Every. Time.

No paint job is complete without rubbing your head against a freshly painted wall.

Don't mind if I do!


This is how I test a color, sporadically spread it around the room and live with the splashes for a week. I've been on the fence but am going paint it this color over the weekend.

Back in May of 2010 I had an idea which compelled me to start a second blog, Four Day Vegan, and you can follow that link to see what a blog looks like in its naked and virgin state.

See what I mean? Untouched. No posts.

I was surprised to learn that I've been contemplating the same idea since 2010: eat a plant-based diet for ninety days. (Subtitled: And document something every fourth day, because, I believe that I will spend 4-5 hours in the kitchen on Wednesdays and then again on either Saturday or Sunday depending on what sort of plans that might come up each weekend, and, that should leave me with about two minutes of kitchen time on each of the other five days a week.) 

The holdup? My undying love for and obsession with cheese has made me not want to not eat cheese for a whole three months. And I'm formally stating my cheese boycott now because I'm a pretty big deal on this blog this is a blog about whatever.

Imagining myself adhere to such food restrictions felt daunting, but after some coaching from Dogfood, I now know how to make sunbutter. And I can chop up a bunch of vegetables, then mix them with kimchi. And lastly, I can throw a variety of things into this particular Ninja and then drink or eat whatever concoction I create.

In the last three days alone, I've consumed a bunch of purple kale, a red pepper, yellow pepper, red onion, half a bunch of green onions, half a bunch of cilantro, a pint of red/orange/yellow cherry tomatoes, raspberries, some soy yogurt, a 16oz jar of kimchi, at least a cup of sunflower seeds, a third or more of a jar of almond butter, some oatmeal, flax meal, hemp protein. Geez this blog post is dragging on forever. Bye.

Finding a new way to Eff up

I thought I had messed up my morning coffee in every possible way, but then I discovered a new mistake.

So last night, I got everything all ready for the morning. I cleaned the coffee pot; I put in a new filter; I added the coffee and water; and then I jumped in the shower. 

And then I showered, shaved, moisturized, put on my PJs, turned on Columbo, then went into the kitchen and was greeted by a fresh cup of coffee.

D'oh! Without realizing it, I pressed the ON button.

Paint (Scrape)

Artistically speaking, I don't amount to much of a painter. Paint the edges of a room? Without tape? And no drop cloth? 

Mastered it.

And please know that paint comes off of glass super easily. It becomes easier and easier to scrape off with age.

In this first, unedited, iphone photo,  notice this old paint along the edges of the window, on the glass.

Notice how the photo is of crappy quality and unedited? Now, do you see how there's paint along the edge of the window's glass?

Oh wait, I made you doze off for two minutes and while you were sleeping, I made all that dried paint disappear.

Oh wait, there it is again.

Oops, it's actually all gone already.
