Maybe I Could Embroider His Apron

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

If you want to knit a sweater to give to your beloved by Christmas, then you should start very soon. But beware The Sweater Curse!

Also, last night I was watching an early Good Eats, where Alton Brown stuttered and looked to be seventeen, so open and vulnerable. I realized that Alton Brown is a food deity. It comforts me to pray to Alton and think that he is watching over my triumphs and mishaps, foodwise and otherwise. As Leonard says, he "looked upon it and saw that it was ... Good Eats."
