Meme

Ever since CW tagged me for this meme, I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think of a suitable actress to play me in a movie based on my life. Finally, I came up with Keiko Agena. I don’t know much about her – I only remembered her vaguely from Gilmore Girls, which I never […]

The Cubes

How cool are these? I just discovered them tonight. I’ll add them to my list of “really cool items that I probably will never get around to actually buying”. If I had some of these I would set them up on my desk and play with them all day! Here is the official product site, […]

Friday Night Footy+ curry

Oh my god, what a butt-clenching finish! Yay, Eagles! Final score: West Coast Eagles 10.9. (69) Sydney Swans 10.5. (65) Match report from the official AFL site. Edit: Friday night footy with a big bowl of curry and rice – just perfect. Jac used chicken thighs, lots of onion, string beans, carrots and zucchini (courgette). […]

Soft, rubbery, crispy, spongey…delicious

I’ve written about this before – how I love the contrasting textures and tastes of a McDonald’s Big Breakfast… the soft, bland scrambled eggs; the spicy, rubbery sausage (perfect accompaniment to bland eggs!); the ultra-crispy, salty hash brown; the spongey (with crispy edges) english muffin, with sticky strawberry jam. And …

Lunch, 29/08/2005

Combination rice, AU$6.50: char siu (barbecue pork), hainan chicken and steamed choy sam on hainan chicken rice. I drizzled extra soy sauce over the chicken. This came with a bowl of hot clear chicken broth too. The chicken was boneless breast; I would’ve preferred dark meat on the bone, which has more flavour and is […]

Review – The Shamrock

We went to the Midland Military Markets this afternoon, after visiting a mate who lives out that way. I had only eaten a small sausage roll for lunch (which was really lovely, but just not big enough), so I was starving and hoped to grab a bite to eat at the Markets. We needed to […]
