"Is that how they do these? I thought they were prepared more centrally and just shipped out and served."

Unless something radical's changed in the few weeks since I unfriended Facebook, they should start by making an app for existing smartphones that doesn't suck balls. Just my 2p.

Re: Greene King IPA?

Agreed. The beer's pish and their policy of buying decent breweries and turning their beer to pish is, well, pish as well.

Generation gap

The generation gap is an interesting one. Most people I tend to text use proper English - punctuation even. But after my niece taught my mum to text, so it took many years of moaning before she finally stopped using Teenage Gibberish (aka txtSpkLOL or whatever it's called).

A happy side effect is that having to use Proper English she sends me fewer texts.
