I, Elizabeth
If you are what you eat, in my case I'd be anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate....

For work, I've had to do some research on sustainable agriculture and the like, including Eric Schlosser and his Fast Food nation book so I've read some excerpts and am disconcerted... for two reasons...

1. the obvious, is nothing real? Why is everything flavoured? etc. and 2. I'm mostly concerned by how unconcerned I am. The entire piece of why McDonald's french fries are so delicious (very precise use of chemicals and un-french-fry french fry flavouring I just really wanted some french fries from McDonalds! I think, "hey, it's all in the name of progress! We can make tastes tastier so why not?" But then I also think, "hey, I wish I was a subsistence farmer or Amish or at least a little more in touch with the true nature of all things."

Oh well. In the end, I think I'll have to eat some McDonald's this weekend. Or Chick fil a. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Chick fil a.

After reading that Chick-Fil-A donates a bunch of money to anti-gay marriage groups, I've decided I will no longer eat at such an establishment. Not that I ate there terribly often to begin with, just saying.

I miss you. We should talk some time soon. =)
