Because I'm bored and no one is replying to my emails.
this week is going to be rubbish, but unless people flake out i'm going to have a wonderful weekend so...bov.
my boyfriend's away and my sister isn't allowed to send personal emails any more, so I'm also bored.
Pretty excited about pancakes tonight - going to make savoury ones with mushrooms, ricotta and asparagus, or maybe bacon, potato, emmenthal and apple. Mmm.
Are you dining with Jamie, per chance?
got to make yourself fancy pancakes on pancake day, even if you're cooking for one!
I have toyed with making myself pancakes.
A. I am on a diet
B. I am too lazy :D
Plan for the day:
- finish another draft of this report
- eat pancakes
- watch the end of the Brit awards
If I was in charge of programming ITV2, tonight I would schedule a repeat of the Brit awards from one of the 'classic' years (maybe 1997). I don't know why this hasn't occurred to them already.
Just to see if it can really be as bad as people say.
still feeling terrible. It ain't getting better.
I need a hug.
It will do. And I know it's really fucking annoying when people say that. But it's a fact. I deal in facts.
it's just all very blurgh.
I'm just going to end up getting far too drunk for the next three weekends, spending too much money and doing stuff I regret, for sure.
I hope not.
I'm having savoury sourdough pancakes for main and then normal for dessert.
It's okay. Embrace it.
And tell me about your pancakes. ¬
You mean with sugar and lemon, yeah?
(I'm not in this thread!)
It's not Sunday morning breakfast day.
You can go now.
Maple syrup flavoured, with sugared pecans and a caramel swirl.
EVER. (I know it's February)
It's called Black Vanilla.
I'm going in a crypt beneath a lovely church later on, then going to my induction for the history festival.
One of the rats is running around the room with my bank card, can't catch the idiot.
I saw one of these the other day.
I wish that blog was still going :(
My housemate is the best cook in the world and she makes this ham and cheese stuff to go inside them and they are frickin awesome. Found loads of good jobs to apply for today and my outlook is fair to good for the week.
anyone who puts veg on a pancake is a fucking wrongun.
padded cells for them, please.
if its a savoury pancake surely thats fair game?
you'll be saying you have jam on crumpets next.
just butter for me thanks
it's the best.
(I will let you know about Saturday).
You're all bastards.
Where is my luggage?
I love my puppy and miss her :(
Um, jobhunting with vigour this week as I'm through with my current bunch of arseholes.
Some other stuff. Pancakes!
compared to 31 kg of CO2 for travelling by train.
Didn't have time to get it back this am.
Also, you have no idea what else I do in my life to offset my travel choices, ya judgmental prick.

Does your significant other like them?
shakes and several protein and anti-depressant pills whilst deciding whether I have autism or not.
My god I hate most of you.
Most. Round about way of saying you don't hate me.
You too, jacques. You too.
i feel like i've travelled in time or something.
Kiera Knightley was raised. Great stuff.
Going for pancakes later. Need something to give up for Lent- any ideas?
*Crowd waits with baited breath*
There are 3 of us.
Probably working really late, then going home and working a bit more. Cheers.
*People having jokey/passionate arguments about what you should put on pancakes
*People who put anything but sugar and lemon juice on their pancakes
I can't be sure.
I agree with * number two, though.
It just always happens on Pancake Day and it drives me up the wall. *Ooh I'm having asparagus pancakes for dinner*. No you're not, fuck off.
Safety wink to nice_squirrel :/
She seems quite nice to me.
I'm having beans on toast if that helps.
I'll probs have pasta and pesto instead.
Might invite the fitty whos bambarding me with inane IM messages too. I've been given a pedometer for some work thing as the environment people saw me walking to and from work. Why didnt the fuckers pick me up?! What a bunch of cunts.
Really considering it like
The feeling at the end is totally worth it, but it's tough going. Do it!
Just to get like info pamphlets etc
and making them. I used to make a questionairre for Father Christmas to go with his mince pie. I also used to type of questionairre's for my parents to fill in when we were on holiday, they were quite lengthy too, about 20 pages, the final page was always an essay question. This is on a typewrite too so I had to type the same thing out twice.
Would you like me to make you a form?
got excited talking about forms
Also, couple more questions;
1/ Do you still have the typewriter? if so where do you personally buy the ink-tapes from?
2/ Have you ever considered doing questionairre's for a living?
3/ Where are you right at this moment and are your legs crossed?
4/ I am considreing opening a play called "Mr That", does this sound like a good titel for the genre?
1/ No, it was an electric typewriter but lat year I bought a lovely blue manual one that I then had to sell, pah. Ribbons were on eBay though
2/ As part of my last job I had to write them for focus groups from time to time. It was great.
3/ I'm on my bed and my legs are outstretched BUT crossed at the ankles
4/ I like that name, I don't know what kind of genre you're going for but I say go for it.
1/ What kind of price were you paying for these eBay (?) ribbons?
2/ What is a focus group, some sort of club?
3/ This is a comfy position to be in?
4/ It is an Action genre play, like Spiderman on Ice?
1/ I have no idea. I only ever looked them up but didn't have to buy one before I got rid of the typewriter.
2/ when a group of people get paid to be asked questions about stuff in the interest of corporate research
3/ Very, I'm struggling to imagine moving out of it
4/ Hmm, yes then this name is good but only if you use action packed font, like comic book style 'KAPOW! WALLOP!' type stuff. I look forward to see Mr That in action.
I'm going to make pancakes on a GF griddle as our hobs are broken. i've made scotch pancakes on it before and it worked really well, but i'm not sure about normal pancakes
they turn out fucking amazing.
savoury; chicken and mushroom (best of two poor choices)
sweet; black cherry jam and black cherries with a sprikle of sugar
Will found out tomorrow or Thursday.
Big issue anyone..? my last big issue sir/ma'am
While listening to Peaking Lights. I need to go to buy some food soon, but I only have 5 pounds left. Think I may have to be very stoic about this.

The comments make it seem real, so i am 50/50
and maker pajeon. the only type of pancake i give a shit about. mm.
