    This business of what it tea and dinner and so on needs clearing up, so pay attention you colonial chappies and read, note and inwardly digest the following.
    Breakfast: to be taken between 09:00 and 10:30. Should include kippers, poached haddock, kedgeree, toast and marmalade. Anything before 09:00 is unheard of so does not have a name.
    Elevenses: anything taken at Eleven o'clock.
    Lunch: Taken around noon and can last for several hours.
    Fourses: At 16:00 (four o'clock) Usually tea (as in a cup of tea) and cucumber sandwiches, cakes and biscuits.
    Tea: At 17:00. More substantial fourses. Can include a lightly boiled egg.
    Drinks: Usually at 18:00 when the sun is over the yardarm.
    Dinner: From 19:00 onwards; full blown multi course meal.
    Supper: After 23:00 - light snack before bed such as bread and cheese.

    Not today - but remember that when they did stuff themselves silly they had no central heating and it was much colder. And they died young.

    i think i'm cursed haha,

    At work i was just about to put the leftover pies in a bag for the guy who comes and collects them and the pie oven door exploded, i'm hell lucky it was safety glass otherwise it would have cut the **** out of me.

    rather odd i think, hmm, curse of exploding glass... :D

    I worked in the armoured/ laminated glass industry for around 5 years, making the stuff. (roughly x300 8ft by 6 ft sheets per day. ) Around once or twice a piece of glass that had been standing around on its own for several months, doing nothing would instantly shatter as soon as you layed a finger on it, even 10 mm thickness! I think it must be a tiny flaw in the glass, or the force was strong in me on those days :)
