Army Cooks are the Best

#1
Well that's what the financial head of the Mem Sahib's organisation thinks anyway. Therefore she's asked me if I know any ex-ACC slop jockeys who might be interested in a temporary position to cover illness with the strong possibility of a permanent job.
The job involves catering for cookhouse numbers on a daily basis as well as event catering on an ad hoc basis so the chance to practice the whole range of culinary skills as part of a team.
The first mention of this was only late yesterday afternoon so I don't have a full job description yet but anyone with suitable quals can pm me and I'll get you the full SP.

PS: The downside - Job's based in Hull - part war zone; part sexual Disneyland.

Ee by gum, lad. I'm intrigued by Hull being a 'sexual Disneyland' ...would you care to expound this theory Sir? Are we talking mice with long eyelashes? Dwarves? Randy deer?

Good luck on the job hunt. Sounds an alright gig in fact for a willing recipient.

There was a report on Look North this morning saying the number of sex workers in Hull had decreased by 50% in the last year. It's hard to be a professional in a City of so many willing amateurs.

By 'decreased' do you mean smashed over the dead with hammer, dis-robed, humped til blue then dumped in the Humber?
And by 'willing amateurs' do you mean that Beverley has a thriving swinging scene and accepts dirty visitors from town?
Dont do riddles man, I did many hours of exercise y'day and havent even had a coffee today yet.

ps I hate the name 'Look North' as a news show, stinks of London-centralisation, as if you did look north from Yorkshire you'd see Scotland and its not a programme about fucking Scotland is it?? Gahhh.
.......and breathe.

It may be a coincedence but the Welsh for hideous is Hyll. :)

Your wife's organisation should think about appointing a scrap yard to collect and dispose of the empty tins. Should be worth a few pennies.

And warn off Westlers that they'll need to increase production of their "Sausages in Lard".

Had my coffee now. Did I just slight your local TV news show? My mistake. It is very good really. Besides Look North from Hull and you see the North York moors...many happy hours racing around local villages at 0300hrs in a Bedford.
Look North from Hull and all you see is the Wolds but they are a sight worth seeing. I don't really watch LN but the Mem Sahib has it on in the morning. I'm feeling quite copacetic this morning and life is too short to get that worked up!

The one cookhouse run by Army Slops in Afghanistan(Near the Hosp in Bastion) is the worst in theatre by a country mile-The contract run cookhouses are far far better.
Army slops have had there day- The fat gobby fu**ers have been replaced by Skilled Sri Lankans who dont specialise in "one choice only"

World Wide Words: Copacetic ... 'Copacetic', meaning something is in excellent order or satisfactory, is an obscure American expression co·pa·cet·ic/ˌkōpəˈsetik/
Adjective: In excellent order.

Eee I had to look that up.
So we still want to know about the sexual shenanigans in Hull. It could be a clincher for the prospective chef lurking and reading this post.
When a quite famous warship was given 5 days free seatime the captain asked if they would like to go to the Med and call in at Gib or Cyprus. The company unanimously voted for Hull because they had a saying If you can't score in Hull you're already dead.

Not saying 'ull is and will always remain a shithole, but it is disowned by Yorkshire for a reason!

Its not all bad. Beer is cheap I think. Or used to be. Its University campus won an award for architecture. If I recall it's because the buildings are 'hidden' behind (Viking burial?) mounds of grassed earth. Except that one problem, we went in, this was 15 yrs ago now, as we knew some lasses there. Very hard to decide which path to take when you can't see any buildings at night! A few signs would have been useful at the time. I'm saying that they also got lost even tho they lived there. (Maybe there are some signs now. We considered leaving trail of breadcrumbs.)
You weren't on the main campus then, you were at the Halls of Residence in Cottingham. The Viking burial mounds are known as Telly Tubby Hills and yes, there are nice black and white signs now to show you at which of the seven halls you are!
