A Moment of Weakness

I had a moment of weakness at work today: a cup of coffee in a Styrofoam cup.

Let me count the ways of my weakness:
  1. I've recently switch from coffee to green tea. This morning I felt so tired, and craved an artificial pick-me-up.
  2. I put powdered non-dairy creamer in the coffee. I swear this stuff is like ingesting liquid fat. It's got corn syrup and trans-fats. Really bad for you. Why do they make it taste so good in coffee?
  3. The Styrofoam cup is bad for the environment. 'Nuff said.
  4. I keep dishes at work to avoid one-use disposable plates and cups. This morning I was too lazy to wash out my mug.

Does anybody else care to share their non-environmentally friendly moments of weakness? No judgment.

In the middle of our kitchen remodel, and with Sarah in the hospital on bed rest (see, I'm justifying before I even tell you!)... we are using a lot of paper plates, plastic forks, and <gasp> a whole stack of styrofoam bowls. Only good part: the bowls were given as a gift because the previous owner couldn't bring themselves to throw them away or to use them.

As soon as the dishwasher is reinstalled, I promise to never touch the evil things again!
