|Interesting farm info
If animals were treated humanely during their lives and not full of hormones, chemicals, and pesticides, I'd eat more meat instead of the mostly vegetarian diet I eat now.
I found this site
I would also rather pay a little more to support a family run farm than Big Agriculture. Current Mood: grateful
|There's a reason they are called "donorcycles"
My dad and his friend Kyle had just been passed by these folks while riding their Harleys and were only a bit behind them when the accident happened: Crash Ends Bloomington Couples' Motorcycle Tradition( Text hereCollapse )
My dad and Kyle immediately locked their brakes, parked their bikes on the roadside, and helped to detour traffic around the accident until the police and medics got there. My dad is having trouble sleeping because he actually saw the accident happen.
And he's really bitter about humanity right now. People were arguing with him about driving through the wreckage - with dead bodies on the road
- until he changed his line of reasoning for taking another route and told people that their tires would go flat from all the debris. Then, because it affected them directly, the drivers took the alternative route. Because their tires would have gone flat, not because of the dead people on the road. Current Mood: shocked

|That's right, get the hell out of here!
Second of two parts: Signs of an exodus are here. Some blame the real estate slump; others aren't so sure.

I really hope this happens. If I'm gonna be stuck down here for another year or two, I would be ecstatic with less people, lower house values, less drivers, and fewer crowds at restaurants, bars, festivals, and beaches. Current Mood: jubilant

|And of course, I didn't have a camara!
I go home every day over lunch to walk my dogs. Pepper, my hound mix, LOVES to chase the little lizards that we have down here in FL. She especially likes to chase them around and around the telephone poles along the sidewalk.
Today was no exception. However, the lizard she was chasing around this one pole actually jumped from the pole and landed on her back for a good five seconds while she continued to look and sniff everywhere on the pole for it.
I just about died from laughing! It was a good-sized one, too...about five inches long from nose to tail. Current Mood: giggly

Your Score: Sauron
70% Evil, 90% Intelligence, 80% Common Sense
Annatar, The Black Hand, The Ring-maker, The Red Eye -- Sauron went by many names over the generations of his dark and twisted rule. For thousands of years, he terrified the inhabitants of the land. His knowledge was vast, his ability to control was unmatched. Originally the servant of a greater evil, he took command when his master was banished from the world, never to return. He had an intimate knowledge of craftworks and various magics, which he employed to great effect to build one of the greatest, darkest of lairs in a region so twisted and corrupt, life itself simply gave up upon entering. He also went on to create what may possibly be the smallest, simplest of super weapons known, that granted him near complete control over the lands. The one crucial mistake he made, however, was to bind his very existence to that super weapon, and when it was destroyed in the very fires that created it, Sauron found his essence shattered and destroyed.
Sauron is identified as being extremely evil, possessing incredibly high intelligence and great amounts of common sense. For all intents and purposes, Sauron is quite possibly the greatest of Overlords to have ever reigned.
Source of Overlord: Lord of the Rings
Of old there was Sauron the Maia, whom the Sindar in Beleriand named Gorthaur. In the beginning of Arda Melkor seduced him to his allegiance, and he became the greatest and most trusted of the servants of the Enemy, and the most perilous, for he could assume many forms, and for long if he willed he could still appear noble and beautiful, so as to deceive all but the most wary.

|I don't wanna!
I'm supposed to register for fall semester classes today, but I don't even want to think about school in the summer. Besides, the on-line classes never fill up until the last minute, anyway. Current Mood: aggravated

|There's a key troll in my house
I can't find my keys. I looked everywhere, and they must be at my house because I had them when I got home yesterday. Thank goodness I have a valet key and can get in and out of my house through the garage with my clicker.
However, I really need to find my keys!!! I can't wait until my house and life are back in order. Current Mood: crazy

I somehow managed to get every last thing in my apartment packed into my car and get it all cleaned. I turned in my keys this afternoon with the exception of one of my gate clickers; I need to go back one last time to throw away the garbage and extra boxes that I couldn't fit into my car.
Then I'm done! I am SO gonna have a beer after work today. I deserve it!
Oh, and the gal who did my walk through found my extra key & clicker set! I had forgotten about one drawer in my kitchen. Good thing, too, because I also had my favorite Ren Fest wine stopper, my Tori Amos CD, and the other key to my Lexus in there. Eeep! Current Mood: accomplished

|Kind of like tattoos...
One of the lamest excuses I hear for not getting a tattoo is, "I would never be able to decide on something that I know I'd like forever." Look, if you don't want a tattoo, then don't get one, but that excuse is LAME-O!Hello
! Gemini here! I change my outfits at least three or four times in the morning, yet I have three tattoos that represent three different times in my life. I would probably not get those same tattoos nowadays, but I certainly don't regret them at all.
Same with my LJ journals - angrybeaverclub was not my original journal name. I dropped my old journal and started this one because I went through a trying experience that changed my view of the world, and I needed a break from some people, as well.
At that time in my life, angrybeaverclub was a good title to describe my feelings and outlook on the world. However, after over 1 1/2 years, numerous positive changes in my life, and a need to constantly evolve myself, I've decided to create a new journal and leave this one behind as of my 30th birthday next month.
If you'd like to be on the flist of my new journal, drop me a comment. Of course, some of you won't have a choice...you're stuck with me forever and ever, Muwahahahahahahaha! ;D Current Mood: pleased
|Sometimes, the world works with ya!
I'm doing a BYOM potluck for my 30th. However, I don't own a grill. Problem!
So, I jumped on cragislist, and what did I find? A free
weber charcoal grill in excellent condition. And the people are giving it away because they are moving back to MN! What a small world. ;D
I rule. Current Mood: bouncy

|So I'm a little quirky, so what!
This morning's breakfast was tomato slices, fresh basil leaves, and feta cheese on Vienna bread. Yum!
I had a few people ask me if I was making something with basil, and then gave me a weird look when I confirmed. Guess I'm supposed to be eating a McSomething. ;D Current Mood: bouncy

Does anyone have a grill brand/type of which they are especially fond and would recommend? I know just about nada when it comes to gas grills, although I do have some experience with the charcoal burning type.
I'm seeing a lot of great grilling recipes on the vegetarian/vegan comms, as well as on the Food TV web site. Yummo! Current Mood: crazy
