Seriously, I'd forgotten just how much better a decent gas hob is over traditional electric plates. With my pile of stuff collected over the weekend, I finally grabbed the omelette pan, and have just had my own, self cooked, and damn nice omelette. With a side of halloumi.

So good...

I don't want to go back to an electric hob again, ever. Well, actually, one of those modern expensive glowing things would probably be ok, but I likes me my gas I does.

Anyway. Was supposed to spend morning unpacking and sorting, the afternoon trawling employment agencies, again, and then go into Cowley St. I have in fact spent the morning reading and feeling awful, the afternoon catching up online and pratting around, have finally had lunch + coffee, and will now get myself together to go into town.

Organised? Me? Whatever gave you that idea. Really ought to get around to unpacking the rest of the car, it's got the best part of my CD collection in it, and I want to rip more of it onto the walkman.

I agree, gas hobs rule. Having to put up with an electric hot plate hob is one of many niggling little reasons that I wish I'd had a closer inspection of our current place before signing the lease (instead of going "Ooh! huuuuuge living room! Ooh! huuuuuge bedroom!" and rolling over and playing nice for the estate agent).

No, it's one of those built-in-to-the-counter-top jobs, and besides replacing electric with gas? I don't even know if there's gas in the kitchen, after all the oven is electric.

Yes, it's gas all the way for me. Unfortunately, when we tried to turn the gas on at my mother's new house, we discovered that there is a leak in the gas pipe somewhere, so we're cooking with a hotplate until that gets fixed. Bah!

I think gas hobs win hands down as well, even on an old gunked up cooker like ours. I'd have an electric oven though, as they tend to be more economical.

Gas hob, electric oven. That's the combination for me. And I just got in from the pub and now I'm craving halloumi. Amongst other things. You sod.

Can't do much about the other cravings (at least, not from here). Sorry.

Dammit, has Reed not got back to you yet? Bloody useless.

That much flexibility, and still boring in bed? Totally useless.

I thought the Torch was her brother too... Plainly I am out of touch. Although I was always more a DC girl than Marvel anyway.

Ah, well, it was Batman for me. That Batman cartoon where all the men were triangular was on when I was just of an age to move up from the Beano and Dandy. And also, obviously, being British and sci-fi orientated, I got into 2000AD, and there were Batman/Judge Dredd crossovers.

Judgement on Gotham with Simon Bisley's fully painted art... Guh. God, that's a sexy comic.

I have three big boxes of 2000ad. I tried to sell them last year, but nobody would buy them, and I'm half glad...
