I'm waiting up for my flan to finish baking, after which it will need to cool, after which I will finally be able to go to bed, after which I will get up and work, after which I will buy ice cream on my way to dinner because I'm pretty sure this flan is going to be a disaster.
Things I will be avoiding in the future: making desserts that require a water bath, melting sugar to make caramel, and touching melted sugar with my fingertip to see if it's hot.
Things I do recommend: the yachtsman, the Neuhaus chocolates he brought me from DC:
In other news, the next person to call my puppy a wiener dog is gonna get pistol whipped. The pistol whipping may be metaphorical, but it will smart nonetheless:
Person in park: Hey, is that a wiener dog?
Me, brandishing metaphorical pistol: YOU'RE A WIENER DOG!
You've been warned.
