I am an idiot, part 37

For the past few weeks, I have been Unable to Make Cake. This is because my recipe book went missing in the move, and though I've looked everywhere, it's patently not turning up. I have been able to make pretzels, because I know that recipe off by heart, and that's been it.

Well, yesterday I realised that all the recipes I use are typed up on the laptop, and my recipe book is just a paper copy. And it was the work of minutes to plug the laptop into the printer and print out a new copy, even after I'd wrestled with Windows to get the two things talking. Doh. I suck.
