^-^ Yesterday was my dear oldest brother's annual holiday party (gahh like 90 people show up.. how does he do it?)

Leigh talked to his Mom - while she was in the hospital yesterday.. She didn't know when they would let her go home.

O.o!!!!!!!!! I go to Doug&Carole's party and gahh??? walking in the house before us is MY MOTHER & FATHER IN LAW.

This was such a holiday surprise. It turns out , she has congestive heart failure (which my Nurse - sister in law - says like 80% of the seniors she cares for has it)

It was such a delight & relief to see them there.

We drove my parents to the party - gahh I'm so damn lucky to have great parents -- really I can't say how thankful I am for that - I wish everyone of you could meet them..

I managed to actually be somewhat productive..my painful morning thankfully subsided..


baked some "Greek" bread and rolls & I made some vegan (mwhahahah) rolls & tofu/bean enchiladas. I always bake bread as my 'contribution' but ahh the enchiladas were a last minute thing.. I didn't have the energy to make it truly macrobiotic (in my macro recipe - there is no tomato sauce - tomato is a nightshade and most macro recipes exclude it - but I do have a yummy yummy macro tomato like sauce recipe sans tomatoes if anyone cares for it.. ahh it's just time consuming)

So much food at the party! but gahhh like 99.99% of it was not vegan friendly.
A meat lovers fantasy! lol tenderloin/ham/turkey/blahblahblah & every other assorted condiment or entree had some type of cheesey product. so woohoo I drank a lot of wine and ate mostly nothing.. but wine is good! lol\

so..what's a vegan to do? I swear besides the celery&carrot plate, really the only things I could eat was the stuff I brought - and nothing like that to make you feel self concious..


^_^~!!!! While leaving to go to the party, noticed a package in my mailbox... Ahhhhhhh~ it was a most lovely unexpected gift from the exquisite pimpinhyde Such a gorgeous handmade ornament *sniff*



& a big hug to demonesque while I want to forget it.. hahaha thanks for remembering

& do you get the "I'm vegetarian, I only eat chicken & Fish" (oooh Hello ~ clueless, that's not vegetarian LOL )

I always try to bring lots of food with me to share at parties - and hopefully food non veggies will enjoy. I break down on Thanksgiving & Christmas & buy butter & eggs to make a family traditional Greek bread - I don't eat it myself, but it's a small thing I can do for the family.

When I first started into vegetarianism (back in 1980) the reactions I got from people were a lot more hostile. "What's wrong with meat?"
However, when I switched to more strict vegan diet - socially it got a little tougher. I never try to impose my view on anyone~I just feel more comfortable avoiding animal products.. ahh it's a touchy thing at times, isn't it?

hope you won't be reading this late~

Happy birthday! I don't have much of anything else to give, so here's a Laruku birthday ficcie I wrote for you which is, like, 1,500 words too long. #_# Don't expect it to make any sense, because I've never really tried to write the boys as thirty-something-year-old men before, and. Gah. I've just been writing too much of Gakuhai smut lately, and I really needed some sort of an excuse (voila! your birthdate! :P) to vent. The theme is: consciousness. O_o

Btw, this is the unrevised version. The edited one will probably be linked from my site sometime later on, if you don't mind. Hope reading this won't give you too much of a headache (or heartache). :)

It's the demon tongue again. I saw the post nyde made where she detailed Hyde's different eras--someone should compile all the different pictures floating around on the web of Hyde with his tongue out. Off hand, I can think of the NTT behind the scenes footage, the finale PV, the Honey PV... Clearly, Hyde has a major oral fixation.
