because summertime in the Chi is the best time
What most people don’t know, that they should, is that practically every food you buy in a store for consumption by humans is genetically modified food. There are no wild seedless watermelons, there’s no wild cows, there’s no long-stem roses growing in the wild …

We have systematically genetically modified all the foods, the vegetables and animals, that we have eaten ever since we cultivated them. It’s called artificial selection. That’s how we genetically modify them. So now that we can do it in a lab, all of a sudden, you’re going to complain?

So we are creating and modifying the biology of the world to serve our needs. I don’t have a problem with that because we’ve been doing that for tens of thousands of years. So, chill out.

And furthermore, being able to “do it in a lab” is making agriculture and food production more sustainable and giving us the ability to feed more and more hungry mouths with less and less land, water, animals and other resources than ever before.  

It really irks me with fat, well-fed people bitch about things like this (and stir up non-controversy) not because of any scientific reason, but because it doesn’t fit  with their Whole Foods lifestyle.

I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for.

I wonder how many people don’t get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to be with.

And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.
It’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.
American Beauty (film: final scene monologue)
Coffee and wine are like my life coaches. Coffee is there for a pat on the ass, “Go get ‘em we can do this!” And then wine is like, “You’ll get them tomorrow. You gave it a good shot. Keep your chin up.”

Exactly.

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.
