I saw someone wearing a "Nonce Sense" T-shirt in town today. This made me very happy.

I didn't make any for Easter. What I did make for my girlfriend & I on Good Friday was:
Leek and Roquefort tart (with home made Parmesan shortcrust pastry).
Italian seafood stew with home-made cheese & olive bread.
Amaretto zabaglione with Anzac biscuits and raspberries (zabaglione is a liqueur-flavoured whipped egg custard, which - you guessed it - was home-made).

It's about the most ambitious menu I've ever tried to cook and it all came out really well, so it was awesome. I was especially pleased with the bread, it's the first time I've tried making bread. Now that I know how easy it is and how nicely it can come out, I'm going to do it again. Oh, and appropriately enough for Easter, I used 16 eggs making all of it.

Less awesome is that I used pretty much every pot, pan and utensil that I own and I'm still trying to catch up on the washing up. Still, it was worth it.

The rain has stopped, the sun has come out and it's actually warm! yay! Goodbye internet, I'm off to frolic in the spring sunshine. Well, more accurately to chainsaw apart a tree that somebody hasn't been felled properly and is now precariously balanced between other trees and jack the lumps off the hillside. Difficult, hard work and it's going to be dangerous as well- people have died doing this job. Still, hey ho, at least I get to be outside :)

Today it was really sunny and warm and I spent half the day riding around in my car smoking and excersizing the vocal chords to Newton Faulkner and the other half helping my current best friend/ex paint her room. It's been pretty cool and relaxing. Awesome, even.

rage. While you buggers are enjoying the sunshine, I'm stuck inside revising. Stupid GCSE's. Whose idea was it to have 23 exams in a four week period?

EDIT: I'd better put in something awesome... I was predicted all A*'s recently? That's put my mind at ease a bit, I spose.

It's awesome when, after a couple days of . . . dubious productivity, your boss stops by your desk at 4:30 and you have actual work in progress spread out if front of you and no internet windows open at all. (Well, I would have been doing stuff all week if I had realized that there was this stuff to be done, but that's not the point.)

Awesome: I've realized I've been majorly repressing certain opinions and personality traits for the sake of not making waves but I finally went 'fook that shit'. I've 'come out', so to speak, and it feels great. I'm switching major and have been told by the advisor that I'll get in as long as I pass all my classes this semester, so it's essentially the least stressful finals ever. Also today was really sunny and I went to the park to walk around barefoot in the grass and read in the sunlight and it was awesome.

My supervisor is pretty awesome, too, and that does make it a lot easier, even when things go wrong (as mine did). Good luck!
