My name is Alexander Boswell I live in Vancouver, Canada. For the past four years or so I have been employed as a draftsman. Not something I ever envisioned myself as doing, but it pays the bills and I get to work at home, so I really can't complain. My free time is taken up by drawing, photography, caffine, programming, and copious amounts of hanging around watching paint dry.
I can never think of anything to write about myself, so instead, I'm going to write about pancakes. Pancakes are a small, round cakes that are commonly eaten throughout Europe and North America. They are typically a breakfast food in the United States and Canada and if you ask me, they're way better than cereal ever was. One may eat their pancakes with jam, butter, maple syrup, random other things, or some combination thereof. I always preferred maple syrup combined with butter, but jam's okay too. Incidentally, Canada is the worlds largest producer of maple syrup. It's apparently the largest consumer of it as well, as the stuff is expensive and hard to find in contries on the other side of various oceans which surround North America.
There are actually several different cakes which call themselves "pancakes". Those made without baking soda generally suck. Your best bet would be to pretend you're not hungery, unless the person offering them to you is the Queen or something. It is rumored that magical pancakes can be made if you steal Fidel Castro's cap and mix the batter in it. It is unknown if baking soda is required to make such cakes or not.
In summary, I think that there should be Nobel Prize related to pancakes or at least for baked goods in general.
