Happy new years everyone… It’s been a little while since my last entry, so I’ve got a few things to update you on. I had the pleasure of getting out of the city for new years, and spent four long, lazy days at a cottage. The weather was mild, but unfortunately this meant that when my iPod fell out of my pocket onto the partially frozen lake, there was a couple inches of water that caused it an early death (thank god it managed to connect to my computer, I managed to save my playlists before bidding it adieu). So I am sans music right now, which puts a serious dent in my subway rides. However, instead of crying, I decided to pull out one of the books I got for Christmas. When I had my music on, I’d fiddle around with the solitaire or mahjong on my iPod, or send a few messages instead of reading. The book I’m reading is called Slow Death by Rubber Duck. It’s about two guys from Toronto that decided to see just how harmful some everyday chemicals are in our products. They tested out chemicals like phthalates, Teflon, and PCB’s. Before chemical acronyms scare you away from the innocently named book, trust me, it’s incredibly well written! It’s written so people can grasp the magnitude of harm that these chemicals are doing to our bodies. I highly recommend picking it up. Gotta give credit to a couple of Torontonians for bringing such an invaluable amount of information to the world’s attention.
