So I was at Meredith's house tonight catching up on silly television shows for teenagers and chatting about all and sundry. She has recently been tested for food allergies and turns out to be allergic to all sorts of things- so she cleaned out her cupboards of offending foods and gave them to me in a Tescos bag. Which promptly broke as I was walking home. In the middle of the street. With cars heading towards me from both sides. So I froze in the middle of the street and fortunately all the cars stopped and one even asked if I was alright as I gathered up what I could save from the broken bag and strewn groceries. I got most of it, but left a bit of a trail of tea bags and broken boxes. The rest was jumbled haphazardly in my arms which was fine until the sweet chili sauce slipped through and landed on my toe where it proceeded to shatter and splat chili sauce all over the pavement and my flip flop.

The rest of the walk home was uneventful, I managed not to drop anything else and was not hit by any cars or bikes or lorries. Phew. That being said, I'm such a litterer.

I think they can revoke your US citizenship for using 'all and sundry' in a sentence. Leftover legislation from the Bush era. But I won't report you.

and yet again, gawel knows more english than I do... what does "all and sundry" mean anyway?

sundry means miscellaneous- so "everything and the odds and ends," kinda.
