bottled water debate

1 Comment

Everyone is complaining about how tired they are of hearing about the election/s.  I will leave that alone (for now) and complain about how tired I am of hearing about the evils of bottled water.

 

BIG BOTTLES
We buy distilled water for our water cooler because it tastes good.  I drink a lot of water.  Drinking water is healthy.  I wouldn’t want to drink it if it tasted like tap water.
I know that we are fortunate to have tap water that is safe to drink.  I am thankful.  I would drink it if I had to, but I sure wouldn’t be drinking as much water as I do now.

SMALL BOTTLES
Since we do use the cooler bottles (which are re-used so aren’t as hard on the environment), we don’t buy cases and cases of the individual water bottles to drink at home.  We fill reusable bottles to take out with us.

BUT, don’t take away the individual bottles of water!
At a vending machine or fast foodmart, I am so happy to be able to buy a bottle of water rather than having to choose between sugary & chemicalicious pop and iced tea.
So in your efforts to prevent the waste of plastic, don’t ban my option to buy a bottle of water  until you also ban the selling of pop and juices in bottles.  Then we can talk.

DIM SUM = DELICIOUS

We had dim sum for the first time today.  Delicious!
And wow, very filling!
Also very meaty!  I don’t think there was a vegetable in sight.

Kinetic Swing had a practice this morning, then we went out together, using the money we made dancing at the Fringe Festival in the summer.  We don’t eat together often enough.
It was a bit chaotic – all the food on carts being offered all the time, and of course I didn’t know what most of it was.
Anyway, now I want more dim sum!

LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING

In August, we dogsat for two weeks.  Scully came and lived with us and she was such a sweetie.  A great older gal!  She would be nearly the ideal dog except for her hair.  I’d never seen anything like it.  She would shed and shed and shed.  I’d take her out to the back yard and comb three guinea pigs’ worth of hair off her, and then just running my hand over her back would still release more hair.  This was in August, mind you, not the typical spring shedding season.  The amount of hair hovering all over our floors near enough drove me crazy.  I honestly do not understand why these kinds of dogs still exist.  Why keep breeding them?  Who would want a hair factory as an indoor pet?

So, this is what the sweet dog looked like:2008 08 16 Scully0006

But this is how she showed up on camera, like a snarling danger-to-small-children.  Ha ha ha ha ha!
