I don’t even like the stuff, if we’re being honest. I’m not a big fan of meringue; that slow baked blend of whipped egg whites and sugar. That said, when it’s done right – with a crisp outer layer, and a chewy, almost marshmallow centre – topped with tart fruit to cut through the sugar and the richness of the whipped cream, it can be quite incredible.

Yes, we’re talking Pavlova – for a few reasons. I saw it flash up in my Twitter feed a bit today (Hi Allan and Umar!). That and I also wanted something containing peaches, in the hopes that we may actually see an impeachment today.

In Other News: Life is Stranger than fiction, Why Rocket League exploded, play Smite at 60fps (on console!) and get extra XP in Blizzard’s moba.

Here’s the new we didn’t get to because we were too busy reading Jacob and the Giant Impeachment.

          Who is the more foolish? The fool or the fool who knows movie quotes and uses them in real life to explain concepts?

          Edit* To try and explain concepts. try. That is the key word here. try. Falls flat, a lot.

    To be fair, I want Pavlova too, since mentioning it earlier. Not with peaches though, I’ll leave that to parliament.

      Or you can leave the Peaches to the Presidents of the USA, then?

        In the US choosing a president is like choosing between different types of diarrhea.
        In SA we do not get a choice we get it all-in-one.

    A new Dungeons and Dragons film? That is just what we need.

    Actor 1: I am a level 5 thief, so I will pick the lock.
    Actor 3: I can support you, I am a level 7 mage and can cast Knock.
    Actor 6: I am told that I am a level 6 Fighter and am told to guard your back. I am also here, as Actor 6, as the other actors left. Also, what is a level 6 fighter anyway?
