Some updates.

Sooo...I opened a new Twitter account. I can be tweeted/twat at @downhomevegan. So far, I haven't said much. I'm kind of bewildered when it comes to Twitter. All the posts look like hieroglyphics, what with the hashmarks and such. But, I figured I'd better get on it (that, and I snapped up @downhomevegan before someone else did), since the Oxford Concise has now added "retweet" to the dictionary. It has also decided that "cassette" no longer deserves an entry, which leaves me feeling OLD AS FUCK. Speaking of which, can anyone recommend a good vegan wrinkle cream?

This Saturday, Animal Rights Coalition will be holding the event "Cupcakes for Their Sake" at noon at Ethique Nouveau. Make sure you get down there early, because every CFTS event has seen all the goodies get swooped up pretty quick. I hear there are peanut butter cup cuppers this time. I am so there!

I haven't been doing a lot of cooking lately, but I'm planning to get back on that so I'm not burned out the first week of Vegan MoFo. I've already got ideas for a theme week. I'll bet you can't take the suspense!

The Minnesota State Fair starts tomorrow. Besides the Giant Naked Pickle on a stick, and the new category in the cooking competition, what the hell can a vegan eat there? I want to see some carnies and maybe ride the rapids, and barf after a trip down the giant slide. If there's something I'm missing, let me know. Otherwise, I think I'll stay home. I saw this billboard on the side of a bus and it bummed me the hell out:


There is so much I could say...that I'm speechless.
