Global brownies

My blogging clearly took a hit as the last month of graduate school saw me constantly chained to paper-writing, editing, and re-writing. Then my family came out for graduation, which passed by in a surreal blur of blue robes and picture-taking. Now, as I settle in to unemployment, I've got to admit that the ole noggin' seems to have taken a hit for the worst. Someone better find me a job soon before I lose all that intellectual nerdspeak that I've been accumulating over the past two years.

In the meantime, I'll let someone else make the insightful statements for me:

"The spiced Black Bean Brownies may not be traditionally Mexican, but since I’m an American eating in a Mexican restaurant in Paris where the chef is Peruvian and the brownie-maker is British, just take a bite and I’m sure you’ll agree that these brownies are a very compelling argument for globalization."
