Wednesday Thoughts

The weather in southeast Michigan this week is the stuff dreams are made of. It's the reasons we Michiganders stick around despite the winters. 70-80 degrees, sunny...perfect. And, a three day weekend coming up? It's a good week!

Now on to Wednesday Thoughts.
I read an article the other day about a study that showed that people who eat organic foods are more likely to be judgmental than people who don't. Here's a quote from the article:

It was published in the Journal of Social Psychological and Personality Science. It found people who were exposed to organic foods rather than comfort foods were less likely to volunteer to help a needy stranger.

Authors say organic food eaters judge moral transgressions significantly harsher than those who associate with non-organic foods.

You know what I conclude from this article? That THIS:

is the Christian thing to do. A belly full of hot fudge doesn't judge.

In other thoughts, are you guys watching Bob's Burgers? If you're not, you should be. It's one of the funniest shows in my life right now. Here's a trailer. Watch it.

And lastly in Wednesday Thoughts, this picture has been being posted all over my Facebook news feed this week. It's a map of the U.S. according to Michiganders. Some of it was very relate able to me! And very accurate. We do see Ohio as "Cedar Point" and Illinois as Chicago. Some of it wasn't true for me. I am very familiar with Utah and Idaho so I wouldn't see those as "Unsettled U.S. Territory." I'd probably replace that with "Mormons."

Anyway, enjoy the map. For the most part, it is true to the Michigan view of the rest of the country.

Happy Wednesday!

I love Bob's Burgers! "I want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant"
That map is hilarious. :)

Love the map, love Bob's burgers, and I must be a very Christian, non-judgemental person.

HA! True dat (about the food dude.) Happy tummy = nice people. But after spending 4 hours pulling weeds and planting more landscaping my knees, back, and legs entirely disagree... thankfully they have no say. Love it, a tummy full of fudge doesn't judge.

You know I love me some Bob's Burgers!! SO GOOD!!! I also am a huge fan of eating comfort food. Including burgers. I really think that "A belly full of hot fudge doesn't judge" should be on a t-shirt or a bumper sticker!!! Seriously! I'll do some research...

I totally love that I'm in the Mexican border part (although from growing up in central California,it seems more true than north Texas). I only can pick out Michigan because it's in two pieces - don't hate :)

So what that article is saying is that if I eat organic I will be come a D-bag. No wonder I hate going to whole foods.
