life on mars July 11, 2008

i’ve never really been a fan of space. not keen on red dwarf, and the closest i ever came to star wars or star trek was being forced to play princess leia during countless ‘wet playtimes’ at infant school. if they let us outside i would head straight for the fence…anyway, i have no idea which one princess leia originates from and i don’t care.

i liked pigs in space though.  and button moon rocked ‘home lunchtimes’ once a week, with its blatant product placement for heinz and fairy liquid. you would have thought they could have stumped up a couple of quid in return. that would have boosted the budget to about £7.50 per series.

jay kay, by contrast, clearly had a space fetish as a child.

sweet like chocolate June 6, 2008

yes, it’s diet season and so thoughts turn to…chocolate.

well, after reading chocablog, i felt compelled to do a post of my own, on this subject close to my heart.

top five chocolate bars

  1. bounty – and i am so dying to try the bounty cherry bars they have in cybercandy
  2. cadbury’s caramel – old style, with the cartoon bunny, not the new generic brand
  3. those caramel marshmallow things they have in sainsburys – not enough chocolate/marshmallow products in the UK
  4. fry’s chocolate cream – not enough fondant either
  5. twirl – sometimes simple is best

five bars i wish they would bring back

  1. mint wispa – now!
  2. ice breaker – little blue minty chips in it
  3. coconut square – like turkish delight but blue
  4. strawberry or lime aeros – i knew there was a red aero…was too young to try them
  5. nestle secret – like a nest with chocolate mousse inside
