They're here!

Last night I finally received my long awaited letterpress business cards from Dolce Press. I knew they were going to be thick, but I didn't realize just how thick 220lb paper was! Crikeys. Hopefully that means no one will want to throw these away or crumple them into their pockets. It would take some real effort to crumple these guys.

I should also never be a prop stylist. This was very hard to make look presentable in a tiny and dark apartment. I improvised as best as I could with a wee bit of evening light left, and maybe somewhat succeeded because I showed some pictures to Jimmy and he was like, "Whoa where did you take these?" (meaning he didn't recognize his apartment!).

Well, now this means I really need to get cracking on my website, because if you've been to it, you'll notice that placeholder has been there for an inexcusably long time now. Ah!

On the menu tonight is Hotel Griffou's multi-course ramp dinner and tomorrow, Sushi Yasuda. Should be a good time!
