Hee. The meme asks about verifiable numbers from your userinfo, mostly, as anonymous_greg says; it's not dependent on self-reporting. So ha. (Of course, it did ask how many communities I have friended, as opposed to how many I actually read on a regular basis...)

Last night I was out at Khublai Khan's for darth_n_furter's birthday, with spiderpixie, laerad, purplesnap, and a variety of other people who may or may not have LJs. Khublai Khan's is great. I had, um, springbok with noodles and a random sauce made up of things that looked nice - you get to go and make your own meal up, you see, from a sort of buffet, and then it gets cooked. I did mean to follow one of the recipes for the sauce this time, but I, er, got confused and did half of one recipe and half of another. But it was nice! And the dark chocolate and orange mousse was SCRUMMY.

Of course, the restaurant booking wasn't till 9 so that we could all watch Doctor Who first. I LIKED this one! Yay! Must watch it again. But it was scary, and it was cool, and at least a third of the Scottish actors they got in could more or less act. How scary are bald Scottish ninja monks? They're just gonna beat ANYTHING in Top Trumps. Aiieee! The special effects were fantastic - much better than Harry Potter 4, for example. And Torchwood squee!

Oh, that reminds me, I bought a Got Squee? t-shirt. The better to baffle, well, everyone I know, basically. Geek crossover - Got root?, which I always wanted, and the wonderfulness of squeeage. And I got a Bad Wolf mug, too. I nearly got a Chicks Dig Timelords shirt, but I restrained myself. (That was BEFORE I'd seen Tooth and Claw.) Searching for those, I found other things I'm tempted by - a My Other Jacket Is A Browncoat hoodie and, especially, a Let's Do The Time War Again T-shirt. If it wasn't white.

Sorry, that's very long and rambly...

I should have posted before I ordered it, and ordered a bulkload to save on postage, which I could then distribute round the country :D

Yeah, I'm not sure whether to be proud or slightly worried...

Hmmm, I don't think I've ever heard of people eating Springbok. Other buck, definitely, but Springbok are the national animal in SA so I always assumed (probably naively) that people didn't eat them.

On the other hand, I haven't been back since 1993, so who knows what thy're eating there now. Then again, they may have a new national animal, too.

Kublai Khan's has got a bunch of unusual animals - shark, springbok, kangaroo, zebra, and various other things. It's not something that i've seen often over here, either.

There's a hot dog place in Chicago that does interesting meats. So far we've had rattlesnake and ostrich (among a host of more conventional meats). Next time we're in Scotland we'll have to try get to Glasgow to try that place out. It sounds fantastic. :)
