A Foodless Post

One of the problems with having a blog is you rarely get a chance to relive old recipes because you always feel like you need to make something new. Tonight Vegan Mom made Tofurky Tettrazini because the kids love it and it is easy and tasty. So, tonight I thought I would do this survey thing that two people have tagged me to do. The point is to relate 5 things about you, then tag 5 people to do the same.

1. I have dual citizenship. I was born in the U.S. but have lived most of my life in Ontario, Canada. I consider myself Canadian, except when I cross the border. Then I wear red, white and blue, set my cell-phone to play “America the Beautiful” when it rings, wave my birth certificate at them, and get waved right through.

2. I went to school for 25 years straight. Of course, I got my PhD in the end, but when you think about being in school from age 5 to 30 it sounds kind of crazy. I didn’t get my first “real job” until I was 32. Awesome.

3. I am not cool. I have tried to be cool, wished I was cool, sometimes deluded myself into thinking I was cool, but never have obtained coolness. When people describe me, cool is not one of the adjectives they use. Punctual? Yes. Cool? No.

4. I love ABBA. (See #3)

5. I live a remarkably clean life. I have never been drunk; ingested, shot up, or smoked any controlled or illicit substance; or done anything remotely criminal. (See #3)

I am tagging: Two Vegan Sisters, Vegan Family Dinners, The Happy Herbivore, Veganalects, and Something About Penguins. I was going to tag Isa, but then totally chickened out.

so how do you do the voting thing? I was under the impression that to vote in the US you had to denounce any other allegiences. My grampa was a dual too-until my mom was born and he decided US was the way to be. Since I am from another planet (hubby's words) am I a dual too? I have been waiting for the mothership for so long-maybe she is lost.

Speaking of ABBA, did you hear that the drummer was found dead today? A strange accident involving a glass door.
I like ABBA too, and I am so not cool.

Dual citizenship has been recognized by the US since the 1970s, so voting is no problem.

Ahaha! This makes me laugh.
Aaaaand... I dare you to tag Isa next time one of these things comes around. In fact, I double-dog dare you. So there! Ha!

dancing queen...young and sweet and only 17...

Woohoo for 20+ years of education! (you beat me by 3 yrs) I still don't have a real job...

I would like a dual citizenship. Anyone want to give me an EU passport?

ooooooh and I'm straight-edge, too... I grew up in NYC and Tampa FL and how I came out having never smoked pot, tried X or got hooked on meth is still amazing to me...

p.s. you must see the tacos I made for dinner tonight. If my hub can eat 7 your boys will go nuts!

Holy crap! I'm obsessed with ABBA. If that doesn't equal cool, I don't know what ever will. Don't sell yourself short, my friend.

Regarding #5, me too!

LizzyQ ~ Vegan Mother said...

Cool, glad you accepted the tag :)

vegans are the coolest, so you must be at least a little cool!

whatweatelastnight said...

Yeah - tag Isa! I bet she would be totally flattered and love to check out all the other blogs you tagged as well.

Is a vegan allowed to say "chicken" out?!?!

I love this blog even more now! For all five reasons, but especially #3 and #5.

#3 and #5 are the subject of a song I wrote:

I realize that probably seems obnoxious of me... but I include that link only because I think you might honestly appreciate the song and connect with it in some way. :)
