Buick comment of the week….
Husband: ‘The boot (trunk) on this car really is massive. You can see why the Mafia used them all the time. You could definitely fit two dead bodies in there easily.’
In my pursuit of admiration for the Buick, I found this post about them: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960407&slug=2322876 by Tony Kornheiser and there are two stand out lines for me that read:
‘I’ve bought me a new car. It is a Buick. Yes, I, like you, have always believed Buicks were only owned by someone’s fat, bald father. I still believe that. The thing is, now I’m someone’s fat, bald father.‘
‘So, I bought a Buick. I love it. The trunk alone could accommodate the entire machine-gunned Bonnano family.’
Now to find out more about the Bonnano family…..hang on, weren’t they the guys involved with Donnie Brasco…?
Oh no, don’t tell me this means I need to look up millions of images of Johnny Depp as Donnie Brasco and watch the movie again (hooray!)
Brit food galore
I don’t really miss any British food out here and have not actively sought it out.
But there I was meandering up the International cuisine aisle of one grocery store and there was a shelf full of [allegedly] British things!
Have a look at these! (I bought none of these ‘cos nothing tickled my fancy!)
Yorkshire pancakes with beans and pickled onions, alongside Jacobs crackers with Marmite on, followed by custard and lemon curd anyone? International cuisine….really?! 🙂
