Today Was A Good Day…

breakfast of champions

Stayed up until the early hours of the morning playing video games, then had jelly (jello for Americans) for breakfast. It was blue. And awesome. Now I am going to nap until midday.

    What kind of games is what I was wondering? Right now the only ones I play are occasional musical stuff or karaoke, but there was a time when I played a few more! It might be time to look for a new one.

    Also, now whether I have any jelly in the house. I still think of it as jelly even after years of hearing people call it jello over here.
    Mmmmm jelly.

    I like Jello best in red
    Straw- or rasp berry, as I’ve said.
    Sometimes lime might also do
    But never ever Jello Blue!

    Glad you had a good day!

    Jelly is okay I guess. 🙂 As a kid there was always jelly and vanilla sauce at birthday parties, but I wasn’t really that big of a fan. Now ice cream and chocolate sauce with sprinkles, that is a proper breakfast!

    I will have to admit I haven’t tried jelly/jello. perhaps I haven’t lived yet. Shall I start red or blue? I think blue might suit me best. It’s definately cool looking.

    Blue jello is my favorite. 🙂 (I know we’ve had this discussion on the forum, but if you call that jelly, what do you call what we call jelly??? *g*)

    Playing games and sleeping till noon? *sigh* Trying to make us all jealous, aren’t you?

      Jam. The word you are looking for is Jam.

      Everybody needs a day off every now and then, yesterday was one of those days for me.

      (I’m actually demonstrating good self discipline, on account of it would be easy to give the impression that I work all the time writing things, and this shows I don’t. It’s about life balance.)

        I wasn’t implying you’re a slacker, I hope you know! You work damn hard, and the reason I couldn’t be self-employed is because I wouldn’t work as hard as you do. I’m glad you had a day off, and did exactly what you wanted. That’s what days off are for. I highly approve, even though I know that means little. 😀

          Oh Alyx, dear, responsible Alyx, I bet you would work super hard. Thank you for your support in my blue jello expeditions 😀

    Hey Alyx, I know that’s a rethorical question but I can’t help myself. 😉 That would be fruit preserves, no? Or jam. Or marmalade…

    (Oh and I raised my hand and Miss Renard let me speak. Okay, I didn’t, but let’s pretend…)

    Also, oh the forum…

          That’s cuz your American wife knows there’s a difference between jelly and jam! Jam has all the seeds and fruit pulp still discernible. Jelly is clear, like jello, but much thicker.

          If Loki is saying they use the same word to cover both, I think that’s just lazy. 😉

          As for preserves, it’s like jam, but frequently even chunkier. I have to admit I’m not a fan of preserves. Uh….as defined by Americans, I mean. Obviously it might mean other things in other countries. *g*

      See my post below, DD. I think Jelly as defined by American English (which, as we know, is definitive *vbg*) is different from jam or marmalade. But in any case, you do need to try jello. Don’t forget the whipped cream. 🙂

    Finally as there were no comments enabled for the subsequent post…. How does one back up a blog easily?

      Depends on the site. WordPress allows you to export a blog, but the easiest and simplest way is just to write your posts in word or something first on your own pc and store them locally. Never trust anything to stay on a web server anywhere.

        Yikes good plan I hadn’t even considered yet. I just started to blog a little myself. Backup indeed is the next plan!

      Not really, unless you want to export your entire blog every time you make a post and even then you can only use the exported files in another wordpress site. If you care about what you’re posting and want to keep it, never just type it into the blog itself. If you do that you might as well go and write it on the wet sand on the beach.
