weekend & thinks  

We had a family barbeque on Saturday, which was lovely. (BBQ for, not of, the family, for the pedantic among you.) Ted even made baked beans, which om nom nom. :)

I failed a third time to make decent ice cream, which is really pissing me off. I pride myself on my ability to make dessert, but custards are apparently not my strong suit. I have been given a non-custard recipe that Fred and Bryant swear by, so I guess I’ll have to try that. *sigh*

Yesterday I went to a museum and got a massage, which is not a bad way to spend an afternoon. :) Then we watched the second episode of Jericho, after which I slept poorly (probably due to 11 hours of sleep the night before) and had somewhat disturbing dreams. It’s possible children of the ’80s shouldn’t watch television shows about thermonuclear wars shortly before bedtime.

Ted set up the new (rather large) computer desk, looked at it, and said to me, “Well, you’ll be able to sew on THAT.” And he’s right, and now I want to sew something. In my copious free time.

Oh, I should put in my plug for voting on the Last Days project. I’m afraid that Swan River Press is now kicking my ass, and I fear for my chances of ever catching up. :)

- post office
- migraleve
- unpack & set up desktop computer
- call citybin
- call landlord about leak
- call airtricity
- laundry
- vacuum
- empty rubbish

There are other things, but since that’s more than I’m likely to get done today anyway, I’ll leave it at that.

Voted. Again :-)
And what the hell is migraleve. And does it make migraines leave, because if so, pass it over here, will ya?

That is, yes, more or less what it does. I dont think I can pass it over there, because it's got codeine and thus isn't an OTC thing in America.

On the other hand, I have Tylonol with codeine and it doesn't do a thing for me. Ah, well.

Ice Cream
I heartily second Fred and Bryant's endorsement of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. Mmmm, salted caramel.

I voted again, even if I don't get ice cream out of it.

Re: Ice Cream
Yes, I've heard people wax eloquent about her ice creams, so I guess I have to try it. I said, feeling dubious about cream cheese in ice cream.

Also, if you're coming over for LonCon/Eurocon next year, I'll make you ice cream. Assuming I've gotten the hang of it by then...

Re: Ice Cream
LonCon is Worldcon London? I'm not going, but I suspect Bryant and S will.

Re: Ice Cream
LonCon is Worldcon London, yeah, and woe! I thought you might be going. :)
