why, hello!

Apparently, my original blog doesn't keep me busy enough. In the Fall of 2010 I started Gastronomical Sovereignty, a space where I explore my ethical culinary adventures highlighting and examining the importance of food sovereignty. That is, our legal, social and ultimately political right to good, whole, healthy, happy food... with wine, of course.

In that space I identified myself as a Feminist, Daughter, Sister, Lover, Friend, Chef, Artist, Activist, Self-Proclaimed Comedian, Organizational & Control Freak, Student, Server, and a pure, unadulterated, excitable, passionate, mad-lover of food and wine. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's different is I'm now taking that on with a close friend... most endearingly offensive friend... Haydn.

Here we hope to share our libation assisted culinary explorations. He's a little crass (albeit clever) and I'm a little sweet (albeit bitter) - and together we hope to take over the world, glass in hand, one dish at a time.... and now, a not so modest introduction...


...First thing is first, I am awesome. Really, that's all that needs to be said. But due to the dog-eat-dog world out there in the so-called blogosphere I should continue. My name to most is Haydn. Some choose to call me less desirable things, but they are soon dealt with. Due to the economy, and the over saturation in the super villain market, I am forced to write blogs and go further into debt... Errr, I mean dive further into the metaphorical sea named school. Although, I'm pretty sure they are synonymous these days. However, one day, like the great phoenix, I will rise from the ashes and take over the world. One blog at a time. One do-gooder at a time. One beer at a time. Actually, scratch that -- let's just focus on the food and beer, because that seems like the more reasonable thing to do. Not to mention, less embarassing. Spandex costumes are not my best friend.

"Tell me about yourself," is probably one of my greatest pet-peeves. Regardless of that, I'm going to bless you with my credentials. As previously stated, I believe I'm awesome. I don't care for walks on the beach because they are kinda lame. Especially when you consider you could be skimboarding, throwing rocks at children, or engaging in meaningless conversations about politics or what band is better: Lady Gaga or literally anything else. I love experimenting with food (not in the American Pie sorta way either). I also enjoy employing unorthodox methods in my culinary crusades. After all, fusion cuisine is highly acceptable now. Besides, lame rules made by the French 400 years ago are for Kristy.

If I could label myself under one word it would be animated. I bet you all thought it was going to be awesome, and I thank you for that. Clearly, you know me well by now if you were assuming that. I chose animated because... well, I'm sure you will figure out why soon enough. That, and I'm just too lazy to type why.
