The Nerd Degree: Cake

Cake. It’s safe to say, I’m a fan. And when it comes to the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cakes book, I take that shit seriously. So when I say if I were a cake I’d be the swimming pool cake, even though it’s clearly for comedy purposes… I’m also deadly serious. Any cake that […]

The ham diaries

Hello! And welcome to the first Blog Idle post of 2013. I’d like to say that it’s great to be back but if I’m being really honest with you (which is something I generally try to make a good stab at) then I’d much rather be either asleep or, depending on what time of day […]
