Not too long ago I started keeping a blog over at a web site called Plenty, the online arm of a magazine about how to live an environmentally friendly life without becoming a total freak.
Those of you who know me will doubtless be incredulous that I am keeping a blog about the environment. You won’t be the only ones. I myself am pretty incredulous, as I hate the environment. However, the way I feel about the environment is not too different from how Winston Churchill felt about democracy; that is, that it was the worst form of government except for every other form of government. Not that the environment is the worst form of government except for every other form of government. Oh, you know what I mean.
In any case, Being Green is intended to chronicle my attempts to live at least a mildly sustainable life without ever eating tofu or hugging a tree. Take a gander, and see what you think.
Now I have to follow two Faustus blogs? Oh, the pressure!
Dear lord! Where do you find all this time to write with your busy-busy life of knitting?
Hey, no dissing the bean curd! I have tofu to thank for this body.
While I agree that Americans have about as much idea what to do with a hyphen as with a bidet, my impression has been that extraneous hyphens are a more common abuse than are omitted hyphens. Which, of course, makes the bidet analogy hopelessly inapposite, but I couldn’t help myself.
Also, I firmly believe that guilt and obsession increase the metabolism so that for every fifteen minutes of either, you should easily be able to justify another (non-reduced-fat) Oreo.
I feel betrayed. Blogging on another site without my knowledge. The pain is too tremendous for words.
Tofu is okay if it’s frozen first, defrosted, and then DEEP FRIED and served with a lovely sweet tamari sauce with cute little shaved vegetables floating in it, and maybe some sesame seeds.
I & EGL both….
So does this mean I need to return the baby seal coat I just bought?
