Universe delivery

Thanks Chris915 for the delivery of the most awesome Dutch liquorice. Sometimes the universe delivers in a totally blatant way. While I'm talking about the Dutch shop (again) let me point you at the cheese (again). It is only barely more expensive that ordinary stuff, and they cut if for you and wrap it in dinky paper, and while you're there you can grab some of the inexplicably delicious cheese crackers (inexplicable until you find you're bilingual, and can read Dutch, and see that the crackers are 23% butter and 16% cheese).

And while we're on this food rave, why not go around to Davis Trading. They've got an amazing range of Turkish olives and grilled sundried tomatoes in olive oil and tapenades, and they're all about $3. $3!! In the freezers there they have some great stuffed roti things. Ooooooh. Inexpicably delicious also (until you realise you're trilingual and can read Indonesian and see they have a high percentage of palm oil).

But since I've seen Juno, and been reminded of Tic Tacs, none of this matter, since Tic Tacs are a little known antidote for gluttony.
