    So the kid's bicycle arrives from Lazada.




    What the fooker's failed to mention




    was that you then need to go and buy half the Black & Decker back catalog just to put the fookin' thing together.

    Fuck that.
    Send it back.

    Nothing wrong with real shopping in real shops.

    Shopping online - never know what you're gonna get, almost always the case.
    A passing fancy.

    Fortunately MM is smarter than me, and after I wrote the shopping list for the local hardware store she said a bicycle shop will put it together for 200 baht.

    At this time of year I think it's nice to spare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves.

    A time of plenty for some... but how about those unlucky enough to live in impoverished countries.

    Norway must be one of the most gastronomically impoverished countries on the planet. Before I left last month I snapped a few Norwegian Christmas delicacies.

    Pinnakjot (pronounced penushoot). Salty, dried mutton bones - traditional to bake and eat hot on Christmas Day.



    Fenalaar. Dried and salted mutton leg. The same idea as a nice palma ham, but with that unmistakable taste of rancid sheep fat. Not cheap either at about 160 quid a leg.



    And last but not least, Lutefisk.

    Who wants freshly fried cod and chips when you can soak the cod in cold water for a few days. Once saturated, soak the cod in a sodium hydroxide solution for a couple more days to get a lovely jelly-like consistency, then to make it edible (because it is now caustic with a pH of 11-12) soak it in cold water for another few days. Yum...

    Uff Da!

    That's why you need to get to know the locals they all hunt and fish and eat it fresh. I am part Norwegian and as a boy I spent two summers in Norway. The spreads they put on where pretty epic from what I remember.

    Living in Seattle the Norwegian side of my family migrated here for the fishing. If you have ever watched that show "The Deadliest Catch" that's what my family did for a living. I grew up eating more Alaskan salmon, king crab and halibut that you could ever imagine.

    Well I actually never stopped eating it.

    They year is 1998, I'm seated in one of Gothenburgs better seafood restaurant and it is quite late in the evening.
    The door opens an in comes a guy with wife and children in tow and it is evident from their dresses (sport jackets and pixie) where they come from - it is Ole Norman with family that has just entered the restaurant.
    The family waits inside the door while Ole takes a few steps forward, looks around, and then with a loud voice asks: Har dere pizza? (do you serve pizza?)

    So you've still got 9 days of urban guerrilla warfare to go.


    Hopefully Dill will have calmed down by then and won't be eyeing up me legs like Keano on Alfie Haaland.

    Great shot of the Strangeways tower in the background.

    I was gonna say that their Christmas won't be up to much, but at least they didn't get to see United today. Small mercies and all that.
