i know in the UK pickle is different from what we'd call pickle in the US. But isn't it just pickle relish?

Possibly? Generally if someone makes a cheese and pickle sandwich they mean Branston Pickle which is apparently ‘made from a variety of diced vegetables,including swedecarrotsonionscauliflower and gherkins pickled in a sauce made from vinegartomatoapple anddates with spices such as mustardcoriandergarliccinnamonpepperclovesnutmeg and cayenne pepper with sugar.’  It can also be served as a relish with salad as part of a Ploughman’s Lunch though. 

do you like just the musical/film les miserables or have you read the book too? if yes than what's your opinion on all the things they changed?

I have read half of the book! They had ‘part 1’ of an unabridged version at my local library when I was about 16 so I read that, but part II had been taken out and never returned so I just never got round to reading the rest. This was in the days when you couldn’t just find all these 19th century books online.

My main memory of it was being surprised by how Cosette was very much the heroine of the novel (or so it seemed to younger me) whereas in the musical Eponine is the figure the audience tend to be sympathetic to (in contrast to her strikingly less sympathetic and attractive portrayal in the novel) and Cosette just sings and looks angelic and marries Marius.  I also remember a VERY LONG section about the Battle of Waterloo. SO VERY LONG. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. Possibly longer than the actual Napoleonic campaigns.  I’m glad they cut that out of the musical.

Nick is jealous of Fearne :D

I want to see a reality tv show where straight dudes have to read the shitty messages they send to women to their mothers.

Annie Mac texts in to say hello from Ibiza and Nick reminds us that he is the voice of British youth culture by revealing he’s learned how to burn music onto a USB stick.

Like a modern day Ren McCormack, there’s nothing and no-one can keep Finchy from that dancing beat.

It’s time for Nick’s top ten - and this week it’s sandwiches for some reason (cheese and pickle forever)

Everyone is excited about Douglas B coming in - except Fiona who’s just spotted Sam Clafin.

I’m certain the Vulcans were like “We get that you’re half human, so you can keep ONE emotional/human response and you can use it as much as you like.”

And Spock was like “Sass.”

People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL
