foods..the custard tart.
Here initially I have carefully gone round and bitten off the crust in the first image (Note usually I wouldn't have it in the foil container..but I put in back in it for added stability, particularly for the last photo).
I have then proceded to do some difficult tongue work and lick out the entire of the filling, yet again leaving the pastry to be eaten last.
So currently I seem to be eating the inside first..and leaving the outside. But then we move on to the Kitkat Chunky.
Yes, I have very carefully bitten off all the chocolate from the outside. I was actually rather impressed with this effort, ususually I end up damaging the flakes inside. I do the same thing with a normal kitkat..but it is so much more impressive with a chunky.
Finally then, the humble jaffa cake
Here the aim is simple. The inner core is the nicest part and should be craefully preserved, so I eat off the base first, and then take the chocolate off the top.
So there you have it. Naturally of course I never normally do these in front of people (I do have some manners. Sometimes.) So basically I was wondering if I am the only person who seems to have turned the eating of food in to some kind of challenge. Does anyone else eat their food in a crazy manner?
(PS: I'm aware that there is almost certainly a psychological reason for me doing this that will expose me as a nutjob. But what the hey)
(PPS: Am currently attempting to go a whole week without my own computer in my room. This has already resulted in me getting very bored and actually doing some work. Oh and stealing Fiona's laptop a lot, thanks Fi-fi!)

Okay I know it is a little early to be making an entry about eurovision, but I was reminded of our terrible entry the other day (Although it has almost reached the "So bad it is brilliant level") but I saw this and just had to post it now.
This is Finlands Entry to the Eurovision Song Contest
One word. Awesome. I really, really hope they actually have the zombie cheerleaders on stage. Wogan is actually going to have a field day. It might even make it bareable to watch.
(Oh and I know this has nothing to do with a kitkat chunky or a cream egg. All will be explained soonish)

Sadly this doesn't really have anything to do with Cillit Bang, as I actually quite like their advert as it is quirky in a weird kind of way.
Basically I've been watching far, far too much telly, as it is Easter and while I am doing some work it has to be kept to a minimum. So naturally I've been seing a lot of adverts, quite a few of them multiple times
Firstly ABC1. I hate the way they organise their adverts. Why do they make you watch 5 mins of adverts just so you can see the last 30 seconds of the show? It is just annoying! Break in the middle like every other sane channel.
And secondly..just plain annoying adverts. The kind that make you run out the room screaming everytime you see them.
1- Sheila's Wheels: This tune is slowly driving me insane. How can anyone actually use this company? I mean..yeah it is memorable, but memorable in a 'I really want to kill whoever invented that advert' kinda way.
2- The More Than Adverts: More specifically..that's more than lucky. They have got old so, so, so quickly. Infact..I think they may actually have been old originally, and just got worse. I find myself wishing that it wouldn't be so damn lucky just to shut the guy up.
3- The Vauxhall advert with the grown up kids: This really isn't funny. Okay I can understand maybe doing it once. But it just isn't funny anymore. They may think they are being wacky..but they really aren't. In any way.
Anyway Rant over.Should hopefully be blogging again tomorrow if I can get my hands on a cream egg and a kitkat chunky….
BANG!!...and the Ross is gone
