t says:  Every now and then, our friends will poke fun at me for our blog’s rather silly cast of characters.  I laugh, too, because to be honest, I’m not really sure why we even have “the cast”.  I can’t say that we’re really “anonymous”, as it’s pretty easy to track down who we are in real life with some smart googleage.  Furthermore, most of the cast knows each other, so it may actually be easier using people’s real names to avoid confusion.  Finally, usage of the initials can often lead to confusion; for instance, I should have thought about whether letting one of our friends be “a” was the smartest idea (it wasn’t … but that’s ok – a’s worth it).

Along the same lines, I’m sometimes asked, “well, how do you pick people to become cast members?”  (Actually, that’s not true – friends are more often asking, “yea – so – is there any way I could not be mentioned on your blog? Thanks.”)  And while there’s no real rhyme or reason behind any of it, we can say that there is at least one surefire way to wind up on our blog (whether you like it or not):

cook for us.

homemade linzer tarts

That’s right – welcome to our newest cast member bw.  First – my apologies to him for the above super-crappy photo of his cookies – I put them in my messenger bag and they got a little smooshed.  Second – g and I need to express our sincerest appreciation for these cookies … because they kick some serious ass.  Seriously.  Totes seriously.  (n.b. the usage of the word “totes” is primarily to poke fun at people who actually use “totes” in their daily conversation …)  It’s easy to just smile and nod when someone says, “oh, I like to bake” … but holy bejesus can bw bake!  I can’t wait to see what other kinds of confections he has up his sleeve …

So, bw, welcome to the cast!  It’s a meaningless honor (I dare you to put in on your CV) … but one that we hope you will bear courageously and faithfully … as you make us more cookies …
