balsamic vinegar caramel

with sea salt and dark chocolate. delicious. the irony of flavouring a caramel confection with a vinegar flavoured with caramel is not lost on me.

and again

while doing nothing more than browsing t'web, transferring a file over t'network and formatting (again) t'external drive. If this is a hardware problem, which I still don't think it is, I'm going to be right pissed off, 'cos that'll be all my laptops buggered.

this keeps happening

ffs. bloody mac os. this is a fresh-last-month install with barely any software installed (firefox, vlc, mplayer, skype, cyberduck, Epson printer driver - that is all), yet it crashes with depressing regularity.

Oh well, at least it's not Windows. Although windows would be less likely to screw up my usb disks by creating like ten tiny, useless partitions (including a boot one) every time I try to format them.

new glasses - at last!

(viewed 2207 times)
So, my new glasses are finally here. Well, the day-to-day ones, Vision Express neglected to tell me that the curved lenses on my sunglasses would produce the kind of visual distortions one normally has to pay good money for. Fun, but not exactly suitable for driving. After a brief discussion on how one's staff really ought to know what they're selling, the manager agreed they should remake the sunglasses in a flatter frame. Which means they are slightly more dull than I was hoping for, but at least I will be able to see, in a few weeks when they're made up.

The oakleys, however, are awesome. Really, really good. Almost worth the three-month wait.

Just for the record, since my original order was paid for on the 8th of august, I've had three pairs of Oakleys and four pairs of sunglasses (special order 'cos of blue mirror coating) made up to various presciptions. On top of that, I got a 50% "cock up" refund on the whole order. I dread to think how much money I've cost Vision Express (or rather, how much money they've cost themselves).
