Flaky can be a good thing.

Sunburns, dandruff and wishy washy people can all be annoying, but when you are faced with a bad flake, you might as well get a good flake.

Flakes are chocolate bars made by Cadbury UK. When I say chocolate bars, I hardly mean your daily run of the mill chocolate bar. Flakes are made with the utmost care and should be eaten thus so.
Flakes were discovered in the 1920's and their goodness has only evolved into perfection from there. They were around in the UK,and Ireland since forever, and have just recently (2008) been discovered lurking around in Canadian stores.

You feel the aura of a Flake the second you open the wrapping. There is no seal so to speak of as if to let the freshness intermingle with the atmosphere and let it grow in flavour. When you take it out of the package you can instantly see the workmanship that went into making a Flake flakey. Breaking or biting a piece of is like touching heaven itself, and when it melts in your mouth surely you reach a bliss no other can bring you to.

Flakes come in all different shapes and sizes, they have been spotted in easter egg sizes, and various flavours like Flake Snow - White Flake Chocolate, Orange Flake - Orange flavoured Flake (available only in South Africa).

If you're not already in a country where flakes are widespread, it is highly recommended that you move to one where they are accessible in the wild.

Being a lurker.

If you're ever outside my window, here are some things you might end up doing.

Smoke some.
Like the dudes in the picture. It is of course not something I condone, but hey why not. Whip out that Hookah/Bong at 4 in the afternoon in a public place.

Walk your laundry.
Living in a dorm means you need to walk your laundry to the laundry room. Who doesn't love clean clothes?

Tightrope walk.
We have trees, we have rope, and we have feet.

Please don't, but if you must do it with beer bottles.

Honk at the geese.
They honk at you, why not honk back.

If you're lucky you may catch a free BBQ out in the courtyard.

Customize a cake

Like baking, but not the best at it? What I like to do is customize a cake! Now this can be done with many things, cakes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins etc...

What you need is a cake mix, and customizer. Customizer can be anything (edible of course)
I prefer to add cinnamon powder, raisins, pecans to a marble cake mix. Top that off with melted chocolate chips mixed with a small amount of melted butter, and sprinkle with any sprinklies you like!

A blog and a list

If you ever asked yourself what are some things you can do on a staircase, you're not alone.

Start a new blog!
Seriously, Wi-Fi + Laptop + Stairs = Blog

Walk down the stairs
Why would you be on a staircase if you weren't going somewhere right?

Walk up the stairs
You had to have walked down those if you're trying to get back up them now.

Bike down the stairs
As nike says, just do it.

Ignore the stairs all together
I don't see them, they won't see me
