Last weekend I saw a Smuin Ballet performance of “Spring Bouquet.” While I can appreciate the artistry and painstaking skill that goes into every ballet performance, I couldn’t help but feel like something was missing: a compelling story. To me, ballet can feel a bit stuffy and tedious after thirty minutes of watching men and women swirl and bounce around the stage, but what if a ballet could offer more? Much more? Say, take my favorite movie of all time and make it into a ballet: JAWS The Ballet.

And just like that, Ballet would be AWESOME! Can’t you just hear the John Williams score now? Duuun dun duuun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun BOM BOM dun dun dun dun dun dun.

The controversy on whether eggs are good or bad for human consumption has been going on for as long as I can remember. For every study that says eggs are bad, there is inevitably another stating the contrary. This teeter-tottering between egg enthusiasts and egg detractors has now lead us to a new study promoting the idea that eating egg yolks is almost as bad as smoking cigarettes.

I will admit that I was taken in by this new study’s disappointing findings because I eat multiple eggs on a daily basis. As a pescetarian, I need all the protein I can get and I always considered eggs to be the perfect protein source. After briefly considering giving up these delicious globular proteins, I came to the conclusion that there must be a special interest group behind these never-ending egg-hating studies. It would have to be a group so deeply connected and passionate about stopping egg consumption that time after time they could shamelessly defy logic and push ridiculously deceiving anti-egg propaganda. That’s when it dawned on me. Only one group stands to gain something from discouraging people from consuming healthy, delicious eggs: Chickens!

This is a 100% factual reenactment:

Apparently, Nelson is a little chicken plucker. I learned this, rather unfortunately, as he proceeded to chase down and pluck one of my dad’s pet chickens last weekend. The poor chicken was terrified and covered with cuts, but she survived.

A bizarre thing happened as my dad and I washed her off in the shower. Somewhere between rinsing the blood and dirt off of her plucked body and speaking to her in a soothing tone, I became increasingly nauseous. Her bare body looked like it was ready to put into the oven for dinner, yet she was staring up at me with scared little eyes. It is a strange experience to see food become something more than just meat to consume. I haven’t been able to eat meat since. I may never eat chicken again.

Friday the 13th

I was born on a “Friday the 13th” (dun dun dun), so I believe they are good luck days. Happy Friday the 13th! Don’t walk under a black cat or cross paths with ladders and whatnot. 😉

A Year-End Reflection

Now that Christmas is over and 2010 is coming to an end, it seems particularly fitting to devote some time reflecting on the past. Since 2010 was not a great year for me, I thought it would be fun to take a look at what 10-year-old Kim wanted to accomplish with her life and see how that has panned out. ‘Cause sometimes you have to look backwards if you want to move forward (but not if you’re driving of course).
