It’s 2am and I feel a song coming on

It’s 2am. I feel no signs of sleepiness. That pretty much blows. 

I’ve been listening to music – combo of funk (think Rick James) and Christmas tunes (think  . . . well, Christmas). In addition to my easy listening I have been surfing Vegan blogs. I have decided this is my favorite: Rural Vegan.  Other thoughts I have thunk tonight include:

1) Why am I not vegan!?!?!?

2) If I win the lottery I am going to Burning Man every year till I’m really old.

3) Why am I not vegan????!!!!!

2B) Oh, Burning Man and a boob job.

4) I seriously still have not gone vegan? 


I don’t see why this is a consistent theme in my life (the vegan thing, not the boobs or Burning Man). I feel guilty all of the time when I eat and I have lost sleep over the whole veg thing. I really don’t give a flying fig what other people eat but I just can’t understand why if this is so important to me I haven’t made the change. 

Hell, I’m not even a vegetarian anymore. 

And the kicker is, of course, that I never feel better or happier than when I eat a meat free diet so once again the question is why am I not doing this full time?

Maybe it isn’t a cold-turkey (ha) thing. Maybe not for me at least – I’m beyond having something gross me out so bad that I never touch it again. It will have to be a state of mind that drives me to put my money where my mouth is. 

I know if Bob and Jenna heard me say all of this they would kick me in the ass and tell me to get on with being vegan so I think I’ll just continue to listen to their podcast and see what happens.

I’m sorry I haven’t seen this sooner, but thanks for the accolade! Perhaps you just need some encouragement to make the veg*n plunge? Would me shouting “DO IT” help? 😉

Thanks again!

your post made me laugh. considering the fact that i’m REALLY tired, this definitely woke me up.

and being vegan is pretty easy i’ve noticed. yeah, i mean, when i look at my mom bbq pulled pork (the best thing on earth) or her italian meatloaf (another winner), i think- wow, i need to put that in my mouth now!! but i’ve come to thinking that i don’t want to eat anything that have a face. it just seems weird now.
