BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Fri 07-Feb-14 02:47:44


I was just coming here to tell Z what a disruptive, bad influence sol is, but i see she has been distracted by some high pitched buzzing and rear end apis dance routine.

Bet you can't wait to get back ...

Somewhat bleary today!

Early night wink

sanssoleil Sat 08-Feb-14 00:09:54

I sorted out a lot of my sheet music for a friend whose daughter is getting interested in Early Music.

I would love to have a skill like making/repairing/restoring old instruments.

Early night<relatively> here too,feel exhausted and tomorrow a big cooking day.

Sunny day here but have been a miserable cowsad

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sat 08-Feb-14 09:58:12

Sorry you're feeling mis sol, managing in this weather isn't helping is it.
Sunny, blue sky here at the moment but very blustery and cold.

Could you do that? I imagine it could be physically demanding but you could start with something small, and your natural affection for the instruments and passion for the music would lead you in the right direction. I mean you could teach yourself rather than study?

Are you cooking for a special occasion?

sanssoleil Sat 08-Feb-14 10:30:26

Hey there Bee-not being able to leap around like a mountain goat[?!] is pretty mis-making and 13yrs of fekking unremitting insomnia.....

Very blue and blowy here today-will not be able to go anywhere wiyhout being sweptawaygrin

Very kind of you to think I may have/could develop those skills but chiffonading courgettes is the extent of my knife skills

We always had the worst carved pumpkin in street/classsad

My rota cooking for the Community Kitchen-not sure what we have been gifted this week or the veggies that have been donated so that may require some quick-thinkinggrin

Have a good Saturday everyone.

Hello all. Am planning junk clearing today but am currently lusting over Michel Roux on TV <sigh>

I ought we had boar or marauding herds of something upstairs earlier. Was FidBoy1 clearing out his room shock At 8.30 am.

We've determined it's a scientific/physical anomaly that the volume of junk in the 6 giant bags is actually greater than the space he has cleared. We had a few nostalgic moments when he found old videos at the bottom of a shelf, Postman Pat, Thomas the Tank Engine et al. He's now 17 grin

Would be interested in the ratatouille recipes as although I love all the ingredients, I've always been rather disappointed in mine. I promise to lie about whose recipe I prefer grin

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sat 08-Feb-14 19:30:22

Wow! Fid am impressed that a 17 year old boy is a) conscious at and b) clearing out his room enthusiastically enough to make noise grin
Hope you're keeping some of the nostalgic things -for DGCs-.

My rat. recipe is just heavy on courgettes and garlic and I leave out the aubergines - too spongy. Red wine, reduced, tomato pureé and Provencal herbs, and sometimes a bit of chilli. Nice with some green tomatoes too, when you can get them.
I don't chiffonade the courgettes though, I have no clue what that means!

sol am shocked that instrument restoration would involve knives! I imagined lots of little brushes and pots of oils, and little diggy things like an old manicure set and a magnifying glass, and fine sandpaper and soft dusters grin
Hope your cooking went well and hasn't tired you out smilewine

sanssoleil Sat 08-Feb-14 20:58:29

Hey just back-a few sacks of potatoes donated-so have had to be quite creative[and peel,peel.peel]

My rat sounds similiar to Bee's-cookoff the onions,red peppers,celery in oil and garlic,add red wine to reduce the cook out courgettes with addition of chopped tomatoes,and tom puree and torn basil

sometimes I add a kick of chili-you can buy tins of aubergine from turkish or Iranian delis as a cheat,when I have ripe aubergines I add them at the post-onion stage

but garlic and basil are key.

I don't chiffonade the courgettes in a rat or I would have the ragu police claiming my mezzalunagrin

Restoration involves lots of paitience and fine motor skills in which I am lacking as well as my poor impulse control.

I used to keep the restorers in business-old instruments don't like temperature fluctuations<rather like me>

My sister works with conservateurs and they all have a similiar temperament of other-worldliness and patience for perfection.

Anyone watching the Sochi Olympics?

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sat 08-Feb-14 22:52:42

Actually just watching the opening ceremony! Why did they have to Disney-fi so much of it. It would have been better dour and serious.
Will catch up with the actual sport. Which bits do you like sol?

Do you not have to have fine motor skills and impulse control in order to dance? I suspect you are a bit hard on yourself -also suspect this may be massive understatement- smile

Celery! Never done that. Tins of aubergines - on the list, thanks for the tip. Basil, not so sure, prefer chilli.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sat 08-Feb-14 22:53:30

Tsk, massive strike out fail!

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sat 08-Feb-14 22:55:18

should have done double dashes

sanssoleil Sat 08-Feb-14 23:14:04

Basil,respect the basil!!

I love the ice-dancing/skating-although I thought the commentary was appalling-all Robin Cousins said was'triple salko' then on the slo-mo repeats he managed a few'toe-loops'-he didn't seem to be able to spontaneously <and obvs unobtrusively> to comment/inform as the performances were happening .Harsh but true.

Practically everything else too.although I know les ,apart from snowboarding which I did with my first set of girlies many years ago.

Love luge and slalom and ski-jump and skeleton bob but hate that jeffiing--housework on ice-- curling[?]

I can sew/embroider but am no good at maintenance/care/restoration believe me-I MUTILATED MY DOLLS ffs grin

maybe a singing nun or a dancing surgeon but not a mindful lute/crumhorn/shawm restorer!!

sanssoleil Sat 08-Feb-14 23:21:28

Must admit I loved Clare Balding wandering ound in a blue anorak for an hour before the party got started!

And I thought the Tiger mums of MN would love the Cyrillic alphabet stuff although it was pretty shockingshock that the Ruskis laid claim to inventing Television and maybe N for Nabokov was a bit ironic/desparate for an N thang

Why not Nureyev? oh yes he was gaygrin

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 09-Feb-14 00:01:52

I used to skate! I started when I was 4 and was very good by the time I was 11/12, then puberty hit and I lost interest sad. I couldn't do triple anything but I was a good jumper and I could spin on the spot, toe loop-piece of piss!

Ahem, sorry. Don't know why anyone should be a good commentator just because they are good at a sport. His Paint it Black Gold was stunning.

You would think they'd be a bit quiet about Nabokov, I missed that bit and the rest of your paragraph!

I'd actually have more respect for them if they had been more upfront.
We're serious and bigoted and talented and dour! Hated the cutesy mascots and cartoon St. Basil's Cathedral.

I love Clare Balding, but most of the sport puts me to sleep.

sanssoleil Sun 09-Feb-14 00:40:53

Sorry the point I was making about Robin Cousins was that his commentary was shite and his role was as a commentator-I agree that because you have achieved in a sport does not give you the skills to analyse and inform for public broadcasting purposes.

BBC use Beth Tweddle to commentate on the gynmastics and she just hasn't the broadcasting skills to engage the audience and it is awkward listening.

I thought N should be for Nureyev<said it again Mr Putin >

or Nijinsk

Bit of Glastnost wouldn't go

You have abandoned Demise thread before it reached it's full potential.

Zombie is disappointed. wink

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 09-Feb-14 01:03:32

I was agreeing with you !
I guess it's a good proposition to ask a high achieving sport person to commentate, but quite difficult to audition them for it or ask them to undergo training.

Nureyev would, without doubt, be N to the power of N.

BTW, 13 years is a long time to sleep badly, sorry for you for that.

You sound really cross.
