5 Things. Or you know, 10 or 15.

It's friday again! woooooo!

In recent news, I've finally started talking on the ppk (I am upforair, hear me spod!), and I've also been tagged again to reveal 5 things about myself - by S. of The Student Stomach, AND Chelsea from No Whey Jose!, and apparently there's no insisting that I've already done this, oh no - I must bore you once more with the randomest of random me-facts that I can think of. The meme is cumulative! And so I list...

1. I used to have dreads until pretty recently. Loooooooong dreads. (about six years of growth maybe?)

2. As a kid I would eat ANYTHING if it was chocolate. Baking chocolate, waxy wedding favours hidden in the closet, smarties that were most definitely rancid, leftover dried up frosting, and yes, even easter eggs....

3. I like to go to summer festivals in the woods, and camp, and make vegan food, and dance to psy-trance music. The OM reunion festival especially.

4. My favourite band is Depeche Mode. (I'm aware of how awful that is)

5. I'm currently trying to quit smoking - I smoked half a pack a day for 7 years, but I've cut it down to 3 or 4 a day in the last few months. The only problem is stopping entirely, 'cause every time I try I get insomnia so bad I sleep maybe an hour a night. :/

6. I wanna be famous. For art! I used to stress over what direction my life should take (art or food? ART OR FOOD, WOMAN?!). But now I hardly think it matters. Hell, if I work in a bakery to pay the rent and keep my art a pure and personal thing, that's just great with me!

7. I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue.

8. I'm currently debating moving out of my 2-bedroom to live in a 20-person coop downtown. They dumpster dive, make collective vegan meals, run workshops, have a bike room, compost room, dj booth, library, meditation wing....... I dunno. Maybe. It's all pretty inspiring, but I'd have to leave Satchmo-cat behind.... and I've been known to REALLY like my alone time. We'll see.

9. My sister and I burst into song pretty constantly. Our favourite is rambling off all the lyrics to REMs "it's the end of the world as we know it" while not breaking a sweat. :)

10. I've never tried vegan cheese!

Whew! Okay, that was fun. Now I suppose I must taggggg... Stonielove, Comfort Food Vegan, Seitan Is My Motor, Rural Vegan, VeganCowGirl, To Live and Eat in LA, rocket ship go!, Hugger Food, Bigmouth Strikes Again, Vegan Deliciousness, and ummm... has anyone tagged Cakespy yet? If I oopsed and any of you guys have already done this, well guess what, you have to do it again just like I did! It's the neverending internet meme of better acquaintance!! ("noooooooo!", she says dramatically)

Er right, sorry. I made Susan's tofu quiches too, but I'll wait for tomorrow to take sunlit pictures. They were so quichey!

Hey, there's nothing wrong with Depeche Mode! Vegan cheese, on the other hand, you are not missing out on!

Anardana said...

Whaaaaat that's so funny I just PMed you on the PPK about Adam Ant!

Carrie said...

I've been trying to quit smoking too. I get down to only a handful a day, but like you I get awful insomnia if I quite altogether.

Cakespy said...

Good luck quitting smoking. I have a friend who I recently helped out, and man, even though it was a guy he turned into a BITCH. ;-)

Thank you for the tag too! We have to get to that but there is trouble co-ordinating cos there are so many of us and momma cakespy doesn't understand what a "meme" is.

Never tried vegan cheese!?

Sarah P said...

I totally agree with rural vegan. depeche mode is great. vegan cheese is not.

Vegan_Noodle said...

hehe, DM has long been on eof my favorite bands as well.
The coop living sounds kinda cool, but yeah, quiet time is nice too.
Best of luck quitting smoking!
Oh, and I just got two vegan cheeses to try out...Cheezly and Teese...maybe one of them will be worth it!

I stayed with some friends in a coop like the one you described, I visited for about a week, and it was fun but I really needed down time. I don't know about you, but I'm too much of an introvert for that kind of living. But I have utmost respect for people that do it! If you don't move in, can you still dumpster dive and hang out with them all the time?
