I just got a raise! It was only about 50 cents, but that's an extra 20 dollars a week. Not bad.

Just made the most bangin' sweet potato and coconut curry. It's like a crazy-good cross between mashed potatoes and typical curries. Mmmmmm :)

Congratulations. There's also a "Nice things omnivores do" thread that is always a good read. Congratulation on the diet change. Good luck.

Just got back from three days of hiking through the countryside of the province I'm living in. Nothing but hills, valleys, streams for swimming and tiny villages here and there for miles. Soooo relaxing and rejuvenating :) Plus, I happened to pass a batch of tofu that one of the farmers was making, just sitting out next to the road while he fertilized the crops! Photo's over here.

 

PS: Congrats on making the switch, Aniaraven :) Sounds like it's been a super positive experience so far.

I just attended a swanky Yelp party at the Peggy Notebart Nature museum! It was awesome. Good music, nice edible treats (many of which were veg*n), and a great party vibe!

Yesterday I celebrated my grand niece's 8th birthday, and had a great time, and today I sort of remade Chef Chloe's cookie dough truffles, and they're even better when I, uh, Purp-ized them (is Purp-ized a word)?

I finally finished the project I was working on, and swam 6 laps, took 3 miles on the stationary bike, walked almost 4 miles, and got in some good stretching and iron pumping today!!

Wow Purp I hope you're still feeling positive about all that today!

Today it's 16 years since I knowingly/intentionally ate meat, fish or animal parts.

Haha thanks guys!

 

(Admittedly when I think about it I could be a few days out, but I'm as sure as can be that it was by the 13th - if I had a time machine I'd go back and tell mini me to write it down. Or not actually, there are so many better things I could do. I digress.)

 

Oh and I'll throw in another positive while I'm at it: today was the first day of my first proper academic conference. Name badge and everything. Yup, I'm growing up.

I am!! Nothing says, "Good day." Like a good night's sleep, and nothing says, "Good night's sleep." like a great workout.

Congratulations on your veggieversary.

We're having beautiful fall weather in Chicago and I love it! It's my favorite season of the year, but it tends to be kinda short in Chicago. I'm hoping we get a nice long fall out of this year. Apple cider, turning leaves, brisk walks by the lake, freshly baked tarts and breads, comfort foods, and the cool air. Ah, I love it!

I had an interview yesterday for a Christmas temp position at a local shop. I've been called back for the second part of the interview process. It's a really great store (Lush) , so if I get in on a Christmas temp, I might have a chance to get something better within the company as well.
