Hehe. Thank you, thank you. I'd like to thank my fellow evolters, the 
academy, and well, that's about it.

She left Pyra a long while back, didn't she?

 From her latest entry on the site, I don't think she's "chef" quite yet. 
 From the sounds of it (peeling shrimp for seven hours), she's probably a 
"kitchen assistant". But there's hope. ;)

I have it easier. I can pick when to go to work, what to make, whom to 
shout at, etc. :p

All that, but no salary...

(At least till I start making money. Lucky I get free food.)

>his restraunt actually has a website and a fine one at that.

Why, I'm positively blushing now. I enjoy cooking, and I enjoy writing. My 
web site allows me to do both in a fun package.

Which reminds me...

I wrote a two part article on starting a restaurant for one of India's 
largest portals. The editor fucked up my words a bit with her own "style", 
but it survived without too many injuries. Also got me a flood of email and 
web site traffic. Check it out:
