sue: i blogged about you being a hippie today.
awes: huh? what are you talking about?
sue: how you're going green and whatnot. recycling, buying organic, unplugging everything.
awes: yep, i'm the conservative hippie! that reminds me, i was thinking about buying some power strips so we can just flip the switch and turn everything off at night.
sue: really? every night?
awes: yeah, i'll have to add that to my list.
i pick up the computer so i can write about this conversation. the cover of the new time magazine is glaring at me: "why we need to see the light about energy efficiency"
