Random stuff that I like and a few ways to waste time.
Stephen Fry blogs about language.
Cath at The Canberra Cook keeps posting recipes which I read and think “Must cook that” (but because I’m incredibly lazy when it comes to cooking I have yet to try any of them). Her Christmas Cake sounds fabulous, I should have started it several weeks ago….
I’m not sure just how much of the periodic table I’d have been able to fill in back in the days of university chemistry lectures but I do know that the number of elements I can recall off the top of my head now is depressingly small. Though I’m sure doing it while sitting in front of the Roman Mysteries on DVD isn’t helping (the kids are pretending not to be interested while sitting with eyes glued to the screen).
My score on the geography quiz is slowly improving, I only occasionally end up on the wrong continent now.
What fun/interesting stuff have you come across lately?
