Odds and Ends

  • I am very proud of my sister: she was recently accepted into a salsa dancing troupe.
  • I tried cooking pad thai tonight for the first time and learned quite a bit about tofu and noodles. I now aspire to owning a good non-stick flat-bottomed wok.
  • The Canary Wharf Waitrose is a strange and unintuitively organized store. My search for tofu gathered up three of the store's staff, all of whom also wished to know where it was kept.
  • All the teaspoons in the apartment have vanished into the ether. It is a mystery.
  • I am now a happy possessor of a copy of Conrad's Fate, the most recent Diana Wynne Jones novel.
  • Heard on Radio 2 moments ago: Mark Radcliffe is interviewing Simon Armitage, who, discussing accents and travel between the UK and the US, quoth: "There is an equivalent between Yorkshire and Iowa. We seem to get along fine." No wonder I felt at home in York.
