Hot sauce collection
You can blame lilpixie for this one – her post about A fire breathing fetish of sickly proportions ...… brought back memories of when I used to smother everything with hot sauces. It also reminded me that I still possibly had a fine collection of some of the hottest sauces known to man….Ones that have survived the ruthlessness of a Mrs B cupboard clear out. Possibly too hot for even her to handle .... in reverse order of killer heat.....
Susie’s hot sauce – Does not sound that harsh but it does come with a 4 day toilet warning, alongside a recommended minimum 12 bog roll requirement…
Tough Guy Hot Sauce - Guaranteed at least five days in the hospital of your choice… Bring your own changes of bed sheets, no less than 7, probably more ...
Zulu Sauce – comes with the serving suggestion: Add to food and then runaway, do not look back….. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is BEWARE! This is not a hot sauce for using -- this is a hot sauce for laying down and avoiding at all costs.
Who Dares Burns – Only the strong survive, as this sauce launches a full frontal assault on your soon to be ‘ex’ taste buds. It is famed for its legendary lingering after burn which it claims can been responsible for removing the gusset of good quality underpants for up to 6 months after initial contact ….
The Hottest F*ck*n’ Sauce - Famed for it's tripple burn action ...on the way in...during its very short visit...and very much on the way out....Some of the most intense ring sting action known to man.....Keep away from pets, small children (Personally I think they should have the opportunity to try it for themselves…sort of learn through play) and above all anyone who gets offended by bad language….includes a warning to avoid contact with sensitive areas….do they honestly think people are stupid enough to rub it on parts of their body…?
…..Errr, there will be a short delay while the author of this blog attempts to find gallons of ice cold water to cool off some of his extremities…..
Bishops Stortford Music Festival
Having failed to gear myself up and purchase advance tickets, £40 for 3 days worth of entertainment, I was a bit shocked to rock up at 6pm on Sunday and find we were being mugged - £30 each for the last couple of hours….A bit steep but hey it’s a local event so we decided to swallow it….
Pandora’s Box – I happen to know the lead singer, Chloe, she attends my Yoga class and so I felt duty bound to make up for all the screaming and odd faces that I pull during Yoga class. Pandora’s Box is a great combo: they’re all still teenagers (take any two of them and add their ages together and I’m still older by way to many years for my comfort. Although on a brighter note, the combined age of all four of them make me look positively youthful… What can I say? You have to clutch at straws where you can.....) Their sound is very much a combination of Kate Bush, Florence and the Machine and with a dash of Tori Amos to add some spice.
Pandora's Box. I'm positive you won't regret it and if you do, I'll come round and give you such a good musical educating, that you won't forget in a hurry....
Dodgy – Just what were the 90’s multi-million selling group doing playing the Bishops Stortford Music Festival? Is it a sign that Bishop Stortford is heading for the big time…. Is it too much to expect U2, Coldplay, the Rolling Stones and possibly Paul McCartney next year????
With Mrs B’s eyes glazing over, determined not to listen to another second of The Pink Floyd Dimension (a tribute band – not the real thing) she marched us off towards the - Silent Dance Tent …..This lasted seconds as an onslaught of drum and base and a legion of snotty nosed kids glaring at us as we dared to enter their domain drove us scuttling for home, with Mrs B moaning that that was not dance music nor was it silent for that matter….There was also the matter that we had missed Elvis Wesley Presley on the Friday night….
A shocking discovery that old people have started their own new form of communication….
I was in Delicious (my favourite coffee shop) the other day* when a little old lady shuffled in and asked Adam (the owner) what the soup of the day was and then said “I’ll be back in half an hour” ….
When I asked Adam what that was all about, he told me she is a regular who likes to keep him informed of what she’s doing.
I’m so glad I did not miss that exchange otherwise I would never have discovered old people use a verbal form of Tweeting.
* No Mrs B those are not cake crumbs…..besides, Lemon meringue cake counts as one part of my 5 a day….as would Rhubarb crumble cake (a new favourite) if they had had any in stock….
