30 December 2009


Browsing headlines in Google Reader today, I skimmed past one that I could have sworn advocated the use of poison-control devices at home.

Of course, it said no such thing. It was suggesting the use of portion control as part of a weight-loss agenda in the new year.

Nevertheless, I had a brief, bright moment thinking of the coming year as a period of resurgent mediaevalism, a time when the fashionable and health-conscious would wear alicorn pendants to test their food and drink.

Oh come on, it's not any sillier than the currently faddish detox diets, is it?
