fun fact for today

Many grad students become excellent cooks.

It's true. Cooking is a pretty easy procrastination technique to rationalize--"well, I have to eat anyway, so I might as well make something good." Before you know it, you're throwing dinner parties for your twenty closest friends.

Or so I've heard. I wouldn't know anything about procrastination myself.

It's funny, though. Some procrastinators go so far as to start blogs and record CDs in their effort to avoid their stated goals. Could you imagine?

Now, should I put chocolate chips in this banana bread, or would that be overkill since it's already got walnuts and coconut?

Chocolate chips would be overkill, I think. A truly righteous banana bread is a paean to understatement. It should sort of sneek up on you. "boo", it says, not "BOO!"

If it were me, I'd probably just eat the chocolate chips straight out of the bag while the bread was in the oven.
