balanced diet

Before sailing to Queensland recently, Cap'n Kev came to visit, and to let me fix up his computer, so he'll be able to play Diablo during the voyage.

While I was busy on his laptop and couldn't see what he was doing, he quietly slipped some provisions into my fridge, as a thank-you.

Well, my partner has a habit of going to the supermarket without first checking what we already have in the fridge. She often comes home with food that we don't need, and I complain about the waste when it ends up being thrown out or given to the dog.

So later in the day, when I opened the freezer and discovered an extra two cartons of chocolate fudge ice-cream, I naturally assumed she had done it again, and I complained bitterly to her. We had a bit of a row. I had to apologise when I realised it was Cap'n Kev who had bought the extra ice cream.

Then in the evening, I noticed a big yellow carton of ready-made custard. We only ever buy custard on special occasions, and it's not for eating, if you know what I mean. Well, not for eating in the normal way. Not realising the custard was another of Kev's presents, I assumed the partner had bought it as a come-on, so I put it to good use in the bedroom.

So Kev's presents caused both a conflict between me and the partner, and a making-up. Everything balances up.



On the subject of food, this morning I had a 3-course breakfast - green tea with salted cashews from the market; mega-muesli soaked overnight; and the remains of a tub of vanilla ice-cream containing implants of chocolate. The chocolate chunks had the same consistency as a lump of lebanese after you heat it in a flame. Not that I would know.

And thanks to the balanced diet, I have finally managed to put on a whole kilo of weight. For the first time ever, I've got what I believe they call love-handles. This is encouraging!

ummm....your custard serves the same purpose as my whip cream and strawberries!
Maybe we should try the custard sometime.....what flavor is best and do you serve at room temperature or straight from the fridge? ;)
Really, would love to know!

Adolf! Heil! I've tried that custard in the earhole thing and in my view it's vastly over-rated. Stick with the lederhosen! Bound to help! Hotboy

I hadn't realised that custard was an aphrodisiac.

By the way, for hush hush reasons, I've had to change my profile name to Kalimbuka, though its still me, Menzies.

I see that robmcj has gone underground as well. Possibly for the same reasons.

Mingin'! Remember what I told you. No raspberry juice through the week; never eat moluscs; and don't show it to the schoolgirls! Hope this helps. Hotboy

As a schoolkid, I used to come home and make myself Bird's custard for a snack- all cornflour. I do hope you have rubber sheets, rob- that custard in the ear sounds messy.
