Now Playing: Intermittent birdsong,
after echoes of planes overhead,
scratching sounds of squirrels,
and the miniature heaves of

Topic: Empty Fridge Light

It's been a really gorgeous weekend, and I've spent it slumped in bed, slumped in the bath, or eating down my kitchen (ie, running out of food, so eating the dregs). I think a week of going out and partying was too severe a shock to my system - I rejected two invites last night, so I could lounge in my dirty flat in my underwear, eating marmite and cous cous.

Last day of my holidays. Still got a runny nose. So it goes.

Best Blo'te of the Day So Far: Stefangeens
"Perhaps I should just start a new genre where I do not actually write a blog but just describe imagined blog entries that I have not written. Noncommittal writing, I would call it, and I would engage in it in the more transient phases of my life, when nothing is really certain or cherished notions are in a state of flux, when writing down thoughts would give them more permanence than they deserve, like putting shacks up on the World Heritage List. And there is something wonderfully Calvinoesque or Borgesian to it all. Maybe I should just post reviews of my imagined rants, pronounce them the work of genius, but report back inexpertly and confused, and depend instead on the imagination of readers to construct something of proper greatness out of them."

Our grocery store carries Marmite. What exactly does it taste like and what is it really for? Just spreading on toast?

Yayyyyyyyy! I took that! Coffee cup in Crystal Palace, while drinking beer / caffeine with jatb, Krystal, and her partner.

I've been trying to stop stealing other people's pictures by steadily cutting down on the wholesale robbery. Of course I still enjoy bandwidth theft, but at least the
original photos were taken by me....

It's solid salt and caramel. If you're a Savoury, not a Sweet, you might find it the start of a horrible addiction. It's smooth, less grainy than Vegemite.

You either love it or you hate it, goes the advertising campaign. I hate it, but the cupboards were bare.
You could always pass it onto an expat Englischer if you loathe it? It costs about a dollar for a small pot here.

I don't know about the salt thing. Anymore it swells me up like a balloon but if it's only around $1, what the heck.
