Today is Earth Day. I keep seeing specials and magazines talking about going green. The ‘carbon footprint’ they are all leaving making the periodicals and prodcucing and transmitting these ‘specials’ must be astronomical and counterproductive.
But fuck – in Cleveland (proper) they don’t even do recycling. It is a money loser and well, we are a poor big city. The poorest- twice out of the last three years. We’re lucky to keep the schools open and police on the road.
Oddly enough, I’ve never been fully able to break the habit of separating some of our items still. Deep down I know it just goes into one truck and into one landfill, but what happens if the day comes we DO get recycling? I need to be prepared and in the habit of doing this stuff.
But I can’t talk much about ‘carbon footprinting’. My big clod-hoppers have been on planes more often this year than they have not. And I’m traveling almost three of the next four weeks…so it only gets worse.
However, I am off to Vegas tonite….or this afternoon as it were. My man is out there for work, so I’m joining him for a few days. This will be my official first three vacation days I’ve taken since beginning work here 15 months ago.
Yes, I’m pathetic. For many reason, but you can add this one to the list.
