Friday's Feast

I love reading other bloggers' Fridat Feast posts, so I am going to join them:

Given the choice, would you prefer to live in the country or in the city?

The city! I love cities, especially San Francisco. You can smell the free thought! I am amazed at how condensed everything is... I can find everything from authentic Chinese food to a French briche within a five block radius.

Who is the cutest kid you know?

I am assuming they mean BESIDES my own adorable little ones. Mrs. Hannigan has a daughter with the sweetest, squeakiest voice. It's not quite like Minnie Mouse, but close. She is a tiny little thing, which just adds to the general cuteness of it all.

Fill in the blank: I couldn’t believe it when I heard ___________.

...about 9/11. When I was on the way to work, they were talking about it on the radio and I thought they were talking about some bombing in London. When I got to work, my office mate was like, "you didn't hear???" She dragged me to a TV and we watched live as the second plane few into the second building. Lesha liked to pick on me for not watching TV--she considered staying in constant touch with the world a necessary thing, while I prefer reading--and this just proved her point.

Still reading, though.

I don't think it's a hoax, but I can see why people do. It's a shocking event, even almost a decade later. It's hard for me to understand people who hurt others, no matter what the reason. I don't know what the answer is, but I know that's not it.

Main Course
If you could star in a commercial for one of your favorite products, which one would you want to advertise?

I think we'd be a great family for Annie's Bunnies mac and cheese or any of the other organic children's foods we eat. We're a cute and normal looking family, so it would dispel some of the myths about the crunchy hippies that people think make up the green/organic movement.

What type(s) of vitamins and/or supplements do you take on a regular basis?

I don't. I drink various herbal teas, does that count? I dutifully pass out organic children's vitamins every morning and sometimes I take one while I'm at it, but in general I eat a balanced diet full of leafy greens and such. A daily vitamin would be overkill.

funny- i just put a video of miss squeaky on my blog. did you know that at the regular store, Annies costs WAY MORE than the Kraft. I don't get it. At costco, it's just a teeny bit more, but at Safeway, it's a lot higher. I agree about 9/11 very surreal, still.

I only buy Annie's at Costco, because it comes to only like 60 cents a box. I can't believe how expensive it is at Rosauer's, like two bucks or something.

I wrote a post back on Set.10 about how I remember 9/11. It was so confusing!
