Hello, Mindless Drivel faithful! I would like to apologize for my extended absence. I forgot my password! After an array of emails Marianne at WordPress has so kindly given me a new one so I can once again berate the public with my nonsensical ideas. 🙂 Doesn’t that just make you giddy!?

If you have an energy fetish like me you will be BLOWN AWAY by this beverage. If you don’t like energy drinks and think Red Bull tastes like cat urine, this drink will CONVERT YOU INSTANTLY. From the makers of Voss artisan water comes a “crisp, clean, refreshing” new energy drink that not only tastes good but will kick you in the pants. Just take my word as a food connoisseur/snob that this beverage is the ambrosia of the energy drink world. Why are you still reading this?? Go buy it now!

Have you tried any of the Baked! style chips lately?? It’s a chip revolution! I can hardly tell the difference!! It’s such a great healthy alternative to regular chips right?! How do they do it?? So what’s my gripe against Baked! Lays/Doritos/Ruffles you ask???

ITS ANOTHER SIMPLE MARKETING PLOY.

No where do they claim to be healthier but for some reason, the mass population seems to believe that Baked! equals “this is me almost going on a diet and exercising to loose weight.” Let me assure you, eating Baked Lays is NOTHING OF THE SORT. Please take a second to stop and consider other things that are also baked: cake, brownies, cookies etc. Now are any of those things good for you?? Exactly. Marketing at its best.

Think about what type of additives they have to add to achieve the same consistency? Do you think that they’re not spraying down those delicious Baked! with delicious oil? Ridiculous…

Don’t be another consumer tool. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

And don’t get me started on trans fat….

This is a conversation I imagine went on somewhere in the greater D.C. metropolitain area at some point today:

Person who’s never recyled anything in their life #1: OMG did you hear that there’s going to be a surprise Live Earth show in D.C.!! Garth Brooks is playing!!!

Person who’s never recyled anything in their life #2: HOLY HEMP!!! Have you seen my hippie dress and birkenstocks!?!?!

Person who’s never recyled anything in their life #1: I knew I shouldn’t have brushed my hair today…

Yes, Live Aid is gracing the District with its prescence as a late add to the annual Folk Life Festival. Against the many wishes of Republican lawmakers, SOMEHOW Al Gore managed to bring Live Earth to D.C. thanks in large part to the support of Native American’s, fancy that…

Despite all the warm fuzzy feelings I get from separating my empty bottles and cans after a long weekend of swilling, I refuse, and always will refuse, to recycle and here’s why: I’M BITTER. I’ll admit it. It’s not because Im lazy or I hate the Earth. I’m just outright bitter…

Post Article by Robert Barnes

I sent this article to my mother (a school teacher for 30+ years) regarding the recent court cases ruled upon by the Supreme court regarding race and school…possibly one of the biggest race decisions in the Post-Brown era. The following represents our email chain/debate (mom is in italics):

okay, and how will this impact african americans? bussing was created to promote equality initially.

Well there are a couple of arguments:

The first argument is in line with the ruling of the courts wherein (not unlike my own situation with Cherokee Lane vs Ridgecrest) students (in this case a white student) wanted to go to the school right next to his home but was forced to ride a bus for 3 hours (ENTIRELY TOO LONG) to another school because of racial desegregation in the school district.
