Things I Bought

I wanted to post something today, but I wasn't sure what to write. So instead I'll just list a few of my recent purchases. First, I bought Kellog's Fruit Harvest Cereal. It is delicious. It has real strawberries and blueberries in it. I'm slowly making the transition from junk food to a healthy, organic diet. I know Kellog's isn't the same as eating a bowl of oats harvested from a farm on the outskirts of town, but it's still the first cereal I've ever enjoyed without the words Cocoa or Crunch on the box.

Did you know that Best Buy isn't selling CDs anymore? I went in for something and all they had was one rack left of the stuff they couldn't get rid of. So I browsed the pile of scraps and came across 1998's Mos Def and Talib Kweli are Blackstar. So add that to the list of things I bought. The production is low-budget and really vibes with the organic message and mood of the album. "You're not strong, only aggressive because the power ain't directed. That's why we are subjected to the will of the oppressive" (Thieves in the Night).

My third purchase was not only organic, but local as well. This lady owns a dog boutique on Main St. She makes all of these quirky dog treats. I bought one shaped like a cannoli. My dogs just wanted to suck the white filling out. Ooh, I also bought a newspaper and read it in the park downtown. I felt like such a grown-up until some kid went flying by on a bike and yelled "Ahh!!" at me. Then I just felt like a doofus (sp?).

Michael, how about I get you some real organic cereal?

Oh, and now that it's warmer we can do some more old people things like we did last year like walk to the library and walk up to Main St. to get an ice cream cone.
