…I submit to you a gem from the vault, a veritable blast from the past, written in my own voice, but 3 years younger.
From the now-defunct Kitchen Jouissance* blog, I bring you A Year Without a Kitchen. (This post is the set-up for tomorrow’s continuation of my story…It also contains links to my students’ performances! They really were an incredible bunch.)
*Kitchen Jouissance was the baking blog I started while a student at UF. The “Jouissance” of the title was a reference to my senior thesis, which discussed Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing from the perspective of Lacanian psychology. In other words, really useful stuff. Jouissance, incidentally, basically means “enjoyment,” but in the world of literary and psychological criticism, it has sexual connotations. In case you were curious.
