Vegetarian Times

Realized this morning that I've been vegetarian for 1/2 my life now.

Total mileage yesterday: 5.5

Today I'm taking a break from running to give my ankles, shins & hips a rest before beginning again tomorrow. The 5K is Thursday.

6/12* Lemon Grass "Ice Cream"

  • 2 cups yoghurt

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 stalk lemon grass

  • Chop the lemon grass & blanch it. Mix ingredients. Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions.

    Feel free to substitute all dairy ingredients with non-fat or non-dairy. Or substitute sugar with maple syrup or some other sweetener. I prefer to use vanilla-flavored rice milk & soy yoghurt for a vegan dessert.

    * This recipe was inspired by a similar version served at Cafe Zurawia 6/12 in Warsaw, Poland.

Congratulations to my queer brothers & sisters in Massachusetts who were (finally) granted legal marriages yesterday. One day, and the world has not ended yet ... unless you're considering what's happening in Iraq (the Iraqi Council President was murdered by a suicide bomber) or Israel (Israel attacked a Palestinian refugee camp and murdered at least 12 people). But those things have nothing in common with queer marriages in MA . . . unless you consider that the administration(s) that brought about the situations in Israel & Iraq is/are against queer marriage--which must mean that queer marriage is a good thing. As one of my more insightful students argued: sometimes the slippery slope slides up.

I'm sorry, Mr. Bowie, but you will just have to find someone else to make your intolerably unlistenable last album interesting. Your Reality is sad & poor.

Almost ready to release my new site to the world: Skajlab V. I started 5 years ago this month during my last few weeks in Japan. And now it's all sleek & exciting (I hope), and much more interesting (I hope). If not, tell me! I'm a much more interesting person in-person than I've ever been online. And I'm a demon in the sack....
