    Trivial Things That Annoy You...

    There's a new lad in my office who makes a shite tea. I nearly fell asleep after one as it was like warm milk. I asked him to leave the bag in going forward and said it was because I'm a weirdo rather than tell him his tea is as weak as lamb piss. He makes a cracking coffee though so it all balances out I guess.

    I gotta disagree with this. If people smoke on set breaks then fair enough, but people popping out every hour for a fag is a tad excessive. And I say this as someone who used to smoke (and still have a few when having a few beers). Obviously every workplace and it's dynamics are different so what works in one place may not work so well in another.

    Your philosophy

    I got two hard rules I live by, I don't fuck with the devil, and I never do tag-teams with blood relatives.

    Best chocolate bar

    No it's not. The Chunky has a greater chocolate to wafer ratio than a standard Kit Kat. Normally more chocolate would be better but less is more with the Kit Kat.

    I've not tried so don't want to pass judgement on these just yet but two things: 1) Salted caramel being everywhere is a trivial annoyance of mine. I don't even think that you get normal caramel flavoured things anymore. 2) Normal Kit Kats > Kit Kat Chunky

    Time Trumpet!! What a forgotten gem of a show. This is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this thread...

    Do you take Cakes/treats to work on your birthday?

    I'll take stuff in, albeit begrudgingly. I don't agree with taking food in for your own birthday, especially as I don't like eating junk food in the office myself. However, I don't want to be a miserable bastard so I'll take some goodies in for my colleagues to chow down on.

    DVDs and Films You Have Watched Recently 3 - The Final Insult

    Shocker doesn't get enough love. I had it on video as a youth and would blast it on quite regularly. And Mitch Pileggi will always be Horace Pinker and not Skinner for me.

    Your Daily Commute

    Takes about 40mins on the bus and walking to work in the morning. 20mins on transport. 20mins walking. Its a bit longer on the way back as for some reason buses turn up whenever they want in the evening. But yeah, not too bad to be honest as I get some exercise in my journey.

    Do you remember when it seemed like everyone loved Johnny Depp? I recall people being outraged when Heath Slater was announced as The Joker in that Batman film and not Depp. Personally I've never been a fan of his, barring a few films he's done. At least he's getting that Travolta stink about him in 2018.

    Super Show-Down (Showdown? Show Down?)

    Did Cole refer to it as "the sixth move of doom"? Absolutely awful. And that promo at the end was dreadful. When he's on Cena is fantastic but I can't stand it when he does those phoney humble promos. As for the event, it was enjoyable enough. AJ and Joe had the best match of their feud whilst Murphy/Alexander stole the show. Also, as someone who only watches bit and clips every week, what the hell has happened to Asuka? Any aura she had has been killed off. Even Corey Graves said "I liked it when she kicked people. All this dancing doesn't bode well for her career."
