Wanna Be

I was thinking about my diet today and I decided to become a vegan.  I have gone through long periods of eating vegetarian, but I've never been a vegan. Today, I decided I was ready.  I started working on my resolve and my motivation and my rationalizations:  "hey, I don't even eat much meat as it is."  (I had a huge roast beef sandwich on Tuesday and Swedish meatballs today, but I'm sticking with my "not too carnivorous" self-image.)  I decided to get a couple of cookbooks, buy some soy products and throw away all the old cheeses lingering in my fridge.

Then, I went to Whole Foods and spied this product:

Those words you may or may not be able to make out on the label are: DOUBLE CREAM WHITE CHOCOLATE MILK.  The Oreo-meets-Double Cream White Chocolate Milk image overpowered me.  I quickly reneged on the vegan thing.

I can start eating a vegan diet tomorrow, right after I have 9 cups of coffee topped off with Double Cream White Chocolate Milk.

LOL Mike. And wow, Not Stacy. You think in big picture like nobody's business. But who the hell can ever predict something like Double Cream White Chocolate from Promise Land? (hello!) You're only human, for fuck's sake. Damn dichotomy of life. I can't wait to see how that goes for you, and I hope you'll blog about it. Good luck finding you. I think you know the way. :D

I am LOLing Mike!!!!!
Anyway, Not Stacey, good luck with the vegan thing. I don't think I could do it. I am too much of a cheese lover and of course I have to have the flavored creamer in my coffee. Although I have been eating Boca Burgers for lunch over the past week.
