It’s been a long time since my last entry. Job has been nuts, haven’t been baking (successfully, or at least creatively) very much, felt a little schmoopy gloopy about the whole food blog thing, and realized that since the rules about what constitutes a fromage worthy of homaging were already pretty loose I might as well extend the boundaries of “fromage” to include non-food-related items. Fromage as a concept, as it were (a prof once said mid-lecture “…as it were – wait. As it were WHAT?! Don’t let me ever say that again.”). So here it goes again, with less pressure and rigidity and, hopefully, greater regularity.

My homage today is brief but heartfelt. In this remote corner of cyberspace it’s the merest whisper but it's a John Turturro "do not seek the treasure!"-style whisper. I worked on a movie called Winter’s Bone that yesterday was awarded both the Screenwriting and Grand Jury prizes at Sundance. I feel profoundly lucky and very proud to have had anything to do with this project and would just like to say thank you thank you thank you to everything that aligned to make it possible and a million congratulations to everyone involved.

And thanks to mom for the flowers.

thanks mama
