La Vegetariana Loca

Here are some random ramblings of a girl that will probably end up in an insane asylum sometime in her near future...Kookookachoo. She loves her Queen, she loves her Beatles and her Who and her Zeppy and her music in general. She loves her writing. She loves love. And she loves you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Eat plenty of mashed potatoes and green beans and all those other lovely veggies. =]

Oh, and I also wanted to say...

No, I didn't forget Freddie Mercury's death date. It was this past Monday. I am fully aware that I didn't post anything on here the second it happened. I'm sorry for that.

He's been gone now for 17 years, and surprisingly, I'm not sad anymore. I guess that's why I didn't really focus on it on Monday: it's made me so sad in the past that I didn't want to drag myself down into that again.

I am still collecting money! I know I generally donate it around his deathdate, but I think I'm going to wait just a little bit longer to see if I can get any last minute donations! :) For those of you that don't know, every year (and this is the third year I've done this) I collect spare change from people that they otherwise would do nothing with and roll it up and donate it to help with various AIDS organizations, such as The Mercury Phoenix Trust or 46664. All that change really adds up: last year I raised over $200. SO. If you can get in contact with me physically, please, if you have any spare change, help me out. :) It would be greatly apprectiated.

If you can't do that, however, there are other easy ways you can donate and help out with the fight against AIDS. I think even Starbucks has partnered up with (RED), which helps get medicine to people with AIDS. So you don't even really have to donate a chunk of money. Just go get a cup of coffee! ;)

Let's see...

For this Thanksgiving, I also want to challenge you. Last Thanksgiving marks the anniversary (well, nearly, anyway) of when I gave up eating meat. I had been a newborn vegetarian on Thanksgiving, but did I eat turkey? No. I didn't. Why? Well, I'm sorry to say this, but many turkeys are poorly mistreated. Factory farms are not like the idealized farms we read about as children. Turkeys--and other animals, for that matter--are kept in tiny containers and oftentimes pumped with so many steroids and other fattening foods that they are unable to stand, and many times turkeys are killed by being thrown in boiling water or having their throats slit while they're still alive.

Sorry to burst your bubble, folks.

If you can somehow find a turkey that was raised humanely--maybe that you shot yourself or something--that's great for you. But most people don't roll that way. So, to all of the people that are about to go to the grocery store and pick up a turkey for the dinner table, I want to give them a challenge: DON'T. Don't eat turkey this Thanksgiving. Sure, eat the other things. But skip out on the meet. Besides helping fight against animal cruelty, you're less likely to be hit with a food coma before you even get to the pumpkin pie. And that's just depressing.

(By the way, before I get people saying how they can't go vegetarian because they like meat too much or because they were raised in the south, I just want to point out that...well...I come from a Southern, Baptist family that lives on fried chicken and all of it's affiliates. Not saying that you HAVE to go vegetarian--I'm not mean like that--just saying that yes, Virginia, it's possible!)

ANYWAY! Happy Thanksgiving, folks! And don't forget to help the AIDS cause!

PS: Here's a link for some vegan Thanksgiving recipes. =]
No, I'm not vegan...Yet. *cue evil laugh*

AND (I'll leave when I wanna!...If you know what song that's from, you get points.) since I probably won't be able to get back on here for a little while (NANOWRIMO IS EATING MY BRAAAINS!!!), here's the video of the week:

This was my favorite song when I was about four years old. I even went through a suit wearing stage because of Annie Lennox! (Maybe that shouldn't be past-tense.XD) I even wanted to buzz my hair and dye it orange for a while...then Britney Spears buzzed her hair first, and bless her heart, but I don't want to do it anymore!

See you guys around!
