Spring is the season of new beginnings, and I’ve been thinking a lot about where this blog should go.
After some soul-searching, I’ve realized that time IS money, and the more time I spend thinking about being green and saving money, the less I’m investing in myself and my family. It’s a heck of a lot of trouble. And for what?
Last week’s commenter, BoBo, pointed out that people don’t really cause global warming. You know, I think he’s right.
Our actions don’t matter. Who cares if a few kids eat meat from sick cows? All this hoo-ha about superbugs that can’t be healed with antibiotics … really? People are resilient. Our pets and children and elderly people can buck up, get tough and fight off those super-germs and pesticide residues — and if so-called global warming causes the ocean to lap at my Colorado doorstep, then I’ve got beachfront property!
And when I watched Two Weeks’ Notice this weekend, I realized that what George Wade (Hugh Grant) says in the movie is true: Nobody loves a saint.
Let’s give up. Ah, that feels good!
Now, who wants to mow my lawn with my new riding mower and then join me for some factory-farmed takeout in styrofoam containers? I’m driving. Being cheap has resulted in a nice little nest egg, and I spent it yesterday on a new Lamborghini Murcielago, specifically selected because it’s the least fuel-efficient car out there. Sweet!
Oh … April Fool’s! (And happy birthday, Grandma.)
In actuality, I have signed on for April to Crunchy Chicken’s Buy Nothing Challenge. If you’re in, sign up at her site and let us know here, too!
But if I weren’t signed up there, I’d want this solar cell phone charger.
