more food for thought

kitchen coincidence
Originally uploaded by zpa.
I got those canning jars from the Pennysaver (a pre-internet craigslist sort of technology) a few years ago. I got those canning jars and like, 20 more. They might have been free, or they might have been $2.

Since we're very likely moving next spring I am slowly emptying our basement. And I offered the remaining jars (well, minus a few, in case I ever add to my heavy rotation spice repetoire) on Freecycle.

And you will never guess who contacted me to pick them up! One Kathy Newman of Carnegie Mellon University. Unless I miss my guess, she's the very same who wrote that Whole Foods critical article. I'll ask her and let you know.

Apologies; I feel this partial image of my kitchen raises more questions than it answers, but it's a start.

EVEN MORE COINCIDENTAL : At the same time that I offered the jars, I offered some of that interior window insulation that you install with a hair dryer. Lots of people wanted it (!!) and I decided by lottery. The woman who got it WORKS at Whole Foods and said she needs it because she's completely broke and doesn't want to tin foil her windows to keep out the heat . . .

that was in the may issue. a Q&A with Gladwell is on the new yorker site and there's some stuff on Gladwell's blog too.

but i'm not going to touch it.
