So, after I finished yesterday's blog, I started craving popcorn...hauled out the air popper, made some, melted a little butter in the microwave, and went about my business. I started thinking about what this process will be like for the month of February...heating oil in a pan, watching the popcorn like a hawk due to high risk of burning, and melting the butter on the stove. I realize how drastically my eating habits will be impacted by this project, and I look forward to seeing if my eating habits improve as a result if being forced to eat and prepare "slow food".
Again, Timmy Horton's for some Diet Coke and bagel on the way to USA Jet. I'm actually typing this blog while having a little down time at work...this is what I do when planes aren't flying - I surf the internet and catch up on emails. Come Feb. 1st, I will still have to use the computer for job functions, but I will not be using it during down times. What will I do? Sometimes there is a lot of down time...perhaps read a book? A paperback one that I can actually hold and feel the pages? Or maybe I will stop and got a paper on the way to work since Timmy H's will no longer be an option.
After work, I'm heading to my Aunt's for a Christmas get together. I brought the iPOD with our handy dandy iTrip which allows me to play my iPOD over a FM frequency...it's a bit of a drive to my Aunts.
While at this get together, I am going to keep my eye out for other technologies...one thing I know is that my Aunt has this fondue pot that she puts out every year. I love it...mmmmm...hot cheese and bread pieces. Will I have to pass on the fondue in February? Something to look up...I'm not sure when it was invented, but I venture to say post-1950.
