I can't believe people buy grated cheese (The rise of lazy food). By the time you buy it it's all clumped together again anyway. And why do people buy ice cubes? Jeez, don't start me off... I'd better go and lie down in a darkened room.

People buy ice cubes because they're having a party, I find. You can fill a bucket with them to keep drinks cold (if the weather is ever warm).

They do pre-diced onion? It's not because I'm lazy, just that I'd rather not cry my eyes out whilst cooking a curry.

Rob asks if football fans fit the most-wanted criteria - high IQs and creativity - for sperm donors (Tuesday letters). I'm an orthopaedic surgeon, I have an interest in architecture and landscape photography, *plus* I'm a football fan...

Chris (Tuesday letters), DJs talking over the beginning and end of a record dates back to when "home taping was killing music". You will never be able to record a whole track without the DJ on it. A bit pointless now with digital media and P2P networking. I think it's just habit now.

If Chris wants talk-free DJ-ing, s/he should listen to Whispering Bob on Radio 2 on Saturday nights. Announces a tune, says why he likes it and then stays quiet until it ends. You may not like his choices, but you can't dispute his style.

Dear, dear, Lester Mac (Tuesday letters). You may have thought yourself clever to include erroneous facts in your first missive, but you were, I suspect, merely a pawn in Magazine Monitor's grand scheme. The Monitor would have known all along what was going to happen; how do you think such an unremarkable first letter about averages came to be published? It would serve you well not to confuse the puppet with the puppetmaster.
Liz you're quite right (Tuesday letters). But you must admit that "muliebrity" is the ugliest Latin-derived word one could ever meet. Or is there a worse one? I'll get my amiculum.

Now that we've established that muliebrity is not the same thing as femininity (Tuesday letters), could someone please explain the difference? I would hate to cause offence by remarking on someone's femininity if they were actually being muliebritous, or even vice versa.
