Ship “ahoy”

April 27, 2009

The Ship was rocking on the weekend.  After returning Saturday morning from Tokyo, I managed to have some “quality time” at the local. Of course, this summer things are a little different.  It seems every weekend there’s a stage band.

It was great to catchup with a few friends, enjoy the British Sun (yup it showed up for the afternoon) and attempt to recover from jetlag.

[203 out of 203 people voted this was the “place to be” in England on Saturday]

Easter eggs for dogs!

March 22, 2009

For all of the non-believers out there, below is photo graphic proof that there is such a thing as “dog chocolate” and Easter eggs for dogs.

They’re not small either… you’d need a puppy/dog with a big appetite for these!

[43,230 Dogs Voted that they’d love to receive one of these for Easter, but acknowledge that they probably won’t]

Squirrel flavored crisps / chips?

March 22, 2009

What gives?  Yesterday at my local shop I noticed a new type of packet crisp at the service counter.  Seriously… check it out for yourself!

Ok, in the United Kingdom and London for that matter, apparently it’s legal to eat certain types of squirrel – not the local ones, but those pesky introduced varieties.  What I didn’t know however is that it’s all gone commercial!  

While I haven’t tried them, my guess is they are going to taste a bit nutty or chicken-like (doesn’t everything not beef based)

I do have some important questions though, most importantly;  Are these squirrels farmed or free-range?

While I know we’re in a recession, attacking innocent squirrels is the last thing I thought I’d see, especially on a crisp packet.

Sausage Rolls: Contains at least 12.5% pork

March 15, 2009

This was the text on a sign displayed by a stall owner at the London Borough Markets yesterday.  Don’t get me wrong, they are absolutely delicious sausage rolls and it’s obvious that the 87.5% pastry (and mysterious additives) are the awesome part… but why don’t they just advertise that?  I mean, shouldn’t they promote the stuff that makes them so damn tasty?

Can’t wait to have them for lunch.  There’s no way I’m sharing.
