is a really hilarious book, at least if you're into that kind of thing, you know. It's half Pratchett, and the introduction itself is worth the entire cost of the book.
Look! It's the Spanish Inquisition: "Art thou a witch,
Um. Moving on.
, with apologies for having forgotten until now:
I doubled the recipe and it was enough for our family of 5, and although it's okay with french bread, I personally would probably prefer it with regular sandwich bread. French just takes longer to cook. =)
(I made flans today! Yum yum.)
And now, moving on a bit more, we have interview questions from crystallia
, who dared to ask questions that actually -- gasp -- made me think: 1. If you could ask God for one gift, what would it be?
This is really tough. Possibly I would ask for the wisdom to know what exactly I am supposed to do in various situations so I can quit wasting time mucking about trying to figure it out and taking twice as long to get to the right end as I should. And then I'd hope for the willpower to use that no-longer-wasted time in a useful manner and not just waste it on something else.
2. If you were given an extra $1,000 each month, how would you use it?
I'm boring; I'd probably just save it for use on something later. Then again, maybe I'd be impulsive and buy a shiny black Chrysler Crossfire. You can never tell with me!
3. If you had to live the life (not necessarily make the choices) of any famous person, past or present, who would it be?
I'd like to be Queen Elizabeth II. Some people think I kind of look like her in her younger days, anyway. ;) But I wouldn't marry Prince Phillip and I would raise up my family a bit differently, I should think.
(Seriously, I really don't have a clue who to choose. Each era/person/position has its drawbacks, and I'm just pretty much happy being me!)
4. If you could work in any job, in any place, where would it be and what would be the job?
This library and this job, only without any messy bureaucracy or annoying things. Or, alternatively, as the head of my own private library, "Where Membership is a Privilege, Not A Right!"TM Patrons would have to pass an extensive background check before their application is approved, and I would have strict rules and would be merciless to those who break them, would not allow any children under 16, and reserve the right to kick out anybody at anytime. Mwahahaha.
5. If someone wanted to become exactly like you (in all good ways), describe in detail what they would need to do, be like, everything :-)
Why would anybody want to be exactly like me? o_O Scary thought, that. In a nutshell, they would have to read voraciously, remember odd little facts from said reading at useless and often highly inappropriate times, have a twisted sense of humor and a a contrarian spirit, appreciate the odd made-up word, and be able to bluff their way through almost any situation whilst quaking inside. In dress and manner they would be rather chamelianish, being at times the bohemian, the proper lady, and the tomboy, sometimes all at once. They would change their mind often about little things but rarely about big things. They would also be very bad at describing themselves. =P
I'm too lazy to go look up the exact wording, but if anybody is dying for a few interview questions of their own, comment and thou shalt receive.
