Our Global Kitchen exhibit at the Museum of Natural History
Been so busy these days that I forgot to mention that the wife and I went to go see the Our Global Kitchen exhibit at the Museum of Natural History since we’re both becoming a lot more conscious about what we eat.
The museum is right by our pad so we try to go every once in a while. It was a pretty cool exhibit so if you get a chance to go, it’s very eye opening.
If nothing else you’ll learn that corn is our biggest food export, bananas are our biggest food import, and that cod is getting a lot smaller because of over-fishing.
Me: Now I want a banana.
Also went to see my friend COB for her birthday. She’s actually the woman I met in this conversation. This is a good time to point out two things:
- If you stick by the rule that: Leave people better off having met you then you will get more invitations in life, the occasional email penpal, and some homemade gifts such as the above, which she made for me and my wife.
- Sometimes people ask me if I make up some of the things I write, like the conversations. I always tell them that I’m not that creative.
Met her fella and a bunch of her friends that day. Nice people – I would have stayed longer but I had a previous engagement. Still, it was good to get out of house for a bit.
Her: That’s the thing about California, you really need a car to get around and I didn’t have one.
Me: Did you consider car-jacking?
