Warning: Getting up at 5:00am on a Sunday may affect mental alertness and/or coordination. If affected, do not drive a motor vehicle or operate machinery.
This is a self portrait I took sometime around 6:00am this past Sunday morning. Though the cafe doesn't open until 8am during the weekends, I like to get there early to make sure that most of our daily prep is finished by opening. The goggles I am so proudly wearing are my latest attempt to protect the eyes while slicing onions. They seem to do the trick, and simultaneously succeed in freaking out passerbys who happen to glance in and see me cooking.
