I just ate a salad to tide me over until Proper Dinner. That will consist of some of the little pork steaks I have to use by tomorrow or freeze. Also, sugar snap peas.

This week the BBC did “Have I Got News For You” Series 59 Episode 1 (S59E01) via video conferencing and it’s a bit weird. It feels like a group chat because basically that’s what it is.

SUMMARY: On the Prime Minister of Australia’s official website, they’ve badly ’shopped his family photo to replace his K-Swiss tennis shoes with Dunlop Volleys, and in the process given him two left feet.

Translation: If we start caring more about other people we (me and people like me) won’t have as much money.
