My friend took a picture of a log cabin with a fence around it, and encouraged people to write poems about it. One day, my poems may actually be enjoyable, but in the meantime...
Oh, the freedom
Joy and beauty,
Living in a Cabin
in a wood.
Through my windows
Oft there breezes
Pine-fresed dewy draftings
as it should.
And never I
fear Scary Bears
or Hikers, for should they
be so bold
to try and knock
upon my door
My Cabin's cage,
stop them cold.

a. Individuals are taking the substance
in amounts sufficient to create a hazard
to their health or to the safety of other
individuals or to the community.
b. There is a significant diversion of
the drug or substance from legitimate
c. Individuals are taking the substance
on their own initiative rather than on
the basis of medical advice from a
practitioner licensed by law to
administer such substances.
d. The substance is so related in its
action to a substance already listed as
having a potential for abuse to make it
likely that it will have the same
potential for abuse as such substance,
thus making it reasonable to assume that
there may be significant diversions from
legitimate channels, significant use
contrary to or without medical advice,
or that it has a substantial capability of
creating hazards to the health of the user
or to the safety of the community.
That's the official definition of substance abuse. Watch out for the listing of bacon into the Controlled Substances Act as a Schedule 1 Drug.

I have returned from my trip. My photos are on facebook.
In total: 1052 miles driven, 36.2 gallons of gas used, 5 cities visited and the company of many friends enjoyed.
I'm going to bullet point this:
Berkely, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles
Jaspreet, Tiff G, Daniel, Max, Danielle, Becca, Seth White, Kyle, Richie, Chris Knight, Danielle P, and a bunch of new people.
Yeah. It was a good trip.

I went to pick up a lost item in Sacramento, and took the oppurtunity to stop by the Sunflower Eatery in Fair Oaks afterward. I have been wanting to try it since I heard about it two Augusts ago.
Well, the whole area is filled with chickens. Who knew Fair Oaks was a free-ranging chicken habitat? Once I found the place, I ordered. It took a long time to get my food, considering the fact that one orders at a window and eats outside. However, I thoroughly enjoyed my food. The Nutty Taco was delicious, and the Burger was decent. I think they had Cheese on them, so they weren't Vegan, only vegitarian.
Now I want more, once I'm no longer full. Current Mood: satisfied

Well, I've three things to mention this time.
1. I've replaced my clutch master cylinder, changed my oil, and replaced my upper radiator hose with lots of help from my sister's boyfriend.
2. My entire family got to see me in the musical.
3. My ear infection finally is getting close to disappearing.

I was cooking this weekend. I made a big pot of beans, some mousse, and now I just made a batch of little cups That I am going to put the mousee in. I made the recipie myself.
Vegan Sweet Cups (Goes with Vegan Mousse)
1/2 cup silken tofu
1/2 banana, mashed
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp.vegetable oil
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Beat tofu, banana, baking powder and salt in a small bowl with a fork (or whatever) until well blended. Beat in the sugar and beat until sugar is incorporated about 1 minute (the banana will have darkened a bit). Stir in the oil. Add the cake flour and stir slowly until all flour is moistened. Beat another 15 seconds to incorporate the flour and remove all lumps. Stir in the vanilla extract.
2. Here’s where things get funny. If you have a ice cream cone-style waffle iron, do this: Spoon a tablespoons of batter in the center of the iron. Bake for 1 minute then check for proper color. Cook and additional 5 to 10 seconds if necessary. Then, use the back of very small cupcake moulds or the inside of regular sized cupcake mold to form the cup, using a small cloth to shape it. Remove when the cup begins to cool, and cool aside. However, if you’re like me and have don’t have that equipment, smear vegetable oil on a pan, the bottom of a double boiler (really, any flat piece of metal will do), and a spatula. Plop some battler on the middle of the pan, and flatten it firmly with the bottom of the double boiler for 20-25 seconds, then carefully remove the pot and place it upside down to the side. Flip the round pancake thing when it a little past golden brown on the side you can’t see, and then flatten it again with the spatula. When you feel it’s done, remove it (mine were always about 3-4 inches in diameter) and, using a clean cloth, shape it using a cupcake mold (I use the back of the really small size cupcake mold, because it gives me the size I want). Start the next dough, and after you flip the pancake, remove the cup shaped thing and set it aside to cool. Try not to eat too many before you’ve finished.
3. I like to put “truffles” in these. First, make the some tofu mousse(http://www.vegan-food.net/recipe/1379/Tofu-Mousse/
). Let it set, then roll it into balls, cover it in cocoa powder, place it inside the cup, and sprinkle with powder sugar. Current Mood: accomplished

I usually dont like chain letters, but this one was funny in a satirical and sacastic sort of way.
One day, a Little girl was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was about to teach the class about evolution.
TEACHER (calling on a boy in the class): Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside?
TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky.
TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky.
TEACHER: Did you see God up there?
TEACHER: That's my point. We can't see God because he isn't there. Possibly he just doesn't exist.
The little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions.
The teacher agreed
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the tree outside?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside?
LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky?
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher?
LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain?
TOMMY: Uh, No.
LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she possibly may not even have one!
I personaly would have asked the boy if he could see the teacher's Political Correctness.

My Dad and Oma came up, and it was good. We went to old town Folsom.

Last night, I made two pumkin pies from real pumpkins (again). These turned out way better than last year, because I pureed the pumpkins in the food processor, so it wasn't all stringy, and I didn't overdo the ginger. I just had some, and it's delicous. Three pumpkin halves went into the pies, and me and my brother shared the last half for dinner. I glazed it with nutmeg, cinnomon and allspice mixed with sugar and olive oil and cooked it for about an hour. Mmmmm...
Today I'll probably make mushroom paresan, a variation of "cicken parmesan" where the chicken is replaced with portabella mushroom tops.
Now that I've made myself hungry, im going to go eat some cereal or something. My dad's suppposed to come up today with my Oma and I want some pie to be left for then.
Also, I need to rake the leaves today, and I'm looking into Tree Oil for our apricot tree. It's supposed to perevent pests or something.

|Christmas in Tennessee
Yesterday, i returned from tennessee, where I spent Christmas with family, cousins and such. We went to the Opryland Hotel and Gatlinburg (up in the Smoky Mountains), and we relaxed alot. We also went out to eat, to Cracker barrel (which is a wonderful little reasturaunt) and The Catfish House, where they fry everything (we were served seven things fried: Okra, onion rings, pickles, catfish (which was very tasty), french fries, shrimp, and hushpuppies). Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip.
Then we got home, and I went to a party across the street to celebrate the New year. I got home and realized I dint make any resolutions. There's always next year.
Then today, me and my brother did some landscaping work with one of the local handymen. We built a trellis out of 1.5 inch galvanized steel pipe. The old trellis, made of one inch aluminum pipe, recently collapsed under a combination of the giant plant it was supporting and the wind. I got home, and my mom informed me that the cat had gotten a mouse, but my cat's a housecat, and dindt know how to kill it, so I had to finish it off. That wansnt fun. Then i took a shower.
And now, I've just finished a bowl of my mother's delicous chili. Mmmm. Current Mood: content
