This is how Brexit happened.

“Cannot believe I’ve just applied to change my last name by deed poll and after submitting my application and paid, checked my emails and the application had auto filled my name to ‘miss hindley health center’.”

She hasn't, it's centre, in the screenshot.

You mean that Nigel Garage only meant to change his name to Candy Glittertits?

meme, any idea why the Place de la Concorde is completely blocked off?

FleurDuMal - 16 Mar 2019 11:45:04 (#2426 of 4879)

Ah yellow jacket cunts

mememe - 16 Mar 2019 11:48:57 (#2427 of 4879)

Are you in town fleur ?

FleurDuMal - 16 Mar 2019 11:50:22 (#2428 of 4879)

No, but son #1 is.

At the FIA overlooking it

Lots of mature cheddar cheese melted on hot toast is my latest obsession. I love it so much I have it for breakfast and then exactly same again for lunch! Don't @ me!

Lawlsie - 16 Mar 2019 12:49:33 (#2431 of 4879)

Ah! Just remembered there's rugby on the box today! Ireland v Wales should be a cracker. And England Scotland! Marvellous. I don't have a clue what's going on but I love watching the Six Nations. Hope Wales get the grand slam.

Ugh. First world, North London problems. A new health food shop opened near me recently. They have a lovely bright coffee area which I felt was just what the area needed and was a great spot to sit with a newspaper watching people on their way to and from the tube station. I've been in there twice now and, arg, what the hell kind of coffee are they serving?

I drink a lot of coffee and have a high caffeine tolerance, but omg. This stuff tastes almost like hot chocolate, and after drinking an inch of it I thought I was going to be sick. I ended up pouring most of it into the drain around the corner. Won't be going back sadly. V disappointing.

just tell them, perhaps they'll change the blend

probably not

xDiggy - 16 Mar 2019 13:08:05 (#2434 of 4879)

Plenty of other people seem to be drinking it. It obviously just doesn't agree with me. I've never tasted anything like it.

HorstVogel - 16 Mar 2019 13:19:48 (#2435 of 4879)

I've come across coffees like that, rarely, perhaps it's a type that goes well as an additive (think Americans drinking something out of a bucket).

black coffee drinker me, sometimes for a lazy weekend afternoon a Latte M.

mememe - 16 Mar 2019 14:03:44 (#2436 of 4879)

Is it that blonde roasted stuff? Should be banned.

HorstVogel - 16 Mar 2019 15:16:44 (#2437 of 4879)

banned seconded

Lawlsie - 16 Mar 2019 16:16:46 (#2438 of 4879)

The rugby is a bit one sided but it's the result I wanted.

Shadrack22 - 17 Mar 2019 11:08:57 (#2439 of 4879)

The attempt to find vegetarian food in Seoul. It is hard work, putting it mildly. Pudding bowl haircuts for men (as per Tim Burgess a few years ago) are in. Coffee shops every few yards. Miniature dogs on leads. No litter bins but no litter anywhere. You can’t go into the inaccurately named I Love Pub and just get a drink.

Why not?
