musings On monday (no. 1)

(alternate title: my incredibly random veiws on brackets and soda.)
What I'm musing about today:



-I've been thinking, musing, what is the whole bracket email thing? (So sorry to those of you who have your email advertised as such)
I do know that its just to represent a real email with the @'s and .'s Is it supposed to be artsy or something? Probably so haha. :)






 


-For those of you who don't know me personally, I don't drink soda; and I'm constantly telling my family and friends that they shouldn't either :) No really. I think many Americans consume so much soda, that it's really going to become a serious issue. (it already is somewhat) When somebody asks why they shouldn't drink soda, I say "Because it's so bad for you." ( I probably could have come up with a more original response haha) Anyway. The above picture shows all the effects that soda can do to a person. Now do you see how serious this is???

So, what are your opinions of emails with brackets and soda?
I love you so much!

well what if soda is a treat? not once a month, not even every other month. can it still do the same amount of harm? what if the soda we consume is only those with low(er) caffine than mtn. dew, pepsi, coke... so that pretty much limits it to sprite (aka sierra mist or fresca), root beer and disgustingly died colors like orange and grape and cherry squirt or something? would it still have the same effects? maybe? idk. =)

That is a REALLY good point Amber. Having soda as a treat probably not a big deal :) Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much soda you would have to drink in order to see some of the effects, such as the ones above. I need to do more research :)

Julia, I think that picture is for the americans that have, like, sodas every day! I think if you have one every other week or once a week thats fine. I mean the same symptoms could happen if you live off brownies or ice cream or even muffins! SERIOUSLY! You need to lighten up a little with the soda thing

Julia said...

Ruthy, also a good point :) The photo above probably is for very heavy soft drink consumers.

That's what I think as well...

I'm all for no caffeine - to addictive...but I think a very occasional soda can be fun :)

i love soda, but this is making me re-think it :) and the brackets around the at and the dot are for spam...if you put the @ and the . , you'll get a buncha spammers...
