I’m No Chef…

Cooking Instructions…but I seem to understand basic kitchen terminology better than Sainsbury’s. If you cook the vegetables in oil in a frying pan, that’s frying, not boiling. Clue’s in the name, you see.

I’m 30 today. I don’t have anything really coherent or sensible to say about that.

Congress Time

Filed under: Salsa — ealing @ 12:53 pm

The UK Salsa Congress starts on Friday, and the workshop schedules have just been posted (in PDF format – boo!). Is it me, or are the workshops running shorter than last year? Also, the Brit SalsaFest has just opened for bookings.

Salsa UK’s survival guide is not very helpful, so I’ll have to start making lists. Fortunately I remembered to get some new tapes for the video camera already. Since I’m off work for a few days as well, I think I might book myself in for a massage on the Tuesday after.

A K750i deserved better than this.

Some stuff caught fire. I dialled 999. Strategic extinguishment solution providers arrived to do their job. News at ten.
