hey hello, is there anyone here?

It's mercifully easier to end my unscheduled blog-hiatus with a brief announcement rather than an epic post about what I've been up to during the past six months. So, I'm inviting you to a bake sale.

It's this Saturday at Hanger Bar (3rd Street between Avenues B and C) from 1 pm until 7. I will be contributing herb focaccia and maybe some cookies too, if I can really get my shit together. If you can't make it to 3rd and B, go to and see if there's a Hungry For Change bake sale in your neighborhood.


  1. OOH! I have been waiting and waiting for you to come back! So glad your hiatus is over- the bake sale sounds fantastic and is for a great cause. Can't wait to see what you come up with next...

  2. Welcome back. You've been missed.

  3. So, what is you opinion of Obama now? Is he still a good candidate to vote for?

  4. Oh man, this is a very complicated question to answer in a little comments box! I've been very disappointed with a lot of things he's done but I'll vote for him again because the prospect of a Romney presidency appalls me. I'm not one of those people who buys the argument that it's all the same and the thing to do if one feels that way is not vote at all. On an academic level that makes a bit of sense to me but in real life it does not. There isn't anyone who could convince me, for example, that Al Gore would've been equally as likely to go to war with Iraq as Bush was. And there isn't anyone who could convince me now that living with a Romney administration would be shitty in pretty much all the same ways more of the Obama administration could be. I think it would be way, way, way more upsetting to me than any further disappointments from Obama.
