What do you call these, then?


I was wondering the same thing. When you order the seafood scallop from the fish & chips shop, what do you ask for?

Or you could entirely remove the ambiguity like the sensible people in Victoria have done, and call them potato cakes.

Fried potato products: Serious Business.

I've never called a potato scallop a potato cake, because in my household they were entirely different things.

Well, it looks like I've got the position of Bootleg Inspector at SMASH (well, not 'the' position, more like 'one' of the bootleg inspector positions).

Definitely looking forward to SMASH now.

But... but... they're not a cake at all! They're an actual, live fish! (well, shellfish to be exact, but they're hardly a cake of fish at all.)

Fish cakes are crumbed fishmeat patties, IIRC. It's been a while.

For yesterday: 7 Years ago I was part of a teem that built a park track and I mixed a large amount of concrete that was used to put in some signage for it.. Yesterday with a different organization I 'closed' the track and took a crowbar to the concrete. well go figure. :p

(it was to make way for a 'new' track)

After having to cancel my planned trip to America early next year, I have been trying to decided where I want to go. Last night my brother & I decided that we are going back to Germany next year to one of the German summer metal festivals. Just have to decided in the next month which one, so we can purchase tickets.

Been helping my sis at her place with her gardens. Suffice to say, I know no longer need to buy any plants for the garden I plan on building over the weekend. So many bulbs - daffodils, agapanthias (sp?), etc.

Plus today we worked in the slight drizzle, which made it easier to get the plants out from the backyard to the front. We also got really muddy ^_^

I had a pretty much flawless day today. Found that I'd about $70 in small change sitting around the house, did grocery shopping and only managed to spend about $30 of that, and Centrelink gave me a $600 advance, which'll mean that I can get my iPad on either Wednesday or Friday.

Managed to get a USB digital television stick mostly working after someone patched the source code for it to work under Linux 3.0-rcX and connecting it to the outside (pre-digital) antenna.

Well, I'm feeling a lot better now. Two kinds of antibiotics and plenty of rest have done me a lot of good. At this rate, I'll be back at work next week.

Completed a lot of little odd jobs this weekend that I had put off for the last month or so, as well as just finishing submitting my tax.

Also notice the post before this one was my 666th post Twisted Evil

Had an impromptu night out last night.
I had planned on staying in and not doing much since I was still feeling it a bit from the night before. But at about 11:45pm my mates came around and dragged me out. Which resulted in a very fun night/early morning fill with many, many shots.
Didnít get home till 6am. Not a bad night considering I was in bed watching TV at 10pm. Laughing

I was able to do a whole bunch of chores, do some shopping and even get a good amount of sleep today. So, my highlight would be feeling really relaxed for once, rather than having that nagging feeling that says 'you have to do the dishes some time, bro.'
