Mum bought me Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes for my birthday. I have just finished chapter 1 (go me!!!)

The curvature of a surface is a measure of, well, how curvy it is. Most curved surfaces have positive curvature, turning them into spheres or ellipsoids and the like. If a surface has negative curvature you end up with, well, a frill, which is what I crocheted above by the cunning device of adding in an extra sixth stitch for every 5 on the row below (hence the ratio of 5:6).

A. Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer.
B. Go to SHUFFLE songs mode.
C. Write down the first 15 songs that come up—song title and artist—NO editing/cheating.

And the Songs )

From which I think you can only conclude that I have a penchant for 80s pop and Classical Music.

This is [livejournal.com profile] phina_v's recipe, as requested by misc. Primeval fans.

4 Mars Bars
4oz Butter
200g (or 230g) slab of Dairy Milk Chocolate
3oz Rice Krispies (or own brand rice pops or whatever)

1. Melt the Mars Bars with 3oz butter. I generally do this in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water but I'm told Mars Bars can be melted direct in a saucepan.
2. Stir in the rice krispies.
3. Place in a buttered baking dish (I also line with baking parchment).
4. Melt Dairy Milk and remaining butter. I generally reuse my previous bowl.
5. Spread over base.
6. Leave to cool. We put it in the fridge to speed up the process.
