After a certain amount of time, the dishes did get done.
In other news, someone on LiveJournal has hotlinked to a different version of A sparrow at Fidel's which I originally took and posted on 25/11/2007. That's just bizarre. Someone's also hotlinked to my most recent orchid pic from tagged.com, which looks like a hotbed of spam, tasteless personals and other assorted ick. People, please, if you're going to blatantly nick something, why don't you at least nick the good photos?
