There used to be a great place like that on the main street at Hoek van Holland. Very handy for the ferry. Last time I was there it had gone.  Sad

The ones anywhere near here are all rubbish.

Just came back from spandau, wall to wall döner heaven and halved my weekly shopping bill in a big turkish supernarket.

€0.29 a kilo for chicken offcuts. An 800g tin of decent dog food is €1,79.

Tis an awesome shop.

This is one of those moments when the differences between UK English and American English totally changes the context of the sentence.

In America that would read as "Best eaten when extremely angry."

Hmmm.... maybe in this case it still works.  Just for different reasons.

US 'pissed' is UK 'pissed off'.

UK 'pissed' is 'inhaled too much alcohol'. (Ym's permanent state.)

In the US "pissed" and "pissed off" are pretty much the same.  Saying, "I was really pissed at the time" means the speaker was very angry.  Saying, "That really pissed me off" means that really made the speaker angry.  The two are interchangeable over here, but they both mean angry.

My nephew was recently given the same news.  He--former college jock, frat rat, beer-ponger, Burning Man Bro'ski--just turned 29.
