In which I test out my new webcam and talk briefly about the nifty vegan cookbooks I painstakingly selected from the local library. Whee!
As it turns out, watching dozens of documentaries about health can turn you into a lunatic. Who knew? They should really make a documentary about that.
INTERLUDE! In which I demonstrate some truly awful Chinese and a brief whining tantrum in both Japanese and English.
Also, to give this the authentic feel of a Chinese film badly dubbed into English, I have arranged for my video editing program to randomly refuse to sync my lips to my words. So very much to enjoy in this video…!
In which I discuss the ravages days of Thanksgiving food has wreaked upon my stomach and the methods I’ve undertaken to reverse the horror. Also, there is some discussion of fruit juice, giant salads, cauliflower-related injuries, and deformed spring rolls, plus a bonus ramble regarding my hair. Enjoy. :P
Today, I discuss such riveting topics as my failures at time management in online ESL lessons, what I ate for Thanksgiving, queer representation (or lack thereof) on “The Good Place,” and Darla’s new gnawing target, the Christmas tree. Also, I talk about grocery shopping, because I work from home now and grocery shopping is apparently a major highlight of any day.
Bonus (?): Photos of my Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner~~
Part I: The hopeful beginning, when I still suspect something edible may come out of this experiment.
Part II: Reality comes crashing down on our intrepid young (?) baking hero as she looks in horror at the Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru situation in her oven.
Oh, well. I ate the carrot sticks (along with some Trisuits and yellow bell peppers) with the remainder of my tofu nacho cheese spread, and that made for an excellent, non-burnt morning snack. Darla, on the other hand, promptly leapt up onto the stove and ate the blackened granola with great relish, because she is Darla.
In which laziness leads to my making homemade cashew milk, I reveal my true feelings on the presence of peanuts in muesli, and Darla tries to eat everything in sight, including a used tissue and a soggy tea bag. Also, there is **natural light!** Though now, less than an hour later, the sky has gone gray and disgusting again, so…thanks for that false hope, Chicago. Thanks.
