    I'll forgive you because you drink Bollinger, though.

    People who claim it is their favourite champagne and call it Verve get no such forgiveness.

    Queensland traffic legislation

    i found out when i saw a sign saying 'cooked prawns' in a seafood shop and i asked him what a cooked prawn looked like and he showed me a normal one. then i asked to see a raw one. Mind. Blown.

    i also didnt realise they were straight. i thought red and curly was how they got around under water. Its the fact the heads/tails.are still attached that threw me.

    You could keep it out of the fridge in a French butter dish. The water makes an airtight seal. Wish I could find one in Australia!
