Last night, I met Colleen and Cindy at Dante's, and we hung out since Colleen is up from San Diego for her sister's wedding. It was pretty fun. We each had a glass of wine at Cindy's apartment beforehand, then I drank coca cola's all night.

Here is a letter that I wrote to Thai Kitchen recently:

Dear Thai Kitchen:

I would like to make a suggestion in regards to your choice of packaging your Thai Kitchen Rice Noodle Bowls. As a student who is always on the run, your Rice Noodle Bowls sold by Trader Joe's provide a tasty meal that is quick to make, not fried, and egg-free. Personally, I enjoy the spring onion and roasted garlic flavors the best. As a favorite choice of mine for lunch, I am sad to say that I must now consider whether or not is wise for me to continue buying your product. My main reason for giving up the delicious Rice Noodle Bowls manufactured by Thai Kitchen are quite simple: they are overly-packaged.

I feel that we all need to make intelligent choices in our day to day lives to preserve and maintain the planet. By buying a product that is wrapped not once, not twice, but three times goes against my personal belief to do my part to preserve the planet. Let's face it: many people do not recycle, so the cardboard and shrink wrap used on just one Rice Noodle Bowl (when it is enough packaging to be used on three Rice Noddle Bowls) goes to the landfill. To me, this is unjustified and exemplifies unwise stewardship of our resources.

Before I give up on the tasty products that Thai Kitchen produces, it is my hope that this letter might encourage you to change your packaging methods so that when consumers think of Thai Kitchen, they think of a company that sets an example in the food industry of what it means to package products with the environment, pollution, and preservation of resources in mind.

I look forward to seeing Thai Kitchen embrace environmental concerns and seek to elevate the standard for packaging in the food industry.

Thank you for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,
