delirium happy
I'm almost annoyed. I was having the most wonderful dream about a TV show which was both a compilation of the best comedy sketches about cheese and a celebration of Britain's diverse cheeses. I had just started watching the first sketch (which included two parrots and the song Jitterbug) when I was awoken by a phone call from BT reminding me that I hadn't paid my bill yet. Bah, and also humbug. Still, my own stupid fault for not having yet paid, I suppose.

Yes, dear.
I thought it was France that was so wonderful with cheeses... IIRC, someone once asked how it was possible to rule a country which produced x different kinds of cheeses.

Britain has some wonderful cheeses of its own, they just tend not to get as good a press as the French ones do, probably because the Brits tend to be less passionate about their cheeses. The cheeses you buy off the supermarket shelf here tend to be a little on the bland side but if you dig a little deeper, and pay a little extra, there are some fantastic ones, mainly farmhouse produced traditional local cheeses. One of my all time favourite ever shops is a little shop in London that just sells really good cheeses from all over Britain. The smell in there is simply divine. Personally, I have to speak up in favour of Mrs. Kirkham's Lancashire cheese, but there's a host of other good ones. Swaledale, wensleydale, stilton...

I thought it was Charles De Gaulle who made the comment that it was impossible to rule a country that made X number of cheeses?

Oh, most likely. But then, my family is French-Canadian, so we never get the language quite right. ;)

Cheeeeeese.... Yuuuuummmmmm.....

I think it's worth pointing out that had BT not woken you up, you would in all likelihood have dreamt a bit more then drifted out of REM sleep and promptly forgotten the dream completely. So yay for BT.

Great idea for a TV show though. If I were the commissioning editor of BBC 2, I'd be on the phone to someone right now.
