In less ranty news, some random bits:

1. I own a George Foreman grill. Whenever I want to cook something on it, I have to look up the cooking time in the little instruction booklet. In this, it splits things up by type of meat, so you might, for instance, look under pork and then under sausages (thin) or chops, or whatever. It has a category for chicken/turkey, because they're sufficiently similar to need the same cooking times. It then lists things like burger (100g) an kebab. And finally, it also lists "thighs (chicken)". Whenever I read this, I cannot help but to giggle at the mental image of someone attempting to use it to cook a turkey thigh and being all confused as to why it wasn't working.

2. Yesterday, I discovered that I am now the top google result for "damn and blast british telecom". This feels like an achievement, somehow.

3. OK, I said I wasn't going to rant, but the thing with religious groups whining about not being able to discriminate against gays really can't go without comment. I'll not really rant on it, for the same reason as yesterday: you'll all just agree with me. What I will say though, is this: people really need to learn the difference between no longer occupying a privileged position and having their rights taken away.

Why, don't turkeys have thighs?

They do, but they're big. Too big to really fit on the grill, and certainly too big to be cooked in the 5-7 minutes it recommends for chicken thighs.

Peter Tatchell nailed it: "It is hypocrisy and double standards. They want the law to give them privileged protection and for gay people to be treated as second-class citizens."

(Quoted in today's Grauniad)

Woohoo! Beating Douglas Adams (sort of) to a top google spot, well done!

Gah. I hate those Foreman grills. Freaking impossible to clean, and messy besides. Yuck.

Hm. I am suddenly hungry, alas. But it's snowy and icy out, so I suspect I will go spear something prefrozen.
