There is something very rewarding in knowing that because you happened to mention Doctor Who at work, your manager proceeded to watch nearly the entire first season on her sick day and now you can discuss the episodes at work.
This is the same manager I have weekly Lost discussions with. My job is fun. :)
I have been putting off recording the flute part for one of the last Parselmouths songs we have to record stuff for. I should just buckle down and do it but I feel out of practice and scared that it's not going to sound great and therefore I just haven't done it. Tomorrow I will need to tell you whether or not it's done yet, and please be disappointed in me if I didn't do it.
Liz is coming over tonight so we can wake up early tomorrow and take the new tshirt design to the screen printer.
Oh great, I was going to write this entry in class but now we're watching a movie and it has study questions. That's annoying. I haven't needed to answer questions while watching a movie in class since high school. Looking over the questions, it appears to be about Iowa corn farmers.
I am now preparing myself for an enthralling 50 minutes.
Okay. I spoke too soon. The video was about these two guys who moved to Iowa after college to plant a one acre plot of corn (lol) and see what happened and to learn about corn in general because if you weren't aware, corn is in pretty much everything. There are about 45,000 products in an average grocery store in America and corn is in at least a quarter of those. Tortillas and salsa, yes, but also carbonated drinks, mayonnaise, hot dogs, frosting; even in nonfoods like garbage bags, diapers, batteries, and so on. There is corn in our HAIR. Just from how much we intake.
Most corn that is harvested isn't even edible to humans; it's turned into feed and fed to cows, which is horrible for them as they are not meant to be on all corn diet. And then they keep them solitary so they gain weight faster, and literally slaughter them before they get too sick from the crappy corn diet.
The corn that isn't used to feed cows is used to process all the aforementioned foods that don't sound like they should have corn in them. Like frosting. Don't try to tell your mom you're getting your veggie intake through birthday cake; that's not what that means. xD
I love these weird life discovery stories, so I was enjoying the movie. Although I get a little bit more depressed about the state of the American economy and business/money aspect of EVERYTHING each time I find myself uncovering new hidden truths about this world we live in.
My dad grew up on a farm, anyway, milking cows and collecting chicken eggs and bailing hay in North Dakota, so stories like this are important to me. My heart goes out to the modern farmer.
Okay, in not weird food economic news, um...... no, corn is all I have today. Bye!
