time goes by

I’ve had several new ideas for the video blog, some of which I’m working on. I’m hoping to bring some humor and other vegan voices to my channel. I had the idea of interviewing my friends who are vegan or vegetarian since I think it’s important to show the diversity of opinions even among us.

Quite tired right now but have posted in a while. The kitties are lazing around, a moment of silence before they begin their next round of chaos! last night was a veritable orgy of fur covered purring as they decided to descend upon me in my gentle sleep, wakening me with the squirming, pawing, tickling, and suckling (one of the babies likes to suckle my fleece). I’m debating keeping them out of the bedroom tonight, which I only recently reclaimed, mostly to reclaim my sense of sanity and appropriate use of space – I had been sleeping on a futon mattress in the middle of my living room until last week since the kitty-babies came home to stay with me in May.

That said, they have brought so much joy into my life I don’t know what I was doing before!  Even still I am having some mood issues, and seem to have grown some tolerance to my meds.  Having generalized anxiety and sour moods for no known reason … anyway I don’t want to complain about that now, here.

Goodnight!

dear angera

EMAIL to my (vegan) [half-Japanese]  friend who got married in a fairy tale style wedding last weekend and is in hawaii this week. She ordered some Tupperware at the Waffle Party. This note just made me laugh, I hope it makes you laugh too. This is just how we talk to each other … lolz.

Hey gangsta

Yer BANANA GUNS are here. Yeah, that’s right, those obnoxious yellow weird shaped pieces of crap you bought for some dumbass charity.

What d’ya want me to do with them??

Hope your honeymoon was scrumptious and that you are fat, happy and preggers by now.

Love,

ARISA

P.S. ANGERA – YOU were the most radiant bride I’ve ever seen!!  It made me puke with giddiness *xoxoxo*

Y not cease fishing in the Gulf of Mexico?

Ever wonder what vegans eat? Well, we eat A LOT of things :)  Here’s just a sample of what my wonderful vegan BF made for dinner last night …

* * * * * *

In other random thoughts, we were talking about the oil spill again last night and about the moratorium on deep water drilling, which can be debated whether that is a good thing or not, but … Why hasn’t anyone suggested a MORATORIUM ON FISHING???!!!  Let the species recover for g-d’s sake.. why has this not occurred to anyone? We don’t dare rob people of their precious seafood dinner, but we’ll gladly rob the life of innocents for our palate. Talk about addiction (as in, addiction to fossil fuels), this one is so deep under wraps that no one dare speak of it. Wake up people. Fish are going to be gone from your waters in a few decades at this rate and then you will HAVE TO give up eating them.

world peace diet reviewed & renewed

In which I say a lil about this phenomenal book, The World Peace Diet by Dr. Will Tuttle.

Order online at http://www.worldpeacediet.org
Kitten clip at the end.

*** from a review by Eve Spencer, Vegan Voice Magazine **
“The World Peace Diet is not a diet in the sense of a fad diet to lose weight, but the author illustrates clearly how the social, psychological and spiritual consequences of our meals “ripple through all aspects of our lives.”

“The book is systematically developed to reveal the connection between what we daily put on our plates, and peace in the world and in our lives. Some of the chapters covered include the power of food, the herding culture, the nature of intelligence, domination of the feminine, the metaphysics of food, science and religion, profiting from destruction, the journey of transformation, and in the final chapter—living the revolution—is ‘the last days of eating animal.’” …

late night vegan rants …

Not my best, but at least it’s very, um, candid :)

I feel sort of bad about bashing the oilspill coverage. but I feel worse about all the sea life that people seem to think is just there for their dinner …

Vegan Vlog #3

In this post I talk about some of my vlogging goals, deconstructing stereotypes of vegans and dairy farmers, and about the difference between animal welfare and animal rights. We must all have compassion and listening for each other …
