Food, Inc.

Food Inc movie poster

So tonight, the hubby is out. I decided to sit down, have a bottle of wine, and unwind. Checking the Netflix queue I settled upon Food, Inc. to watch, probably because of a quiz on YumSugar today about the same movie.

I was perusing the CB2 catalog, and half-watching this movie, while sipping my wine. Afterall, I’ve read Fast Food Nation and In Defense of Food. Not to mention Fat Land and The End of Overeating. I’ve watched my great-grandparents grow their own food, and I’ve started doing that on my own (yet to harvest, but SOON! at least on the broccoli rabe and Asian greens).

Slowly, I began paying more attention. First it was the chicks on a conveyor belt. Do you know how adorable chicks are? Those cute yellow birds that slide down the waterslide at the state fair? Imagine them on a conveyor belt, being stamped on the forehead. (more…)


Another Sleepless Night

March 30, 2008

Window, Vatican City

Well, not quite sleepless. Sleep just ended promptly with a whack of the neighbors window, which was followed by the usual 4 am noise. God, how I wish they’d get a hotel room.

In other news, I’m routine. Wake up (at 4 am), and again at 6 or 7 am, coffee, noodle around the net, shower, walk dog, drive, work, work, work, drive, walk dog, cook or procure food, eat, noodle around on net more, sleep for a few hours and do the entire thing over again. Punctuated by weekends where work is filled in with cleaning.
