Drinking ‘Mate’ chatting to Mates and listening to Radio4 on my Mac

2 Mar
A night of 3M’s – familiar yet far away – had great Skype chats and Facebook and Twitter catch ups as I spent the night in after a long day. After a long walk home and a long queue at the market, I decided to stay in.

So I cooked. Penne Arrabiata – if you are bothered about that sort of thing – and then some mente yerba in the house ‘mate’ gourd. Still not sure about it as it is very odd tasting. A bit like fabreez or toilet duck sucked up through a wooden straw that has been left soggy by an overnight dousing in pot pourri that someone has put a cigarette out into then stopped it from smouldering by peeing on it…

The jury is still out, but I can see them coming back down the corridor as I type…and the foreman does not look happy…

Still Radio 4 on iplayer is great and the air is now cool, and have caught up with the news, views and gossip.

    Chatted to Tim Crouch in Tokyo, Jane Southworth in Miami, Tim Arthur in London and Pato Montalbetti in Buenos Aires. The kind of stuff we used to think was never going to be possible as a kid, but we hoped would come true. And it did. I think I am living in an old episode of Tomorrow’s World as a wide eyed child with an iphone…

    Haha. I was looking forward to the mate – you may just have ruined that anticipation somewhat!
