*pause*

Alas, dear readers! I must leave you for the next fortnight or so because I

1. have 360 first year tests to mark (welcome to university lecturing in the developing world!),

2. must fill in about a gazillion job applications because postdocs don’t last forever (*sniff*),

3. need to finish revising an article before I bump into the journal’s editor at a conference,

4. have a seminar paper to write,

5. am moving. Hurrah! (BUT I HAVE SO MUCH TO PACK.)

Oh God. *weeps tears of anxiety*

But there’ll still be food links and some pseudery. And if you should pine for a spot of in-depth food contemplation, I point you in the direction of September’s Observer Food Monthly (and particularly this interview with Björk – I have a bit of thing about Björk – and Jay Rayner’s account of cooking with René Redzepi), and The Nation‘s special food edition. Frances Moore Lappé’s article on the food movement is an absolute must-read, as is this interview with Olivier de Schutter on the right to food.

I also leave you with this picture from Things Organised Neatly. I find this website wonderfully calming.

Wish me luck!
