My strawberry jam seems to have failed to set up properly. It’s more like … very thick strawberry syrup.


This is the second time I’ve failed to make a successful batch of jam. I have blueberries upstairs which will be sacrificed to the third attempt. If it doesn’t work, I’m going to be quite upset. I’ve never failed to master the art of cooking something three times in a row. :P

Actually, I usually succeed the first time out. How vexing.

Success! I have finished the things that the cable modem dying this afternoon prevented me from doing at work today, so I feel like a slightly useful thing. Yay!

*AND* I believe my strawberry jam has set up! Hooray! *dancie dancie dance*!

How *sleepy* I am. Soon there will be bed-going. But first I’m going to finish listening to Moulin Rouge. For the third time in a row. :)

I meant to do this on Saturday, but, well, no net.

weight: 194 pounds

swam: 1750 yards


swam: 2300 yards

ate: a brownie immediately afterwards. doh.

I made a yin-yang!

In Photoshop. Everybody keeps asking me, “Out of what?” Ok, so it’s not *very* exciting, but I was happy with it.

I should go swimming now. Splish splash.

Strawberry jam all over the cat! Now why would the kids do something like that?

Well, the cable modem went down, and so I went upstairs and made strawberry jam, and, well, we’ll see if it turns out. The good news is that the 3 jars that were actually full sealed properly. The fourth one, which wasn’t quite full, didn’t, but that’s pretty much to be expected. Now, well, we wait 12 hours and see if it set up! *hopehopehope*!
