Encountered in my bowl of yong tau foo: fried fishcake with bits of cheese embedded in it. Whoever heard of cheesy fishcake? I must say, though, that it was quite delicious.

    This is the kind of thing the Dutch do. If they don’t sprinkle cheese all over it or stuff it inside, they slather it with pesto but preferably, they’ll do both. This is quite weird when it concerns food with flavours of a more delicate or subtle flavour. Smoked salmon with hearty, garlicky pesto and mature cheese, anyone?!

      Coincidentally, I had smoked salmon and beercheese spread on crackers for brunch today. :)

    For some strange reason, purplejake, I haven’t been able to access your site for the past couple days. Anyway, I wanted to tell you that both my cats were manxes – one absolutely tailless and the other a partial-tailed stumpy. Hence the name of my blog. They were siblings and died within weeks of each other last year, when they were about 14. Don’t tell me your meow is a manx too!

      Nah – my moggie is a common-all-garden tabby – cost €10 from a farm that smelt very strongly of wee!! She looks not unlike your avatar. Are you still having problems with my site?

Welcome to my blog!

My blog-name is Katie but I will not respond if you call me that in real life because it's not my real name. Yes, I do practise virtual-world paranoia. No, I do not enjoy stalkers. But I do enjoy writing and having folks reading said writing, so welcome to my world. It's nice to meet you.

Playing in my head over and over again argh

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
