I am not Catholic. I am pissed off. I am giving up Monsanto for Lent.
This is Day 2.
I have a fantastic assistant. At my real job, I mean. Not for blogging. (Alas.)
Said assistant is accustomed to my strange ways. When I hold meetings, she special-orders me meaty, eggy, oil-dressed salads to enjoy while everyone else scarfs sandwiches or pasta alfredo.
And yet, even she raised her eyebrows at me today.
I asked her to cancel my special lunch order for today’s meeting. Why? Because almost every catered salad is a veritable Monsanto’s Delight: GM vegetables, rBGH-laced bleu, commerical chicken raised on GM corn, and dressing consisting of flavored GM canola and high fructose corn syrup. Yum yum.
If I want to avoid Monsanto, I’m going to have to prepare my own meals. All of them.
And so, I shall bemuse a roomful of people by sitting at the head table during a working lunch, eating my homemade salad of wild salmon, organic spinach and avocado, and Carlson’s lemon-flavored fish oil from an enormous plastic tub.
And Monsanto won’t get a penny for it. Ha.
Speaking of Monsanto, this video is worth your 10 minutes:
Kinda makes you wonder what else we aren’t supposed to know.
Homework: Share the video on Facebook, if you feel it’s important. And visit the Millions Against Monsanto page.
