I did not cook the vegan meals I said I was going to tonight. I got home far too late from working the good ole county fair to go to the grocery store to buy things I don’t like, to cook them into food that I won’t like, to eat for your enjoyment. Sorry.

I am going to the store before I head to the fair tomorrow in order to purchase things I don’t like, to cook into things I won’t like, to eat for your enjoyment. That should be interesting.

I’ve added something else to my bucket list for 2012. I would like to somehow make the DAR on thechive.com.

I don’t think it’s going to be very easy to do, however I think that if I do something insane enough (or surround myself with hot enough women) I’ll get on there.

I went to the fair, to the gym, and back to the fair. How f*cking exciting is that?  I’m going to cut to the quick in tonight’s post and surpass all the B.S. about today that is just soul-crushingly boring, in order to bring you news of the highest order. I ate another vegan burrito today. It was delicious again. More importantly:

I don’t have the slightest clue what I did in a past life, but lately, karma has been coming up BIG for Benny boy. First and foremost, Mr. Cary and his lovely wife stopped by my booth out at the fair and gave me an all vegan cupcake they got for me in Chicago. There are far too many things I need to say about this. Number one…this is how far away Chicago is from me:

That cupcake traveled a LONG friggin way. Just to give it to me. Because I’m stupid and became vegan for one week. Do you realize how awesome you have to be to take care enough to transport a vegan confection 1500 miles 150 miles like, a really long way to someone who didn’t even beg you to do so? All of you stop what you are doing and go to their individual blog and read them as a favor to me. Actually, stop reading my blog and just start reading theirs, they are cooler than me anyway, and they probably drop the F bomb a LOT less often (well maybe not Rinnie).

Numero Dos: The cupcake was delicious. It tasted like full on lemon sponge cake with some kind of super icing. I’m pretty sure that cupcake is so amazing that it cures all forms of erectile dysfunction (here’s hoping). Here is the cupcake before I ate it (almost in one bite):

I asked my friend to take a picture of me as I was eating said cupcake:

What I did not know was that she was going to keep taking pictures:

And lastly:

Notice any similarities between the picture above and this picture?:

So that was a thing that happened to me today that I cannot even explain in stupid blog form how awesome it was. Thank you very much Mr. and Mrs. Kirk. That was super awesome of you guys.

If that wasn’t enough, directly after I got done with that badass Kerpcake…I got this delivered:

That would be a fruit slushie that was available for purchase just outside the building our booth is in. The girl that works in the tent walked over to me and said “We made this extra, and we thought you’d like it.” They even let me know that it was vegan friendly! I don’t know those ladies, I don’t know anything about them, I just know they are good people. I joked with them yesterday about something (for the life of me I can’t remember what, but being stupid and vegan came up) They remembered that and thought enough to drop it off to me. Like I said, I have no idea what I did to deserve this treatment, but I’m going to try to keep it up.

It probably has something to do with me being nice to my friend Nick, who still doesn’t read my blog, and doesn’t remember that his wedding day (which I’m attending) is also my birthday. I’ve told him 4 times that was the case, he swears he has never been told.

I have to say, if every day was like today, I could easily be vegan forever. Real talk though, I don’t think being vegan is healthy in the least. I think as humans/animals, we need to eat other animals. If plants only was the best way, wouldn’t lions and tigers and bears eat carrots in the wild? There has to be something innately good about meat. My cousin Jolie commented the other day about eating free range beef and eggs and whatnot and I think I agree with that 100%. Whenever I can, I’m going to make a solid attempt to eat organic meat and dairy. I don’t think we as people should solely eat things that have been all steroided up and hormonally enhanced. Natural has got to be better, right? I just hope Jack Daniels is natural.

I referenced TheChive.com earlier…this is an example of the stuff they post (if you watch any of it, watch ALL of it) It’ll get your motor running:

    Maybe you deserve the cupcake and smoothie because of your RAOK and volunteering… Like the insurance commercial or that movie Pay It Forward.

    Damn it! So mad the Kirk’s stopped by and I was gone!!!!!! Yesterday was super boring. Tonight is the Nuge though. #MulletTown should be in full effect!!!!

  3. I think you made an excellent point when you went from Vegan sucks to there’s gotta be a better way to consume meat products then just blindedly eating whatever is handed to you (to be more specific you mentioned free range & organic.) I agree 100%. I was a pescatarian for 2 years up until about two months ago and then I decided if I was going to eat meat then it has to be high quality. I also mindfully choose when I would eat meat and when I wouldn’t instead of eating McDonald’s barf burgers on a weekly basis like I was doing FOR YEARS. I highly highly highly recommend watching the movie “Food Inc.” This movie isn’t one of those annoying docu’s that try to scare you into not eating meat, it just makes you think about where your food is coming from which is quite important. The most life changing scene for me is watching how most cows that are consumed in the US are stuck in tiny stalls until they are slaughtered and are forced to eat nothing but cornmeal packed with hormones = we eat a bunch of friggin hormones = disease/cancer. Ummmmm NO thanks. Free range cows eating grass is the only way I will take my hamburger, thank you very much. Wow, sorry this was such a long response. Please watch Food Inc. or I’m not watching the Princess Bride. Deal? Deal.
