Happy Holidays! Really.

Yet another Emersonian Soapbox, not with any art, though, for some reason. This one is complete with a (magazine) typo so graciously pointed out by a cranky commenter; if anyone else cares to answer him, please feel free. Anyway, I believe anyone who ever spent more than two days working retail will appreciate Retail Retaliation.

Food Blog (Because It Hasn't Already Been Done to Death)

I have started a food blog today under the pseudonym Genavieve Laloue. Please come visit and give me some business! I hope to post daily updates about the trials and tribulations of eating in New York. Seriously.

Hope everyone is well.

Coupling (from a "couple" weeks ago - ha!)

Hey guys,

Wanted to let y'all know that a column of mine ran in Coupling two weeks ago. My grandmother bought six copies. Awesome.

Here's the link.

Good column to check out

This is not a news item, but a column I enjoyed that ran recently in the Wash. Post by Gene Weingarten. "Something about Harry: Why Old Dogs are the Best Dogs" . Hope you enjoy it. -- Jaweed

National Geographic Traveler, Nov/Dec issue

I have a column in the new issue of Traveler on page 20. It was chosen by the blogger/editor of the Intelligent Travel blog and print section. "A Baptism Over Flame," about the Argentine asado, is excerpted from a longer verision I wrote in Column Writing a couple of years ago.

Upon seeing it, people keep asking me, "When were you in Argentina?" as if I had disappeared unannounced for a week or two without them noticing. But that's what's cool about travel writing; if the experience sticks, it could have happened a day ago or twenty years ago. In my case, the beef was transformative.
