The Ugly sisters,
Girls, your more recent attempts to rejoin another place are highly amusing and futile. Why are you not satisfied with this forum?
What is it that you think is lacking here, that causes you to constantly try to return, to somewhere where you are so obviously unwelcome?
I find this site very informative. Why is it that you do not?
BTW, I got a gold star.

I expected it all to be perfect
I'm hoping that it's something I can still get right
Adey and I are chatting and fingers crossed it work out
I was probably really naive
I expected a perfect match to curries, which obviously he's never tried
If I do get it, you will all know

Hi Haldi did you get it ?

I can't work out a way to get Adey a sample
I'll probably drive and see him sometime

He's opening a new restaurant, you know

I really wish I could believe that a self-taught Briton could master (and teach) everything there is to know about BIR cookery.  Sadly I cannot.

I believe he has proper BIR chefs working for him Phil - or at least I seem to remember that being inferred at some point on here.

Never seen on in any of his videos, Santa.  And I would be more impressed if I knew that he had worked for a real BIR chef than vice versa ...

Off-topic introspection.  Why is it that whenever I re-read one of my posts before posting, I find it necessary to add one or more "that"s that did not come naturally when I first wrote the message.  In the above, I found it necessary to add the 'that' after "If I knew".  I added three 'at's to a single sentence recently, yet all looked and read right in the end.

Do you use the word "got"? Ever?

It has got to be the most unnecessary word that there is.

I have no problem with got, only gotten, which generally makes the speaker sound retarded.

Come on guys let's remember this is not a English grammar forum, not all of us had such a privileged upbringing with good education !

I'm here to cook curry not to read how u think uneducated people are retarded!!

In speech, yes; in writing. no.  I removed one from one of my wife's papers yesterday (she is a non-native speaker), reminding her of the guidance I was given as a child and have never forgotten :  "Treat 'lot' and 'got' as if they were red hot".  "Gotten" is good Scots, but exists in Southern British English only in frozen phrases such as "ill-gotten gains".  Hey, a thought :  if the Scots gain their independence on Thursday, I could re-cast the preceding as "... in British English", omitting the "Southern" and saving a whole word  :)

Right, back to Adey Payne, chaps :  enough of this off-topic stuff !
