though I am, I'll be able to live the rest of my life in Somerville,
because we'll build lovely windmills on our hills and on top of
our city buildings, and we'll sell so much power back to NStar that
we can lower the property taxes and my rent will stop going up!
This means that
I can start taking weekends off again. Maybe I'll host a cooking
and kitchen safety show (Short Order Chefs) on SCTV featuring elementary-school
students who have submitted particularly stellar recipes. We'll
even start from the very beginning, with gardening specials at all
the expanded community gardens and a field trip to the new compost
Seriously, you guys have goats here?
Not many yet, but yeah.
(Cut to video
of students learning to milk goats, voiceover facts & trivia
about dairy goats)
Me: All right,
we're going to have a taste test - Somerville goat cheese, Northampton
goat cheese, and New York goat cheese.
Students do taste test, voiceover explains that they unanimously
decide all 3 are better with jam, end with shot of student letting
goat lick out jam jar)
Join us next
week for... (Screen stamped TOP SECRET) (whisper) Marshmallow
Fluff recipes even your parents will like! (Screen shows wholesome-looking
montage of vegetables with "nothing to see here, folks"
across the bottom)
Let's get the
windmills up in 2013, and lay the groundwork for citywide reciprocal
transmission so my landlord can put a little one and/or some solar
panels on the roof too, so he can sell directly back to NSTAR when
the city starts doing so in 2014. By then I'll have paid off my
debts and be ready to start my cooking show!
