Purp Going to the Blessing of the Animals, then going out to brunch afterwards, and watching people eat meat, eggs and dairy.

Purp The wrong Athletics baseball team tonight. (My nephew plays on an Australian Little League team called the Eastern Athletics, which lost their final games, coming in 6th place in the entire country of Australia), and the Oakland Athletics team beat my Mariner's tonight on my birthday game.

leedsveg Three of us went to Pizza Express and the food was not brilliant. Initially we were overcharged by £64 ($82)! Then we were undercharged by £14 ($18). Finally we were given the correct bill of £62 ($80). Not impressed...

I'm bad for that too, I would struggle if it were just my health. Even now I know I should lose weight yet I struggle with eating.

I cringe every time someone talks about how hard it is getting enough calories on a vegan diet. I don't have any problems!
My problem at the moment is getting too many calories.

Knowtions In Motion This supposed helliday that highlights independence irks me, like all the other hoopla days so often blindly celebrated throughout the year.

Seems like co-dependence day would be a much more suitable title, especially when you look at the overall state of things and the direction many things are heading in, and then a closer look at how it's celebrated by many.

Grilling animal carcasses and smothering them in other animal bodily secretions while blasting off fireworks that send fear and flashbacks through the bodies of the soldiers they're supposedly honoring. Not to mention the domestic animals and wild life that are negatively affected by it.

But let's keep calling it a holiday, putting things on sale so folks can consume even more, giving many a day off from their usual stressful grind - who isn't grateful for that, and make loud a** exploding noises as soon as it gets dark that emulates the same battle fields that many are still trying to escape in their minds.

Sighs.

So I have been discussing brain plasticity with my Dr - decided on learning a new language. Trying to create new pathways through my brain.

But it has to be new and difficult.

I did Latin in high school and have been learning German already.

So Romanian - new to me and very hard to learn for me anyway - sometimes I can't even put an English sentence together.

I work on it twice a day and one of those times is late at night (convenient time for me).

Possessive Pronouns just made me go "OMG I'm giving up" didn't though. Declining nouns is going to be even worse

Werewolf Girl I guess it must be because I'm getting older... I can't sleep in on weekends anymore!

I woke up at 7am on a Saturday and I feel so lame.. On the bright side I have a lot of alone time before my boyfriend wakes up...

Yes! As long as vegans are the minority, I'd go crazy if I didn't let things like that go. I can't relate a piece of meat on a grill to things like poop like some compare it to, too much OCD.
I have used the analogy of seeing a bug in your food, would you not send it back, and that goes over pretty well. I play it by ear. If I can prevent it before it happens I'll say something, if not, I let it go

I am tired of omnivores asking if I eat things like rice, pasta or wheat. It comes from the same people

Purp Music Choice has a channel dedicated to seasonal music. What do they have for this weekend? Patriotic (American) music. What do they refer to this weekend as? "BBQ weekend." Uh, no, Music Choice, this weekend is a three day weekend for those who've died in wars for their country, not for barbequing.

Purp A local nursery that's been in business for 70 years is shutting down. Do you know what they're going to put in there?? Big, ugly concrete warehouses.

Symondezyn It's beautiful outside for the first time in months, I've been working all day, and was REALLY looking forward to a nice hot yoga class tonight, but... my stinky husband gave me his cold! GRR! And the worst part? I was bragging to him just the other day how i NEEEEVER get sick *eyeroll* - karma on me for being cocky! LOL

We ended up getting the food over 2 hours later. I just wanted curry! At least it was delicious when it finally got here...
Gooberknuckles. That's too bad. I'm glad you finally got something to eat, though.
