So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Strange day at work. Turns out that the Guardian Crossword features a number of clues about guns. That in itself is not a great cause for concern, what is a bit worrying is the knowledge that the apprentice has of numerous firearm capabilities, including the "Uzi" and the "Kalashnikov AK 47". Yes, we are well away of his naval background but its disconcerting nonetheless.

Jimty popped out to one of the three local Asian Carry-Out food shops nearby for his lunch. My own personal favourite is The Village , frankly I wouldn't go to any of the others on account of the Village being the best and some of the stuff that the others do is just plain unappetising. Anyway I digress, Jimty arrives back from the Clay Oven with a "lunchtime special" consisting of chiken, pakora and something else. The chicken looks as though its had a bite out of it! On closer inspection it HAS had a bite taken out of it! I mean for god's sake who would sell something like that? The Clay Oven obviously. We started to wonder if someone had taken a bite in the restaurant and left it and then its ended up in his lunch. If so, did they leave it because it was crap or what? On returning it, he got offered a replacement but opted for his money back and a trip across the road to the Village.

On another matter entirely, Banks, I fucking hate them!
