Move!

I probably should have mentioned this earlier but I moved my blog. I don't have any real reasons other than me being tired of this one and needing a better address and programme.
So stop by, leave a comment, let me know what you think of the new design,...

I can now be found at http://oneofthepandies.blog.com/

NaNoWriMo 2010

Yups, I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year, I'm now officially crazy :p
For those who don't know what NaNoWriMo is, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and basically about 170,000 people all over the world are attempting to write a 50,000 (or more) word novel in a month.
Why? Because we can.
You can find my profile here, feel free to leave a message. As soon as I have a plot and I title I will post it there but for now, I'm just going with the flow...

Things I saw...

...on my way home from school today.

1. No less than 5 ambulances.
2. 4 guys each wearing a different part of a santa claus costume.
3. A guy brushing his teeth while riding a bike.
4. A kid dressed as a blue power ranger.
5. A dog carrying a bread bag that seemed to contain a bread, too.
6. A toddler staring at some dog poo on the sidewalk with huge fascination and it definitely wanted to pick it up. I wonder if it did...
7. BArbie's car.
8. A guy riding a bike wearing nothing but a dressing robe (this was very gross).
9. The white power ranger.

Byrd

This lovely old lady is Byrd, she is somehow related to the pigeon but nobody knows the exact relation. Despite her old age she has very good sight and hearing as well as a good memory. The only thing she sometimes forgets (on purpose maybe) is that she's married to Bryn.

Seven things you didn't know about me


Normally I don't do this kind of things but seeing as several people tagged me I figured I'd fill this in for once. The idea is simple. I just write down seven things you (hopefully) didn't know about me already. Simple, right?

1. I never wear gloves while cooking except for when I'm slicing or cleaning chicken filet. I absolutely hate the feeling of raw chicken filet and how it sticks to your hands so I avoid this by wearing a rubber glove. I don't have this problem with meat or fish, only with chicken.

2. My ideal job would be baker or chocolatier.

3. Secretly (okay not really) I'm a HUGE fan of the Studio 100 musicals; particularly the Piet Piraat ones. I own them all on DVD even though they're really meant for kids. They are however brilliant and hillarious. In fact, I'm going to watch one of them now ^^

4. My room is an absolute mess at the moment. My annual after-exam-cleaning is looooooooooooong overdue.

5. I'm more homesick for Australia now than I ever was for home when I was there (or anywhere else for that matter). Odd, isn't it..

6. I own around 40 pairs of earrings, not including the pairs of which I lost one. I also own a bunch of necklaces and pendants but I always wear the same one. My lovely boyfriend gave it to me and I feel weird without it.

7. My bike has a flat tyre. It has been flat for over two years. Yes I am ashamed of this..

So there you go, seven things you (hopefully) didn't know about me. I'm not going to tag anyone but feel free to do one of these yourself :)

Oh my...

It seems to have been ages since I last posted something.. I'v been quite busy so it's time for a speedy upodate.
First of all the cooking challenge. I did finish it but I forgot to post the recipes. Apart from that I've just been busy with school, exams and work. Regular classes start again in a week so things should hopefully go back to normal then :)

Week 32: Spice Cake

This is a variation to the classical 4/4 cake (quatre quarts). You start by taking four eggs and beating them an equal amount of sugar (roughly 50 grams per egg) and about a tablespoon of cinnamon, one tablespoon of ground cloves, one tablespoon of ground coriander seedsand one tablespoon of ground cardemom (pretty much the same as in Aachener Printen). Add the same amount of butter (again, about 50 grams per egg) and then mix in the same amount of self-raising flour.
pour the batter into a greaed and floured cake tin and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200ÂșC for 45-60 minutes depending on the type of cake tin you use.
