Here's the best part of yesterday: ARTICHOKES!!


I experimentally poured oil on them and cooked them upside-down for the first twenty minutes, which is not a bad idea. Makes the oil go into the heart.

And today I did some drawing at the Rye café, but not much because it was too noisy. They have a horribly buzzing fridge, and LOTS of small children, but most importantly annoying music at just the sort of volume where it's neither loud enough nor quiet enough to ignore.

Coffee and Work

1. If you pour oil on an artichoke and then turn it upside down, wouldn't the oil all drain away? Just wondering - no artichokes in our part of the world :)

2. That plate is pretty, er, interesting.

3. That coffee or hot chocolate - whatever it was, looks inviting.

4. Are you sure the goat isn't too hungry? He seems to be eyeing that cup with some intent... Like it :)

Ah! Well.
1) no, you only pour a little bit of oil in it, it's more like a coating. Also holds it well, it's technically a flower bud.

2) Plate came with the house. Landlady has many ceramicist friends, hence interesting crockery.

3) It's a particularly nice cappuccino.

4) It's a sheep actually! No worries, only likes green Tea.

Hmmm, I was looking at an animal encyclopedia the other day, and identified a mountain goat as a sheep, and some - forget which - sheep as a goat. Must be a particularly rare disorder: sheep-goat-invertedness.

Good to know he likes green tea :) Surely he'll live long!
