Well, I'm not feeling particulaly eloquent or funny tonight, so I thought I'd throw some photos at you guys until I can do a proper blog.
So for Movember (fundraising event for men's health, for those not in the mo know), on Sunday morning I helped Flatemate cook biscuits to take in for morning tea. He's not very adept at cooking (yet), and was also more than a trifle hungover under the weather, which meant that I pretty much did all the mixture-making and the cleaning, and four trays' worth of biscuit-shaping, leaving him to do two trays. The cleaning was the thing that really shitted me off; I was doing him a favour donating 6 hours plus of my time to bake these things for his morning tea, and he kept saying "I'll do the cleaning up in a bit", and when midnight came around and it still wasn't done I cracked it, and had to at least put away the perishables, wipe down the benches and rinse stuff so that we didn't get ants. And then when the end of the next night came along and the dishes still weren't done, I cracked it again and did all the washing up. Alone. Ragh! I love him as a person, but sometimes he's a selfish git of a housemate.
Anyway, despite me making up the ingredients, having to hand-cream the butter and sugar and not sieving the flour, etc. (I am yet to purchase a sieve), the biscuits turned out beautifully, so that night I once again helped him decorate the biscuits. We iced them with chocolate icing, then used chocolate sprinkles as the bristles, they looked pretty groovy, although Housemate admitted his looked like a small (hungover) child had done them, haha! Very occasionally I'd put a tiny sprinkle of coconut on one to give them a salt-and-pepper appearance, which was funny.
This weekend has been pretty average. Last week's bad news has set me back a bit, time to put the denial cloak back on (it's a bit like an invisibility cloak but more commonly found). Still, I've got the Spicks and Specks (funny Australian music game show) gig to look forward to tomorrow night, which is freaking awesome. And I'm taking along two of my closest girlfriends, S and M (hehe! S&M), so that will no doubt be a lot of fun and frivolity. Plus, I get to sit up the front and close to Adam, Myf and Alan! Can't go wrong!
