That's really amazing and so brave, CQ! And I'm sure you had an impact on even more people than you know. Congrats!

A new colleague, just finishing her 2nd week is leaving ... today!

She is very unpleasant despite our welcoming kindnesses to her (I bring in CAKE to share most days as well as dishes of fruit) but she is from the north & is going back there.

Her manager (my boss) has e-mailed me to go out for a celebratory drink after work.

CQ, that's so awesome! For what it's worth, all the experiences you've posted here have really opened my eyes to issues I never knew about before. You are definitely helping people with your wisdom and experiences!

Hospital confirmed I'm not pregnant. Not that I thought that I was. But, you know, still good news.

I and FC spent the morning volunteering at the parrot rescue this morning. i didn't take any pics because i was too busy getting filthy/cleaning filth/being a birdie chew toy, but we had a great time. just cleaning up, feeding, watering, and talking with about 100 birds. maybe more, actually. it will be a weekly gig til september so i will post pics.

and now, more good to come. dinner party tonight, so i got to get cooking, concert after, then nature lecture tomorrow morning, then trip to visit new england for a few days. there is a 15 page translation somewhere in there before sunday AM so i will talk to you all after we get back. xo

Yesterday I was at the fabric store and walked up to the cutting counter. There were two employees behind the counter, one person wasn't helping anyone. I walked up to her and put my fabric on the counter and she asked me if I had taken a number. I said no, and she pointed to the number dispenser at the end of the counter. I looked around and there was literally no one waiting in line or even near the counter, I thought that was weird but assumed she didn't want to mess up their system or something. I took the number at which point she proceeds to immediately pickup the phone and broadcasts to the entire store that she will now be helping my number. This woman is standing about 4 feet from me. I nearly burst out laughing but managed to hold it together.

I felt like I was in some sort of indie movie. It was so fantastic and a little surreal. I wish I could have recorded the entire interaction.

Holy crepe. I have an interview for the position I applied for on Tuesday. It's in Seattle. I could actually get it. We could actually move here. This could really happen.

So excited. So nervous. Freaking out.

I'm sure you didn't mean this but I'd like to let everyone know that not everyone from northern England is unpleasant :)

My best thing so far is curry and roti for breakfast.

It's Trans*pride today in Brighton (the first one ever in the UK) and me & Nick spent the morning at the event in the park. There were awesome people everywhere and later we're going to the party.

As well as all of that awesomeness we're about to meet Baps to go to watch the Bloody Ice Cream trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz & The Worlds End) at a cinema with vegan hot dogs, sausage rolls & cake.

I <3 Brighton!

I drove to Berlin to "test" the motorbike I bought recently.

Though I have some thinking to do on what I feel about the bike, it does run faster (in topspeed) than my first motorbike.
(Speedo showed 162 mph which acc. to the sat-nav was 147 mph)

Arrived in Berlin and had Pizza at a Vegan Pizza restaurant.

I thought the best thing about my day was going to be getting a ninja blender (finally, green smoothies again!). But then I went to pay my tuition--which I figured would be the worst part of my day--and found out I got a $1000 scholarship! Woot!

Louzilla that's an awesome surprise.

I had lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a while and picked out new glasses.

My partner and i decided to go out to lunch. I couldn't find anywhere close enough to get there and back before he had to go to work, so we were going to just make something ourselves. Then i found out there was a vegan food truck at an animal sanctuary 15 minutes away! We had awesome jackfruit BBQ sammich, a corndog (i can't remember the last time i had a corndog), and fries with special fry sauce.

We just got the mp3 tracks from my a cappella group's big concert last summer! OHMYGODWESOUNDSOGOOD!! If anybody wants them, send me a message and I'll hook you up. We are not a professional group so we give our music away for free. :)

I bought an Omega Juicer in pristine condition at the thrift store today for $12.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The exact model sells new for $259 on Amazon! It works perfectly and has all attachments - everything is in new condition. I just bought a refurbished one 2 months ago for what I then considered a great deal.

Now I'm trying to decide if I should try to sell it or just keep it for spare parts...
