Pizza Making!

Making Pizza was a qualified success. I made the bread-dough base myself following a recipe, and ended up with a base which was a little too small, and a little too salty. I made the sauce the same way I normally make my own pasta sauce, and it was tasty, but there was too much of it. The multiple layers of cheeses worked perfectly.

Cooking the Pizza was tricky because I lack a proper pizza pan -- instead I put it on foil on a baking tray. Unfortunately the base stuck to the foil and the topping slid off whilst trying to disconnect it.

Next time I'll just put it directly onto a greased baking tray.

Been a while ...

Just to keep people up to date with where I am at the moment in my life (no clue how much various people know/don't know):
  • I started working for BBC R&D in September last year (Well technically I started working for BBC R&I -- it changed back to being R&D shortly after I joined)
  • Cat and I are still planning on getting married on 29/02/2012 -- so mark the date!
  • I submitted my Thesis for initial reading by the examiners a couple of months ago, but I don't know when my viva will be.
  • I've been going to the gym at work on my lunch breaks for a few months now, I think it's helping my figure a bit -- it's definitely helping my arm strength ;)
  • My long-running Exalted Dragon-blooded game switched over to using GURPS a few months ago -- and it's working much better. The rules notes can be found here.
  • I've started playing in a weekly D&D 4th Edition game run by gaspodog. It's going quite well, but I admit that the game sometimes feels a little shallow.
  • I'm pondering taking up some sort of after-work activity on a week-day, but have yet to decide what. Suggestions are welcome! Something physical would be good -- and any suggestion will be considered (though some may be dismissed).
  • I miss some of my old friends whom I don't get to see very often. Am pondering organising a party/drinks/some sort of meet-up.
So, all-in-all life is damned good :)
I like my job, enjoy my hobbies, and have a little bit of free-time which I am considering how to fill :)
How are other people doing?

Did anyone else notice that Radio 4's comedy retrospective programme listen against had the thought for the day given by a satanist high priest named Vexen? Coincidence?

New Year's Eve (lack of) Plans ...

I have been informed that we shall not be partying this year, but will instead be having a quiet evening in with films. I have also been informed that anyone else who also wants a quiet evening in is welcome to join us.
