My Foodies

Surely, some of you, nonexistent readers, know what a food baby is. For those who don’t know, they are the result of what happens when you eat way too much of your favorite food. But the thing people never talk about are the food dudes or food babes, or the food … whatever suits your cup of tea.

*Sips milk tea*

Speaking of that, one of my food love interests is tea. Not just normal tea, milk tea, preferably with the black caterpillars, with lots and lots of sugar. If it is correctly done, tea is my weakness (Arachnid you can forget this). Unknowingly, when I am in a social gathering of old people who drink tea, I repeatedly go to the counter and fix up a cup of tea. Usually, I use these percentages for my tea making, so for those of you who do not like tea, take note:

Hot milk: 20%

Tea bag: 10% (if it is Earl Grey do 20%)

Sugar/ Honey: 70% (no butts!)

Another favorite foodie (scandalous!) of mine is underwater mini prawns, otherwise known as shrimps. I especially enjoy them on skewers, freshly grilled from the local seafood restaurant. Recently though, I discovered that all shrimps were bread using a disgusting technique where the shrimps are raised in dirty, toxic water. Of course, I didn’t think twice about eating shrimp for my occasional eight hour bath.

Cheesecake is one of my sweetest food … whatever suits my tea, because who doesn’t love cheese + cake! (Except the lactose intolerants…you are missing out.) It is so creamy and sweet and wonderful. Sometimes I cut up the cheese cake into teeny pieces then chew, say about thirty-three times and try to savor the flavor as much as I can. Let’s just say cheesecake is hard to come by for a below average wage author such as myself with a carnivorous monster always there to eat my food.






It is imperative that we all recycle!


You must.


Many people do not recycle, and I find that absurd. Recycling is quite simple really, instead of putting your plastic in one type of container, you put it in another container that often smells much more pleasant.

Recycling requires no more energy than throwing something away. Even lazy people can do it.

But recycling is so much better for the environment. It keeps landfills less full, less plastic must be made, and fewer trees have to be cut down.

Truly, recycling is a win-win-win situation.


But, sometimes, people want to recycle, they really do, but the facility that they are in does not contain recycling bins. This is even more absurd. If your facility contains a trash can, then it should have a recycling bin as well.

It should be a rule: Wherever there is a trash can, there should be a recycling bin right next to it.

If a place does not have a recycling bin, a person may just shrug and throw away his or her water bottle, which would then go to a landfill and take 450 years to decompose.

I will repeat: Water bottles take an average of 450 YEARS to decompose in landfills.


I think that recycling bins should be tall and narrow like trash cans instead of short and squat like they normally are. It would make them more noticeable, and if a person notices a recycling bin, it would elevate his or her guilt of choosing not to recycle. Of choosing to put a water bottle in a landfill for 45o years.


Why should someone choose not to recycle? Why would a place choose not to have the option of recycling available to its patrons?

Why should people choose to destroy the Earth?


My note to you: RECYCLE!
