I want to be a vegetarian

How can I get President Bush and his adminstration to stop saying things like "I serve at the pleasure of the president." Or, "the U.S. attorneys serve at my pleasure." You are not a king, sir. All you dickheads serve at MY pleasure (and the pleasure of those who read my blog.) It's like nails on a chalkboard.

I gave up meat for Lent, and its been smooth sailing. I'm still eating fish and eggs, and as of yesterday, I'm going to try and give dairy the heave ho as well. Am I the only one who never considered the fact that cow's milk was meant for to turn calves into fat cows and it has naturally occuring growth hormones in it that's not good for humans (especially women) to be drinking? It's interesting that soy milk and yogurt is almost twice as expensive as cow's milk and I'm sure that more to do with our agricultural policy and the dairy lobby than real production costs. Anyway, I'm going to give it a try and I promise to slap any of my friends or family (who serve at my pleasure) with a big, infected, cow udder if they roll their eyes.

This just in. . . Regis is up and doing well after his bypass surgery. Kelly Ripa is acting all choked up and happy, but I think really she wanted the show all to herself.

You say: I want to be a vegetarian

I say:
You better wake up before you do! A good steak beats a plate of string beans anyday.

I know dd2, that's what sucks. Why does meat (especially bacon) taste so good? But I have to give it a whirl.

Vegetarians are homos.

OK, just a quick word of advice about soymilk: Start out by buying VANILLA soymilk. The taste is easier to get used to than regular soymilk.

My favorite brands (I mostly drink soymilk with cereal): Silk Vanilla Soymilk and Westsoy Vanilla Soymilk. I've tried fat free, lite, and full-fat, and my taste buds don't notice the difference.

I know--exciting, huh? *grin*

Good luck being a vegetarian! I can't say I could do it!! :)
