You're back! How was the trip through the desert (you survived, always a good thing!)? Do you have travel pics to share?

Did you like, write that? 'Cause I wrote my joke. Hey, maybe you and I should take our bikes on the road. No one seems to want to risk being part of my comedy tour: Infinite Monkey, Infinite Madness! You're a risk taker.

Oh, and welcome back. ;)

Just found what looks like a really good recipe for Chicken Dhansak (except for the addition of Mr Huda's Curry Paste, which I will not be buying especially - the curry paste I have will suffice.)
And tomorrow is payday.
They go together as I'll have to buy 500g chicken, but even separately they work as Good Times.

Will make on Saturday when the 'rents are at Mass.
Ha ha, will come home to delicious chickeny smell and there won't be none for them!
Like last week when they came home with a spur-of-the-moment KFC and there weren't none for me!

No, I'm not that petty ;)
Dads doesn't like well spiced dishes and Mum hates lentils, so I'd only be cooking for myself anyway. I'll be storing/ freezing any leftovers and they will be more than welcome to eat them of course. Still, I might warn Mum that there will be a curried breeze on Saturday evening, just so she makes sure to have something nice in to counteract it.

Hiya folks!

There will be pictures in the Sun/blotted thread, eventually. Gawd, the mess I have to sort and clean and stow. FAWET part 2.

Infi, those two puns were sourced from the theme song of a gardening radio show on local ABC radio in Canberra about a decade ago. But, like, I reused them in a an original way. :blush:

the inch is 9 today.

9 is a good age. You're still a kid, but you can do stuff and you have confidence.

Exactly. This morning he had his cuddly acting as second in command to his small army of toy soldiers.

Happy birthday to the inch!

Happy Birthday, inch! Happy day to all.

Getting "Closer" to 10! HB Inch! I hope his cuddly "Nails" the war strategy!

Once he hits 12 he'll be an official foot.

Tried to make an origami box at BOSC the other night.
Okay I was made it out of ICT scrap paper tray rather than card, but it was very trying.
All under the questioning eyes and brain and non-stop questioning of William. Who I have a lot of time for, but yes he is trouble and I worry about what will happen to him in future.

Anyway, it was from an American website and the measurements were in inches. Turns out we have no rulers in the school which show inches any more. So I did it the old-fashioned way. Online with a translation calculator ;)

I made a hash of it anyway.
And in fact the sheet has to have so many folds to set up the shape that even the expert version in the photo looked a little like it had been sat on - just with crisper corners and a top that actually closes.

Oops, I dropped mine on the floor and accidentally stood on it. William, in full knowledge of how deliberate my action really was, laughed like a drain.

Anyway, the last part made me happy.
The first bit was exposition.

Writing out my grocery list for tomorrow.
That does make me happy. Def making the dhansak. Not buying ghee for it either. But am still expecting Nom.

HB inch.

glatt 11-30-2012 03:33 PM

My drawing came today! It looks way better in person than the excellent picture kerosene sent me.

Now for the perfect frame...
