    You've only ever lived in London? Seriously?

    I LOVE Mock the Week and 8 Simple Rules, that's TOP TV.

    And I'm with you on Sashimi, I mean, when fire was discovered, all these things should have been dumped in the backwaters of human history !!

    Seriously! I'm a proper Londoner, me! And, great minds ;) I giggle all the way through MTW!

    Ooh I would love to be a food critic. I think I would have to specify the restaurants I wanted to review though so I got to eat only good food.

    Good tv show choice!

    Hi Tabitha. Being a food critic would be so much fun :) You get paid to eat and tell people about it afterwards - bliss. The only thing is, I'm a bit of a lightweight, so having wine with dinner might cause some lapse in concentration..

    Maybe you could just get a tick sheet for eat course? Y'know good, bad, made me want to vomit, that kind of thing? ;)

    That's a brilliant idea - you should sell it to all the papers, you'd be rich! ;)

    You've traveled to some interesting places! What did you like about Dubai? I did my 'Four Things' on YM's comment section and can't believe I left out THE INCREDIBLES! A fun film with some great lines (one of my favs: "No capes!"). Still haven't found a source for curried crab + coconut.

    I loved that it was different, and the cultural differences surprised and awed me. I went on a scary life-flashed-before-my-eyes 4x4 in the desert and loved it. I also went sand boarding, on a desert hike and the Wild water wadi, which was so much fun! I could have done without being woken up at 4/5am every morning by the prayer calls though!

    *Tuts* how could you have forgotten the incredibles..??!! :)

    I haven't had a good curried crab in the UK - but there's a v. authentic Thai restaurant in Hong Kong which does it soooo perfectly. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! You should come with me next time I go ;)

    I like 8 simiple rules too but it only plays at weird times here so I never get to watch it.
    Wow you have traveled to some very interesting places chika...sounds like you had a great time too!!
    The next place you need to travel to is CANADA so you can come visit us :o)

    I don't like the crabs they sell here, they aren't fleshy like Alaskan king crab or succulent like snow crab.

    Of course I used to like the crab here when it was all I knew!

    Has anyone ever had blue crab? When you cook them they go pink and the shell is very splintery but the meat is so sweet and tender.


    I LOVED the Incredibles! My poor Dad took me and his arm must have been black and blue, I nudged and poked him so much with enjoyment!

    Oh yes Owen Wilson is so adorable!

    I've done this tag a million times, in fact probably emailed it to you a while back, so I beg off. I found a different one on Moody Minstrel's that I might attempt soon.

    YM, I'd love to come visit! I'd get to cuddle the girls for real! Must start saving... :)

    Livvy, I have no idea how to differentiate between one type of crab and the next, they all look the same to me! I dare say I have had blue crab though. I always manage to cut my fingers on the shell whilst eating crab!

    The Incredibles are incredible, I can't wait for the sequel(s)! I loved Monsters Inc too - did you? Hehe, I'm such a big kid!
  12. Youngmum 8:16 pm, October 26, 2006
    YAY!!! Please come... *runs up stairs to start clearing a room*

    Cut your fingers? Then I think you did have blue crab :) We used to buy them live at the Vietnamese shops in Dallas.

    YES I enjoyed Monsters Inc. The little girlie! They really did have to run around behind a 3 yr old recording her voice!

    I really like the expression in Mike's one eyeball.

Something to say?
