I have an aversion to the word “resolutions”, for whatever reason, so instead I try to come up with goals for the year ahead – preferably with steps toward achieving them.

I do NOT understand why people ask me what I eat when they discover or remember I am a vegetarian.
Just because I don’t eat meat doesn’t mean there is nothing for me to eat…. I’m not forced to eat twigs and small rocks and dirt and grass. If you can see me, it is QUITE obvious I am not lacking food to consume - in fact, it’s quite obvious I overeat.
My friend, her niece, and I attended Veggie Fest this weekend. I had a great time!
A man was handing out suntan lotion samples at the gate, which was perfect for pale people like me that forgot to apply protection before venturing outdoors. We started by visiting some of the informational booths, and collected information and free samples. Then we ventured to the food booths. My friend and I had some rice curry while her niece had a slice of spinach pizza. It was all delicious. We overheard one man asking (grumpily) “What, is it all vegetarian food?” Yes. It’s VEGGIE fest. A booth selling racks of ribs or turkey legs would NOT go over well, dude. I’m a pickier eater than most – honestly, I can’t relish the idea of eating even the “fake meat” – if it looks like meat and tastes like meat – well, I get the “warm spits” as my friend calls it, and I’ll pass in favor of something else.
