I've just been in B&Q.

I've no idea as to why, but I really like the smell of that place.

In fact, I'm still sitting in their car park so I think I'll pop back in for another ming at it.

(Also to buy a specialist bulb, the price of which I previously balked at.)

Can't say I've noticed a particular pong in B&Q but I can remember back to old hardware shops that as soon as you went into them there was a distinctive smell to them, maybe parrafin or paint or a mix of the two. I can recall going into Gray's on George Street, loved the smell of that place.

Fire lighters. I just love the smell of them and really have to stop myself biting into them.

Being scared, I sometimes worry myself at the sort of thing I do to get my fear kick.

Gray's always smelt of stale pish and talcum powder.

Apparently you carefully unfold the tucked in foil wraps, gently press/massage the cube until it breaks up (it now resembles a foil pillow), then you tear a corner and pour out!?!
Allegedly that's how they were designed!

There's a kind of daylight that you get especially in Scotland, where you have a bank of dark, black rain cloud right up beside sunshine. It creates daylight beneath it that is just different but gorgeous, you can spot it straight away. The best examples I've ever seen were in the Trossachs, I think it shows better on hilly ground.

In fact it's not unusual for me to get up at 2 or 3am on a Saturday in the summer, go a walk in the hills or up a mountain and be back in the house in time for a family brunch.

Not for me my friend. I was lucky enough to have lived in the same house as my grandmother when I was growing up. She was Greek but absolutely fluent in the food of what I considered at the time to be European. Latterly I realised lots of it was North African, but it was good all the same.

To be fair, the toilets in about 90% of them are pretty rank.

That's not really the bit that I like.


Many years ago my mate used to work in the Burger King in Stirling services. If you popped in he'd make you "creations" that weren't on the menu with all the different burgers, buns, sauces etc. I stayed in Dundee at the time (I knew him from Uni - he went home every weekend to work) and it was a good stop-off in the car when I was driving to Hibs games in Glasgow.

Sneezing.

Not just any old sneeze, although they are enjoyable in their own right, I refer to sneezes which threaten not to materialise.

There's a real joy when, after tactically looking up at the sun or up a strong light, you succeed in violently blowing forth, as it were.

I suppose that's not all that unusual.

Maybe missing a sneeze would qualify as a pet peeve instead, but I'll leave it here.

I half fill the Tomato soup can with milk and add it to the soup. Plenty ground black pepper with grated parmesan cheese (the real stuff) not the rubbish you get in the ambient aisle in the supermarkets. Fanbloodytastic!

This is called a ' pizza bianca ' ie a white pizza and can be delicious. Sometimes I think that the cheese can mask the other flavours.

No mate pizza Bianca or white pizza is without tomato sauce not cheese. Unless you are talking in Rome where it is basically plain dough sprinkled with coarse salt.

I booked a flight/villa/car package holiday for 7 people with Thomson/TUI 2 years ago. I knew I'd be getting 2 economy cars for our party so phoned up more than once to either upgrade the vehicles or change the rental to a large people carrier. Offshore call centres being what they are, I didn't get anywhere so reluctantly resigned myself to the fact that I'd have to chance it once we landed.
We ended up getting 2 Fiat 500's with no other alternatives.
It was a hell of a challenge getting 7 passengers with associated luggage in but we somehow managed it.
The cars themselves were alright, I wouldn't rush out to buy one myself, I think the chassis was made out of plastic!

Are red puddings a Fife thing?

My Dad is a Fifer and he always wanted a red pudding supper from the chip shop. He always used to send me in for them, and I've had to have a few conversations with brusque chippy workers where they are not on offer.


Predominately, yes.

Just had roasted pumpkin seeds and they were amazing .
One batch roasted with castor sugar and cinnamon which tasted like honey roast peanuts.
The other batch was roasted with paprika and spices.

I was really surprised at how tasty they were.

Love tripe, never had it without milk.
My nana used to add some carnation milk, lovely.

Coming on to Hibs.net and checking the Dug-out a few times a day specifically to read about strangers and their pet peeves, and the things they like, haven't tried, or only tried once. That can't be normal. :confused:

Potted heid is a very acquired taste. I buy it occasionally and am reminded it is a very very acquired taste.

Like brawn, it should be eaten with a pickled gherkin to enhance the visceral taste.

Mustard. I have several jars with murky-looking contents. People bring me them back from holiday. I like French ones best but I'm "keen" on all types.
Wee mustard-based quip there.
