Day 14 - Locate Recipes

Today was a banner day. I got my first fan letter.  A very nice man named Mike took the time to email me and let me know how much he enjoys my little blog, and even asked my advice on something.

I'm an effin' ROCK STAR.  Or at least I was for, oh, 20 seconds.  Here's how it went down.

So, I was at work, slaving away for The Man, and made a brief little pop into my yahoo mail account.  Don't worry, my boss doesn't read this.  Anyhow, what to my wondering eyes appears, but this sweet little email from My New Best Friend Mike.  The corners of my mouth curled up, up, up as I read through it.  At the end, I regally announced to everyone and no one in particular, from a desk that suddenly seemed to feel a little more like a royal throne...

"Hey, I just got blog fan mail  from a guy."

At this point, my friend Betty pipes up with, "What could YOU have said that a MAN would find interesting?"

I've never come so close to telling someone to f*** off in an office setting in my young life.  (As I did 4 years in the Navy, that's saying A LOT.)  Had there not been a lobbyful of customers within earshot, I would have.  Instead, all I could do was sputter, producing an array of guttural noises that meant nothing on their own, but in the context of the situation, were understood by everyone within earshot.

Betty was sitting at Susie's desk.  I thought Susie was going to pee her pants.  Her entire body shook for a good 30 seconds.  Betty now claims she was misunderstood ... bad Betty.  Bad, bad Betty. 

So that was my day.  I'm at home, dateless, with nothing to say that any man would find of interest.

I will turn instead to Sarah, who is always there for me, as she is saved on my hard drive.

"Go to your local library or bookstore and look through the vegan cookbook section. Borrow or buy a book that looks good to you. Also go online and research vegan recipes."
Sarah Taylor. Vegan in 30 Days: Get Healthy. Save the World. (Kindle Locations 349-350). Kindle Edition.

Oh, this is so easy.  So, so easy.  In my mailbox today was a copy of "The Kind Life," written by that girl from the Aerosmith video.  Nailed it.  For those of you without a library card, meet your new best friend, Mr. Google.

Hey, tomorrow is field trip day!  Are you guys stoked?
