More about that terrifying video

In the last few hours since I watched that video I have an opportunity to really think about what I do and what I can do to lessen the impact I have on the earth... yeah I know I sound all hippie like but really, I think this is warranted....I think I'll formulate my thoughts in point form - as it is a bit easier
  • I am the lights nazi at home, meaning I usually only have one light on at one time... ask Heather - she'll attest that the first thing I do is walk around turning off the lights in the house... my mom drilled this into my head when I was young - much like she did with the whole table manners thing....
  • My house is always chilly, if not cold - I like (and I say this from a environmental and financial point of vue and not from a comfort one) my house to be about a balmy 15 degrees... max maybe 20... my point being is that this way I can use less natural gas and thus help to not contribute to global warming
  • My car is tiny.. the smallest of all my friends... and since I drive across town to work (I know, that sucks) I need something that is quite fuel efficient and since my tank of gas usually costs $35 I think I've accomplished that goal - apart from owning a hybrid of course
  • I recycle everything I can... again ask Heather - our recycling bins are always overflowing thus making the storage room messy as anything.....
Well I guess that is it for now.. I can't think of anything else I do, but I do think I need to step it up a notch... any suggestions?

Darling, I've have so many ideas, I don't know where to start! Guess that's what happens when you take a "hippie" degree though, ha ha ha!

Let's do coffee and plan our attack for saving the world - sound good?

PS - my degree is hippie do, I think that's why we get along so well!

Yes, we definitely need to do coffee! Call me and let me know when you have some spare time =)

And maybe someday us hippies will take over the world! Ha ha ha!
