DID YOU know – when referring to mortar and pestle, the pestle is the stick and the mortar is the bowl? It’s not such an interesting fact, really. But we discussed it this evening, and I found out, and this is the answer. Just so you know.
I made curry paste, this evening. In a mortar and pestle. That’s how it came about. It was good, but not great. I’ll report when I create something worth sharing. Have a photo, though.
So, also, I got an award.
You want to hear something sad? It’s my first ever award! Woooooo. I get such a buzz every time people link to my blog (all, what, 5 times now?), or comment, or want to read it… why would you? It’s really very exciting for me. Simple thrills. Anyway, I got my award, all because I copped-out and didn’t want to write a post. It was a little bit because, y’know, posting every day is hard, but it was also a general comment on life, which is a bit of a challenge, in all. Yeah, bla bla, people don’t want to know the personal stuff, right? Blogging’s actually really hard for me. Sitting and writing something on a computer. I can’t really explain it. I don’t even know what I’m trying to say. I’ll go with, thanks, Big Cat. This means more to me than you probably realise. Cheers.
In other small excitements, someone favorited my first photo on Flickr. And I didn’t even take it! It was the one of the cat with the balloon. It is an awfully good photo, I agree. Anyway, this dude has an awesome favorites collection, mostly of great cat photos. So you might like to take a look.
p.s. – for some reason, I can’t link to non-flickr pictures. So I have gone back and edited last post with the new book I gots. Any hints for me? Why won’t they show up??
