Camping 2015!

I just got back from my favorite trip of the year! Camping! This year was just as wonderfully uneventful as always! As camping should be! I took way fewer pictures this year, and decided to soak it in instead. But I took a few for you! The Big Indian.  This 30 ft dude is a… Read more »

Farm Sanctuary Visit

Hi! This past weekend I visited Maple Farm Sanctuary in Mendon, Massachusetts. A Farm Sanctuary is a place where abused, neglected, or saved-from-slaughter farm animals can live out their days safely. A few examples would be Cassie, the dairy cow who was being retired from dairy (meaning, sent to slaughter), she launched her 1,200lb body… Read more »

Vegan Resources

First, a notice  – I am not putting any graphic images in this post. However, some of the videos and sites I am linking to will most likely contain graphic material. You’ve been warned!  So, I’ve had some friends (and strangers!) express curiosity about Veganism. Some, have even gone so far as to ask me… Read more »


You know what?  I love camping. Man, I really do love camping. I love the views, the sounds, the eats!, and oh.. the smells!  Clean dewy mountain air is an incredible smell.  The water there tastes like liquid heaven – and I hate water! I love hiking, and I love the prospect of seeing wild… Read more »

Dear FFF

Dear Funny Fat Friend, You’re the self-deprecating, joke-cracking one. You’re the “Funny Fat Friend”, that’s how you fit in. That’s your schtick and you think it works. I want to tell you the truth here. . . it doesn’t work. No one thinks its funny when you put yourself down. No one thinks its funny… Read more »

If I were to describe myself, it would definitely include the term – anti-social. Despite this, I somehow live a pretty social life.  I certainly can’t complain that I have incredible people who actually want to spend time with me.  This weekend was an exceptionally busy one and it, of course, revolved around food! On… Read more »

Vegan Navigating

I was going to a friend’s house for dinner this past weekend.  I’d already informed her that I was eating vegan, but not to make any special accommodations for me. The very last thing I’d want to do is inconvenience someone, but even worse – I would not want to offend someone by not eating… Read more »

Reverend SweatyGirl & The Big Gay Wedding

I’m back!! I had such a lovely couple of days at the Cape with my favorite people! The wedding was a success. Of course some things went awry, and the weather wasn’t ideal, but overall, it was beautiful and fun and everything they deserved on their wedding day. The grooms looked amazing, their vows were… Read more »

A Wonderful Day

Yesterday, I had a wonderful day. One of those days where I never checked my email or looked at my phone. I didn’t think about my to-do list or work. I played hooky from the office and spent the day with my wonderful ladyfriend Bumbles and her beautiful baby. We shopped and lunched and chatted… Read more »
