Yesterday night my Polish colleague walked me to the underground station and I've noticed something funny. He didn't do diagonals! Every time we were crossing the street, he walked to the end of the pavement, took a sharp turn and then the opposite such turn at the other side of the road. I just cut corners. I noticed that he was growing morose and asked him what was wrong when we got to the station. He answered (in Polish): "You walk like a suicidal cow." :-D
I didn’t really know that was a thing:

I'm not like a cow! I walk like a queen! Any direction and distance in a straight or diagonal line :-) He's a rook - or maybe a crow because he walks as the crow flies. I can never tell those two birds apart.

Somehow, "as the cow flies" has not really caught on as an idiom. But, to quote the Steve Martin version of inspector Clouseau, "you, sir, are the idiom!"

Of course, he also said "A woman is like an artichoke, you have to work hard to get to her heart."

You should take him across the diagonal road crossing at Oxford Circus.

Officially sanctioned diagonals! OMG! circuit overload!!

As the cow flies, baby
Will I ain't so far from you
As the cow flies, baby
Will I ain't so far from you
But since I don't have wings
I can't get home as fast as I want to

My fluffies: Camembert and Bleu (Gorgonzola-style as you can tell from the holes)

No idea why I spontaneously started making them heart-shaped (probably because I love making them!), but in the next batch I will make several small cheeses in shapes of cats!
