I had a crazy pocket of inflammation near one of my ankles this morning and was like OH NOES MY BODY IS FALLING APART. Then I took two ibuprofen and seriously, I'm jamming my finger right where the hurt was and it's totally gone. Modern medicine is the best part of my day.

Congrats zwingtip!

Happy birthday mr8!

Boyband had a last minute decision to sell posters of us at the show tomorrow. So I just spent the last three hours making the MOST cheesy, 90's style Tiger Beat-esque poster.

I will totally link it at some point. For now, bedddddd timmmmmme.

OMG I want a poster. I'll draw a heart around Mars' face and hang it on the inside of my closet door.

We sold all 20 posters that we printed, and we signed a bunch, too!

That's great, Mars! And I love Poopie's idea.

I hit the nooch jackpot. At Bulk Barn in Nova Scotia, its regular price is a little bit over half what it was in BC. Nooch on everything.

I'm excited because I got arugula and collard microgreens and zucchini blossoms at the farmers market today.

Not excited that my car will cost $800 to fix and I still won't have working air conditioning. I was going to buy a car and just needed this to last out the month, but now my job situation and future employability looks very bad so I have to just fix this. I have the money right now, so there is that, but I had it because I wanted to go to Niagara Falls or somewhere this summer.

But yeah. Squash blossoms! I've always wanted to try them, but squirrels or other brats prevent me from enjoying my own and they aren't usually sold in supermarkets except $8 for a tiny container at Whole Foods. I found a recipe to stuff with cashew cheese, bread and fry.

The farmers market is fun, but all the lettuces are mostly in such vast quantities that we can't eat it all. It's same price for more and nicer, but we end up having to throw food out. The bags of spring mix for $3 are like the clown car of lettuce bags. No matter how much you eat, there is still more in there.

The farmer's market had rainier cherries and then I tripped and fell and bought the prettiest pink peonies.

We bought a new car today! I've never owned anything other than veeerrrrryyyy used cars, so this is super exciting. And it's fancy! A Kia Rio5 EX with all the bells and whistles - heated seats and a rearview camera! I'm going to have a very hard time waiting until Thursday to pick it up.

My guy (not vegan) is interested in learning how to cook a wider variety of vegan things from scratch. He's capable in the kitchen, but very repetitive and cautious because of lack of kitchen confidence. So we've started a new thing where we pick a recipe together, I read it to him step by step, and he does all the making. And I offer help when requested or when he's about to do something that is way wrong or dangerous. Now I have cookies I didn't make AND chana masala is being made right now. Awesome :-)

My next door neighbor made special vegan lumpia just for me as part of the graduation party fixings for her son. I don't remember ever telling her I'm vegan, but apparently I did at some point in the past. It was so sweet of her to do that when she was preparing huge quantities of food for dozens of guests. And, when we left, she went in her freezer and gave me a gallon size ziploc bag full of the rest of the ready-to-cook vegan ones she had prepared in advance. Wow. I was so touched by her thoughtfulness.

That is so awesome.

We are in Vancouver, and Alaska tomorrow. I can't believe the day has finally come. We had an awesome (early) dinner at La Taqueria, bought some chocolates and wine, a few vegan donuts, had a dip in the hotel pool - and hubby is now totally passed out. It's not even 8pm! Though, back home, that makes is almost 11 pm. Considering I woke up at 4:30 today, I am SO TIRED.

Our baggage was under the weight limit, we had turbulence on the plane but nothing too scary. I watched Grand Budapest Hotel.

Everything about today is the best thing about my day.

Moon, have an awesome time in Alaska! I can't remember if you're spending any time in Anchorage, but let me know if you find any tasty things if you do. I'll be there in less than 2 weeks! Alaska is one of my happy places. I can't wait!

I did nothing but eat, sleep, hoop all day. (I mean, I took a shower and brushed my teeth and flossed them. And washed my hands like 40 times, because I'm like that, and threw some stuff away. But substantively.)

I basically kept getting back in bed and then getting up for more hooping. And then I ate ice cream, brushed teeth, and got back in bed. Then up for more hooping.

I feel like I've been living wrong all this time.

It's my birthday tomorrow but we celebrated yesterday. It was the best bday I've had in years. All my BFFs were there and we ate loads of food and Jojo bought a motherloving Smlove. Which I'm excited to eat the remains of today.

ShakeAway has opened in Leicester! We discovered it just after I'd finished a cola, but I went in to double-check they had vegan options and the guy showed me a long list of suitable flavours! This is going to be great for the summer!
