SHAKEN BUT NOT STIRRED
While we expect todays techno gadgets to be of robust build for a reasonable price , and on the whole they are . I must applaud Acer as their bargain laptop managed to last nearly 2 years at the hands of Mr C. Finally , yesterday the poor thing gave up the heroic struggle and sank beneath the encroaching flood of dodgy websites.A fizzle , a puff of smoke and a waft of kippers and the Acer is no more.Following a frenzied shopping trip to find a replacement my mind turns to a suitable Viking style funeral for the much loved , dearly departed.Floated out to sea on a burning pile of 1970's porn mags I feel would be appropriate
***brushes away a tear***
Anyway , yesterday was pancake day . Mr Natemare pinched my Pancake Party format to celebrate the occasion .
You supply batter , a couple of frying pans and a selection of sweet and savoury fillings .Your guests bring drink and any unusualy fillings they fancy. Everyone mills about making their own pancakes and getting drunk , the pancake cooking and tossing get messier and less coordinated as time goes on , and the filling combinations get wilder and more stomach churning.We were drinking Martini Cocktails that were as far as I could tell ,pure gin , so you can imagine how quickly it became raucous.
It was great fun , but one word of caution.....the trick is to send everyone home before someone throws up.After all that culinary abuse and alchohol , once one of the blighters honks , you would suddenly be awash in an excorcist stylee vomit fest.
You have been warned
