I must be crazy

I'm looking at my schedule for the next few days, and wondering why I'm still awake at the moment. I need to go to sleep because I have to be at work in 5 hours. I got lucky and got off work at Costco about an hour and a half ago, but I got distracted doing things I didn't need to be doing. I decided to do a quick post before going to sleep, relax myself a bit.

Next week isn't as insane as this week is, I only do a double shift two days, and I have several hours in betwee non those days. I still don't have a day off, but at least I'll be able to sleep a bit more next week than I am this week. My body won't be yelling and screaming at me the way it will be tomorrow. I think I'm actually going to have to drink a fully caffeinated something-or-other tomorrow. Maybe I'll invent something.

Working at Starbucks, for some reason, I've gotten really into drinking soy milk rather than regular milk. I'm not really sure why. I think it's lower in fat and all that, but it's also organic. Recently Organic foods have been really important to me. Free Trade, Organic, Natural, they all seem like granola, California crunchy terms, but when you really think about how much we eat, and what we do to the environment, it makes sense. And then you think about the antibiotics they feed cattle and chickens, and wonder why we have the Super-Flu that doesn't respond to penicillin. And then the growth hormones, which I believe is responsible for the increase in the rates of cancer. The problem is that Organic foods are more expensive. Luckily, more people are buying them, which makes it more available, and more competitively priced. Better for everyone. Moral of the rant: Buy Organic when you can afford the extra few cents, or when you are feeling guilty, or because you love the environment or your kids.

Question of the Day: Do you buy Organic foods? What & Why?
