It’s up, y’all. Due this coming Wednesday.

Celebrate by eating some Brillat-Savarin cheese, which is a very rich triple-cream named after one of my personal heroes, Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, who is responsible for the quotation “You are what you eat”, though what he said was actually “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are” (well, he wrote it, and in French it was “Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es”, but you get the idea). He also said “A dessert without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye”. But seriously, you should eat cheese for dessert. Just make sure to take it out an hour or two before you eat it so it gets to room temperature.
