Ben - Academics of the Carribean

I am writing a history essay about pirates! The main primary sources are Alexandre Exquemelin (who will, I hope, help me get to know Captain Morgan better than I do) and Captain Johnson's legendary General History of the Robberies and Murders of the most notorious Pyrates.

In further news shiver me timbers, ye scurvy swabs, etc.

Kit is not bakeoff champion

Some friends and I had a bakeoff competition. I made lemon meringue pie (all or nothing - I had never made this before), drove carefully to work, heard some sliding noises from the backseat. Once @ work, I  found that the curd hadn't set, and I had to scrub bits of it off the backseat. 

Then, after taking the competion pie into the arena: remembered that I had had to brake suddely on the freeway en-route, and I realised was missing a pie. I had no idea where it had ended up. 

Sticky date pudding won, dammit.
