I feel that it’s been far too long since I posted a blog with words in, not least words that require thought processes, so I thought I’d sit down and have a nice little chat with all you computer-people.
How is lent coming, I hear you ask… To be honest, I’m a bit crap at it. I keep forgetting! In Berlin I hadn’t eaten a meal all day, so when we got to the hotel and someone offered me an Oreo I practically inhaled it. I also devoured a couple of Jaffa Cakes (sorry Rhiannon) but I don’t think they count as biscuits. I ate a chocolate biscuity caramel thing on Saturday… it was a Twix, basically, but not by Twix, so I just ate it without thinking.
In other news, I made marmalade yesterday. Well, I say ‘I’ and ‘made’ using the terms loosely. Mum helped and we aren’t sure if it set or not, but I’d had enough of the pan overflowing every five minutes after an hour, so we decanted it. Except the amount of liquid seemed to have grown instead of evaporated away, so we ran out of jars pretty quick. I can’t post a photograph because my camera’s batteries went in Berlin and I can’t find the spare ones. So imagine this, times about twelve, in various containers:
A few of you may have seen the new Planetary (GO!) video which came out yesterday. If you haven’t:
A lot of people have been saying they’re disappointed by the lack of cinema, story, etc. This is stupid. My Chem are a band and last time I checked, bands play music. So enjoy the lights and dance! Speaking as someone who was at the Hammersmith Apollo when this song was debuted, the reaction to which was what made them release it as a single, the energy has been captured perfectly.
While we’re on the subject of My Chem, MCRmy.com has been relaunched! Yay! Let’s all go play Killjoys and Draculoids with our masks on!
Talking of relaunching… Is it just me, or does this look rather like the Indifferent Ignorance font? Just saying.
Happy World Water Day.

Okay, so this blog just answered my question about your giving up biscuits.
And your marmalade looks far more convincing than both the jam and relish we tried making last year. The former got frozen (how? it was the middle of summer!) so we had to eat it as a sorbet, and the latter was so utterly unpalatable that there are still three jars of it sitting in the back of the fridge.
That isn’t mine, and we had to reboil it to make it set…
Everyone who’s eaten it has said it’s nice, though.
Yeah, I did totally read all of the post and not just skim read it. Ahem.
Well, that’s promising then. Unless they were just saying it to be polite.
your saying yum now, but in a years time, methinks you’ll be fed up of marmalade 🙂
hows the lent business going by the way?
It’s better, actually. I have refused the many biscuits living in the cupboard…
And, hell yes.
yes, the font does look a bit similar. Hope your marmalade turned out okay too, but i hate marmalade, so don’t ask me to test. My opinion of the queens marmalade would probably be to chuck it up, so it makes no difference to me. looks prettyish tho. what are the floaty lumps in it though?
i liked the video. i must have been one of the first to watch it, coz i was on the site when it popped up. and freezed the whole computer up. oh well. it was worth it i suppose.
sorry about the long comment (again).
Bel x 🙂
Actually I think it’s one of your shorter.
Bits are orange rind, yum yum, and it hasn’t set, it’s kind of runny.
