People wonder, often aloud, why I'm so darn weird. Well, my parents were hippies, but not the kind who grew up in New York and decided to move to the country to escape their upbringing.

We grew a huge garden, had honey bees, raised beef cattle, milked a goat or a cow, raised our own beef and pork, that sort of thing.
You know how sometimes you think you're going to be awesome and something, you get started, and BOOM! You are so not awesome at it. Take, for example, food photography. I make all this food that apparently tastes pretty good, since people will pay money to eat it. And so I think, hey, I'll snap some pictures of it and put it up on the internet and even MORE people will want to buy it. But my snaps are terrible. Like really bad.
We're all focused on trying to get people to order their Christmas gifts, and between putting up decorations and answering the phone to tell people when the last possible minute that they can order their gift baskets is, we've been kind of busy.

Hey, all you people who ask me for free stuff all year long, now's your chance! Three times a year we completely tear this restaurant apart and clean things that normal people don't even know exist. If you show up to help, we'll feed you anything in here that you want, all day long.
