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.
