Zploj

Zploj Ingredients By Simon JeppsHere is an old timer recipe of mine which has served its dues for many years.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of Baked Beans
  • 1 can of Chicken Korma
  • 3 large free range eggs

Cook the Baked Beans and Chicken Korma in separate pots until they are all sloppy and ready. This takes 5-10 minutes.

Be sure to wet the empty Korma can with some water and to swoosh it around inside. Do this with your hand cupped over the top of the can for a thorough swoosh.

This is important in order to retrieve left over residue and to provide the Korma with some moist sauciness.

Finally towards the end, get three Eggs frying in a saucepan, best fried in butter. Traditionally the Eggs should be sunnyside up and somewhat runny.

To serve, basically “zploj” the cooked inventory onto your plate, but in separate places so you can pick and taste the different flavours as you “mange”.

Best served with a side helping of fresh buttered bread and Coca-Cola.

I hope you enjoy!

The Squire Of Celtainia

Squire Of CeltainiaCornissia, like the other Celtic countries of these lands, would be a dear Republic. That is to say, a country without a Monarchy or King and Queen.

A republic is a form of government in which the country is considered a “public matter”, its laws decided by a process of democracy and is not ever to be the private property of an unelected or hereditory ruler. A republic is thus the opposing form of government to a monarchy and has therefore no monarch as head of state.

The problem with “Britain” is that it has been conditioned for centuries to admire the regular parading of an authoritative figure dressed in gold and rubies, yet who has no say in political matters only the declaration of war… and even though this tradition makes absolutely no democratic sense.

Jengaagain

Jengaagain By Simon Jepps
Jengaagain ~ The next evolution of Jenga
You thought Jenga was cool… now YllwChlk brings you Jengaagain!

After playing Jenga for many years I did nevertheless become rather tired of its limitations in design.

Oh I agree that its purpose is to bring a minimalistic forte of recreational entertainment into the home… but that was just it, the game was too basic.

Eventually, following a small tantrum involving a swooping arm and a very disappointed stuffed monkey on the other side of the room, I started about designing the next evolution of the game Jenga.

I experimented with many different kinds of constructions and building algorithms, even multiple towers and installations.

Yet in the end, I believe quite strongly, to have hit the jackpot.

So here it is… Jengaagain.
