Sweet tooth

if i posted a secret to www.postsecret.com it would include a photo of these guys:


and the comment "i wish i wasn't addicted."

Earth Day Fair was fantastic! Met some great vegans and some future vegans while hangin' at the Farm Sanctuary table. Had some good tablemates with me passing on the "gospel" of kindness.

Mattie & I had such a happy day in sunny and breezy Balboa Park. Peter ran to the park and hung out for a while, too, which was a nice surprise.

I met some nice peeps from http://animalacres.org/ and Farm Sanctuary booth neighbors http://www.animalsasia.org/ and nearby http://labrescuers.org/ (where Peter and Heidi met!). Got some free shwag from http://www.kashi.com/index.aspx and http://www.nakedjuice.com/ too.

I reconnected with friends and bought a "Friend not Food" piggy shirt from http://aprl.org/ who were next door to a mini version of one of my fave eateries in SoCal: http://sipz.com/ where Peter and i chowed down on some amazing BBQ!

I also heard about this event http://www.worldfestevents.com/ which evidently was held Saturday in Los Angeles. Seems as though that was also quite the vegtastic scene... maybe i go next year!?

If I hadn't've bought the above marshmallows at http://www.allveganshopping.com/ the day before, i would've indulged yet again at their booth... Heh. OK, that's not entirely true. Actually, i was gonna buy another bag but they weren't sellin' 'em there!

Sunny & breezy...ahh, Balboa Park a beautiful setting for what sounds like a perfect Earth Day. I want one of those t-shirts - thanks for the links.

KleoPatra said...

vicki, balboa park is such a treasure, as you know... i can't imagine Earth Day anywhere else, tho i know festivals and fairs are held all over the place.

i am wearing the shirt at work tonight... it's orange and long-sleeved with a cartoon pink pig. the APRL store next to SIPZ will have more shirts... you can let me know... (e-mail me!)

Yeah! I dig those mallows, sadly I never made anything with them, but I did roast them over the grill.

KleoPatra said...

Jess, mine never last long enough to do anything but snack on 'em... how did they stack up to yer roastin'?
