Kapitano's top five post-christmas meals:

(5) Turkey sandwiches. The old classic - simple, quick, and needs an inch of mayonnaise to taste of anything. Becomes somewhat less interesting to eat when you've run out of bread and mayonnaise.

(4) Cheese and wine. We have eight kinds of cheese in the fridge, and at least five different bottles of wine, all gifts from uncles. There's also an enormous box of cheese crackers from an uncle last year.

(3) Turkey stew/casserole. Highly welcome, mainly because there's almost no christmas in it.

(2) Bubble and Squeak. The great british tradition of mashing leftover vegetables together, and frying the result with (in this case) chopped sausage, bacon and turkey. Can be served with pickles and/or sauce.

(1) Christmas soup. I invented this one this morning. Chop up the meat and stuffing leftovers, and heat in pureed lentils. I don't think I'll be trying it again soon. In fact I may never eat anything again.

You know the stereotype of the overweight 35 year old gay man who lives with his parents? In around three weeks, that will be me.

I'm not sure whether being the techno version of Max Bygraves is part of the stereotype. "I've arrived, and to prove it, I'm queer."

But then, 35 is probably too old to be getting interested in industrial synth bands like And One, Assemblage 23, Beborn Beton, Edenfeld, Faith Assembly, Funker Vogt, God Module, Imperative Reaction, Neuroticfish, Psyche, Psykosonic,
Seabound, Velvet Acid Christ, and Wolfsheim. I'm doing it anyway though.


  1. bubble and squeak. hee hee. No matter what it tastes like the name is fabulous.

  2. Your 'Christmas soup' item had me laughing so loud I frightened the cats.

  3. If you like Wolfsheim, you must try Melotron.


  4. Brian:
    The scots have a better name for almost the same thing - Rumbledethumps.

    Coming up: New Year soup.

    Dank für die Empfehlung.
    (Thanks for the recommendation.)

    Yep, they sound pretty good to me.
