Inspired by the LB’s habit of asking provocative questions… I’d like to know what’s lurking in and around your nightstand? I’ll go first:
On top: Mother Courage and Her Children script, piles of books (The Last Days of Ancient Sunlight, A People’s History of the United States, A Mother’s Guide to Raising Healthy Children Naturally, A Philosophical Discourse by Jurgen Habermas, Walking on Water, End Game volumes 1 & 2 by Derrick Jensen, a couple of Kenneth Koch poetry books), magazines (4 New Yorkers, a USAA newsletter, a kids National Geo), tissues (bad seasonal allergies). In the drawer: a b&w photo of deceased husband. Clearly I need to clear off the nightstand.
The Ladies of Crazytown will be eating Veggies from these lovely people!
What about you? Are you gonna:
A) Buy your Produce at the farmers market, it’s a great way to use your wicker shopping basket and floppy sun hat.
B) Join a local CSA and hope it makes you as cool as the Crazytown kids……..fat chance!
C) Shop at the mega market, fuck a bunch a hippies.
D) Grow your own vegetables and make your own beauty and skin care products, because a life without homemade flax seed lube is no life at all?
Seriously, I want to know what you people are planning and will it result in a meal or two for me? Are you going to eat local?
P.S. Why is there no local eat local website, anyone?
P.P.S. I think homemade lube is hot.
