I’m baking today. It’s a bank holiday, and tomorrow there is a three-hour-long academic meeting. Way back when, I promised my colleagues that if they distrubuted my survey request to all of their former students, I would bake them cookies for this meeting. I don’t know whether they have done that, but since then I’ve also had to deal with the chaos of getting people to double-mark sixty project modules, and while it is part of everyone’s job, I do feel like I’ve been asking favours of people, so I figured I’d bake cookies. These are hamentashcen, which I love, although filled with plum jam, not poppyseeds, this time.
