I would imagine it would be similar to thin herb breads, but with olives, spices and if you were well off, some meat.
Awesome, I'd love to read the whole thing - I'll probably give some of them a try. I think I'm not a bad cook, so we'll see how it works out. Certainly my mother and Kate both like(d) my cooking, and Ali and Melissa enjoyed my muffins, so we'll see how I go. I'd like to believe I inherited at least a bit of Mum's talent.

And haha, that's nerdtastic. Do let me know how that works out.

Nearly done glass four. StarOting to feel a bit of an effect, but mainly on my balance. Still had enough logical processes to know whether to use 'affect' or 'effect' there! And there we go, glass four's done. Damn, I'm loving this pinot gris.

Ah, Indian food is a tricky one, because you tend to have to know exactly which amount of whatever you should put in, and often you have to do a lot of taste testing before you can find the exact sort of curry you want. You may have better luck, but my curry cooking abilities are so bad they nearly put me off the stuff for good! So yeah, just a warning - follow recipes closely if you go for it.
Ahh, OK. Yeah, I find with Italian you can just bung stuff in and experiment and it'll work out edible. Though I looooved that naan bread, so at least having that as a side dish would be nice.

I think this is a fucking good idea and it would really boost Australia's IQ too.

God, France just keep fucking up. This is sad and miserable.

Scorecards:

Australia 26 - 3 France

Pinot gris 3 - 1 tawny port

Onto fourth glass of pinot gris; I'm really loving this. I should also point out that I tend to pour more than a standard glass - I don't skimp at all.

But some versions of the story say they were French, while others say they were Scottish. The French one is probably right, and is the one I hear most.
I like it more now than I did when I was younger, but there's something about it I still don't really dig. Could be a lot worse, though.

That's neat. But why would someone want to take the name of Frater?

God, I hate Channel 7's commentators. They seem to be bitching about the Kiwi ref just because he's Kiwi. Fuck off.

Hey, Robbie Deans? Fuck you, you traitor! TRAAAAIIIIITOOOOOOR. And fuck you, New Zealand Rugby Football Union, for not securing his services and keeping him on Kiwi soil. Goddamn, you guys are fools for letting him go.

And 31-3 to Australia now.

That would be really cool, if we both tried a few different ones and compared them. We probably have inherently different styles of cooking pizza, so it could be interesting. If yours turns out good, you can have a job at my super Mt. Olympus themed restaurant bar.

Will do! Just need to find out which type of bread they most commonly used. The ancient Greeks had over 80 different types of bread. Also, you'll like this - the island of Rhodes was well known for its "sweet wines", so they may have made something very similar to port. See, it wouldn't have been that bad living 2500 years ago!

Yeah, exactly. Nobody usually cares how you make pizza, unless the pepperoni is off or something. Indian food seems to me like a real art. My brother has made naan before, he may be able to give a few tips - I have been meaning to at least try making cheese naan, I guess that can't really go wrong!

See, I think it's a really nice name. I'm surprised I haven't used it for a character in a story yet. Hm, my writing, now there's something I should pursue over the holidays. But yeah, it's a name I quite like.

Frater is from "fraternity", i.e. they were brothers. Mum and Nan both really like the name, and Nan reverted to it after she divorced Grandad (Mum has kept her married name, mainly because she shares it with me and is used to it), but I'm not keen on it. The only last name in the family that I really like is Keesing.

You still write, then? I know Axver comes from one of your own characters, but I wasn't aware you still did stuff like that. See, I loved writing when I was younger but I don't really do that much anymore. Although when I do, everyone seems to like it, so I don't know, maybe I should get into that.

Oh, of course! That's not such a bad name, then. I wouldn't mind looking at the family tree again, just for something interesting. Grandpa said there was, funnily enough, an Indian name going back a bit, but I don't know what it is, or what tree it's on.

Hey, France, you fucking suck!

And Australia, so do you! How could you possibly pass to nowhere and blow that sure opportunity? For fuck's sake! Also:

Pinot gris 4 - 1 tawny port.

Time for more pinot gris. This is sensational, truly.

I put it on the game, and haha, I don't know much about RU, but I know enough to tell that France has absolutely no will.

Hah, my style of making pizza can be very rough-and-ready at times, more about saving time and making life easy than anything else. I guess with cooking for myself, I'm focused on sustinence more than anything else. I don't need to impress myself with my cooking, you know?

And ooh, awesome. You know, despite my love of port, I tend to prefer my wines to be drier. But sweet wine made properly is absolutely DIVINE. Late harvest chardonnay is a favourite of mine.

Stunningly enough, it wasn't! Wow, a typo that got past me. Remarkable.

And dear god, 38-3 to Australia. This is brutal. Australia isn't even playing that well. France are just WOEFUL. Why are they even here? This is a third-string side and I don't know why they are even bothering. They haven't a clue what to do. There we go, conversion, 40-3 now.

Exactly; pizza is hard to fuck up. As long as you put on half-decent ingredients and cook it long enough, people are sure to enjoy it. Will have to learn more about Indian. Wish my Indian neighbour was still my neighbour rather than somebody who has disappeared out of my life - I bet he could have taught me a lot.

FUCK, Australia, you had a golden opportunity there and blew it! You may be 40-3, but you don't deserve it. Most underwhelming, unspectacular 40-3 ever.

Can I be Minister for Transport?

Yeah, I still write. Haven't done so much since about April, when uni got really busy, but last summer, I wrote very intensely. My style used to be focused on action-adventure, but now you can tell I'm a Dostoevsky fan and that I like to explore religious matters in a socio-cultural and socio-political context (as opposed to dealing with them theologically). The Axvers have passed into history though; I now associate the name far too much with myself. Bit of a shame, really, but I don't have the passion for writing action-adventure as I used to.

Heh, cool. Speaking of India, I suspect that my actual last name is a fraud, created by my great-grandfather after he abandoned the British Army in India. My grandmother believes this could be plausible. The general agreement is that he took a new name upon arriving in New Zealand in order to start anew with life. Whatever the case, we have no idea where my last name comes from, or what my great-grandfather's origins were. He took that to his grave.

5th glass just about done. Feeling intoxicated even if I may not seem it. Whee.

Yeah, this is true. The French have just been miserable. At least they just scored a try on full time. The commentators are talking up the Wallabies, but honestly, the Wallabies have not been impressive - this was just an astonishingly easy French team to beat. I suppose that's what you get when this is the first time a third of the team has played at the international level! The lack of organisation is staggering, and I'm disappointed these games have not been contests.

40-10 at full time. Wow, how underwhelming. But at least I'm pissed!

Also, the ad on TV right now has the worst cover ever of Who Are You.
