    Watching absolute nutters of human beings hooning around on two wheels, sometimes at rates of pushing 50 MPH.
    Short version - Tour de France.

    Impromptu "bring your baby to work" morning - Mummy had things to do, and not a lot of sleep, so daddy packed the bags and pram and went to work. Many impressed colleagues and a very happy baby (and a happy mummy) means daddy earned a couple of gold stars.:D

    Almost 2 months, multiple online chats and an angry email later and the brakes I sent to Portugal arrived back with me today! Box is beaten and crumpled, but all the tape held and nothing appears damaged (would have been quite an achievement if they did manage to).

    Now I gotta go through the battle of getting my money back, but that's a battle for another day...

    What I just ate. Jerk chicken thighs from Waitrose. Deboned no knuckles just pure meat. Basmati rice with peas and cauliflower with Frank's red hot sauce all over.

    God, what a rush. Snot running out of my nose just to confirm it was hot enough lmao.

    The Scotch bonnets in the jerk aren't hot enough for you that you add Franks's to the side dish...:eeek:

    I once went to a real Mexican restaurant out in the USA. Not one of the stupid chains but a real hole in the wall place for the natives to the town. It produces more blueberries than the rest of the entire USA so they have a lot of Mexicans working there. Poor sods are probably being paid nothing.

    Any way, she puts down the guacamole and I dunk a tortilla chip in it. Dear God. It was so hot that my throat nigh on closed up and I was gasping for breath. It took me about two minutes to recover, then I did it again :D

    I do like hot food. Not all of the time but apparently it releases some kind of endorphin in your brain which makes you feel good. I reckon there's something to that tbh.

    And that's why I grow my own chili peppers. Dear lord, they're hot but I just love them.

    It's so tiny! Makes me happy to know we can finally have powerful PCs in that form factor.
