    So, if you lived in a terraced house, you could have said 4 mates around for beer at a distance - but only in the front garden?

          I often email Mrs D3 when at my desk, she gets it immediately at hers..convenient, no need to look at a phone etc.

          Though i can't say anything, this is a quote somebody put online from me on IRC 15 years ago:
          It does seem strange at first glance but theres a cute hoor element to emailing as opposed to using the phone to text as hes never spotted texting on the phone so he appears to be locked into his work on that computer screen and the bosses notice this...hire this man.

          (TarAldarion) just a bit shocked that my roommate is pregnant
          (Ruu) was it a shock to her also?
          (TarAldarion) dunno yet
          (TarAldarion) havnt talked to her
          (TarAldarion) read her blog

          I would like to see the timeline on that exchange. A time stamp tells a lot, a short burst frequency which looks the case here, or a lapse on no reply best txt again. Ruu seems a pretty cool customer.

            That or jump over the back wall? Run through the house without breathing or touching anything?

              Actual ingress seems prohibited

              On a similar but related topic, are there a lot of people out there who haven't had sex for 2 months I wonder?

                Possibly, although I know of one single person who has still been hooking up with randomers on Tinder and getting the ride on several occasions over the last 9 weeks, I'm sure they can't be the only one!

                  Maybe he has a special technique for maintaining the prescribed distance?

                    • You can still only go 5km
                    • Only new shops opening will be garden centres etc
                    • You can meet people you don't live with at a distance in parks


                    that's it, right?

                    It's not mad big bang moment

                    You'd be surprised at the amount of people using the 'homewares' category to reopen. My entire industry is back on Mon pretty much.

                          Same.

                          And I'd say most of my friends have been at house parties the last few weeks.

                                Dr Holohan has said from Monday gatherings of four are limited to outdoor settings and people should continue to maintain social distancing.

                                However, he clarified that gatherings of four are not limited to parks and may also include garden settings.

                                But he added that is provided "people maintain a common sense adherence to the public health guidelines.

                                "It would be wrong to say that couldn't be in someone's back garden," according to Dr Holohan.

                                However, he said BBQs are still not permitted under current guidelines

                                            I once went to the Suki Bumi restaurant in Amsterdam (apropos of very little )

                                            Food was good , would return.

                                                      Last week I was heading over to the shop, was getting the kids Calippos. Asked her did she want anything and she clearly said a choc ice.

                                                      Got back with the choc ice and she says 'wtf is that, where's me Feast?'

                                                      Still arguing with me today that she said Feast.
                                                      Obviously you should get her to email you her choice of ice cream next time!!

                                                            Want to learn about it. Flavours are incredible, am messing about with cooking it but know fuck all about it.

                                                                      Can anyone recommend a good Thai cook book?
                                                                      I still have the 'cook book' from when I did a Thai cooking course in Chang Mai in 2002.

                                                                      I'll never forget it. We booked it up but managed (quite easily) to go on the absolute lash the night before. There is nothing quite like going on a session for 18 hours, having a few hours kip, and then being brought around the morning market (which included the fish market) to buy all the necessary ingredients for your cookery class.

                                                                      Have done pretty much all of the recipes over the years but most have to be translated from Thai-English to actual English.

                                                                      If there is anything in particular you are looking to cook, let me know me know and I'll check to see if there is a recipe for it in the book.

                                                                                    Only reason I had one is due to have a bite of an M&Ms bar (Mars) and being told they’re pretty much the same as Crunch.

                                                                                    Obv the +ev play is Crunch going forward to I’ll return to them.

                                                                                        50% of people with the virus are asymptomatic, fail to see why kids would be different

                                                                                          That's the Tom yum recipe I use, but that's a great site in general.
                                                                                          You'll see same ingredients pop up, fish sauce, oyster sauce, good soy sauce, lemongrass , fresh ginger which freezes well. I've never cooked a thai dish and not been able to get the ingredients in oriental pantry on Moore st.

                                                                                          https://40aprons.com/tom-kha-soup-whole30/

                                                                                          Pretty good also. When you get used to the same flavors you'll be able to cook a Thai style noodle broth or stir fry easy.

                                                                                          If you're not arsed making your own pastes like me most of the time the Mae Ploy ones are the best in my opinion. They have them in the shop above along with the chilli paste for the Tom yum which is used in plenty of other dishes

A lot of the research suggests asymptomatic = low contagion because the viral load is low and you're not coughing it out into the atmosphere.

Need a mask to buy anything and everyone scared of their shadow. Plus masks are horrible. Can't imagine de-confinement is going to rescue the high streets.

                                                                                                                    That's the Tom yum recipe I use, but that's a great site in general.
                                                                                                                    You'll see same ingredients pop up, fish sauce, oyster sauce, good soy sauce, lemongrass , fresh ginger which freezes well. I've never cooked a thai dish and not been able to get the ingredients in oriental pantry on Moore st.

                                                                                                                    https://40aprons.com/tom-kha-soup-whole30/

                                                                                                                    Pretty good also. When you get used to the same flavors you'll be able to cook a Thai style noodle broth or stir fry easy.

                                                                                                                    If you're not arsed making your own pastes like me most of the time the Mae Ploy ones are the best in my opinion. They have them in the shop above along with the chilli paste for the Tom yum which is used in plenty of other dishes
                                                                                                                    Brilliant stuff man, thanks. I'll head in there as soon as I can.

                                                                                                                    Was in Eurasia yesterday, they always have a few exotic pastes and that that you won't find in an ordinary shop.

                                                                                                                    Picked up a Prik Khing curry paste, gonna give that a lash.

                                                                                                                    Not tonight though, I'm making your koftas again. They're outstanding.
