May ... a month of Star Wars!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

A month before I leave for the US. I am hoping my dollar against the greenback goes up, even by 5 cents would be nice. Then I get a better exchange rate. Ah for the days when it was parity.
Also wondering if I should unlock my phone before I leave rather than use my own global roaming company? I don't plan on calling home too often and can use the wi-fi in the hotels so I don't need data. And the tour companies all have my actual phone number...if they need to let me know about stuff.

Well that is a bummer, nl. It is enough to make one grumpy. It is indeed a gloomy exchange rate.

I have the day off from work, but will be busy running around. *sigh*

I shall return.

My "G" word for today is: gggaakkkk


Took my babyman to an early morning doctor appointment.
As usual, it took a long time for him to get out.
(she over books all the time)
Anyway, appointment was at 820
He didn't get called in until 830
And didn't get out until 945.
By then, me not having breakfast, I was starving.
So we stop by Dennys for a bit of food.
I have a clubhouse sandwich with fries.
There's a different taste to it that I can't figure out.
I'm thinking it was the mayo they used so I buck up and finish the sandwich.
Then part of the sandwich falls onto my plate and what do I see?

:shock: A PIECE OF A PICKLE!!! :shock:

I HATE pickles.

Who the hell puts pickles on a clubhouse sandwich?
That is soooo wrong. :P

I should have looked in the sandwich at the first bite
But I, who worked in food service for 40 years
Have never ever put pickles in a clubhouse sandwich.

ewwwww, pickles is icky! echoing Clam's gaaaaackkk!

I think the worst sandwich I ever has was a BTL and they put horse radish on it! Yuck! That stuff is awful. Totally ruined the sandwich.

It is indeed a gloomy exchange rate.
I have had worse, back in the late 80's it was down to 60c in the dollar. Should not have gone. I was hoping that the Presidential election would have made the US dollar better for me, but it stayed the same. The pound is usually very strong against my dollar, but right now with the Brexit thingy hanging over them, it is about 56c in the dollar, which is better than half and that is decent for us. I will get a better rate for my days in NZ.

I usually poke pickles off of hamburgers and such. But there's one exception. I just love peanut butter and sweet pickles sandwiches. Yum!

And I agree. I hate horseradish on ANYTHING!

Happy to see so many against pickles. :D
However my family is not all together against the awful things.
My oldest is a pickle fiend.
When he was about 8 years old
I took him and his brother to Wendy's for the first time.
Ordered burgers and fries
Was unaware of the enormous amount of pickles on the burgers.
So I gave them to Sean.
He couldn't get them in his mouth fast enough.
Told him if he kept eating them so much he'd become tired of them.
A gentleman a table over chuckled and said:
"If he's anything like me, he never will."

The guy was a prophet.
Sean eats them like they were made just for him.
It's ok, he always gets my share. :D

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 on our public holiday. It was much fun! Very silly and enjoyable, baby Groot dancing, Drax cracking up at everything, Star Lord finds his dad, Rocket steals things he really shouldn't... I don't think it was quite as good as the first one but still great. There are 5 extra bits in the credits, only 1 seems relevant to continuing storyline. The last one isn't worth staying for though, just a silly bit with Stan Lee. Not sure when it comes out for you guys? This week as well? Anyway it GGGGGGreat!

And Groot is a G word as well. :)

Looking forward to da movie. Thanks for the info, nl.



As for pickles... you are all nuts. :nono: Dill pickles are most wonderful.

They are a garlicky, gastronomical, gratifying delight.

Horse radish is good on roast beef sammiches. Just sayin'...... ;)

My nephew loves pickles. We would give him all the pickles from our sandwiches, too.

He used to drink the pickle brine out of the jar when it was empty of pickles.

I've been so busy, tidying the house for an inspection (our tenancy is due for renewal, so they like to inspect to make sure we haven't trashed the place!). I've not being paying any attention to the TVM this month. Sorry! And I have a great "G" that could have gone in my signature, but I'm sure I'll manage to squeeze it in somewhere else later on (I'll put it on for a wee while, anyway ;) ).

The letting agent didn't turn up for the inspection yesterday, and neglected to tell us that they weren't going to, so that was nice! :roll: Still, the house looks great now (although there some important has been tidied away, which I will have to go and find soon!). :D

Star Wars month ... hmm. I shall see what I can come up with. ;)
