Something surprised me today. On UK-Y (I don't know why I lurk there, but whatever), there was a thread started about the oddest lunch combinations a person can hear when they go to the cafeteria at work, or a restaurant around lunch time. The OP thought the combo of sausage, chips and beans w/ extra vinegar was odd. WTF? The OP spent loads of time in the UK before this point, so as someone who is not necessarily 'new' to the UK, how do they find that combo odd in the least? It's sausage, and chips, and baked beans (English, not American), what's weird about that? It's quite a nice go-to dinner if someone is lazy and can't be arsed, and generally chips and baked beans are paired up with *everything in the UK*.

Same with 'why is there curry sauce in chippies?'. Because it's a popular condiment to use with chips, and it is quite nice to order a huge batch of chips and curry sauce when you can't be arsed to eat meat. That would be like asking a mexican restaurant why they have salsa with their tortilla chips.

I will give the OP points on the tuna and sweetcorn combo when put on a jacket potato--that's a bit gross IMHO. I can't really picture tuna going anywhere near a baked potato (or any potato for that matter); with that said, baked beans over baked potatoes with cheese is lovely.

Now I'm really fucking hungry and all I have to eat is a sandwich. We can't have a take-away tonight though since we got the kids, plus we had savloy and chips on Wednesday when Steve got home at 6.30. Boo!

Damn, it's been 6 months since I moved over here--I should have a lot more to say besides that, but I might be able to come up with something more coherent later on. Loads of stuff has happened, but I still have loads of stuff still to go through.

Let's see what the next six months bring me then, wewt.
