Languages can be tricky things. I'm French, living in the UK with Andrea who is German. The first phrase she said to me yesterday while I was barely awake had three words, each of which was in a different language: "Maybe heisst peut-etre"!

This ljtalk thing is very shiny, but what if I don't have a Jabber client handy? Well, meebo.com comes to the rescue. It's a Jabber client on a web page. Shiny!

Ginger beer [Apr. 28th, 2006|04:04 pm]

I made some ginger beer a few days ago, mostly according to this recipe. I didn't realise how much lemon is in ginger beer. Okay, so this just a crude approximation to ginger beer - it doesn't undergo full fermentation - but the resulting mixture is nice and cloudy and tasty and when I open the bottle it makes a nice fresh pssssscccchh sound. Easily worth a few minutes worth of your time!

Tokyo is the future! The future has little dangly things attached to your mobile phone. Also, tall buildings. And cherry blossom.

Buns buns buns [Jan. 15th, 2006|08:10 pm]

No, you're right, I haven't posted here in a while. Anyway, today I had some leftover beef and so I made some cha sui buns. I made the dough (this took a long time. pesky dough. i was hungry!), I made the filling (with beef mince instead, and honey and soy and other things I had) then put some egg glaze on top and baked it for 20 minutes. It was leftovers. It was also the tastiest thing I've had in a long time. I've left one for breakfast tomorrow. Mmmmmmmmmm.

One fire truck, one ambulance, three police cars and a night in a hospital waiting for a friend to recover from too much alcohol. Kids, don't do this at home.

Six Apart [Jul. 31st, 2005|12:22 pm]

This week I've been in San Francisco. I made sure to pass by the Six Apart office to say hi to the gang. What I don't understand is how Six Apart can function with a bright pink sofa in the office...

Pasta [Jul. 13th, 2005|07:32 pm]

[Current Mood |gigglygiggly]

Hello again. I'm making pasta, the flour has gone everywhere.

I took the tube on Sunday. Normally the announcements go along the lines of "delays because of signal blah blah blah", not "delays because of Thursday's terrorist activity". Then I cycled to Old Street, and I had to make two detours at Edgeware Road and Travistock Place because of police lines. I hadn't thought about it that much. London is very much continuing on, though.

I've also decided at the last minute to go to OSCON in Portland in a few weeks. I put in a last minute proposal with many many many buzzwords and somehow it got accepted. So I'll be there to talk to the Perl Posse, and will bring lots of orange tshirts. In fact, I'll be in San Francisco for a week before and a week after, too. I might do touristy things, geek out a little, eat some wonderful food, have an interview and drink silly cocktails.

As for the pasta, I followed a recipe very much like this one. It's dead simple, but just takes a while (all this resting, then drying, you see). You need decent flour, but that's about it. Mamma mia!
