Round-up from Twitter

April 3rd, 2009 (10:03 pm)

  • 22:10 @tree_and_leaf Incidental music by the man who wrote 'Bananas in Pyjamas', you know. #
  • 22:25 Postponing marking until tomorrow, having just fought the sofabed, one corner of which was hovering three centimetres above ground. #
  • 14:59 @jameshamilton68 There was a rational explanation for the hovering sofabed - a peg was acting as a hook holding the entire frame up. #
  • 16:29 @tree_and_leaf Football in the north-east, like so much else, does not function by the rules of the south-east. #
  • 17:43 The reason that I mark so slowly is that I am easily distracted. #
  • 18:36 Unearthing the never-used grill pan from inside my kitchen cupboard. Eight years I've been in this flat... #
  • 19:37 Definitely overdone it on the salt... #
  • 20:10 ...but gorgonzola on mushrooms not bad, and my resistance to blue cheese is probably wilting. Still prefer cheddar to all else, though. #

When you say "cheddar", do you mean real, unpasteurised farmhouse cheddar from Somerset or generic supermarket cheddar?

I like real farmhouse cheddar best of all - though it's a while since I've had 'Ye Olde Somerset Gob-Burner' from the Covered Market - but generic mature cheddar will do. Tasteless stuff (like Co-Op Quantock Gold) is not what I'm thinking of.

We've made the mistake of trying Quantock Gold and thinking it might not be bad. It's pretty bland. My New Year's Resolution for 2008 was to try to buy unpasteurised farmhouse whenever possible.

That's a good resolution to have. There are some decent supermarket cheddars, but finding them can be difficult.
