Just about to pack up the laptop and go and make a cup of tea and then to bed with Lord Peter Wimsey, the thinking woman's literary *crumpet.


Night-night, all.

*Crumpet - a British slang word for a sexy person (usually a girl but in this case.....)

I'm sipping red wine and dreaming of warmer weather. Getting a bit tired of these single-digits around here. I'm also enjoying my nightly glass of wine just a little more after reading this article: A New Study Suggests That People Who Don't Drink Alcohol Are More Likely To Die Young

Oh great, you've just ruined my next eating experience when I toast up one of those lovely British griddle cakes for breakfast.

Brings new meaning to the expression, "Tea and Crumpets"!

Like the so-called "French paradox" which says that the French, as a nation, consume a lot of butter and cream, meat, fat, etc., etc., but have relatively low cholesterol and heat disease because they drink red wine.

Works for me.

Interesting that eggs and now butter seem to have been rehabilitated after being considered another less than poison. I'm tempted to wonder when it will be sugar's turn.

I've been dinking around on the iPad and basically doing nothing. Must bring the turkey from the outside cooler and find space for it in the freezer, as it's up to 29įF now. No easy feat.

Rob mixed a bunch of Oscar's cat treats together and apparently these don't set well on his stomach. It had been a week or so since I went into the basement guest room and the carpet looked like someone had performed a feline exorcism...

So I got out the carpet cleaner and took care of that. I figured since I had the contraption out, I'd also do the main floor, so I just finished that. There is quite a bit of satisfaction seeing your carpets look like new, but it's quite a project!

Himself said you might have better luck if you cook it up now. Turkey dinner at Dawg's house!
