The Eggwan Ad Hoc Festival of Curry

How does the 4th October sound for a meeting of minds and forks at my house for the Ad Hoc Festival of Curry?

Proposal is to each bring a dish (or two) for entry into Best Main Dish and Best Side Dish categories.

Dishes will be set out, tasted and scored by your fellow Eggwanners. Winner takes all (and is exempt from the washing up!)

Obviously you'll need to make enough to let everyone have a decent taste (casserole dish size maybe?)

Marks available for Presentation, Taste and Originality.

Stokes, I consider chips to be a Side Dish and chicken nuggets do not constitute a Main Dish.

So, bring food and beers that night. If people could confirm if they are coming though I would be grateful.

Oh and the thrid thing; lets just amke the new website live - running two is a bad idea. If it breaks/doesn't work we'll unleash the code monkey.

Anyone deeply opposed to the idea speak up, otherwise as I have expressed an opinion I win.

Cheers, EW!

Project: Fat Man Fast Car

(Reposted from old site as Scott can't be arsed to do so)

Project: Fat Man Fast Car is officially postponed. Having had briefing from the Bank of England this morning (yes, really) things aren't looking particularly shiney for someone just about to joing a small, construction related company. I will wait. Am gutted. Also, the absolute wankers at the Nissan garage didn't help with my enthusiasm. If someone was buying two cars from me, I probably would have made more of an effort to return phone calls. Useless Cunts, consider yourself on my List of People Who Will Never Be Used Again.

Tempting, very tempting!

A Yank V8 and the Ford Capri, together at last! Shame they had to keep the auto box really. At least it's had a rear disc conversion so you don't need to carry and anchor and chain!!      Or maybe the Sierra XR8 brought over from South Africa. An interesting proposition!  

The time my Calibra was towed

The time my Calibra was towed - I used to have a Vauxhall Calibra. One day I replaced it with a Vauxhall Omega (I’m not married to Vauxhall or anything, it just made sense for various long-winded reasons). On that day, I parked the Calibra at a little parking spot near my house, wrote to the DVLA, and declared it SORN. In other words I told the DVLA it was off-road and would not be paying road tax on it.



Egos, bodies and an inability to cash cheques

Now this is news for anyone who likes mirrored aviator style sunglasses, the 1980s and music by Harold Faltermeyer.

The Inaugural Eggwan dot Com Ad Hoc Festival of . . . .Curry!

I am hereby proposing a Festival of Curry, likely to be held towards the end of September and likely to be held at Chez Egg.

The evening will consist of a show case of all of your finest curry cooking skills, to pimp your tasty dish of spicy-ness to your mates.

Well Done Matt

Well as Matt hasn't put anything up I will..

Well done Badger on getting a 2:1 in your degree, well deserved I reckon.

There is a job at CPW waiting for you..

Ah! The freedoms of youth...

Obviously this guy is clearly a little older than most of us, but there is a definite resonance to his tale.

Pass those rose tinted specs mate....
