Food Stuff Consumption And Miscellany

Friday, March 9, 2007

8-9 cups of coffee
4-5 sm cups of water
2 sm cups of hot chocolate
2 servings of pasta noodles with meat sauce plus
mashed potatoes
3 slices of multi-grain bread
4 "oreo" type of cookies
lg coffee
hot dog on slice of white bread with ketchup
can of pepsi (12 fl.oz.)
hot dog (spicey) with mustard
3/4 pack of cigarettes

was looking at a pack of cigarettes and noticed, for the first time, a new warning... please don't litter. the "icon" being a cigarette next to an ashtray. When I'm walking down the street and I'm done with a cigarette sometime I just toss the butt, other times I don't. When sitting in the park I generally either make sure the cigarette is totally out and throw it in trash can or put it between the plastic wrap and cigarette pack to throw out later. A couple of weeks ago, was at a bar I hang out at. They usually have a table outside with an ashtray for smokers. You can either smoke and not drink outside or eat/drink (when warmer) but not smoke. strange city regulations. anyway, the barkeep was outside sweeping up cigarette butts since the snow had recently melted, revealing literally "hundreds of butts" next to the sewage/drainage which partially becomes our drinking water after being cleansed/filtered. still though. Barkeep told me that camel cigarettes are the only brand that are bio-degradable because they use cotton in the filter. thought American Spirit cigarettes would also be bio-degradable since they always hype their brand as natural. just wonder thats all.

other topic: if you're into looking at "old" string instruments, ie, violins, they have four or five of them in a case near the Goverment Publications Department at the Philadelphia Public Library. They range in age from 1759 to 1930.
