Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
I agree with Margaret Morrell, in that the more Tim Tams per packet, the better! However, I think she fails to acknowledge the fun that can come about in constructing creative ways to decide who gets the 11th Tim Tam. Growing up in Australia, I have friends in the outback who have swum through creeks at night naked in order to earn the last Tim Tam. Where would the challenge be if all Tim Tams were equally divisible?
Cornish Fairings Review
I was surprised that you did not mention the cherry fairings in your report. They are fab and the high point of any rain sodden Cornish holiday.
|Nicey replies: Don't be surprised, I thought we would limit ourselves to the classics. Perhaps its because we had such lovely weather we didn't have to resort to them.|
We have a China Metallurgical Equipment Corporation Liquid Dispensing Machine Mark IIV in our place of work. It is excellent. It can “down” a wide variety of airborne targets traveling in excess of Mach 1 at ranges of up to 20km, using a on-board computerized tracking and targeting system integrated with a powerful radar. Since the management purchased the machine we have been responsible for the loss of several BMI, BA and Ryan Air flights, and have contributed no small amount towards the Air Defence of the nearby NSA base. EasyJet have openly admitted to altering all internal UK flight routes to avoid our locale, and we are steadily getting more and more used having no ceiling in the kitchen, and of course the slight noise/smoke/visual “impression” which is left on the working day each time the Mark IIV detects and launches against a “incoming target”.
Still haven`t got close enough to the machine to try the tea, coffee or hot choc unfortunately, but perhaps when it runs out of missiles I`ll give it a go.
|Nicey replies: Hoorah, it sounds quite timid compared to most vending machines.
Tim Tam vs Penguin Review
I am wondering whether you have any idea of the cruelty you regularly inflict on lovers of the best biscuits in the world - Tim Tams?
This cruelty lies in the fact that in every packet there is a prime number of biscuits - 11 - divisible only by itself.
This means that unless one is a lone biscuit eater ( and I don't think even I could eat a whole packet ) you, Arnotts ensure either a total fall-out amongst a group gathered together to partake of said Tim Tams, or at least one disgruntled person ( cries of "unfair" are heard ). It is, after all, a well known fact that a packet of Tim Tams must be consumed at one sitting.
I beg you to rectify this sorry situation by putting 12 biscuits in your packets in future. In this way, when 2, 3, 4 or 6 are gathered together, peace will reign supreme.
|Nicey replies: No don't mind me you just have a go at Arnotts.|
||Thought you might like to know that the man at the animal rescue centre told me to feed my 4 baby hedgehogs Pedigree Chum, and as a little treat.... digestive biscuits. He was very insistent that the dog food was Pedigree Chum 'it's what they prefer madam', but was unable to advise on the type of digestives, so they are getting Tescos own and lumping it. However if anyone out there knows better. Whilst on the subject of hedgehogs ON NO ACCOUNT GIVE THEM BREAD AND MILK IT KILLS THEM. |
|Nicey replies: That's lovely.
Its very impressive that bread and milk kills them. Do you know if other combinations of baked and dairy products do for them, say yogurt and croissants or just a cheese sandwich? I suppose it would be cruel to try to get to the bottom of that one.
