I've offered to make the pancakes for the Jones household, seeing as how I persuaded them to buy buttermilk yesterday for a cake I made. The cake was in honor of Coffee Jones' birthday, which follows Starman's birthday by a few days, and her own brother's birthday by two weeks. The cake followed a really awesome dinner made by Coffee's husband -- Mediterranean burgers and all things deliciously Middle Eastern. And the cake was followed by presents to all the birthday folk, as well as a really gorgeous housewarming present for the Joneses from her brother and sister-in-law. A lovely evening.
And now it is surprisingly quiet at 8:30 in the morning. I wonder how I can get Will Shortz and the NPR puzzle on a radio in time - - ?
