of the Mind: Cupcakes and Technology

Move locations, eat locally

Tuesday, July 22, 2008
On June 26 my boyfriend broke up with me, and from June 27-30 I packed all my worldly belongings into a PODS container and became lease-free. On June 28 I decided to move to California, and on June 29 I called my boss on her vacation and told her so. On July 12 I moved to California, job entact, and The Omnivore's Dilemma in hand. I feel a little guilty about jumping on a food trend, but people:

Everything is made of corn!!!1

I'm living in Oakland, CA which happens to be an awesome place to have this foodie existential crisis. I got rushed through my trip to Berkeley Bowl so I'm not sure where my tomatoes came from, but they were organic and heirloom, so that's a step in the right direction. I'm trying to address a lot of things in my life, and among these are health/food and also finding a direction for blogging about my interests (food, technology, politics, young-people-things). I love how Use Real Butter has food (tons of it) but also nature and personal stuff mixed in without ever getting boring. I need to refine my blogging, but to do so, I need to WRITE.

And buy a better camera.

I'm using my BB Curve right now, which is a decent shot, but not going to make your mouth water. I will leave you with a shot of my lunch today. Peacock melon...rather bland, not unlike cantaloupe. It should be in season, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt that it just wasn't ripened enough.
