Ugh, the MP3 of Balloon has some nasty static at the start. The perils of getting something for nothing, I suppose.

We need a legal successor to Oink and we need it now.

Yeah, Ferment is a great song. Scared the hell out of me the first time I heard it. Still catches me off guard. If you ever get around to losing a purity point by smoking weed (I don't know if you have yet), be sure to put that song on for a freaky experience.

See, I just don't know how I could live without things like my salami, though my diet has more vegetables in it nowadays than it used to - primarily because I use napoli rather than bolognese sauce, and because I don't buy chicken any more due to how ridiculous the prices for it are and how little I enjoy actually preparing it.

Yeah, the pancreatitis is a bit of a pain, since certain foods are totally off-limits as they'd trigger a new attack. From my own perspective, it's disappointing that Mum can't try my cooking and baking, because just about everything I make has triggers (mainly far too much dairy). She's the one who taught me to cook and everything, so I'd love her to be able to try it. Partly because out of all people, I take her opinion most seriously on what's good and what's not. I mean, she used to be a professional cake decorator and has appeared on cooking shows and stuff, so she knows what she's on about.
I was beginning to get put off salami and other processed meats simply because of questioning exactly what's in them. I have always enjoyed them, I just didn't think they were doing any good, and the more I thought about them, the more I felt a bit ill. I was also getting off beef jerky, mainly because of the prices. The only thing I really miss is lamb yiros. One day I'll return to it!

I guess as long as it's not too serious, it's okay, not desirable of course, but okay. I had no idea she was on cooking shows, though. That is pretty awesome.

Yeah, I was sitting there thinking "well, this is a nice, soft song, certainly quite different to what I might expect on Nowhere or Mezcal He-oooolllly FUCK."

And I think the odds of me losing a purity point on weed are pretty much zero. Can't say I'm exactly interested, and even if I were, I wouldn't know where or how to get some. Ha, almost made it sound like sex there. Which also isn't going to lose me any purity points soon. Meanwhile, Jen's probably lost another purity point in the time it took me to write this (seriously, she said whatever she's up to tonight will take her down to at least 17%).

See, if I were too conscious of where meat came from, I'd probably go vegetarian just due to being nauseated. But then I think that probably everything else is going through nasty processes too. Vegetables, biscuits, bread, orange juice - so much today is processed to within an inch of its life. So I just ignore all of it, since I am not in a position right now to do much about it. If I could live in a nice little country town and get everything fresh, somewhat like when I was little, then I imagine my diet might change a lot. Right now, financial concerns dominate.

Yeah, my mother's friend had a bit of a cooking show and Mum assisted her sometimes back in the early and mid-nineties. Professionally, she mainly stuck to cake baking and decorating, though she sometimes did general catering as well. All through my childhood, the kitchen was full of cakes and biscuits and stuff ...

I was hoping to have a variety of cheeses, but even the cheapest camembert was fairly expensive. I opted for a fairly cheap one, but not the cheapest, because the cheapest was the Coles home brand that I know from experience with their blocks of tasty is just fucking dreadful.

Wait, coming to think of it, I think I have some aged tasty lying around ... that'd be some good variety. Wish I had some dried fruits too, since that would probably go well with the pinot gris.
Haha, that's okay.

Yeah, I think if you're just on your own the best bet is to get either one block or some special variety-pack with a few different types of cheese, but I don't know if they're particularly common, or cheap. I usually find Cole's products reliable, but I guess I'll keep away from their cheeses!

Yeah, some nice dried apricot with grapes is always a pleasure.

OK, it's almost rugby time. Let's get this party started with a glass of port. I suppose that logically, I should start with the pinot gris and progress to the port, but I simply feel like port first up.

Wonder if my drunkposting this week will be as disappointing as last week.

Haha, no I can totally understand that. As for Jen, what the hell? Is she having a blood orgy at a kindergarten?

Yeah, most stuff in supermarkets is nasty to an extent. But to me that's different than realising that there are muscle tendons in my mouth that belonged to a living creature. It's not so much a moral thing as that I find it somewhat disturbing. Anyway, I think if anything I may take breaks after a few months, make it an on-and-off vegetarianism. Even if it just means one or two yiroi a year.

Haha, that is awesome. I'm not the biggest fan of cakes, but I imagine things would have been different if you and I shared mothers.

Yeah, I looked for something resembling a variety pack, but the only thing was some pack that had three differently aged kinds of tasty. It really inspired a "so fucking what" in me, so I just stuck with the camembert. I love camembert. I was very disappointed with the cheese selection at my supermarket, though - I kept an eye out for haloumi after your positive mention of it, but none in sight.

And as for Coles' products, they seem to have two home brands, one of which is shit and one is good. The Coles Farmland orange juice is what I drink - sure, it's processed in the extreme, but I honestly like it. Meanwhile, the blandly labelled no-frills one just with the white label is absolutely VILE and induces nausea. I find this holds true for cheese too, though I've lately been buying Mainland anyway for my blocks of tasty as it's cheapest at the local supermarket.

Tasty tends to taste pretty similar to me all the time, so I'd react the same as you. Plus, I wouldn't want to have just one type of cheese. Madly lame. Haloumi is delicious, but you'd have to be prepared to get a little bit of cooking done, perhaps before you got into the drink.

There is a Coles brand called "You'll Love Coles" or something here, don't know if that's the same that you guys have. That one is very reliable and cheap. Then there's those bland ones, like you said, which tend to be of low quality.

Hey, here's a little camembert tip for you - spread some sun-dried tomato dip on the biscuit before putting the cheese on. Some may find the taste sickly, but I think it rocks.

She said something about questions 67 and 94, which I was genuinely surprised she hadn't lost already.

Ah, fuck you Australia, 3-0. Wait, I'm meant to be going for them against France. Meh. Fuck the Wallabies. Fuck France more. This is great; I can bitch when they both score!

Oh, I know what you mean. I've always been somebody who just refuses to make the mental connection between what's on my plate and living animals I've seen. As long as that connection is not there, I'm fine.

Ah, fuck you Australia, 8-0. Good try though, great kick to set it up.

Yeah, I don't know how people live on commercial cakes and stuff. They're so ... over-processed and lack substance. My mother's chocolate cake, however, is mindblowing.

Haha, 7 just advertised a Battle Of The Choirs show with somebody saying "there's no excuse for not knowing U2's lyrics". What, everybody knows Treasure now?

I downloaded a Firefox add on that shows image previews of pages when you search on Google - I tested it by searching for "sex party".

And would you believe it, the Wiki article for "sex party" comes up. The death of internet porn?

Will probably move onto the pinot gris and get out the cheese and crackers once it's done.

Yeah, this aged tasty I have is just like normal tasty, but more crumbly. Ah well, works on crackers well at least. Hope it goes with the pinot gris. There we go, the port's done. Aiming to down three glasses during this half of rugby.

And yeah, I was more thinking of using the haloumi in my lunches, actually.

The "You'll Love Coles" stuff is here and yeah, tends to be reliable. I usually get their chips, for instance. Why pay $2 more for Red Rock Deli chips? Sure, Red Rock Deli fucking owns, but not for the prices they charge.

Oh damn, I've no dips to try that, and it sounds really good too. Pantry's rather bare in most regards, to tell the truth, thanks to rising food prices.

Wow, I'm surprised by that, too! I wonder which others she hasn't done yet. Maybe I should stop wondering.

Yeah, totally understood. I'm not all PETA and shit, of course. I hate PETA. But I found myself thinking about meat more often and where it comes from. Hell, I feel sort of vicious eating broccoli since I know they have nerves, too. Anyway, don't really need to go much further with this, since it's sort of a blurry vision for me.

As I said, not the hugest fan of cake here, but a good chocolate cake is divine. Horribly, sickeningly divine. Can she still cook it?
