Little Mother of all the Roaches, President-for-Life of the MAC Harlots!
warning: this is kind of long...I had a conversation with a friend yesterday that I keep replaying in my head...

yesterday I mentioned that several types of GS cookies were vegan and it made me happy

"wait... you are going VEGAN?"

"well, I don't eat meat or dairy but I'm not vegan - but when choosing a food item, if I choose something I know is vegan, then it makes it much easier, it's a no brainer"

"well, I know you stopped eating meat and dairy (btw, this was 6 months ago), but what does that actually mean??? does that mean you limit the quantities of it?"

"no, it means I don't eat it"

"but you still eat it sometimes?"

"no, it means I don't eat it. If I eat something that I find out later has something in it, I don't freak out, but I do my best to not eat it at all"

"well, i know you stopped because you thought it might help your inflammation in your body" (I have an auto immune form of arthritis)

"yes"

"but.. you aren't, like, stopping eating these things for OTHER REASONS are you?"

"well, as I've learned more, sure there are more reasons that purely health reasons"

"well... I just think if you are going to stop for your health, that's one thing, but stopping for other reasons, well, that's just weird, and I mean.. as long as you aren't going all Vegan, on everything, like I saw shoes that were vegan - and that's just ridiculous"


really????
I'm not sure if i'm annoyed by her thinking she has any say over any part of my life (or that I care what she thinks about my choices)
or that it's okay to do things for a reason SHE thinks is okay but not for another reason...

the whole thing just keeps going around and around in my mind

I'll have to agree with the Eff her, Perri. What someone puts in or on their body is their choice and absolutely no one has say in it. I get annoyed people on every side of the argument (why is there even an argument?) can't respect that. I eat meat and dairy and wear leather but have issues with big business farms, GMO's and specific types of fur. That's me. I have close friends that became vegans years ago. That's them. Everyone was always cool about it and when having a dinner party; it's not that hard to make sure there is something everyone can enjoy.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

That just reminded me of a conversation I had with my ex when I ran into him a few weeks ago. He's been a vegetarian since we were in high school. He tried to go Vegan but he recanted. He met up with some of our old friends a couple months ago and went to a tea house/restaurant that has been in our town for several years. They have one dish with meat. Everything else is vegetarian or vegan. He had never been and I've never been myself because they have been closed every single time I have stopped by, *or overloaded with people because it's live music night* and because I would rather eat at home 99% of the time. Anywho, he took his son who does eat meat. He said he was reading over the menu and saying, "Dad, you've drug me to some kind of a hippy joint. How could you do this to me?" Lol. 5 year olds are the best.

I get grief about the same issues. It's stupid. I'd counter their arguments more aggressively, but I'm afraid my strong feelings will prompt me to cry.

Now I just try to ignore haters/non-believers. Or I shut them down by making a terrible face. No one close to me even tries to discuss it anymore. Yay!

There should be more "agreeing to disagree" about personal choices, imo.

After 2 days with temps ranging from 68-72, I don't even know how to act anymore. Unfortunately it's been very cloudy, windy and grim looking today but I have enjoyed having windows open.

ETA: Also meant to say, on a completely unrelated note, I have now read 3 different blogs saying MAC makeup brushes are going down hill. That sucks. I have only tried 2 but love both. People seem to have problems with them being very rough and scratchy now, and the brushes with black hairs are leaving dye on peoples faces.

Just talked to my brother. His dog passed away today. He was an old dude but still a shock. About most things my brother is an ass, but he loved that dog. My heart hurts. Yogi was such a sweet boy.

Our building lost power for 45 minutes yesterday. Then we lost water pressure throughout the building today. Then the building caught on fire. Good times...

awww... PerriP, hugs to your brother on his loss.



i think i'm going to have to step away from my political action group - i'm just not enough of a "good feminist" for them.

i'm also a decade older than the next oldest member and have nothing in common with them. lately they've been ignoring my suggestions and offers of help, too.

*sigh*

when i've written blog posts for the website, they get held for one or 2 weeks before they get posted and then a new one goes up a couple of days later and stays for one or 2 weeks.

it's annoying...

Sorry, Perri and triple sorry TNB. When it rains, it pours?

Speaking of, take cover SE! I woke up just in time for severe thunderstorms. At least the tornado watch has expired and the squall line is breaking up when it hits the mountains, but my satellite just went out and 50-60 mph winds are still expected.

IF YOU ARE TRYING TO SAY "MATCH UP WITH," THE WORD IS JIBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WITH A B!!!!!!!!!

Jive, with a v, is African American slang and an African American dance.

You sound so duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuumb!

3b (with 3c tendencies) on modified CG

Okay, so, I think the time has come for me to admit that I have a shoe addiction. It's not crazy, as in hundreds, but it's a lot. And this is despite the fact that 90% of my shoes are faux leather or suede-ish stuff, which means that 99% of the them cost less than $100.

The thing is, I was so sporadically "in the chips" for so long as a result of being a freelancer that I'm indulging myself now that my income is more regular.

I do purge from time to time, but I still have a lot.

Is this really something to worry about? I have savings, investments, and I'm about to join a credit union. I pay all my bills on time. I don't vacation because I'm still fairly new at my job, and I don't want to be away from my dogs for very long (though that's another issue some people may not agree with).

Thoughts?
