Uncle El sent me this one:
My famliy eats a lot of chicken (being supplanted by tofu now) and it’s due to this man’s tireless work at the ag school. He deserves a shoutout on the blog, but I maintain tofu’s superiority in terms of embodied energy, versatility, and ease of preparation.

black bifold. simple, and it was on sale (thanks dad). maybe someday I’ll be able to get a Gaddi wallet… (my neighbor owns a leather goods company that makes premo stuff)
Dr. Modica recommends the electric toothbrush–easier on the gums. I suppose the battery isn’t particularly environmentally responsible, but the replaceable heads are less plastic than a whole toothbrush.

Motorola Timeport. like the StarTac only silver, and with a ‘color’ LED screen… used to be awesome but starting to die.

human nature … or at least women
if i had the atomic DeLorean, i’d go back to before freshman year and tell myself to get out of my nice warm sleeping bag and splash around in icy cayuga lake, to meet Judith Tucker before Jonas (whoever he was/is). it could have changed some things.
