Also, I've been thinking of maybe moving the blogging to Tumblr instead: it's a better platform for short smalltalk-y posts or a single (blurry) photo, and I don't write a lot of long essays or reviews anyway. The major downside is only registered users can comment on posts, but you can always allow anonymous questions. On the other hand, I already post most of my photos to flickr anyway, and I sometimes feel just having this blog in addition is a bit redundant (although it's great for following blogs). So I should probably concentrate on one platform instead of trying to *~build a media empire~* or something, but which one? (And they said computers would make our lives easier!)

Speaking of which, here's something that's been bugging me: why are all kitchen sets supposedly made for 11½'' dolls so low? I've passed on nice kitchen sets because I thought they were for smaller scale dolls, before I realized they're all like that. I guess it's nice for Barbie to be able to reach the highest shelves without asking Ken for help, but I still would prefer if they had sacrificed a few extra cm2 of plastic to make them look more realistic. (Not that I've ever really bothered with trying to build a realistic diorama for my dolls to live in - their entire world is basically an IKEA couch in the middle of nowhere, aka the kitchen table. But still!)
Question of the day: I just realized I have no idea what the round parts on top of the stove top that heat up and that you put pots on to cook food are actually called in English. Weird, but true. Google gave me a bunch of technical terms that all seem to refer to one specific type of stove only - is there a good everyday word that covers them all?
