I eat my peas with honey, I've done it all my life. It makes the peas taste funny but it keeps them on the knife.

Reminds me of when the family sent me to the doctor's because I like sausages...

...the doctor said he liked sausages too...

...but he turned a little pale when I invited him back home to see my collection...

...I've got thousands, all pinned in cases, with hand-written tags...

I occasionally wear the monocle I wear in my avatar image with regular garb. I also have a tendency to use outdated language in everyday conversation.

Brilliant! Mashed-potato frosting, no doubt?

I'm less clear on what the glaze might be, unless it's a heavily-reduced demi-glace?

For eccentric cookery, you should investigate Bob "Surreal Gourmet" Blumer, notable for pound-cake "french fries" with raspberry coulis "katsup" and for making bacon & eggs, sunny-side up out of meringue, canned apricots and two-tone chocolate.

Most odd.  I saw the picture first and thought 'that looks a nice cake'.  Then I noticed it's made of meat and yet still think it looks appetizing.  Usually I'm quite a finicky eater.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Ketchup was my first thought, but it seemed a little more translucent than I would have expected.

On the other hand, my mother does a ketchup-based meatloaf glaze that isn't too far off what's pictured.

I only considered yesterday, but it strikes me as odd how often I like to go out for a ramble, usually twice or thrice a week.  It lets me clear my head for some reason.  If I didn't I'd probably talk to myself a lot more than I already do.

My dear Mr. Harrison, there is absolutely nothing wrong in talking to oneself. Even the occasional rousing argument is not in the least amiss.

Should one come to blows, however, it is quite another matter...

Why anyone would want to be considered "normal" is beyond me... especially when I see what "normal" people are like.

anyone wanting to stand out in a victorian/steam-powered manor.


Well, Thistlewaite Hall...

...is a Victorian manor, and is for the most part steam-powered, what with the stationary engine powering the new-fangled Edison bulbs, though there are still a few gas-lamps around here and there. When it comes to standing out, however, mostly I stand out in the yard.

Indeed, Thistlewaite Manor is quite lovely!

As far as eccentricity is concerned, a friend and I have been known, in public, to greet one another and carry on conversations comprised only of phrases plucked from historical church services. Singing the appropriate bits and including all of the liturgical "dance steps", as it were.

The looks one gets for singing the Magnificat in a chemist's shop - you'd think people had never heard it before!

I ain't eccentric, I just like the thread.

A4 or B5 size, and 0.05 or 20,000 volt?  I'd loan you my charger, but the local power station weren't too happy last time I used it and blew the grid for 500 square miles  Roll Eyes
