NYT is reporting guilty on 45 charges? Maybe?

Edit: NBC News says the same thing. Guilty on 45 of 48 charges.

Edit again: While I'm happy with the verdict, I'm sick to my stomach. Ugh. How are some people so horrible?

Last night I had a big gala thing to volunteer at at work. It was a catered event, and even though I put in that I was vegan, I was nervous that my meal would be awful. Trevor asked me to stop by his work before I went to the event so he could see me in all my formal wear...when I got there, he had gone to the market and got a brownie for me to have as dessert since I probably wouldn't get anything (and a bottle of kombucha)!!!!!! I melted. What did I do to deserve The Best Husband?

And this morning, my littlest ginger kitty Tristan is following me around like a lost puppy and giving me smooshy, lovey eyes. Again, I feel guilty sometimes that I have such wonderful little creatures in my life and I don't even have to share.

And last night at the work gala, I had lots of people I have worked with over the years ask me if I was still on contract or whether I was hired yet. When I told them I was just extended for another year contract instead of being hired, I had a few people be all, "WHAT?! That's so unfair! I would never want to work with another graphic designer so they better just hire you already!" and then I felt all valuable.

Also at the gala, I was all dressed up and felt genuinely beautiful and comfortable in my own skin. I've had some body image issues re-emerge lately, so it was lovely to be able to feel good about myself.

And in a bit, I'm getting ready and heading off to the farm sanctuary for a BBQ and where I get to see all my favourite farm animals and awesome vegans. And then after that, I get to go see a friend get married.

Life is awesome sometimes.

Aaaand then it all comes crashing down when I just heard that my husband's grandfather just passed away this morning. We loved him so much. :(

random thought: it would be kind of funny to have a vegan bakery that had one token non vegan cupcake.

We saw Alan C.umming* in Macbeth today. It was amazing. He played pretty much every character from the play - it was set in a mental institution and he was committed (you assume from the beginning) after committing a crime. He was fantastic. And he got naked. He's got a pretty rockin' body. Now I'm really annoyed with myself for not seeing him in The Bacchae during the Festival a few years ago.

This all sounds great, but what did they actually give you to eat?

Thanks so, so, so much, guys. It HAS been a rollercoaster day. I woke up this morning and had a little cry of gratitude as I was writing what I first wrote above. Not long after that, I was crying because we lost someone very special to us. we decided to carry on with our day as planned, and headed to the Farm Sanctuary for a fundraising BBQ where I got to meet a couple PPKers and see some other radical vegan friends. And we just returned from seeing a friend marry her love, where I cried with joy for her. Lots of tears today and my heart feels a bit overwhelmed.

Grandpa's funeral will be this week and I think it will take that for it to feel real. When T. told me I just said over and over, "No, he's okay...you're lying."

Oh! And my meal last night was actually awesome. I felt very grateful that someone had obviously took time to make sure I had something good to eat. It was a bit of a typical meal (a balsamic glazed portrabello topped with a mound of quinoa mixed with local roasted peppers and then topped with some asparagus and sprouts, plus a couple black sesame flat breads and some local roasted carrots) but it was so well presented and I really felt touched by the fact that someone obviously tried really hard to make a vegan meal. It was heartening.

ETA: I sent a letter of thanks to the place that put on the event that the meal was at. That's the kind of vegan activism that I think goes a long way - posi shiitake.

UM, whoa that's not what I'd call typical! You must eat really well! Sounds amazing!

I just picked up the chalkboard I had done for biker boy's birthday present and it came out soooo awesome! The photo doesn't do it justice, but you can get an idea.

(Sorry for the huge size. I cropped it and photobucket is refusing to let me make any more edits! Or, user error. Whatever.)

hehe...okay, maybe typical isn't the right word. I just mean that I think the few times I've had a catered meal it's been something with a portabello. Which isn't quite as adventurous as say, being served some sort of Ethiopian curry or whatever (which I guess is more on the mark of what I typically would make for myself). Lovely regardless, and delicious, and appreciated.
