Pharmaceutical shopping, loving the iTunes store, a spaghetti sauce recipe and RIP Bob Moog.

If I ever meet someone that makes amphetamine or methamphetamine, I'll be tempted to kick them for making my life unnecessarily difficult. Because of their use in manufacturing the aforementioned drugs, phenylpropanolamine (PPA) was voluntarily withdrawn from the market in 2000, I got the third degree every time I bought Tavist ASH because it contains pseudoephedrine (which is not its only active ingredient, but I switched to regular Tavist to save the headache at checkout), and finding ephedrine is increasingly difficult.

In the meanwhile, I love how easy buying music from the iTunes store is -- after buying Sweet Honey In The Rock's children's albums for the midget last week, I bought myself two Laura Cantrell albums (Humming by the Flowered Vine and a 2003 live album originally released on eMusic) over the weekend and I'll be burning backups of them later this week. Biko appears to like "14th Street" as much as I can tell from her reaction -- she also likes the Indigo Girls and definitely dislikes anything with bagpipes.


I plan to try this recipe from Susie Bright the next time I remember to buy tomatoes: The Best Spaghetti You Ever Had.


Rest in peace, Bob Moog.
