Let the games begin

Posted by Nancy Guppy at 06:05 PM

Hi, my name is Nancy Guppy. I've always considered myself to be an enlightened, earth-friendly type citizen — I compulsively save worms that are stranded on city sidewalks. However, the following personal facts may point in a different direction: I often take way too long of showers; I am occasionally lazy about recycling; and I've been known to take spur-of-the-moment driving trips in search of those chocolate mint medallions called UFO's that are only to be found at Trader Joes. (In my defense, we are a 2-Prius family, so my UFO adventures don't pollute like some cars, but still.)

So, I'm taking part in this project as a wake-up call, to get to the facts about my real behavior and its consequences. It's kind of like saying "you know". It doesn't seem like you say it that often, you know, but if you start, you know, noticing and counting, you know, then it turns out, you know, to be a lot more than you know. You know?

Let the games begin.
