combine 2 egg whites, 1 1/2 cups white sugar (castor sugar), 1 table spoon of corn flour, 1/2 teaspn of vanilla essence, 1/3 cup of hot water, in mixer with speed of almost maximum untill forms big peaks :P, oil grease proof paper and place on tray oil side up, pour mixture into circle shape with bigger sides than middle, put in moderate oven till slightly golden (around a hour) fill with whipped cream and fruit (unless your me and put choclate sauce with skittles and bbq chips in it lol yummy may make some people sick)

so looow

ok so theres this big ten tenors concert comming up and I have a solo;) hehehe I sang it for my grandma and she says "thats horrible" because I have to sing it out of tune lol. my solo consists of three words 'thats to expensive.' but it is one very loud solo. I have to use a microphone which will be interesting because I hate them espesially hand held ones.

What CJay did over the hols.

Ditz did a few of these over the holidays but they haven't scanned real well. She is teaching herself about basic anatomy doing this & her free hand drawing is coming along really well....which just goes to show how differently brains are wired. So often I've seen a kid who is good at math excell in science as well & one who is gifted in one area of the arts is usually more than competant in other areas of the arts as well. Her art teacher was quite put out when Ditz chose music over art but still, for Ditz, art is where she can relax. There is no pressure now to improve (though she still is) & she just enjoys twitting around. I think she's pretty good myself.
