Wow wee wow wow wow

This week is looking like it'll be a jolly good time.

Saturday and Sunday were my wildlife rehabilitation course. It was really fun and I learned so much. And I even had time to write Jim a 6 page letter during lunch on Saturday. (side note: I miss that guy so much and wish I had the guts to up and go to Ireland) Sunday we did labs and worked with euthanized owls, hawks, squirrels, rabbits, pigeons, and neonates to do gavaging, subcutaneous and intramuscular injections, and overall exams. It was really cool. Then was the test and hopefully I passed. I finished my test early enough to make it to yoga and then went and hung out with the lovely Jessica for the rest of the night. Yesterday we went up to Lemmons where they played both sixteen candles and pretty in pink.

So tonight is margarita night at my mom's. Tomorrow I am at wild bird on my own for a few hours and then later in the evening Ann Rerun and I might be going to a free seminar on growing heirloom tomatoes and peppers in Missouri. After that is the Robert Blake show at City Art Supply with May Day Orchestra who I have yet to see but The Shadow said were good. I trust his fine judgement.

Then Thursday it looks like my mom got off work so we'll be making a trek to Silex to see the long eared owls. Thursday night is the Acid Reflux show at the Glass Pit with Suburban Smash and Godfodder.

By Friday Ima need a rest big time. A good solid week of awesome weather and activities.

I'm also very envious of my sister who is going to England, Paris, and Scotland for a few weeks this summer with her boyfriend.
I mean, I'm gonna be sweating and sleeping in the woods, I guess that's better.

I have been re-learning math. I understand more than I thought I did. Good thing since I have to calculate drug dosages and calcium and phosphorus percentages. Been studying like a fiend. Yesterday I went to Wild Bird to study with Di for about four hours. I need to re-do my homework tonight and then tomorrow I start my weekend course. It sounds pathetic but I need at least a C on the test to pass and get my certification. Viel Gluck to me.

I might go with Ryan to see a Holga exhibit in the loop tonight. But I really just want to go to yoga and then go home to finish my Barbara Kingsolver novel.

Also, we decided on a section of the Ozark Trail to hike. It is roughly 80-100 miles round trip. We are gonna take about five days of hiking to do it. Going through bluffs, mountain, and river. This is all very exciting.

I am starting to sprout vegetables for my garden. I acquired some mystery peppers as of Wednesday.

I think my mom is going to see more long eared owls this weekend. Perfect, right when I have time off, I also have to use my time off for other things.
But I might be dissecting an owl, so that's close right?

The wild bird rehabilitation seminar I signed up for has not yet delivered my materials. I need to study because it's been ages since I've taken a test and really needed to pass. If I do then I am on my way to being a real grown up with a career and everything. wow!

FBC ride was last night. The weather has been perfect. 70+ degrees today!

I vow to not think about how angry I get when people romanticize poverty and take advantage of other people's circumstance when it means squalor. I have spent too much time this week thinking on it.

the critters age coming out!

Raw Days

So Maddie and Jason and a few of their friends decided to eat raw food only 3 days each week. At first I was thinking that it was too much work. Plus, food is supposed to be enjoyable and most people that start raw food diets dread it. Not for me I was thinking. Then Maddie was talking about how great she felt and how she lost six pounds this week and I reconsidered and decided that I would start with one day a week. Sunday. It will be the day I can cleanse my body. So yesterday was day one and now I'm craving a huge salad. It wasn't hard except when I forgot to eat lunch and got cranky and when I couldn't eat my avocado because it was not ripe yet. I started my day today with granola with banana and berries and I feel a bit heavy from it. I think this is a good thing. I will learn to appreciate vegetables and fruit as they are. Its definitely not a lifestyle change, I mean I am still learning so much just about vegan cooking and nutrition and raw food preparation is on a whole new level. But I feel good about my one day a week raw diet.

In other news, we found out today that people in Arizona saw a clip of hardcore porn cut into the superbowl game last night. haha kids were watching.
suck it sports fans

I made some vegan lemon meringue cupcakes for work. Complete with lemon filling and a sugared lemon rind twisted on top. Sorry I don't have pictures.
