Nothing is as it seems


iTunes is playing: Big Butter And Egg Man - Wynton Marsalis - Standard Time Vol. 3: The Resolution Of Romance [UK]
Heinz Spasgetti I was starving tonight but didn't go out eventually because I was waylaid by IM convos. And so, I 'made' supper. You know what Heinz Spasgetti is like, so no need to tell y'all. But, Bill Bryson, in one of his wonderful books called "Made In America", reveals: The great thing about a slogan was that it didn't have to be accurate to be effective. Heinz never actually had '57 Varieties' of anything. The catch-phrase arose simply because H.J. Heinz, the company's founder, decided he liked the sound of the number. Undeterred by considerations of verity, he had the slogan slapped on every one of his products he produced, which in 1896 was already far more than fifty-seven. And then, and then, I buggerise around the net and see what I find? It doesn't get any better than this. A videoclip of a TVC with Jeon Ji-Hyun in rugby AND cricket gear!

if it's baked beans or chicken curry, I'm easy.

But entire meals outta a can are a big no-no. Once I take that option, it's downhill all the way from there...

Spazghetti on toast. The toast is almost-fresh bread from the shop, so not canned. So not complete canned meal. Can? I am not unhealthy. I am not unhealthy.

Yes, canned beef stew is delicious. I always carry a few during reservist field training to supplement the already delicious MREs.
And no, the can I had last night is not of Bolognese.
