Well, faithful and vast readership, this is my last entry before the holiday season takes over our lives, stealing us from the work we love and casting us into the arms of family and friends. Many of you may anticipate this time with a thrill quivering in your chest. For me though, I'd rather be working. I'd rather be fueling your collective noggin with data, research, ideas and general inspiration. Instead, my energy will be wasted at my Auntie Janeane's condo, sipping fruit punch and tearing at a dry pork chop. She'll be in bed by 7:30 p.m., and I will be left to channel surf on her analog television. And then, undoubtedly, my childhood friend and current neighbor Sherwood Day, will call with questions of my whereabouts and plans for returning home so that I can share in the tray of fudge his grandmother prepared for him.

It's a nice gesture, but please, I'd rather stand in a downpour under a bed sheet.

Truly, I'd rather discuss cheeses, sauces and bases with you. So let's do it.
