two types of blue flame

I always chuckle on the motorbike ride to work each morning. We pass a block pf apartments called Blue Flame. I wonder if that is what the inhabitants spend their late nights doing - sort've Jack Black style .... does the place stink but light up all evening? If you don't know what I'm talking about... check this link. It just makes me smile.

I just made myself some soft boiled eggs. We have a sweet little kitchen - a typical old-styled Italian kitchen as Pascal put it... a narrow room with cupboards reaching high to the ceiling, not a lot of counter space but enough for our simple needs. At the end under the window is the two-burner gas stove. This device is a bit of a challenge for me. I'm not too adept at lighting it and that makes Gagan chuckle as I turn it on and off and on and off so as not to gas myself into a high. I'm getting better :) Two clicks of the mechanical lighter thingamejig and I was blue-flaming away today!
