Important dick update…

Once you have absorbed the notion of Aunty’s dick, I’d like you to contemplate the delights of steamed puds in general. Yesss.

Thanks to McCain for joining the Choir Eternal (no, really…I’d sincerely like to thank John McCain for doing that), we will be starting up a new Dead Pool tomorrow.

This brings me to the fact that I am really super embarrassingly behind on my dick fulfillment. If you have waited a very long time for a dick from me, I can only say…you are one of the things I think of when I’m trying to fall asleep and cringe myself back to consciousness.

In fact, because some people have (quite sensibly) opted not to send me a mailing address, I don’t really have any idea exactly how far behind I am. If Rich Rostrom is reading this — he keeps a much more accurate dick list than I do. Could I trouble you for the latest, sir? I can post the list and we can work out the State of the Dicks.

Oh, and don’t forget to join us here. Tomorrow. Six WBT for Dead Pool Round 114!!!

p.s. “pud” is short for “pudding” — Brits use it more or less generically for any dessert, not just what we’d call a pudding.

It’s amazing the completely awful names they give to their desserts.

Spotted Dick, Drowned Baby, Dead Man’s leg, Fat Rascals, Treacle and Treacle Tart. And the Irish Dingle Pies.
We shall not have Dingle Pies in the house because – she didn’t want to know what a dingle was.

Drowned Baby is pretty good, and we haven’t gotten around to trying the spotted Dick. I say “we”, I mean me.

Still 🙂

Amazing, the things you learn reading Stoaty’s blog. I mean, I grew up reading British mystery authors like Doyle and Christie and Anthony Berkeley, and I don’t recall running across the term “pud” (as short for “pudding”) anywhere. Though it may be a much newer coinage, or was considered lower-class in Dame Agatha’s day and Not To Be Spoken in Polite Society.

Between you, me, and the rest of the Internet, I can see why.

My son was military, and spent four years in the U.K. He came home asking for “pud” or “afters.” He also wanted me to make some sort of creamy sauce to spoon over desserts, and to bake a small loaf of fresh bread every day. Dear Boy—I love him so much, but asking for dessert after every meal was over the top 🙂 Oh—and lemon curd! We compromised on cakes, biscuits, and corn bread. Mainly because I grew up in a family that made biscuits or corn bread almost every day, and a layer cake would last two days, even if he ate four pieces a day—which he did because of mid-afternoon snacks.

Other foodly British terms that sound odd over here…

bubble and squeak
joint (in lieu of “roast”)
bangers, bangers & mash
pasty (rhymes with “nasty”)

Now I’m hungry, so I think I’ll go stuff myself!
(works both ways, innit?)

Yer six years late on one of mine and I’m now 2500 miles from where ya left me. I stopped worrying about it…oh, six years ago. Though I wouldn’t mind having me some fancy elephant shit paper….

After the first one, it’s not the dick, it’s the thrill of the chase.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
