Of Time and Tofurky
Posted on 20 November 2012
Over the weekend, I made kale chips, cooked turnips, and pulled dozens of Brussels sprouts off the stalk. After months of travel and stress, this quality time spent with farm-fresh veggies — plus all the cat-couch time, and reading The Age of Miracles, and watching more episodes of Breaking Bad than I care to admit — indicates that things are, at long last, slowing down for me. (Sort of. We won’t get into Thanksgiving.)
On Friday, it looks like I’ll be at Loganberry Books from 2-4pm for a Rust Belt Chic signing. I think we all know I’ll also be stopping by the nearby Bazaar Bizarre, a local indie craft show. I also hope, at some point this weekend, to walk through a glass room full of purple balloons. More later.
For now, I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving. To put you in the spirit (read: to anticipate an event that will surely lead to sobbing), why not read all about The Turkey Wish? Or ditch the tired Turdurken concept and instead dazzle your guests with a Mermuffin? Also, if any fellow vegetarians out there make this or this, please let me know how it goes. See you next week.
