I've been reading this book called Great Tales From English History: Cheddar Man to DNA: A Treasury of True Stories of the Extraordinary People Who Made Britain Great by Robert Lacey in portions, a tale or ten at a time. These short, couple of pages long sbbreviations of history, are well-written and while not revealing anything outstanding (at least not yet) or unheard of, they manage to entertain me splendidly.
Which begs the question: should one do something similar about a subject near and dear to one's heart? Like, fandom? And Finnish fandom especially. I'm thinking this might be something to ponder and wonder, and then either give it up or just do it.
At some point. When I've retired from active fandom. Like, now? I mean. at some point, now that I am retired.
Relaxing day of walking the dogs and cleaning the kitchen. And cooking some really nice and creamy thick sweet potato soup. I read the recipe from the latest Vihreä Lanka (the youth attachment), was enchanted by the pleasing way how it was written ("when you have forgotten to cut the sweet potato, take the pan away from the cooker" or "and mix it all in at some point, I don't really have schedule for this"), and decided to have a go. Forgot to get some ginger, so I was well in line with the spirit of the recipe. The result was tasty, if bit too rich, methinks. Less cream next time.
