In Other News – 12 July 2016

2 min read


I’m pretty miserable right now. I’ve got a bit of a cold that’s made its way down to my chest, and it’s making me cough like I’ve been smoking off-brand cigarettes all day. Somebody kindly suggested I have a bowl of soup – but if I wanted to drink something I’d have another cup of coffee. Instead, tonight my mind wanders to a pub favourite. Dammit, I want me some bangers and mash.

There’s something magical about a rustic and grainy (but delightfully buttery, perhaps garlic-infused) mashed potato, with two plump grilled pork bangers and some pan fried onions that makes me salivate enough to forget that I’m sick. A good bangers and mash doesn’t need anything other than the sausages and the mash, really; anything else is just gravy.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
