Not bad
a manager offered me an extra project that'll be a nice little earner until the end of the year. Just need someone else's stamp of approval, and I might be able to afford a hot meal this month.

my wife got a payrise yesterday too, backdated to Jan
looking for a little weekend getaway. Is there an english term for "agroturystyka", like a holiday home on a farm?

if there is, I don't know it
It's 'agriturismo' in Italian though

i could just google this but do any of you nerds know why we say 'souped up'?
what's the soup connection? soup's a funny word innit. why not 'soop'?

what's your favourite soup?

I always thought it was related to superchargers
which were fitted to engines yonks ago.

I'm not a huge fan of soups, but leek and potato is pretty good.

then it'd be suped up, right?

I googled it for you
apparently "soup" was a term for any concotion of drugs pumped into a horse to make it go faster, long before any sort of forced induction used in engines. So "soup" is the right spelling.

Ferme auberge in France

You're right, she's more like a butternut squash
But so is the rest of the family, so it's no big deal
