Is there a correct size for a scone? I ask because I had a scone this morning which was larger than my hand. Not just my palm, my entire hand. This strikes me as excessive. But perhaps it isn't, perhaps that's a normal size for a scone, perhaps they are a gargantuan breed of the dough world and I didn't recognise it simply because I've only ever eaten pygmy scones.1
I am decades behind on my wordcount. I would blame HP7 except it only took one day out and I'm behind by more than that. Stuff it, let's blame HP7 anyway. Give me time, I'm sure I can concoct a reason why my tardiness is directly related to the potterverse. Or something.
In related news, I discovered Maureen McHugh's novel process the other day and, after careful consideration, I think I am sliding down from This is going to take some work to This sucks. And it's boring. Oh dear. Send reinforcements, preferably of the junk food variety. I'm going in.
- For the record, it wasn't a very nice scone. I think I prefer the pygmy variety. You get a nicer distribution of jam/honey and cream to crumbly scone. And they're not as dry. [↩]
