"The supper was like most suppers in Paris: silence at first, then a confused babble in which no one can make themselves heard, followed by an exchange of largely insipid witticisms, false news, pointless argument, a little politics and a quantity of slander; there was even some talk of the latest books." - page 63 of Candide by Voltaire (translated by Theo Cuffe)

Here's where you can get some extracurricular Andy. Food photos will likely be restricted to Soup Joumou. Pictures of me with my beautiful baby girl will be plentiful. Musings, mythology, blogs, museums,travel, Hip-Hop, Konpa, books, comic books, history, technology, and occasionally excessive displays of full-frontal geekitude are all part of the ride.
