Yesterday: Baking pie

Yesterday Calum taught me how to bake apple pie. He was rather fussy
about needing a food processor to properly flake frozen butter and
shortening, but he’s _good. I remember tasting his apple pie at the
MIE potluck. He’s a good teacher, too. =)

I had a bit of a problem getting back into the dorm due to software
bugs in the card key system. I stayed out past midnight, so I couldn’t
call the entry assistant. I called Mariana, but she couldn’t leave the
room because her key didn’t work either, and there was no point in
both of us being locked out. I am eternally grateful to James for
waking up (bathrobe and all) and letting me into the main entrance so
that I could ring the doorbell to my suite and get Mariana to let me
in.

I’m so, so glad I have friends like these…

Random Japanese sentence:

このようにして、おじいさんは、あたりをみまわすたびに、きれいなねこがみつかっておいていくことができなくなりました。そして知らない間に、そこにいるねこをみんな拾い上げてつれていくことになってしまいました。 So it happened that every time the very old man looked up, he saw another cat which was so pretty he could not bear to leave it, and before he knew it, he had chosen them all.
