Today - we decided to have fish and chips for tea, this was a good option as Claire had some plaice (Which i don't like)in the freezer for her and Darcie and chicken for Harvey. It was only my tea and the chips that were missing - this was the first mistake of the whole tea time tragedy.
I set off on my merry way down to Fisherman's Wharf in Festing road with my list and £8 in my pocket. Unfortunately the opening hours had changed to "Not open Sundays!" - "Ahhh F*ck!" Quote I! so I turned around and walked to the other chip shop that i know of - this unfortunately is at the other end of Fratton. After a nice longish walk I get there to the sign of "Not open Sundays!" Ahhh F*ckty F*ck F*Ck! This unfortunately isn't the end of my sorry (all be it fairly short tail!)
I contacted the better half and discussed options with her, pizza was too expensive so was indian and Chinese - so i decide to go for the students / drunks favourite - Kebab! now there are two around here Effes - which I've been to in the past and like - or the one that i was currently standing outside of - The Fratton Kebab House. Kebabs - kebab right!
So I order two large portions on chips and a Donor Kebab (salad but no sauce) , and I sit down and start to play with my phone (damn you pinball). I get awoken from my trance with the call of "£6.50 Boss!" Being the trusting soul i am- I hand over the cash, take the (ripped) bag and slouch back to the flat.
The pile of shite that i had now purchased now became apparent to me - the two larger portions of chips where no larger than half portions, the boxes were only the size of a burger box, plus they were half full, the kids were alright but we had only a handful each! but the kebab was the best bit - i poured the greasy disaster onto my plate to find a Raw, stale and in pieces pitta bread dumped in the bottom of the box (which was now on top of my food) Yummy! after bitching for a bit i resign myself to eating it or being hungry and tuck in.After a few mouthfuls of dodgy tasting meat i find something in my mouth that i cant eat. A nice large piece of plastic - yum yum yum! Now i have to wonder - how much of my Kebab actually came out of the bin.
This is why i implore you - dont go there! not if you value your money or possibly your digestive track!

Okay, so today i was given my parents old computer - yay! its a lot better than my old one and should make work easier. Although its a couple of years old - it seems to run very well, 2.6ghz processor and over 700 MB's Ram. i know that this would be put to shame by lots of new computers but to me its just the DB's :D Although i have suddenly found my self listening to ever sound coming from it and worrying that by installing software I'm suddenly going to make it run like a toffee stuck to the bottom of dead man's she :D
I'll have a look at the RAM situation later - if i can i shall see how much i can upgrade (if at all) the RAM, it'd be very cool to join the 1 GB group :D
In other news....
I have an Irish accent running through my head after watching a comedian on TV, this is with addition to the Benny Hill theme that i have been suffering with...!
