Last night at the supermarket I had a lovely chat about American cuisine. The guy on the checkout brought up your lack of meat pies and I discussed your lack of lamb.

Are you thinking of hand-sized pies, pasties and such? There are places where you can get them. But frozen "pot pies" are much more common: chicken, turkey, beef. (No illegal plant substances involved! [Biased] )

Some people do eat lamb and mutton, but I never developed a taste for those meats.

A girl was having a lovely conversation while, and after finishing using the self service checkout this evening with the girl supervising who I think was her friend. Which was great, unless you were queuing, and just wanted her to pick up her shopping and let someone else use it.

Choccie - purchasing some chocolate!

I hate to burst your bubble, but have you ever heard of Facebook and Twitter?
Oh it happens in real life too. Just try our local pub. I don't need to watch soap operas, just keep my ears open. You get to hear of all sorts of stuff better left unshared. From adultery to attempted murder.

Though very little has risen to the level of the pub regulars gathering at the window to watch a young bloke over the road, wearing a suit and tie, talking into his mobile, and banging on the door of a house that is by some alleged to be a brothel, and getting increasingly red in the face knowing we were watching him.
