Oscar speech

Six courses turns out to be a lot, logistically speaking. But everyone was really helpful, and the pacing of the meal ended up being good. Alexis came over way early and helped (and when there was no helping to be done, sneaked away and took a small nap), Joel also did a ton before the party, Alexis helped again in preparing the mushroom and crisp polenta appetizer, Matt and Alexis (I'm going to stop mentioning Alexis now, just assume that she helped the whole time) swooped in and kept everything going for the main course, and Frank pioneered the cheese slicing with fishing line technique and created a lovely cheese plate for everyone while Kathryn and Nathan foraged for glasses and put the beer out.
