I had my day all planned. It was going to be a repeat of last weekend. I was going to go into town, get some bits for my computer (another game controller, though also a USB hub this time), brunch in Burger King, and go to the supermarket on my way back.
Sadly, when I got to town, it was shut. Well, that's possibly not completely accurate. They've blocked off a vital part of the one way system. I'm not sure how much, because I couldn't get anywhere. I attempted to get to the car park another way, but I've only been driving in this town since I was 17, so I've still not learned my way around yet.
It's going to be closed for weeks. There's some lame excuse about them doing vital work on a gas main. Why do they never learn? They keep insisting on putting gas and water mains underneath roads. Why can't they put them somewhere more convenient? Such as above ground?
I didn't have any change which meant I couldn't park in one of the many "Pay and Display" places, and so I gave up and went to the supermarket. Now in a state of near starvation, having been daydreaming about burgers for the previous couple of hours.
Consequently, I ended up with a whole load of nice food. Brunch is nachos with "Monterray Jack" cheese, salsa dip and sour cream, washed down with orange juice and lemonade. I don't know if these nachos are very genuine - they look like Doritos to me. And the salsa isn't spicy enough, and as usual with fancily-named American cheeses, the Monterray Jack is very bland.
But it makes a nice change, and the whole thing only took a minute in the microwave (when it comes to cooking Bee is my role model).
Have a good weekend!
