    Haha, yeah Toby! Hang on, most curries are shite in Dublin- definitely having a curry day in Glasgow over Christmas.

    Your curry comments jumped in front of mine. I was only referring to the bagel-distaste.

    Fair enough, but my Beigel Bake comment stands.

    Yeah. A perfect bagel represents a few minutes of consummate joy.

    My first boss, Jewish from Detroit, had one on the studio window sill. It been there for years, he had his Mum bring some over on a visit. Rock hard, it had both totemic and nostalgic properties. Occasionally he'd casually fondle it and get this faraway look in his eyes. At the time I thought that was weird. Now I understand.

    Oops, this bagel conversation has reminded me that I promised to cure some salt beef for when my mother-in-law comes to stay just before Christmas. Time will be tight by the time I get back from the weekend, but it's still doable.

    I got some Twixes in to accompany the many cups of tea that my Dad and I had while decorating earlier in the week. They looked very short. Diminishing confectionery must be the modern equivalent of younger policemen as a sign of encroaching age.

    There’s not being wee anymore, but they definitely are shrinking the fuckers. I’m the same height and small vulgarian hand size as when I started on late night snacking expeditions, and Magnums have shrunk tae fuck. Must be a third smaller now.

    Got a tub of “Italian” vanilla ice cream with my pizza delivery: only remembered now. It’s the first bright yellow gelato I’ve seen, from the plastic paddle to the scrambled egg lookalike contents I'm getting a severe flashback to Wall’s ice cream tubs in the cinema. Usherettes, jumpers for goalposts, marvellous.

    Even mediocre bagels are pretty good.

    Woke up in the middle of the night to what felt like a tank going past the house. The whole building shook and rattled. Found out this morning that it was an earthquake, strength 3.5, centred on Liminka.

    Wowse.

    I've got a new cardigan for work, and I love it. It's stone/beige mohair with sort of bluey flecks. I'm not really one for beige but this is lovely and very cosy.

    I've got to sign 140 Christmas cards, print labels for them and get them to the post office. Oh, and post another plate.

    I've never been a big fan of beige either, but replacing my navy blue rug (that I loved) with a beige one has improved my outlook on life. You can't look at it and know how long it has been since it was last hoovered. That's a big win in my book.

    Not sure if this should go in Music or TV & Film, so I'll just post it here. My friend's production company are nominated for a Grammy Award for The Defiant Ones (HBO). I started watching it last night and I'm really enjoying it. It's about the history of hip hop and the association of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. It's fun to see my friend's name in the opening credits, too. She did a lot of good things at NBC/Universal, but never got an onscreen credit.

    Heh. My boss took us out last night for a meal and beers in lieu of an actual Christmas party. It was good fun, but I'm way too old to be doing hardcore schoolnight drinking any more.

    I'm finding the older I get the less effect alcohol has on me. Spent last weekend with friends and a couple of us finished off two growlers and a six-pack in a single afternoon and evening with no ill-effects. That wouldn't have been the case twenty years ago
