Bit of trivia to impress your friends with

Just thought I would mention that today, Shrove Tuesday, has been the International Pancake Day. Ta-daaaa!

Err… no link to the arb world, really.

Just tickled me. Probably some sinister conspiracy by a big, corporate pancake mixture manufacturer behind it (there is not – It is the last day before Lent, actually), but be that as it may: if I want to up my popularity score with our girls, it is hard to top a big stack of pancakes. So there you are.


“Excuse me, did you realize that today is the International Pancake day?” is probably a better way to break the ice and to kick off a conversation than to go round telling the cow’s tail joke.

Believe me, I have been there. Still feeling just ever such a little bit paranoid in regards to white Volvos (corporate tie boy’s ride).
