i'm not exactly sure why, but i have this kind of sickness where i really always need to be first, like the first one to recognize that something is cool, or that something is trendy, or or its way out or something. it's this ugly, competitive thing, and i've got to say that having a blog doesn't exactly help.
cupcakes are cool now, so i feel like i need to stop liking them.
heck, food and food writing are cool now, so i feel like i need to stop liking them. but i kind of can't, since it's my job to like them. so, i decide to do the next best thing and be as simple as possible about all of it. i guess that's why the kind of food we make at work fits.--i'm all about distilling things down to their very essences, and not in the ferran adria el bulli sort of way.
i guess i even feel the same way about books, and writing and poetry. the essence is the thing. the quintessence. i kind of can't stand bells and whistles.
