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!
