Is it possible to be so bored? I've had too long a day already to stay on in the office and work; I'll get in early tomorrow instead. So I have come home.

I don't really want to cook, in fact I don't really know what I want to eat. On Friday night I had a craving for curry - I hadn't had Indian food forever.

That lasted through 'til Sunday - with some still in the freezer - all for £16. Long gone those Islington days/prices...

Two mains (one with an accompanying veg. curry), two nans, two poppadom. I boiled my own rice - I may be prepared to spend £7k on Olympic tickets, but £1.80 on basmati rice when I have the raw stuff at home - get away!

As a result I was curried out. As a result, last night, I had battered sausage and chips from the local chipper - with curry sauce. Fish and Chip shop curry sauce is very different. Not curry at all, just a hint of curry flavour.

But I couldn't finish it. Too many chips - always the way with the local.

All for £3.10.

Still bored...

When I was in the kitchen earlier this evening I thought I should have a glass of wine. I realise that it itself a symptom of boredom. In fact, I know that boredom is a driver for my drinking.I do it simply because there is nothing else to do!

I don't really want to sit down and watch the TV. That's too involved.

It is probably loneliness - missing mon C. Though this time next week, he'll be back!!! Super good.

Let Me In

Wow! What a great re-make. Loved it.

The top picture in your post puzzled me at first. I couldn't figure out what it is... I mean, I could tell it was some kind of food, but what ? It's french-fries (chips) with curry sauce on it, right.

Bordeom wastes the mind - maybe reconnect with a friend - read? I know it's an effort - but I usually cook when I'm bored!

Btw - that last pic is a bit puzzling! Is that from a movie or something?

Chips (fries for American readers) and curry sauce, AGD.

SteveA - from Let Me In, the remake of Let The Right One In, which is an excellent remake.

I watched 'Let Me In' last Saturday. I liked it a lot..
The chips with curry did upset my stomach a bit at 9:20 in the morning...

MadeInScotland said...

Well, Nik, at least you didn't eat them at 9.20am!
