Just a quick one - bake sale, trivia night FUN

Hey all! I'm finally over my cold. started working out last week, getting back in the groove of things and BAM! I woke up to massive shoulder/arm pain this past Sunday. will it ever end? I'm sure it will, but right now, I'm taking drugs at night, icing throughout the day and whining like a baby to Andy. It does feel slightly better, so I'm hoping I'm good for this weekend.
side note: I had to turn off anonymous commenting because some stupidheads are making lame-o viagra/spammy type comments. I tried comment moderation, but it's not worth wading through all that junk.
Here is a calendar of some of the things I'll be up to, that y'all could be up to too.

Vegfest shift: Sunday, April 11th: volunteering at Vegfest for their AM shift w/ Andrea. Then in the afternoon at the NARN table for an hour or so. vegfest is also on Saturday. if you go, stop by the NARN table and check it out!

In prep for the NARN table, I put a ton of Why Vegans inside seattle vegan restaurant guides. How, w/ my shoulder issue? By very carefully laying down in my la-z-y boy only using my left hand. w/ my right arm imobilized.

Chocolate Shoe Box: Saturday, April 17th from 11 am - 2 pm. The grand opening of one of my awesome friend's vegan shoe and chocolate store in Seattle, The Chocolate Shoe Box. Woohoo!

Vegan Bake Sale: Saturday April 24th: I'm coordinating another vegan bake sale at Sidecar for the Pigs Peace Sanctuary. If you want to bake (I'll send good karma your way - well even if you don't, I will send it), please email me: seattlebakesale [at] hotmail [dot] com.

This is part of the worldwide vegan bake sale. If you're not in Seattle, check out their site, and see if there is a sale near you.

5270 B University Way NE, Seattle
Both Sat & Sun 1 - 8 PM

Here's the poster I designed. And yes, the food pics are things I've made ;).

NARN Trivia Night: Saturday May 22nd: I'm coordinating a Trivia Night fundraiser for NARN. Should be a blast! I'll even be reading a round of trivia :). In case you didn't already know it, NARN is Seattle's animal rights org and they do awesome things like vegan outreach, protesting, and many other things to support the animals/raise awareness. Trivia night starts at 8 PM. Click here for more info & to RSVP.

Another one of my creations. Somehow my posters have a certain vibe to them.

There are many more fun NARN fundraising events that I'll be working on this year. stay tuned. I'll also be doing other events w/ them. Come check them out, you'll be glad you did. Their event calendar has tons of things on it, something for everyone. If you're shy and want a buddy to hang w/ let me know and we can go together.


I have no idea why I waited so long to try Vegan w/ a Vengeance's Phad Thai recipe. It's spot on! And fast! Since it's just the 2 of us, I prep for a full batch, cook 1/2 one night, then the other 1/2 the second night. they are not kidding when they say you have to make a full batch in 2 wok sessions. It makes a mountain of phad thai deliciousness.


Here's the obligatory cat pic section. Yeah, I know some of you skip all the blathering and scroll straight to the cat/Kobie pix. feelings not hurt :).

Who is more demented? The groomer, the groomees or the photographer? Tubs is styling because he can groom both worms (Peepa, The Judge) at once. Yes, part of his grooming is to "nibble" on their dirty ears (pic 2 & 3).

PS. I've had all the typing my shoulder can take tonight. I'll be a checking your blogs out tomorrow and Friday. gotta limit myself, sadly.

Sure hope your shoulder is better before Sunday. We could be lifting some heavy samples. :)

Lucky for you that Tubs is taking over your grooming responsibilities while you're recovering.

Kitty grooming is tooooooo cute!
Hope your shoulder gets better soon.
