And a Chappy Chanukah to you, choney.

Merriment all around, and Mrs Pouncer has pushed off. Which aspect of Yulish horror was the last straw, one wonders? And is there an English cliche more hackneyed than "last straw"? It's a good cliche, though. When I cast off a particular aspect of my job, it really was a last straw that pushed me over the edge: it was trivial, compared to the series of bastardries that had been inflicted on me, and something snapped.

Good god, the most accurate way of describing my life is via cliche. I shall drink port. Warre's '63, I think.

Happy xmas Inky .
I am still recovering from Ma Beasties 'special ' christmas pudding.....It may yet prove to be the final straw for my beleaguered digestive tract :-(

And a merry xmas to you too, Beast. I hope you recover in time for Dorchester debauchery.

You've got to hand it to that Santa Claus: at the end of the day the boy done good.

Turkey butties till Easter for me.

BEAST said...

Inky , debauchery seems to pass me by .
Dorchester = Washing Up . My only excitement is a clean tea towel :-(

And why not?

inkspot said...

Kevin, the boy done me good anyway, I got a jolly good set of tools. Imperial.

Beast, which pocket do you wear the tea towel in? No, don't tell us, come to think of it.

Dotterel, welcome to this corner of chaos, why not which? The cliche or the Warre's? Ah, both, yes I do see.

Ne'er a truer word Inkspot. Christmas Eve was the Pits o' Hell itself. Christmas Day improved with the drinks intake.
Warres sucks ass.
Nicholson's (of Leith) crusted is passable but pricey mind.
It all looks the same when your spraying your host's bathroom wall with it, fois gras, diced carrots, the lot. It looked like CSI Miami when I'd finished.
Port? I'm off it.

My teatowel is worn on my shoulder Inky for ease of access , it would be of no use in a pocket

Are you sure?

inkspot said...

Conal? Who or what is conal? Beast's teatowel? Why? Christ, this is beyond me. And ease of access? To where or to what? No, you may not put your finger there, I'm quite sure.

BEAST said...

Happy New Year Inky .
In answer to your insatiable knowledge for all teatowel related things , one needs easy access to ones teatowel when working in a kitchen. There are hot things to pick up and dishes to wipe . Therefore one must have ready acces to the kitchen Bitches best friend the mighty teatowel

I meant to say, Doc, that Warre's sucks ass like a high-spirited mistress rimming you. Hypothetically speaking.

Beast, ease of access is a great name for a blog. Or a post; can we have it soon?
