I really let myself get fooled two weeks ago. In a way that I’m sure Organic Needle will understand! You’ll see what I mean in this week’s tally. All new plastic again this week:
- 1 ZRNet Internet card. I mentioned this one in my post about plastic gift cards. The company has confirmed that this card is not reloadable or recyclable (being a mix of plastic and paper). *Sigh* I won’t be using the Internet at The Coffee Roastery on Union Street again.
- Plastic wrap from a Financial West Group mailing. Yet more plastic from this group. Sending it all back before had no effect, apparently.
- 1 inner cheese wrapper lining from a block of Trader Joe’s Swiss raw milk cave aged Gruyere. The wrapper looked like paper, I swear. In fact, it was paper — on the outside. Secretly, I knew there would be plastic inside. How could there not be? But I decided to risk it, purely for research purposes, of course, so you guys would not be similarly fooled. And the truth is, the cheese was awesome. I enjoyed every bite. Sharp and nutty and umami! It’s hard not to do it again.
Well, I’m off… to the dentist and then to my first singing lesson! Yes, I decided that part of being healthy is to give time to other things I love, so taking a cue from Arduous, I’m going to jump in. Singing is something I’ve loved since I was a little kid pretending I was Pat Benatar, holding a deodorant stick microphone in the bathroom mirror.
I still sing every time I’m in the shower and take it to our local karaoke bar a few times a year. In fact, Michael and I had our wedding reception at said karaoke bar! But sometimes I sing so hard I can’t speak afterwards. (Yes, that’s fun for all involved.) So I’d like to learn how to do it right. I’m only 44 years old. No time like now!
