I'm still hanging in there, Bonny.

Time passing? That's another four days - ridiculous!

It could be age that makes it go faster, but I think it's more likely to be a growing concern with time that makes it seem to go faster as you get older. When you're young, you want to be older, so you can be more free and you feel like you'll live forever and don't care much about time. Then you get older and become more concerned about the fact that you won't live forever and time just seems to go faster the more you care about it.

Being occupied makes it go faster as well - time flies when you're productively occupied with something interesting. Now - I'd rather be productively occupied with something interesting than not - so there's a catch 22 for you. It is what it is.

That's great. I think the dictionary is the best book in the world, kind of the REAL bible.

That's totally right.

Ha, by the time I get there it'll be completely gone. Well, I guess I'll have to content myself with some pastries I bought this afternoon. :D

I could give you the recipe:

Chocolate Pound Cake:

Takes:
6 eggs, split
150 g butter
125 g sugar
125 g self-raising flour (or flour and baking powder)
150 g pure chocolate

Oven set to 160 deg C
Buttered form
Mixer
Pans with water to melt the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate au-bain-marie and take it off the fire to let it cool a bit.
Mix the butter and sugar to a mass, then add the 6 egg-yolks and the chocolate.

In another bowl, beat the egg-whites stiff.
Sieve the flour.
Mix the flour and egg-whites in with the chocolate mix, beat until it's properly mixed, then put it in the form and smooth it out.
Put the cake in the oven for 60-65 mins. Then let it cool in the form for 10 minutes before taking it out and munching it all.

That might take me a while, I've got the 150 gallons of butter, now I have to wait until I can afford the 150 gallons of sugar.

It's been a while since Punky posted that, but I actually got to go there today:



It's really frightening to cycle over that - the barriers are cycle-steer high, so it'd be easy to tip over.

Nobody wondered about the squeak? Bonny was talking about all those dictionaries and I was demonstrating that although my main language is English and I can speak a little French, I can also speak mouse.
