Up until today, there was a zit on my face in the photograph above. Whenever I looked at the photo, I saw only the zit. That is until today when I Photoshopped the sucker out. I thought about leaving it, since who is to say which is more perfect: the photo with the blemish or the photo without. And isn’t full disclosure and being my raw naked self much more interesting to read?
Yes it is.
Too bad. The zit is out! Ain’t technology grand? Speaking of technology, I just found out that I can order my bare veggie burrito from Chipotle via an app on my iPhone. And speaking of iPhone, I can hardly focus on work today because Apple is announcing their new products tomorrow and my fingers are crossed for the tablet/slate/better-than-lame-Kindle and maybe even a more souped up iPhone. Technology truly is grand.
But I’m reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer and finding out more about factory farms. In this case, technology is not so grand. The factory farmers argue that they are feeding their families and all of America. But oh, how they make the Earth cry. I’m finding I have more questions because of this book, like how can I call myself eco-conscious when I have eaten meat from farms that are anything but eco-conscious? All this makes me feel like a big fat faker. Maybe that’s why I Photoshopped the zit off my face in the photo. So I could show you my genuine fake self.
