I don't know if I'm explaining this clearly, but there are times when you make connections in your head between two otherwise separate things. For example, last year I spent loads of Sunday evenings ordering a Dominos and binge watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. Now whenever I order a Dominos, the smell of it reminds me of Star Trek. The problem is that other people may not realize this and wonder why you suddenly started talking about Star Trek when we were ordering a pizza.

This happened again recently. I was in Boston last year and for some reason I noticed loads of Asian-American people there (a quick Google tells me Boston is about 10% of Asian decent). So, I had this conversation with a colleague today:

Her: I'm thinking of booking a holiday to Japan next year.
Me: Oh yeah, I've been to Boston.
Her: ???

If it’s the “low fat” one you have a few days “grace” past the “best before” date. Sure it’s mostly water anyway.

Locked myself out of the house doing the dog's bedtime walk just now. My sister is dead to the world and answering neither phone nor door. Can't exactly call into the neighbours at this hour. Wtf do I do??? Genuinely wondering if turning the wheelie bin on its side and crawling in for the night is an option...

Holiday.

Looking at PlayStation 5 news and it's release date is Holiday 2020.

Not Christmas, not December, but Holiday.

I get that people say happy holidays (small h), as a PC, inoffensive phrase, but I've never seen Holiday as a drop in replacement to Christmas.

Christmas is a thing. It's a specific time period same as New Year's or Easter that exists regardless of your beliefs or whatever.

Why have they changed the name???

Making a toasted sandwich and pressing it down to stop the contents falling out. Now my hands are soggy and have crumbs on them.
