I had a coworker who hated drinking water (or anything) and ended up with kidney failure repeatedly as a result, so she basically had to force herself to measure how much water she drank every day to make sure she got enough.
BUT, Tawny, I seriously doubt your coworker is in a situation like that. I am sure she's just buying into the urban legend of getting eight 8-oz glasses of water daily. I can't imagine being that obsessive either!

I have been wondering, as we are primals do we only drink pre-Columbian coffee? Nyuk nyuk.
somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

My Primal Meanderings
Sorry for the bunny tangent, but just wanted to pitch in my thoughts on the safe plants lists floating around. I have no idea who compiles those, but in what world is lettuce unsafe for bunnies? And clover?! Oxalis??? Also, my rabbit will practically gnaw through the fence to get at our plum trees. I keep a small pile of leaves and twiggy branches in his outdoor pen for him to play in. He strips the leaves off and bruxes on the wood. Maybe these things are toxic, I don't know, but he's been eating piles of the stuff for years, including all the snail-nibbled lettuce leaves and a lettuce core almost every day. I have a couple kinds of oxalis (my favorite is pink wood sorrel) in a few shady spots in the yard and loooooove it in a salad mix. It gets a bad rap for oxalic acid (like spinach) but I haven't been able to find any citation for the idea that it's unsafe, except in massive amounts.
I hear ya on the pet food bill... happily if you have the storage space and a nearby horse-friendly feed store, a bale of sweet orchard or timothy hay is a tiny fraction of the price of pet bunny food and it takes us most of a year to go through a bale.

I think this is perhaps more appropriate for a "saddest CW moments" thread... during the summer when the place we usually practice is closed, my dance school rents space after hours from a daycare that has a huge unfurnished room ideal for dancing. Anyway, I was in their kitchen getting water and on the fridge was a list of kids and their allergies or dietary restrictions for the minders to have a quick reference. Among the usual nut and shellfish allergies or religious restrictions on certain meats, there were 3 kids noted as being "vegetarian." Seriously? Vegetarian pre-schoolers? I know their parents mean well, but I can't help but feel horrible for these poor kids and how their and their own children's health will be compromised in the long-run.
