Ok, so I saw an oddly fitting tweet not long after forcing myself up this morning (it was still morning, though only by an hour or so, and I probably could have slept more but I had enough trouble getting to sleep at an earlyish hour last night that I decided not to push my luck â€” or my ability to breathe, which is unreliable thanks to upper respiratory ickiness):
I will spare you the TMI, readers, but suffice it to say that I whined way too soon yesterday. Oooof. Anyway. S-s-s-somethings from the Twitter:

Food safety/food purity seems to be today’s theme. First:
Did I ever blog the story of all the products I got to discontinue when I ran the cheese department at Sundance Natural Foods in Eugene? “Pasteurized processed cheese food” slices from Horizon Organics were pretty much the first to go, and I saved the label from the last case we sold as a trophy. Organic ingredients or no, if it can’t legally be called “cheese,” then… ew.
On a less icky note, a fantastic follow-up to the “most supermarket honey isn’t real honey” story I questioned on Twitter Tuesday three weeks ago:
Thanks, NPR! And thanks, Northen Spy Twitter, for posting! Someday I will eat at your delicious-looking restaurant (I am bummed to have missed Goat-tober, but your Sunday Suppers sound amazing)! Today, however, is not that day, because I have to stay home and put leftover Chinese takeout on fresh brown rice (mmmm, broccoli in garlic sauce….) Also, it kinda hurts to move.
And on that note, I am clicking “publish” and going to drink more tea.
