Spent the day at a Pet Valu telling people how awesome rats are, how important it is to keep them in pairs/groups, and to talk to people about why adopting them is important (as opposed to buying). Lots of people were excited to meet them and amazed by the factoids on the info table. Plus we may have rehomed a few rats in the rescue :)

Oh, and a charity BBQ that offered vegan burgers!

Long, hard talk with bff about the 'bff breakup' email she sent about 3 weeks ago. Super impressed at how two people could have misunderstood each other so thoroughly. Super impressed that we're both committed to talking (slowly) and working shiitake out (also slowly).

Ran a race at a really good pace (for me!) in Central Park this morning! Followed by vegan brunch with a friend. Good times.

I had a most totally super awesome weekend. First of all, the weather was glorious. But, I spent most of the weekend indoors taking an amazing yoga workshop yesterday and today with a truly lovely and insightful teacher from Israel. She came to California 3-4 years ago, and I LOVED her classes, and it is so wonderful that she came back. I am all glowy now. Also, really pooped! :)

I finally found Thumbs Up bars for sale! Since they came out forever ago I have been checking for them anytime I go to a store that carries Go Max Go candy and never saw them until today. Score! I take vegan candy very seriously.

Nice! I've been keeping an eye out every time I go to Whole Foods but they don't have them yet. :(

The Scottish Sock Puppet thread in the Living Room is the best thing about my day today.

Gave a presentation to governors and senior management and pretty much nailed it.

I graded my unit tests and the average was a C+. Only one kid failed!!! It wasn't a super easy test or anything, and most kids had failed the quizzes in the unit, so I was dreading grading them.

I guess a third of them flunking for the quarter scared them into looking at their notes and putting in an effort for a flipping change. This is so awesome, but Im annoyed I had to nag, harangue, and flunk the, to get these results. Hopefully this nice achievement will give them a boost to keep this up for another two months.

I'm bringing them hummus, tortilla chips, carrots, and chocolate chip cookies tomorrow.

Sad but true: after the first class had an average of 78%, I actually went back through to make sure I hadn't don't sometching weird in my grading. Please note this is not because I'm shocked they are capable--they are very capable of doing good things.

my gf getting excited about a song on Dancing with the Stars. Then showing me a youtube video (she hates youtube videos!) of an old vhs that had the song on it.

Actually had kind of a great day-- spent most of it outdoors with my kids, including garden puttering and visiting with a favorite set of friends.

Then tonight I had a major breakthrough in a project that's due in oh, 9 days, that I felt like I was just going in pointless circles with. Hooray!

I just went out and lay in the sun! Topless! Without anyone breaking down and crying or being sick! Yay for confidence and yay for sunshine.

Also, funnily enough I just bid for a squat rack on eBay. I wish I had more space... 8ball, are you on VeganFitness or VBB? I've seen a few people from here on VF

I'm registered on VeganFitness but haven't been on it in a while. It went very quiet over there around Christmas!

If you're in the market for a squat frame there's the Maximuscle one from Argos, which is the one I bought. It was simple to put together and doesn't take up much space but I can't vouch for durability just yet.


My other best thing was that I saw horses! It was at a St George's Day Parade gathering on Forest Recreation ground but horses none the less, all dressed up in livery for a display with the knights.

Cool, cheers. VF is quite slow still, but I find VFF a bit grating.

Space is a real issue in my tiny, tiny spare room, so I need something tiny or collapsible. Or cheap. Really cheap would be nice.

Birds custard ice cream. 500ml custard, 1 can of coconut milk, sugar to taste. Best ice cream I've made.

Oh that sounds good <3

Wonderful sunny hike with my toddler and friends around a lake and a lunch of sandwiches!
