Yet Another New Job.

Interior. Day. Office building of Evil Multi-National Media Corporation.

Me:..so yeah if you just cut the sprouts in half and fry them face-down without boiling the flavour is totally different.

New Blonde Colleague: Actually that sounds really good. I might try that. Maybe with a bit of garlic. And I'd probably use single cream...

New Blonde Colleague is no substitute for the original Blonde Colleague who has tiresomely decided to give birth and is no longer available for my amusement but she has become an immediate and close friend which is a bit odd for me.

Me: Sounds good. If I were to make it again I'd add some mushrooms...

NBC: Ooh yeah...

Me: Use pancetta though...

New Blonde Colleague is rake thin and eats like a horse and adores food, as do I. Also listening is New Thug Colleague, who is a skinhead, over-weight, plays bass in a punk band and is a massive Newcastle United fan. He has been surrounded by a predominately female working environment for some time and has been struggling with it.

New Thug Colleague: You know what Tired?

Me: Mmm?

NTC: When I heard you were joining us I couldn't wait to have another bloke here.

Me: Ok.

NTC: I hope we get one some day.

Me: Bite me.

It seems to be going well.

I use Olive Oil, bit of garlic and some chopped up bits of bacon.

Sorry is this not a cookery advisory blog?

Excellent. Office banter is the best form of workplace psychotherapy.

I like sprouts for breakfast, mashed up, with cold potato, and fried--a sort of bubble and squeak.

You didn't mention a splash of balsamic vinegar, but that's also a v nice, no-fuss addition. (Not with the single cream version, though, yug.)

Congrats on the new job. God bless Evil Multi-National Media Corporation and all who sail in her.

I suspect that the rotund Geordie is correct.

You're getting a bit soft and non-cynical.

Furtheron: Apparently not, although I do the same.

Anon: Smoke me.

Loob: Indeed. And shall now be doing the same. With a poached egg on top.

Jen: Aw thanks.

TSB: Perhaps. Perhaps.
