I finally realised this at a birthday party this weekend, where the unwritten theme was "fairies". All the beautiful women had fairy wings on. Nobody had the same wings. Some had feathers. Some shimmered. Some were small. Some were large. And their owners had not bought them for the occassion: it's just something they had lying around. I don't have any fairy wings. Do you?
At the Japanese cookery course on Sat we made some cooked watercress with ground sesame seeds and a sort of teriyaki chicken with a lovely mirin, sake and soy sauce. It was tasty.
This weekend I have mostly been carrying heavy objects for my sister, who's moved into a new flat. It constantly suprises me how much stuff you actually have. It's all over now, but that 90-kilo fish statue was a killer.
I presented a test run of my Inside Parrot talk at the London.pm tech meet last week, which went fairly well. The plan for the talk was to give people a good grasp of Parrot assembler, but it turns out that people are more interested in the reasons behind Parrot. I think I've convinced a couple of people to hack on Parrot, so that's good at least.
Hmmm, I should probably remember to actually have lunch at lunchtime...
