    Nicely set up. If Windies do well in the early exchanges England will find it hard to find a Time / Score tradeoff the Windies couldn't attack making the current 30/1 about them winning could look huge at some stage in the afternoon.

      Ouch, 37 $5k ME tickets up top. All in pre with AA v 99 for a top 20 chip stack. 99 Rivers the straight. Almost got sick in my mouth.

        Fifth day pitch, historically anything over 220 is a huge target. Should be a fun listen anyway - pimping Guerilla Cricket as a great alternative to traditional sources.

                Things I've learnt about BennyHiFi this weekend: 1) His life is so awesome that one of his great life regrets is not saying hello to a musician; 2) He was a dangerous guy to know during the troubles.

                  ah, you do miss inflicting it though

                  I do remember laying a similar beat down on someone in a big donkament back in the day. All the chips went in on the flop and when we flipped them over I was so far behind that I stood up and put on the coat. Some ludicrous inside straight runner-runner runout then ensued and lo and behold, the coat is off and a mountain of chips is being pushed my way. I then made the mistake of saying 'sorry' to the victim of this crime. Cue fireworks. "DON'T FUCKING APOLOGISE!!!!" followed by him slowly heading for the door emitting a stream of invective against fate that only got louder with each outburst.

                  Ah, the good auld days.

                      I had forgotten how utterly soul-destroying the game is at times. I have had really key flips at major points in tournaments go against me over the last week about 10 times when most of them were 70/30 or better. I know you have won a load just to get to that point but man they hurt so much more when they are all going against you deep in tourneys. Silly but considering the time I spent playing it has all been a bit of a dream to play the ME. I thought all those bad beats were saving up for today's run. Poker gods don't care about your dreams.

                            Benny is one of those 'I'd love to go for a pint with him' type of guys.

                            They're the best guys.

                                Doing good Gil, thank you very much.

                                They're doing really well, hopefully home tomorrow. A good bit of recovery needed for my wife physically, thankfully she has a good bit of support with it.

                                      Maybe go to an actual tailor an get measured and fitted?

                                              Looks like England got the number just right, 85 overs to stonewall a draw.

                                              Would rather 33/1 the Windies win than 5/4 the draw but its England's to give away.

                                                    Just catching up on the last few days here. Congrats Lazare on #3. Is that 3 girls now or was the middle kid a boy?

                                                    I spent most of Saturday and half of Sunday with the 8 month old lad, while the almost 3 year old lad was away with his mother. Would have been grand apart from the fact that I was putting up a trampoline any time the baby was asleep, as he can't be left alone at all now. He can pull himself up on furniture, toys, anything really, but he hasn't figured out that he has no balance yet so invariably falls over every time, often in areas he shouldn't be falling over in so needs constant attention because as soon as he is left down he bolts straight for the nearest leg/couch/toy. 3yo loved the trampoline when he got home anyway, so that's good. Hopefully it'll give him somewhere to use his boundless energy.

They clearly don't work on commission as my opening gambit was that I could spend about €200-300. It looks very very good in fairness.

                                                        I think because sales can only legally happen twice a year in France, even the sales staff get caught up in the bargain hunting excitement. But the sales this year are ridiculous. Just about every shop is half price on everything. No messing around. I'd say if you made an offer for a piece of fixture and fitting they'd even consider it.
                                                        I hope you bought a few of them in slightly different colours to be able to mix it up.

It was already a fun experience because I basically have no Spanish and the shopkeeper had no English. The shoes were great, and the price, which was on the sole, just at the limit of what I was prepared to pay. When I paid he handed back most of the money I gave him, it turned out there was a sale on; everything was 1/3rd the price of normal, which he managed to convey to me through gestures. I would never have known if he had let me walk out.

                                                                          I spent most of Saturday and half of Sunday with the 8 month old lad, while the almost 3 year old lad was away with his mother. Would have been grand apart from the fact that I was putting up a trampoline any time the baby was asleep, as he can't be left alone at all now. He can pull himself up on furniture, toys, anything really, but he hasn't figured out that he has no balance yet so invariably falls over every time, often in areas he shouldn't be falling over in so needs constant attention because as soon as he is left down he bolts straight for the nearest leg/couch/toy. 3yo loved the trampoline when he got home anyway, so that's good. Hopefully it'll give him somewhere to use his boundless energy.
                                                                          Haha, they're wild.

They are "cooked" in an acidic juice like lime. Stop it going tough like when cook with high heat. But it's served cold, which people don't expect and imagine all sorts. A bit silly of them to leave the word off the menu, but I'd say that's what they were getting at with marinaded in lime and chilli.

                                                                                          Also, your companion was talking out of their hoop with the toxins. The part you ate is the muscle for closing the shell, that's it. Scallops have mouths and organs like anything else, but they are discarded. Except for the roe, which can be left of or removed (it was removed from yours).

I'm sure its not the first time they've received back a semi-full plate of the starter in the kitchen. I guess also that SatNav was far from the first person to wonder if there was a pepper sauce to go with the steak. Some chefs get so up themselves.
                                                                                                  Doesn't like pepper sauce but likes pointless greenery sitting on the steak and those stupid giant chips. GTFO.

                                                                                                        Why the forward slash /companion? Our author is clearly subconsciously uncomfortable with merely describing her dinner pal as a 'friend', which none of us would have blinked an eye at reading. But some part of her needs to define things even further to emphasize the importance of this relationship to her. There's a story there.

                                                                                                        Maybe our authoress has commitment issues and is unsure as to whether she can designate this unknown person as a friend or merely a companion. I would think 'friend' denotes a higher degree of regard. 'Companion' suggests a more professional role such as a carer to an old person. Although this could be a more seedy relationship and perhaps this friend\companion is a paid escort of some sort.

                                                                                                        Lots to think about here and silently judge SatNav for things she may or may not have done.

                                                                                                        Of course the iodine in the shellfish may just have affected her frontal lobes and she has no idea what she is babbling on about either. Or she is still hammered on cocktails. Not everything has to be deep and meaningful.

I pity the fool that asks for a well done steak. It's a rock I've overheard many waiters willingly die on, like someone has asked for a foreign exotic cuisine on which the chef is unfamiliar. Think it's also a bit iffy even asking for salt (notice how so few French restaurant tables have salt and pepper on them?) as I guess its a criticism of the fundamental seasoning ability of the chef.
                                                                                                          I was in a very good (in fact this one) South African steak restaurant once and an Irish lady made the mistake of asking for her steak well done. There were about a dozen of us at the table and the waiter politely noted the order and then said mildly 'chef won't like that'.

                                                                                                          Sure enough, 2 minutes later, this enormous Afrikaner bursts out of the kitchen with his face red as a beetroot and starts roaring in Afrikaans. The jist of it being that no-one should insult his meat by ordering all the flavour to be grilled out of it and that the person who did this was a savage who should probably be grilled themselves. She changed her order to peri-peri chicken while the rest of us broke our shit laughing.

                                                                                                          Chef had a whiskey with us after service and was more genial at that point.

                                                                                                              I was watching him with eyebrows fully raised amusement as he emphatically explained how he would like his steak, each instruction accompanied with an emphatic slashing gesture with hand to illustrate its importance "no sauce at all", "no vegetables", "no potatoes" "just the steak alone", "nothing else at all".
                                                                                                              Poor young foreign looking waiter beginning to look slightly anxious at the weight of this added responsibility.

Well now I don't like them now. They looked absolutely beautiful. Took a bite yuk they were cold, raw
