Well here's a pattern that's difficult to photograph! No, your eyes haven't gone blurry on you.
Oooh, big 80's shoulders (but by no means as big as they got).

How great is the wild lining?
Someone broke into my car last evening. I don't typically have anything valuable in the car, but I did have a rather large box in the trunk with a convection oven I'd bought as a gift (and hadn't had a chance to bring in). As far as I can tell, after dumping the glovebox and not finding any of my CD's to their liking the thief gave up and went on to the next car. I'm not sure what they were after, but they didn't take anything. I can just imagine some would-be criminal thinking, "Birding guides and bloody stovetop oven from Aldi? What's wrong with these people?"
I haven't had a chance to speak with any neighbours, but I suspect I wasn't alone. It is upsetting though-the car was parked directly in front of the house. I had that happen once when I still lived in Chicago, and all they took was a suede jacket and some road maps, leaving behind my guitar. I guess they go for items that can be carried easily, not convection ovens. It hardly seems worth the effort for so little you might find in a car.
All that aggravation calls for a cocktail to soothe my nerves. Let's take a virtual holiday somewhere tropical:
Trinidad Rum Punch:
(Serves 1-6 depending on level of unwinding required)
9 oz. rum
3 oz. water
3 oz. sugar
1 cup cracked ice
1/8 teaspoon bitters
3 oz. lime juice
6 pieces lime rind
Combine water and sugar in a saucepan bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Cool for 1 hour. Place cracked ice in a pitcher. Add bitters, lime juice, rum and sugar syrup. Mix well and decorate with lime peels.
Remember kids, it isn't nice to take things that don't belong to you. Why not stay home and
raid the booze do your homework, like we did at your age?
