A Most Successful Day

For the following reasons:

  1. Self succeeded in seeing “Food, Inc.” (Thumbs up! Only, self doesn’t know if she can eat a chicken ever again — not unless it is “certified organic” and costs $4.99/ lb.!  And, um, Michael Pollan is quite attractive, which definitely contributes to the eye candy factor. And he lives in a house with nice, pale yellow walls. Other things self learned while watching this movie: 1) The average American supermarket carries 47,000 items, and 2) Three of her favorite snack foods — Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Pringle’s, and Goldfish Crackers — contain “genetically modified” substances.
  2. Self had a chance to drop by Classico Gelato before the movie! And she splurged on a “regular” rather than a “small”! And she had two flavors: creme brulee and peanut butter cioccolato!
  3. And Johnson’s Tree Service came over today and serviced our trees! And they spent four hours and created piles and piles of rubbish and charged us $900! In the course of the afternoon, self learned that orange tree was killed by a fungus, that apple tree is being attacked by same fungus, that loquat at one time had termites but seems to have survived the experience, that one tree over by the corner of the yard was dead, and that half the branches of the tallest tree in the backyard had no leaves!  But, self was so happy to learn that she had no part in killing orange tree  —  in other words, that its demise was not due to (her) under or over-watering!  What a relief to be able to jettison all that guilt!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
