I will be wearing my Frost* beanie, holding a glass of red wine and just let myself go! :wink:
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...

And I'm even further afield!

And I'm only about 10 mins drive from the Tunnocks factory, so those any of the band willing to make a hand delivery, muchos Rioja will be supplied, along with paid tour of the Tunnocks factory & samples! :lol:
We are seemingly constantly reminded about the eternal Jaffa cake debate, biscuit or cake. However, few of us realised that another biscuit debate on the same vexed issue had been conducted over that favourite party treat and source of yummy marshmallow, the Teacake. Within the biscuit industry there was the sense that there was unfinished business here, and as is being widely reported in the Times today it could end up costing the HM Revenue & Customs 3.5m.
From 1973 to 1995 the Teacake which has a biscuit base was accepted to be a biscuit and being covered in chocolate was liable to VAT at the full rate. This is the converse of the Jaffa Cake which as a cake gets away with zero rating. However, in 1994 Marks & Spencer successfully got the Teacake reclassified as a cake, and thereby made a claim for all the excess tax they had paid over the last 21 years. A small proportion of that sum was paid out some three years later.
Now Marks & Spencer may be closer to retrieving the rest as one EU rule clashes with another, according to Juliane Kokott, Advocate-General of the European Court of Justice. The case will need to go to theEuropean Court of Justice before a decision is made.
What seems apparent to us is that if we can lay our hands on any vintage M&S till receipts for teacakes from 1973-1995 then we should be able to claim back our overpaid tax too. No doubt the likes of Tunnocks, Lees, Burtons and anybody else who has a teacake factory will be very interested in the outcome expected early next year.

Damn, damn, DAMN!
After years of pressure from H, I've just shredded all my till receipts up until 1998 - she reckoned that keeping them for more than 10 years was "unnecessary hoarding"!
Maybe I can claim from her for loss of potential refund. That'd teach her.

My local cd-store expects the album to arrive on friday. I hope they're right, since I didn't pre-order!

In which case my identity has *long* gone! :D

I think you are pretty safe if you pay via a credit card, as you have some protection with those.

Oh yeah, believe me, I know.  Unfortunately, the err....beast upstairs believes otherwise.

Honestly, I don't know when it's going to come in the mail so I can't really make any plans...

Aah who the hell am I kidding. I'm going to drop everything that I'm doing, get drunk and BLAST THAT SHIT!  :twisted:

I like your style!

I'm going to drive back and forth to the Post Office or just sit and stare at the box until it gets there. Then pop that bad boy into my stereo and pig out on some biscuits while I'm listening so I can the full effect of the album.

Since it is a Monday release that means most of the time it is already available in the shops on Friday / Saturday.... So, I have instructed the local specialist record store to immediately call me / text me when the new Frost is delivered to his store. I will then most probably have to resist the urge to jump in my car and pick up... but I am considering the idea of taking the afternoon of so I will be able to pick it up in the afternoon, hang out @ the recordstore, play EIMA and maybe even watch some of the dvd before going home at the end of the afternoon. Afterdinner I will most surely then be playing it on my big soundsystem and crank the hell out of it....  :lol:  :twisted:  :lol:  :twisted:

AAARRRRGGGGHHHH... The distribution / wholesale company didn't deliver it to the record shop yesterday and I have checked the packinglist for todays shipment and it is even not in the package for today.... CRAP !!!... This means I have to wait till Wednesday...

I think I mentioned this on the old forum.

Monday 17th is National "Stick The Kettle On Day". No, really.

The soundtrack should be awesome. :D  :D  :D
It's not the winning or even taking part. It's the arsing about that counts.
