This is not microblogging

It's probably counted as nanoblogging. 

This crab has nothing to do with anything, 
but at least I own the image.

But just a note that while trying to think of names for my currently-in-my-head crafty business, I consulted the trusty Internet Anagram Server. The following suggestions (from different originating phrases) are, in my opinion, absolute gold:
  • DAMN WEEDY
  • A DRY NEWT
  • SWANKY MEED*
  • NICE TEST SWIM
*I had to look up the definition of meed, and it's another wonderful thing (or perhaps I should go to bed seeing as it's past midnight).
meed  (md)
n.
1. A fitting recompense.
2. Archaic A merited gift or wage. (Source: http://www.thefreedictionary.com)

Birthday brulee

This is the first time I've made a creme brulee and my conclusion is that vanilla seeds are really tiny and oddly satisfying to remove from the pod.
Also, it's good to check that the blowtorch has gas in it before getting to the final step. Thank goodness for convection ovens!


Anyway, happy birthday Kevin! It's an honour to be married to you, even though you're kind of an oldie mouldy now.
