Oh shit


I was at work for fifteen hours today. I got home late, tired and cranky. I opened the door and smelled burning rancid grease. I had left the stove on, with a frying pan sitting on the flames. 15 hours. I'm amazed the place didn't burn down. I'm trying to work my way around to feeling grateful. Mostly I feel tired. I hope I'm not planning to burn the place down. You know, stir things up, create a little excitement.

I'm not crazy about the M4A format either. I'm working on it.

Update: No more more m4a's!

Scared the shit out of me.

I know how it feels to have so much on your mind. Like Joe says: you really dodged the bullet.

Close call, Jon. I was wondering how those California brush fires got started; and here was may thinking it was mostly dumb college kids with a full tin of petrol and a smouldering resentment against society.

We have no gas here in our blocks. They pose too great a risk. Still. The natives keep the fire services busy enough with chip pan infernos raging on electric hobs. And in the winter people smuggle in Calor Gas canisters disguised in sheets.

Thanks to all. Yes I am lucky. Roz, I was warming left over organic locally grown natural food for a hasty breakfast. Fortunately I was doing so at very low temperature.
