Comfort food


Hi, everyone!

I’ll provide you with some distractions, if you want them. First: Michael Fassbender is going to play Thomas Rongen in Next Goal Wins, and Thomas Rongen is a pretty lucky guy.

Ramble of the Day

So this second distraction isn’t so much a distraction, but I could describe it as channeling our energies into something else briefly, if we’d like to. I know many of us are down in the dumps after yesterday’s Carabao Cup result, so I’ll go ahead and ask a question: If you were looking for some comfort food to console you in this time, what would you pick?

I’m writing this well after dinner, so I’m opting for a dessert. I’m thinking about a dark chocolate brownie that I plan on baking in a couple weeks’ time, and hoping the brownie I make eventually lives up to my imagination. It’s too bad I don’t have anything around to replicate that experience right now; I’d really like something gooey, rich in flavor, and a little bit soft — like a brownie.

I think I have some ice cream, but it’s not the same. I may muster up the desire to have some. I’d say stay tuned, but I really don’t think I’ll be writing this ramble by the time that’s settled.

tl;dr: If you need a distraction, feel free to share what comfort food you’d like to get you through the rough patch Tottenham’s going through!
