Three Things

My second Three Things entry and I'm already behind! Wasn't able to post on Friday b/c we had some very precious friends in town (photos to follow).

1. is a very cool website that has two goals:
1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

2. Freegans! Oprah did a show on freegans the other week and quite honestly I can not get them out of my head. "Freegans are people who employ alternative strategies for living based on limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources." Basically, they do their grocery shopping from garbage bins. Listen, I'm not condeming. I'm actually excited about the idea of free food and any other usable goods and might even consider the idea if I didn't think Kevin would leave me immediately. I even had a dream that I tried dumpster diving at Scolari's!!

3. Cloth Diapers! You know..they are not your mother's cloth diapers. They don't even require safety pins anymore! My girlfriend Julie (who is due shortly after Baby Sister) is going for it, bless her heart. It's her first and I'm eager to see how it goes. Fuzzi Bunz, Happy Heinys, Mother Ease, Bumkins, but my favorites are the g Diapers.

I like the freerice
I think the freegans are absolutely disgusting
I think cloth diapers are crazy!!! Serioulsy, this is about how much is your time worth...My time is worth too much to be washing doodie diapers!I understand the environmental and money saving issues, however I prefer to destroy the earth because I do not plan on being here forever. I also would by the cheapest dollar store disposable diapers before I put myself through the misery of cloth diapers. Just my opinion. Hee Hee.

Cleaning a cloth diaper today is not like it was 20 years ago. They have these easy-cheesy liners that just fall out of the 'pants' and disolve in the toilet. Or you can compost them. I'm sure they're messier than disposable diapers but they are NOT wring-out-in-the-toilet-messy these days. Fascinating, really.
