It’s been a little while since I wrote anything here. Been even longer since I made a movie about food. (directions for gnocchi can be found in this post)
About 8 months ago, Sam Newman showed up on our doorstep. A mutual friend had told him that we would be friends. I invited him to stay for dinner, and by our calculations, he has eaten here more than he has not ever since. About a month ago, he moved in. He is a Vermonter. So. The Vermont house has gotten a little Vermont-er, Hill now, the only non native.
Sam is a film maker. He was willing to drive the camera, and that was just enough of a push for me to try and get back on the horse.
I found the editing pretty tiresome. Had to do it in a couple of tries. I realized that last winter, when I was doing these with some regularity, I was pretty high on narcotics most of the time! Nothing to get you through tedium like some narcotics! In general I’ve been feeling a little too antsy to get much done lately. I’m finding that my attention span has shrunk (unbelievable!)
The other day I finally had a first visit with a brain doctor who specializes in people who’ve been through life changing medical events. After an hour or so of getting my recent history she said something to the effect of, “wow.. you’ve been through a lot.. How on earth is it that you’re just NOW coming to me” I guess I’ve been a little busy.
shit. Like I was saying. Attention span. I’m going to go do something else.

Samamidon to Ezra:
I am promptly forwarding this to my lawyer so that he can improve his cooking skills!!
