Look, some more graffiti.

I made this for Michael today.

Look, a map.

Ollie and I are going away on Friday night. I'm about 7.5/10 excited.

Here's the route:

Day 1: Travelodge in Lille
Day 2: Camping by the Lake Leman near the Swiss border.
Day 3 & 4: Cinque Terre near Genoa. It's a cluster of five villages on the coast and a National Park which is part of the Unesco's World Heritage.
Day 5 - 12: A house somewhere north-east of Rome
Day 13: Bologna for some Bolognese
Day 14-17: Venice for some hot chocolate, contemporary art and birthday celebrations.

And here's a map, if you're interested:

Look, some graffiti.

I really like the Graffiti application on Facebook. Here are a few drawings I made. The last one is a drawing of Lily Allen.

Look, a funny cake.

I made this cake for my friend Tina. She loved it. I think she was drunk.

Megarich Chocolate Cake

This is what you need:

100g dark cooking chocolate
100g Butter
4 eggs
75g sifted plain flour
And more stuff to make it look pretty

This is how you make it:

Melt the chocolate and the butter in a pan. On the side, mix the egg yolks with the sugar. Beat the egg whites. Mix the melted chocolate and the sugary egg yolks together. Add the plain flour and fold in the beaten egg whites. Stick it all in a tin and cook at 180ยบ for about half an hour. May take longer, may not. Keep checking with a skewer. People say that the cake's done when the skewer comes out clean but I like my cake a little bit undercooked so take it out of the oven just before that.
To make it pretty, you can melt some more chocolate, take it off the heat and add a bit of double cream until it's nice and smooth and spreadable. Stick it on top of your cake and make it look fancy with a few nuts. Hazelnuts do the job. Or you can go mental with hundreds and thousands, smarties, whipped cream, chocolate shavings, glitter and royal icing but your guests will think you're trying too hard and that's the last thing you want when you're trying to impress.

Hey presto, everyone thinks you're the man.
