Things I've Been Thinking About

Why does the grocery store think it is such a fabulous idea to have cookie decorating, face painting and Easter egg hunting on the SATURDAY before a major holiday? Why? The place is already completely jammed and then they want to close down certain aisles for these activities? WTF?

Why do parents put themselves through the agony of standing in a long-ass line at the mall with their kids all dressed up to sit in a giant bunny's lap? I mean, a LONG line. Kids are screaming. Mothers are pissed off. The "bunny" is a giant, terrifying looking FREAKY tall bunny. WTF?

Why do the baby food makers package their wares (even organic ones) in one of the dangerous BPA-containing plastics (number 7)? Why are there only about four choices in glass jars? WTF?

(On a related note: why am I too lazy to make my own babyfood for the second baby? Or even to feed baby anything other than the same two things over and over?)

If I could eat anything right this minute, it would be a giant plate of chicken wings with bleu cheese dressing and celery and a margarita, on the rocks, with salt.

OMGosh! I haven't had chicken wings and blue cheese dressing in AGES. Like, wow, weeks before I dumped my boyfriend of seven years. It was our Monday night ritual. Yummo, btw!

What kind of grocery store are you going to that has all those activities? I have never heard of that before.

And if I could eat anything right now it would be a huge ass bowl of homemade peach cobbler.

Yes, did Gerber not get the memo on plastics?? The commissary choices are limited (shocking, I know) but if you want organic, it comes in plastic only. I debate with myself every time I go down the aisle: glass non-organic vs. plastic organic. What do you pick?

Lisa,
I pick glass jars no matter what. I bought a few in plastic (before I realized) and am slowly using them up, and then never again will I buy plastic....

Luckily I can find organic in jars, but the selection is really limited unless I go to the natural food store!
