Food for Thought

Good morning, kittens!
This morning, as I munched on my delicious Asian pear ($0.89*  each at Trader Joe's), I read an article/blogpost/thing on the WaPoDotCom, "The Starvation of America's Middle Class," which led me over to the USDA's Food Desert Locator. Fascinating.  I had no idea about the inaccessibility of food to a great number of people, even in the booming megalopolitan*** DC Metro Area. It made me want to eat.
So I gnawed on my Asian pear and thought about apples ... because in a totally random early morning textual conversation w/ M, we were chatting about disco music.
And pancakes.
and he sent me this video.
I think I should go to the Farmer's Market this weekend.
And, that's pretty much been my morning.  Last night, I ate a veggie burger and watched "Red."  It was pretty cute (the movie, not the veggie burger ... although, I guess, as far as veggie burgers go on the attractiveness scale, this particular veggie burger was not bad looking).
Have a great day!
*Whatever happened to the "cents" symbol?**
**Not entirely unrelated, but doesn't it annoy you when people write "200$" instead of "$200"?
***Not that the DC Metro Area is an actual megalopolis, but how often does one get to use the adjectival form of the word?  Not. Very. Often.


  1. I'm still trying to figure out how to pronounce 'megalopolitan'....

    -Dr. Liz (who probably SHOULD know how to pronounce it, but doesn't) and not Fiona the dog (who isn't into multi-syllabic words)

  2. Now I want french toast....

  3. i don't know why the cent sign was left off in the conversion from typewriter keys to computer keyboards but i mentioned some time ago on facebook that i missed them.

    i sometimes put the $ after the numbers when i forget it (or typo it) and don't want to use the backspace or arrow keys because i'm too lazy.
