Made pancakes (I mean crepes, not American pancakes, of course) last night. I love pancake day. We don't have any scales or even much in the way of measuring jugs, so we just mixed up flour and milk and eggs in a huge glass bowl until it looked about right and then went for it. And they came out perfectly! By the fourth or fifth I'd even got the hang of flipping them without having them land in a soggy unfixable mess, hahah. I should make pancakes more often, they are delicious.

Now it's Lent; I wonder if I should give something up. I'm not any sort of practising Christian anymore, but I still like the idea of it sort of, just for the sake of it, abstaining from something for forty days and then you really appreciate it when the time's up and you can indulge in it again. I don't know what I'd give up, though.

Not a great day today. Pain levels are kind of through the roof, even sitting at my computer chair is difficult, so I've spent most of the day lying on the couch with the laptop watching Revolutionary Girl Utena episodes. I'm not really usually an anime person, and I've been sort of weirded out by this series because it seemed somhow too similar to Rose of Versailles, which I loved so damn much, but... I am actually liking it. Weird cryptic symbolism, girlslash, songs featuring roses and ammonites, what's not to like? Anyway at least it's taking my mind off the fact that my spine hates me.

we had pancakes for dinner last night as well! they kind of became a weird cross between Brit-crepes and American pancakes (griddlecakes? huh, the different terms for 'pancakes' you can find on the internet) but they were DELICIOUS.

sorry you're not having a good pain day. <3

Yummy. Pancakes sound rather good right now, actually. :9

By the way, that 'Palaeozoic In The Flesh' song is fucking AWESOME. We're in a geology class right now, AND we're also learning Japanese, so this is...incredibly brilliant. :D

Coincidentally, I've been a fan of Utena for a long time and thought of it whenever you've mentioned RoV... which I finally am acquiring a manga copy of sometime soonish, heh. It is like a reversal of sorts.

Utena's interesting, though sort of difficult to tell if it actually is trying to say something or if it is just trying to be as weird as possible, sometimes. Especially the movie. But it is so pretty.
