    Mmm…that cheese looks so good 🙂

  2. Catherine McLean

    I agree with you so very much about Heath Ledger.

    Also, I now have this image of you dancing down a sports stadium singing Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. And I’d be willing to bet that you would do so very well.

    #7 through 9 made my giggle.
    And now I want to go rent 10 thing I hate about you

  4. muppy

    hahaha, you ALWAYS bring a smile to my face, thankyou.
    p.s. i think you are right, two horns are the way to go
    p.s.s. i want some of that cheese
    p.s.s.s. i think you would make a great novelty kettle designer…..

    That’s a beautiful looking tart. So glossy! And yes, two horns would be better than one. And yes, it’s so sad about Heath. Such a talent. You can’t help but wonder what work he’d have put out if he was still with us. I always feel so sad for his parents and his sister. Every day they must be sad and think ‘if only’.

    Me and Misty watched 10 Things I Hate About You last week too! I know a lot of the lines still, even having not watched it for about 7 years. Health Ledger breaks my heart for the reasons you stated PLUS in a heart throb sense, man that dude was good looking.

    I like the sounds of echidna potatoes… I imagine a big mound of mashed potato with a bazillion of those potato chip “sticks” stuck in it. That totally would have been something I would have made on my dinner plate as a child. Peas for eyes.

    I loved your post today, it made me smile.

    oh I wish for a photo of you doing your falling from a great height pose. Sylvia and I have done craft – I worry I enjoy it more than her – we even decorated her ukelele. I am curious about your kettles – sounds like they are novelty shapes – it is just leunig crazy shapes or like a cat or dog shape? We saw lots of decorated ukeleles yesterday when was very inspirational!

    Love hearing about your old email drafts and I totally agree about the horns – have wished for the same thing myself many times – I esp hate it when I am driving and hear a horn and wonder if it is for me because I have done something wrong (but what?)

  10. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I am not sure I’d have been composed enough to type if a moth flew down my shirt :p I find them surprisingly distressing for creatures that are so innocent!

    I love 10 Things I Hate About You and it is one of those films that is so closely linked with memories that whenever I think of it, it takes me back to high school and Saturdays spent meandering through the city buying pick and mix ( there are too few pick and mix places remaining, in my opinion), and visiting toy shops, and trying on clothes we couldn’t afford. How that is now >10 years ago is beyond me!

    Echidna potatoes! Also, I long for an elephant-shaped teapot, in which the trunk is the spout, and the tail the handle. Could possibly work as a stove-top kettle as well?

  12. Fatboo

    You’re so imaginative. Love the idea of two types of car horns. I’d so want to use the second type all the time. 🙂

    And mentioning ‘novelty kettles’ is just soo random, hah!

  13. Sarah

    Yes to an Allison Janney shrine.

    My day was spent hungover and nauseous and swearing this would never happen again. I don’t like not feeling good and yelled at my husband for hanging my woollen cardigan by it’s shoulder on the line. Truthfully though, that needed yelling about!

  14. Anna Johnston

    Bah haha! Great post, made me smile. My day consisted of wearing my most exspensive, most pretty of prettiest dresses, a wedding, champagne that took a layer off the roof of my mouth, scallop, duck, apple tart, dancing, laughing till I cried, nursing sick friend from too much mouth stripper champagne, a taxi ride home and now bed. 🙂

  15. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    LOL you’re too funny Hannah 🙂 Love the tart and the blackberries! Not sure when I’ve had blackberries what do they taste like?

    I just had even more cake today lol 3 days in a row 😛 totally enjoying it though…but not sure how much I’d like it when I don’t fit into my clothes anymore HAHAHA 😉

  16. Helena

    mmmm those blackberries look so delicious (not to mention the cheese of course) & now I feel a great urge to re-watch 10 things I hate about you haha.
    P.s 1st time commenter here!! Yay :0)
    P.p.s this is a totally off topic question so I’m sorry in advance…but I read in one of your recent posts you had just got a roommate. Where did you find this flatmate? What’s the process of finding one like? I’m just about to do the same & feel a bit lost… Thanks :))
    p.p.p.s Novelty Kettles!!!

  17. Emma

    Perhaps you could create a line of novelty Allison Janney kettles. I would buy at least two!

    For every touching Heath Ledger moment, there are also memories of The Patriot that make me cringe and create gagging sounds. Mostly because I really don’t enjoy the route Mel Gibson’s chosen to take his career in:/

    I love geocaching!! I used to be a frantic geocacher, alas, now I live in a most likely geocache-free area. Ruh roh.

  18. Three-Cookies

    I guess the first horn can also be used when another driver blows the wrong horn:)
    They should test these horns in one of the chaotic Asian countries first!

  19. Spencer

    Very nice post. It really made me laugh. Love the food pics too.

  20. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL with a title like that, how could you not look? And totally agree on the car horn although would add that la cucaracha horn too and also a coughing one for people you don’t want to blast but are just too dopey to notice that you’re there 😛 Life should come with horns!

  21. Kath Lockett

    Love the idea of your “Spot a Friend” car horn -you should patent it!

    And Ten Things I Hate About You – love love love it, even though I’m an old crone. Introduced it to Sapphire about a month ago who is also hooked.

  22. Ashley

    King Island blue cheese is the best stuff ever. I love their roaring forties cheese. Mmmmm.

    And echidna potatoes? Makes me think of your meringue animals too!

  23. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Roasted sesame miso sauce, OMG. I’ll be first in line for your novelty kettles. I need one in the shape of a bullfrog, I think.

  24. Rach

    I am so with you on the two horns thing!

  25. Heidi

    Love that movie. Love Allison Janney. So much!! Drop Dead Gorgeous is another great example. Reginald removed her crimson cape. Too late for distractions?? How about I bought 5 new folders at officeworks. & my baci chocolate love note was “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” (wtf?!???? No, not romantic enough. Even when written in italian).

  26. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Glad you got that moth sorted out. I was attacked by a massive blow fly during a dinner party last night. They did rather stare when I started flailing my arms about. Oh that cheese looks so good, but I’ve still got Christmas weight to get rid of so am ignoring it. But if you want a great creamy blue, try the Tarago River Shadows of Blue. The cheese guy at the old bus depot markets sells it and it is nom, nom, nommy!

  27. April

    Your posts always make me laugh – I really should read them more often 🙂

    When you first said two car horns, I immediately thought of horns like a bulls (or the devil), not beep beep type horns! I’m sure some fancy psychiatrist has a intrepretation of what that means!!

  28. Catherine

    Love that tarte. I used to work in a patisserie in Balmain and it reminds me of having hair smelling like butter and riding my bike home down Darling Street. Centuries ago. Great berries too.

    My days lately are all about book promotion. It’s driving me nuts!

  29. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Hahahaha. Novelty kettles > PhD, always!

    You went geocacheing?? I have always wanted to do that. What did you find?

  30. elise

    i literally laughed out loud at this one. you are so funny.
    i very much enjoyed the inappropriateness…how can you make me feel sad, thoughtful, and humor all at the same time? well, you managed.
    can i get one of these kettles online?
