After an hour and a half unmolested in the kitchen, I have achieved the following things:

1. Sausage meat for breakfast tomorrow
2. Washing up
3. Another batch of mayonnaise after the last one got incorporated into some wicked coronation chicken
4. Listened to Physical Graffiti
5. Refilled the crudites trough

Not too shabby, says I

Satire, my arse. This is race-hate.

Nice article here about how claiming it's satire really doesn't work.

Der Stürmer was something of an unofficial paper for the Nazi party during their rise to power in the thirties. Founded in 1928, they specialized in producing crude caricatures of Jews, Catholics, Africans and leftists, playing a supporting role in demonizing all of these groups throughout the...

For 2016, I wish shampoo for my real friends and real poo for my sham friends. May your life be replete with decent human beings for the next lap of the Sun.

Only a story. Only the most important thing in the whole world.

Share everywhere, good people, share everywhere.
From Star Wars to Mad Max, a new, more diverse kind of storytelling went mainstream this year - and the backlash shows how much it matters.

I'll just pop this here before I go and find some more interesting books to read.
It is a fact universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of an opinion must be in want of a correction. Well, actually, no it isn’t, but who doesn’t

For those who are interested, this week's homemade mayonnaise is balsamic flavour. I say 'this week's', but it'll probably only last until Hump Day.

And by the time we've got to the middle of the week, I'll probably have some bacon fat to play with, so, baconnaise...

Feature-length This Is Indexed, about life-changing events and how we deal with them. Deep, challenging, ultimately hopeful and possibly magical.

Hopefully you'll be able to find something among the graphs and paragraphs. I did.

So, I have two sisters and a brother, and we're all of an age to have long-term partners and various sizes of adorable spawn. Christmas has, for several years, been a house full of people coming, going, cooking, napping and passing babies backwards and forwards. We're too many people to all do one thing together at the same time, so there's always three or four activities going on at once.

One of which, for the past 5 years, has been the colour-in tablecloth. It's a large sheet of paper with a range of festive motifs haphazardly sprawled across it, ready and waiting for anyone's felt-tip pen. The first year we got it, we thought it was for the kids, but we quickly found all four of us siblings hunched over it at the same time, completely engrossed and taking it very seriously.

It's become a much-anticipated fixture at our family Christmases since then, and every year I find some new stupid thing to do. From the angel boldly trumpeting comedic flatulence, to the fairisle pattern on the reindeer's saddle that bordered on pointillism, there's always something. You don't want to know how long the jar of jelly beans took last year.

So, this year's effort, pictured here, is a small rodent spoiling for a punch-up. Merry Christmas to you and yours, good plussers, and if your family is anything like mine, do look into getting one of these tablecloths. They rule.
