rosamicula and the Great LJ Outage of 2006
Well, the only connection between the two is that, like other people, I was trying to recall the arrangements for rosamicula's Guy Fawkes party. Fortunately I think we got it about right. The flat has a stunning view across most of central London and beyond, and fireworks provided surround-son-et-lumiere, although whatever was going on in the direction of Kensington and Chelsea was obscured by an interestingly silhouetted Millbank Tower. We met people, not all of whom were goths, and most of whom are probably on LJ somewhere, ranging from those who begin party conversations with an in-depth critique of SSH, to those who pondered how to use an iMac. The food was excellent; I do hope rosamicula might be persuaded to note down her recipe for mulled wine.

The first Sunday of the month is Newbury Farmers' Market, and as I was ill last month, it was time to stock up. Especially good is the news that I got two jars of quince jelly, now apparently in season, so one of those can go aside for parents for Christmas. As well as the usual suspects (boar and apple / venison and red wine sausages), the freezer is now full with partridge and hare. kharin has a recipe that I suspect will use half of the hare; I shall be researching ways of using the rest.

It wa slovely to see you both. I think I will have fewer people at any later gathering as there were sligtly too many for me to talk to everyone. I shall definitely note down the mulled wine recipe.

What is SSH?

I hope you have label in your freezer saying 'here hare here'.

SSH = secure shell, the secure version of telnet. There, don't you feel better for knowing that?
