Not to detract from R's volcano relief post...

Whoa. I don't have anything NEAR as important or interesting as Rebecca to write about. However, I just wanted to take a moment give the FDA's 3-ridiculous-years-in-the-making approval of Plan B/Emergency Contraception for over-the-counter sales the resounding "Woohoo!" it so richly deserves. I would also like to kick the FDA in the pants for not approving it 2 years and 11 months ago, and for making the age limit 18+. But hey, we'll take what we can get. Especially in Texas...

"Little Miss Sunshine" was indeed awesome. Also thoroughly enjoyable was the documentary "The Real Dirt on Farmer John", the story of an organic farmer outside of Chicago (Edwardses, do you know about this guy? Angelic Organics?) that was screened at the Wildflower Center yesterday evening. Even more enjoyable than the movie was the catering by Whole Foods. Even more enjoyable than the catering... well, okay, let's be honest, nothing topped that.

Less enjoyable than anything mentioned in the previous paragraph is the fact that I'm still on the computer. So I'm off.

Hope you're all well!




  1. Farmer John isn't an acquaintance. Have seen two 5 - 10 min. vignettes about his story. The film was here and gone some time ago. Gone so quickly we didn't have a chance to see it.

  2. But thanks to Netflix, we shall see it when it's released on DVD.
