I'm sorry, but after a week of wondering, I'm just going to have to break my silence and ask...

Why are there so many Sikhs working for Gate Gourmet?

I can't be the only one who's been thinking that, can I? I don't have a problem with it, I'm just curious. Is it because BA serve a lot of curries?

PrezAnyhoo, tomorrow is Lisa's birthday, so I'm heading off to Brighton today where I intend to drag her to the cinema to finally see 'Overnight' before midnight when I officially have to do what she wants for 24 hours. Naturally I plan to be asleep at 11:45pm.

We agreed that I wouldn't get her a present, because I've paid for the big Fry-up tomorrow night, and a Stereophonics concert on Tuesday at the venue where Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest. So the place has a history of quality music. Which makes you wonder why they booked the Stereophonics. Only joking, I love them really. And I'm sure we'll have a niiice dayyy. (They'd bloomin' well better play that one - it's the only one I know).

So like I say, there'll be no large, beautifully gift-wrapped present from me this year.

While I'm here, can I just say how much I love Lisa's friend Lorraine. We're cat-sitting for her again at the end of September (oh yes - brace yourself for another two weeks of Timmy tales), and the woman is not only kind and generous, she also has the uncanny knack of knowing exactly what Lisa would like most in life. It filled my heart with warmth and joy to get an excited text message from Lisa last night, saying that Lorraine had just turned up with an electric steamer for her birthday. It's just what Lisa has always wanted (because let's face it, she's basically been steaming broccoli for the past year using a set of saucepans with holes in them), and she couldn't have been more pleased.

I naturally shared her excitement and joy, and will be personally thanking Lorraine for her generosity when I next see her.

So anyway, anyone want to buy a steamer?
