Bitch on the Blog

May 12, 2011


Filed under: Communication — bitchontheblog @ 07:02

Sweethearts, I should write letters to those who actually care about me. Insert smiley. Instead I throw myself once more at the mercy of the world’s court. Not least Ireland.

Apart from our shared interest in needlecraft, every morning GM and I both vainly wish for ONE thing: Ursula Bin Liner, error message, South of England, has NOT said anything. Yeah, well, we both should be so lucky.

I wake with a start. No, make that startled. Memory loss. Revisiting blogs: I hope I did NOT say ANYTHING.

A wish rarely fulfilled but just now I am happy because I didn’t find myself. The relief akin to an apple, a slice of cheese and a cup of cocoa.

Going over to Con’s now to see what cuckoo I laid in his nest.




  1. There is certainly a great value in forgetting what it is that has been left in the comment section of someone else’s blog. It makes sleeping at night so much easier.

    • Looney, I tell you, I tell you, I tell you: One of these days I’ll find myself in the wrong ward, nay word.

      Am done, doomed and dusted. Rarely do I dare visit YOUR blog. I might have to think (of something).

      • Unforgiveable, FORGOT to mention barnacle.

        More rubbish, yours,

  2. I can’t remember what my comments were about the next day–the next hour? It’s easier to remember the person who stomped on my comment.

    • Know what you mean, BHB. However, my motto: Let other people’s comments shine underneath their dense bushel and embarrass themselves at the rate of their imbecility. Each to their own.

      I have to say, BHB, you do bring out the poet in me. And the painter. Mixing not only colours and images but metaphors too.

  3. COCOA! How can you spoil cheese and apple with Cocoa? After the day I’ve had to be assaulted by such a thought is enough to make me want to go and jump from Tower Bridge…oh can’t do that …I have mislaid my over 60s pass…and NOW some person has left the door to the kitchen open whilst warming up their stew for dinner! The house now stinks!

    Now a good glass of English Beer with an apple and cheese…not bad…

    • A house with the aroma of warm stew does not stink!

      • Well, it depends, BHB. On the stew – or whether you are one of those people who doesn’t like cooking smells wafting through the house. I don’t mind whatever wafts around the house other than that awful stink of Angel’s Eau de Toilette. It’s not a stink as such (I myself recommended the scent to him) but if I’ve said it once I’ve said a million times to him: Less is more. Still, what are windows for if not to open them?

    • I agree, David. Who said that I have them all at once, as a combo? I second the beer, or a glass of dry cider with the apple and the cheese. Funny thing is, and maybe you can relate to this: I hardly ever drink Cocoa. Although always have it in the house (Green & Black – organic) but use it mostly when baking.

      Like Coffee, a cup of Cocoa is more of an idea than a reality to me. The warmth. Something homely. And – and maybe it’s just me – cocoa works best when you don’t make it yourself but have it delivered to your place of repose.

      Insert NO smiley: These are serious matters. Hope you won’t find your bus pass in a hurry.

  4. I can not bring myself to drink cocoa or hot chocolate (not even Charbonnel & Walker) it’s the hot milk, you see…perhaps if I had the cocoa beans to roast and grind and then boil in water it would be a different matter. Agree about Green and Blacks for cooking…whenit comes to solid choc …when in the States I found some Lindt 99% and I also have a block of 100% Nicaraguan….. grated over a Chili dish (like a chilli soup)and it makes a real impact!

    • Magpie, one of these days we’ll have to meet over a pot of Chilly Con Carne.

      I believe Tesco do sell a fine can’t remember now 75 % or so cocoa solids Lindt.

      As to 100 % Nicaraguan: Do bring him for dinner.

    • I get my 100% chocolate from Chocolate Man in Oregon through my Foodnerd group. It comes in “buttons”. I pop 1 in my mouth along with 2 almonds & 3 raisins. (This sounds like GM’s video of her putting together her breakfast. …3 raisins, 4 calling birds, 5 golden rings… Oh Got carried away.)

      These buttons aren’t cheap & shipped from far away. I wonder if Baker’s Chocolate from our grocery store is the same but will be cheaper.
