Thankful for my family.

I took this video on Thanksgiving. It captures the holiday for me. Family, food and pretty ear rings.

A few footnotes:

Mark is my brother. He’s me in opposite land. (And he’s always got a smart comment).

One family was a couple hours late, but total we had 23 people.

The tofurky tastes WAY better than it looks. Also, the spinach dip was amazing!

Gladstone is my sister’s dad.

Bonding with my mom

My mom and I walk into Wal-mart, with a ‘holy crap we have to pee’ attitude and bolt to the bathroom.

We rush right past a group of women nearby – why are they just STANDING there, where pee is bursting to come out?

Then, into the bathroom – which seems just a little ickier than the usual public restroom.

And there, to the left.

The urinals.


Holy crap.

We have to leave.

The large group of women -who were in front of the correct bathroom – look at us like we’re crazy and/or stupid.

My mom and I decide to hold it until we can get to the bathrooms by electronics.

a heavily weighted topic

i was talking to my 72-year-old great-uncle today about how i read this book and have since become vegan.

him: what’s veegaaon?

me: Basically i don’t eat meat. or eggs. or butter. or chesse. or anything from an animal. in other words, everything i eat comes from a plant

him: that sounds hard

me: well not really. also, I’ve actually been a vegetarian for about six years, so i had already given up meat.

him: if that’s true, how come you have so much weight on you?

me: (crying on the inside). well, umm, I guess im trying to lose it.

I supposse when I’m 72 i won’t care about tact any more either.

UPDATE: just so you know, I have lost about 12 pounds since becoming vegan. if you were wondering.
