I'm Baaack...

Right.

That was good. Trips out have been few and far between lately and I'd started to get to that point where going out is scary just because it's so unusual.

Only stayed for a little while, also good (probably for Ricky too). It's good because if going out is followed by crash and distress, it reinforces anxiety about the process.

'twas good to see Ricky.

Postscript:

Dammit! Now I want cake. And last week we did a quick jaunt to Ackland Street (am doing quick jaunts at every opportunity ATM, for reasons see above), and I discovered that my favourite cake shop now does my favourite cake both by the slice and in the form of a mini-version. (A tiny little kugelhopf in that funny shape with a hole in the middle). Used to be you had to buy a full sized cake, sold by weight, just a bit too much for one Noodlebear.

However, not only is 10B elsewhere for the afternoon, Ackland Street is a place to avoid on the weekends unless you really like traffic jams and lots of swearing - it's bad enough on weeknights but on the weekend the entire population of southern suburban Melbourne goes there with the expectation of having a nice time drinking coffee, eating cake and watching other people doing exactly the same thing, and they do get cranky when the reality of no parking, poor service, and the inescapable truth that they're watching the same people they see every week in their own local supermarket hits home.

Or maybe the coffee's just a bit too hefty for the average palate. But point being, I could really go a chocolate kugelhopf. Damn.

One Noodlebear's worth of cake = just a little bit more than you should have had.

That you had a good time out is great news!
:)
What kind of cake is a kugelhopf? Too lazy to google.
:P
