Wednesday Morning, May 23

1) The current earworm is Kay Thompson and Fred Astaire singin' "Ringa Dem Bells" (or "Clap Yo Hands," whatever it's called) in Funny Face:

2) Eating dinner with colleagues at the office last night (see "Chicken tikka masala" in last entry) somehow we ended up talking about how to prepare scrambled eggs. Sarah Bernhardt said that Escoffier made the best scrambled eggs; his secret was to stir them with a fork that had a clove of garlic on it. A colleague, for supersmooth eggs, strains them once or twice before cooking them. Wow!

3) Let's just take a moment of gratitude for a) colleagues who are a true joy to work with and b) the peaceful peaceful mornings at home since Princess Thundertoes moved away.
