Happy Paczki Day 2014! Honestly, I don’t think I can say it any better than I did last year, in my prayer for Fat Tuesday, so I won’t.
But do press this, my annual tradition of gleeful glee. (Is the polka music no longer working? Egads!)
I owe you a serious update. There’s a lot going on. But with my main laptop in the shop for at least a week with almost all my data, a half-working backup laptop that turns off when it decides it is tired of working, and a loaner from school — all in Week 9 — I’m a little scattered.
But in case you’re curious in the interim: I’ve been off milking goats at a farm stay; I’m co-curating a Special Collections exhibit on the past 500 years or so of science in the kitchen using rare books at the Knight Library; I just gave a keynote talk on 100 years of science in food to 450 captive souls at Pleasant Hill High School; I’m teaching two great food studies classes next term open to all UO students (see the teaser video for COLT 231 here); and I now have more egg recipes than a chicken.
Yes. More soon.
