Eventually we sorted ourselves out & went out into the cold. It has been really cold lately! I like it, but we (especially the wife) were under-dressed yesterday. Oh, lets not forget; before we left we watched Modern Family, & last night we watched infoMania & The Rotten Tomatoes Show, whose new format I'm not crazy about, though I do like the mini-Tomato Meter at the recap. We picked up a six-pack of Magic Hat's "Wacko," which I like for being beet-coloured, & went over to Kira & Nino's. Kira's influence has been felt largely in my diet lately, not just with Oakridge Kitchen stuff or hanging out more, but because she recommended Real Food for Mother and Baby to Jenny. Now I'm taking spoonfulls of cod liver oil at night (which tastes like...fish liver, with a minty aftertaste) & brewer's yeast in the morning. Straight up brewer's yeast, which is weird & more odd than gross. I think downing two spoonfuls in a lowball glass of water is the way to go, out of the way's I've tried it so far (in cereal, in yogurt & granola, in a fruit smoothie). Dinner was similarly yuppie, with grass fed organics & such. Note that I say yuppie rather than hippie-- we've had talks about it, & we're pretty cognizant that certain eating choices, whether for health or taste, are matters of class. We pay more for whatever free-range, hugs & kisses, green grass cow flesh because that is an economic choice; many aspects of this aren't universalizable. I especially want to take note of that, since I'm usually arguing for the universalization of my opinions. This isn't one of those times, necessarily. Anyhow, then we cracked ourselves up for hours talking about circumcision & being gross. Then back home through the relentless cold!
