    The cookery thread

    Mushrooms and kale in a red wine sauce and prawn linguine in a white wine and saffron sauce. Both quick and delicious for a week night. Doing the remainder of the red wine sauce with some boneless fried chicken I have left for lunch in the world's dirtiest coq au vin later.

    Insomnia

    It's a cunt, isn't it? I get it frequently and I've known this bout of it was coming for a few days now and have managed to postpone it with Christmas booze. That fell off a cliff last night and I was up at 4AM drinking wine I didn't want to drink to knock myself out and watching Australia vs India on the telly. Think being in different houses each night over the holiday period hasn't helped, nor has buggering up my sleeping pattern with going out a few nights on the trot. Realistically, it's going to be a couple of days until my sleeping pills turn up, so I get the fun of not being able to sleep, the complete panic that follows and near permanent exhaustion until then. Anyone else suffer on a regular basis here?

    Comedy News Stories

    One of the very few good things about following several thousand news outlets on Twitter is that I get good amounts of daft, mostly local, news stories to laugh at. https://www.thisisinsider.com/angry-santa-swore-at-children-2018-12 A place to post good stories you come across. Bonus points for really shit local news.

    Athletico Mince

    There's been enough discussion across the forum to justify it's own thread. I've long maintained that Bob Mortimer is in reality what Vic Reeves wishes he was. I never feel like Mortimer is trying too hard and that he really is just 'out there' (his turns on Would I Lie to You seem to prove this). This really is a very good podcast that is a great vehicle for Mortimer to be Mortimer, while Andy Dawson is solid and does good work in compering the whole thing. I've caught up on it over the course of a couple of months and have probably enjoyed 'The Adventures of Mark Lawrenson and Robson Green' the most. Some of hits, some of it misses, but enough of it is quality and it's a breezy 40 minutes. Who listens? What are your favourite segments? Is BomberPat going to buy that statue of Steve McLaren and Caspar for his Brother this Christmas?

    The Batshit World of Noel Edmonds

    This has been discussed a bit in the anecdote thread, but Noel Edmonds having some protracted Willy Loman style breakdown is the most interesting story of the year so far. So, Noel Edmonds has plainly lost his absolute shit. The following barrage of lunacy is from the past fortnight: Noel Gallagher's story on recently meeting Noel Edmonds: Edmonds in the Law Society Gazette, having raised £1.5 million to sue Lloyds Bank (this is actually happening): And today, Edmonds allegedly meeting with Jeremy Corbyn: This is plainly either going to end up with a massive compensation package, or a killing spree. Bloke is wound up like a spring.

    Top Twitter

    I know we have the social media directory, but frankly I didn't want ruin it by spamming Tweets from McFadden's Cold War, AKA the best Twitter account in history. It's the same joke over and over again and I don't care. It's brilliant. Anyway, what Twitter accounts should I be following that aren't McFadden's Cold War?

    All Purpose Weather Moaning Thread

    All purpose place to moan about how shit the weather is. It's as British as Winston Churchill ragging The Queen on the bonnet of E-type while gnawing on silverside. Elgar would probably be playing on the radio or something. I'm beginning to understand these Daily Mail headlines that prophecy death and pestilence every time the temperature deviates from about 18 degrees, because I am fucking melting. I went for a light jog earlier and lost 2 lbs. I'm getting through three pairs of boxers a day due to the truly offensive levels of sweat I'm producing. My office doesn't have air conditioning and I can't deal with it. I'm going to buy enough fans to produce a device capable of flying me to Lundy Island tomorrow. Anyone else having weather woes in this heat?
