Reading, Listening, Watching  
Reading: Still Red Seas under Red Skies. It's been a busy few weeks with a fair amount of rushing around and reading tends to suffer in those circumstances.

Listening: Stuff you Missed in History Class episode on the history of American Cakes. It is slightly off-putting to realise I've no real idea what any of these cakes are. I'm still sticking with the podcast because I like the idea of it in a vague way but so far the topics haven't really grabbed me and this one definitely assumes context I don't have. I also find the adverts slightly off-putting as well (though, you know, I've nothing in principle against the idea of podcasts making money).

Watching: At the weekend I got halfway through The Five Doctors with G who wanted some Who that would cheer her up but hadn't realised quite how long a classic Who story would be.

According to the podcast, colonial gingerbread is a very variable beast ranging from something that is basically a biscuit to full-blown cake - whether you can source this variety in Bristol, I don't know...

I shall have to see what I can find. Either that or persuade adaese to explore her colonial heritage.
