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.
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.
Vegans in the kitchen, making awesome green juice and acting silly with companion kitties. What more could you ask for?

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 …
I’m officially too lazy to write and have started vlogging on youtube …
I’ll try not to get too bogged down with learning all the technical stuff and thus discouraging myself, so please excuse if the first few are a little less than stellar [in terms of editing!] Thanks!!
Julia at Real Detroit Weekly interviewed me about the Waffle Party this weekend in Pontiac … coincidentally this weekend is also the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit. So, who knows, we may have a lot of people just show up! We have to be ready.
Also, the Press Release was printed last weekend in the Oakland Press & it’s been posted on several community boards.
Got your irons ready? Get set … GO !!!

Here is an excerpt from the interview:
How’d the idea come to be?
There’s this group of people in Pittsburgh who have been doing waffle parties since the ’90s. It sounded like a lot of fun. … I’m vegan, and I’ve only lived [in Michigan] for about a year and a half.
