Food

Posted on 2006.06.13 at 17:10
I am barefoot at the moment, in my Emily The Strange black skirt with red cat detail on back pocket, and my KISS tee shirt, and my watch, which my parents gave me last year and which has a light-up feature in blue that fades away. I mention this only to dismiss it, and to say that I am in the middle of making a hat that reads "This Is My Brain On Ska" across the side. It's deck.

Tomorrow I am driving into Chicago to go to the Green City market, a fresh air market where the crepes are reputed to be terrific. I have to go and see-it's not often that the Midwest meets a crepe that is better-tasting than office paper. Also, there's a Slow Food meeting there, and I am a Slow Food ambassador, so I think I will check it out. Food is nurturing, not only to the human soul, but to the human spirit. Tofu may be healthy to the body, like mashed potatoes, but they have distinctly different psychological effects. The tofu makes one feel miserly, health-foody, and bland. The mashed potatoes are warm and comforting, distinctly American, and merely serve to convey, so to speak, salt and butter. 

The problem with the Glycemic Index is that people eat foods in different combinations. Atkins is unhealthy, and the food pyramid is dumb.

I like your thoughts on food. Only problem is my soul apparently likes tofu though I understand why you describe it the way you do. If it isn't prepared properly or if it is bad tofu it does give off that feel.

How about an update O Great One? XD

btw, how was camp? Fun? Campy? Lots of smelly people? Five-minute showers? Too much walking?

Good, you must've had fun then.

Eat your weetabix!
