Lumps and Bumps in Stickytape Rolls

(Or Cabbages, and Kings)

Titled thus because I sort of like the cadence of the phrase.

At the time of writing, I'm not certain what I want to put in a blog - and I don't like making promises/commitments I can't maintain.

Therefore I doubt my blog will be updated every day, and I would not expect it to be always amusing, always serious, or always somewhere in between.

Do you have any cookies?

    Well... on the Nintendo Channel anyway.

    Talking about DragonQuest IX

    And I don't know a/ when it'll be shown, or b/ if this'll be international or not.

    Buuut, maybe you would like some clarification on this.
    During the last week, I learned of an event to be held in Melbourne, at 'The Nintendo Experience', a subsection of EB Games in Swanston Street.
    Here is the news source in question:

  2. Egg Flip

    Did you ever have favorite foods/flavours when you were younger, that no matter how hard you look, are almost impossible to find when you grow older?

    For me, 'Egg Flip' is such a flavour.
    I'm not actually sure what goes into an egg flip besides nutmeg, vanilla essence and the titular egg, but something about Big M*'s recipe (what's the bet it's probably just a lot of sugar and artificial flavour >.<) has been in my memory for quite a while.
    *Big M is the brand ...

    We've finally reached the halfway point to Brazil! That is to say, we're
    geographically halfway, but I hope we're more than that time-wise...
    We're at 1 degree 20 minutes north, 24 deg 46 min west. Equator is
    getting close!
    On board things have changed a bit, since mum got a nasty finger
    inflammation. She can't help with cooking or dishwashing or anything
    like that, so my sister and I share that responsibility for the moment..
    It's ...

    Out of the Doldrums

    We're now leaving the 'doldrums' that I talked about in the last blog. I'll try to remember the most interesting things we have experienced here.

    A few hours after I sent my last blog, we were sitting outside eating. Then suddenly mum shouted: "Whale!" Startled, we all looked in the direction she pointed. And sure enough, 100 meters from the boat, lazily lying on the surface, was a 15 meter long whale. Every few seconds, a burst of water ...

    Sorry, been reading a lot of HHGTTG the past few days :P Finished with the first 3 books, and judging by our current speed I'll have plenty time to finish the rest... We're now in the "doldrums", an area a bit north of the equator where there's very frequently calms. Our current speed is 0.5 knots, which is about 10% of an R (I quote: "R is ...
