i'm eating guacamole, courtesy of my fair companion, and goddamn it's doing me good.

according to the super furry animals, guacamole is a cure for insomnia, which is not something i'm in a position to confirm or deny. wikipedia is no help, although it does provide an extended digression about peter mandelson, hartlepool and mushy peas, if that's your sort of thing.

listen to the song, at least.

sunday morning: jerk chicken, drum'n'bass

if any of GMS' readers are holding it down in the dirty south, may i recommend hudson's caribbean and good food restaurant, st mary's street, southampton? their jerk chicken runs the show.

i wonder if jason pierce had some?
