Deep questions I'm pondering, here in Chicago:
1. At the airport, while eating a portabello mushroom wrap for lunch:
What food group is a mushroom? Is it a protein? It's not a carb, right?
I still have no answer for this. I mean, mushrooms are rather bizarre--they fall somewhere beyond the animal/vegetable/mineral continuum... Into that dark land where I can almost hear God saying, "I called it a FUNGUS...what more do I have to do to convince you not to eat it???" Still though, it was yummy.
2. Last night, on the way to the conference:
You know those camera shots they use on the Weather Channel featuring harried Midwesterners clutching their parkas and fighting unimaginable squalls of wind and snow to get to their destination? Apparently, they fly folks in from Boston to film those things. (I suspect it's a secret effort to get us to stop complaining about how cold it is in New England. Probably won't work).
3. This morning, at 6:00am Boston time:
I can sleep for an extra hour here???
I love Midwestern time!
Happy Weekend :)
