NaBloPoMo Day 8: The more I think about it, the more food is the answer

I'm going to apologise upfront for the amount of typos and words missing and generally poor writing that this post is going to contain. Last night I didn't go to sleep until 2 AM, and if you know me at all you know that is basically staying up all night for me. I'm a grouchy mess of tired today. Oh so tired.

It all started because Inspector Climate went out to dinner with some friends, and at about 9 I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore. Then I woke up a little bit later in a panic because Inspector Climate still wasn't home. And then I couldn't go back to sleep. I annoyed because I was knitting something (for you!) and I thought I'd finished it and instead it was just awful so then I had to rip it all out and start again, which I started doing at about 12 AM. Then at 1, I was like "you know, I am tired" so I crawled into bed (Inspector Climate would sigh dramatically every time I moved - when I told him this morning, he was all "no, I wasn't awake..." GR!). So then I tried to entertain myself on my phone for a while...and then 2 AM rolled (with more sighing for Inspector Climate) and I finally was able to fall asleep.

All that is to say that today I'm not running on all cylinders, or any. And yet, I saw this video and I wanted to share it with you.  I had more I wanted to say about Americans and cooking, and what cooking actually means for most people these days and how much the average american spends on "cooking" (30 minutes a day...which is...nothing). And how the more I read and learn and understand, the more I think that gardening, and cooking, and real food is the answer to every question. But my brain is so fuzzy and sleep addled that unfortunately, all you get is a series of run-on sentences. So, enjoy that.


  1. Deidre....
    You are doing alright, Friend if staying up until 2AM only causes grouchiness and fatigue. I suffer from minor mood swings!! Lovely. ;)

  2. Love it! This guy is on fire. and he's totally right!

  3. If it makes you feel any better... I was woken UP at 2:00am! Mia's not the cutest alarm clock at the hour, ugh! I didn't get back to sleep until after 3:30 and then my hubs alarm clock went off at 5:30. So I'm totally feeling like a zombie today!
