My internet provider has a DNS problem again. Adding 126.96.36.199 to the DNS servers works. But the internet provider's website doesn't even work because of their own problem ;).
They're a bit amateur-ish, it's a small scale company that offers 1000gbit internet for 44 euros a month. They invoice really late, I just received my invoice for last January. Usually it works, but sometimes they have issues like this.
I’m on Delta now, but I’m going to switch to Freedom right away as soon as it is offered here.
Morning! Getting stuff done thanks to multiple tools produced by one Borkdude 🙂
Good morning 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone. I’m gonna head back home to the family and eat some https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86bleskiver later tonight.
Not sure what that is but I hope you survive
Mmm... normally we only get that at Christmas (a friend always makes them for breakfast for anyone who turns up early!).
If "liking British food" was a personality, what foods would you have to like for it to be that important?
I've never liked jellied eels -- but I generally don't like jelly on savory foods (I tolerate it in meat pies as long as there's not too much of it).
Steak & kidney pie. Liver & onions. Tongue. Heart. Those are all good things that make most Americans squeal in disgust.
yeah, but what very, very British foods do you need to like for it to be a personality? Liking fish & chips wouldn't count.
Yeah, +1 for Yorkshire pud. And toad in the hole.
Yorkshire pudding and toad in the hole are just amazing and I will have nothing said against them
My (American) wife thinks mushy peas are vile...
...but we have, finally, found a curry she likes! (lamb boti masala -- MILD)
I had two native Indian people come over last weekend and they cooked for us. 13 cloves of garlic... oops
The owner of the local Indian restaurant here teases me that I eat much spicier food than she can tolerate (she's an immigrant from India).
(I say the same to myself when I struggle with something like lobster. Clearly it is a good thing. My disliking it is my own personal failing)
I cooked a leek and sweet potato curry last week and my wife complained that all she could taste was "Heat! OMG!" (she had half a teaspoon of it).
My wife says lobster is just a vehicle for butter 🙂
@U0525KG62 What do you mean about organ meats being "a bit tricky"?
in that I don't know which ones would count for my silly "British food is my personality" test
btw, if someone thinks British food is their personality, then they should take a good, long look at themselves and question their life choices 😉
Yeah... and TBH I'd consider organ meats just as much a French thing as a British thing... I'd never considered "medium rare" kidney until I had it in Paris (it was amazing!).
pretty much all British food that isn't turnips or blackberries are from somewhere else. Just look at the names (beef, pork)
Britain owned the world so it makes sense that the world of food owns it
the personality is one that is always in denial about these historical facts
the names 'beef' and 'pork' came from elsewhere - but I think we'd been eating pigs and cows since before the french took over
(pls feel free to start other "liking x food" was a personality threads, I'd be interested)
