The Newest Green Trend - Parking Lot Composting!!!

There is nothing more trendy today that being considered "green".  (Okay, wait, maybe Twitter is more trendy.  But since I know absofrickenlutley nothing about Twitter, tweeting, or anything related to it, I will abstain from making commentary...for now.)

So going green it is.  You know, all the steps you can take in life to make your carbon footprint smaller. Like getting rid of your perfectly drivable car by sending it to a junk yard where it can rot and spew toxins into the ground and replacing it with a zippy little Hybrid that is so quiet that the chances of you running down a blind person is off the charts.  

Wait, where was I?

Oh yeah, the newest trend - Parking Lot Composting!

This trend is so new that I just learned about it today, as I was walking to my car, when I stepped on a blackened banana peel that someone had obviously placed there so that is could become one with the earth again.  I felt so much closer to my fellow greenies as I scraped the rotting (strike that) decomposing mush off my Doc Martens* so that I wouldn't track it into my car.

So the next time you are munching on a piece of organic fruit that you bought for $6.99 a pound at Whole Foods and you don't know the best way to dispose of it, simply chuck it out your car window and let nature take its course.

Love the Earth!

* Yeah, I still have Doc Martens.  This particular pair I have had for almost 10 years and they still look awesome, even as I am stepping in the goop deposited by someone too lazy to wait and throw their trash in a garbage can or at least the bushes...

I have no Comment for the Parking Lot Compost... But I do have a Comment about Twitter.

Twitter is a Unique way to talk about any topic, and yet make it short and to the point and I think You would be a good person for Twitter.
You could Micro Blog about your Life in the Office.

I even Checked, and @OfficeScribe is not Taken, you have the perfect Chance to get it now.

Any litter just bums me out but nothing more than a smoker flicking that butt out of their window. Oh sure that the cellulose acetate filter will degrade in 3 to 10 years, but really, come on. I’m sure it’s just them being proud of being the last of a dying breed.

I’m told that you can polish your Docs with a banana peel. But you would need a new peel and not that blackened mass that was gifted to you in the parking lot.

I second your opinion, or lack of, about Twitter/tweeting. Ever since I happened upon an article about the "Top 10 Tweets of the Week" and one was Ryan Seacrest announcing he needed to pee, I knew that we were a sick sick world when we started to care about the urination habits of a B-rate, orientation-confused Hollywood type.
