Not much of interest lately; see aforementioned "Month-o-Workshops". This Sunday I managed to buy three new pairs of shorts, but only after failing to do so on Saturday because of vexations involving finding a substitute barber because my normal barbershop is closed for vacation, a lunch that was tasty but disagreed with me, and a pair of older shorts that ripped all the way up the front when I bent over to pick something up (while I was at home, thankfully).
Last night I decided to use up the rest of a bag of plums that was going bad, so I made a cake using this recipe. The recipe is in British, so I had to do a lot of translation and figure out a bunch of substitutions, but the end result is very tasty. (Also very moist. And fairly flat because I baked it in an oversized pan.) I'm not sure how much all the spices come through in the flavor, but the plums sure do.
