2. Ascii has a UTI, which she gets frequently. The vet asked that we bring a urine sample with her to the vet. My dad went all around the block with her, and she wouldn't go pee for him. She stepped into the vets office and peed on the rug. Life with a Scottish Terrier, my friends.
3. I decided to make some rice pudding today. I haven't made rice pudding before, so I followed my little recipe, and the pudding doesn't really thicken, and it tastes very saltly, even though I didn't even put as much salt in as the recipe called for. An hour after making it, I suddenly get a brainwave and go to the kitchen. Yep. I put two tablespoons of baking soda in instead of two tablespoons of cornstarch. Which also explains why it started foaming, too.
Mum: Well, when you follow the recipe, I think it's going to be really good!
Way to mom, there, Mum.
