Actually sent to me by somebody at work
Just wanted to make that clear. In case anyone wanted to cast aspersions on me for making fun of my host country. I like what happens when you hit the 'arse' link.

Oh and thanksgiving went well. I got to use the two most dangerous kitchen tools. The mandolin of death (to make potato gratin) and the blow torch to carmelise my lemon creme brulees. I was quite the bourgeous American and all the recipes (except the spicy pumpkin soup which comes from epicurious) came from one of my favorite over-priced kitchen shops. Though I shouldn't say that, I got a great set of nesting bowls there years ago and it is still one of the best things I have ever bought for the kitchen. And now that you can buy white peach juice in my new opened and exciting tescos (have I mentioned my weakness for their incredibly cheap cashmere jumpers?), this year's holiday cocktail is the bellini.

Just like the state of nature, nasty, brutish and short...I was always fond of the nickname 'Craxi'...Sometimes I cook, sometimes I tend bar, sometimes I even knit. Mostly I try not to read the plethora of government publications that cross my desk and write one page summaries.

favorite show: CSI
favorite drink: grey goose vodka (with ice, it doesn't need anything else)
age: far older than I like to admit/contemplate
