On veggie “meat”
I discovered veggie meatballs this weekend, and *my* aren’t they tasty! Veggie ground beef has been a regular contributor to my meals for a while now, and I can now add the neatballs (yes, that’s what they are called) to my rotation, but they still don’t have bacon quite up to my standards. When I can get a crispy slice of veggie bacon, then I will be in heaven.

On St. Patrick’s Day
I know St. Paddy’s is not yet a national holiday, but can we at least get some recognition from the pillsbury people that it deserves its own cookies? They have cookies for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s day, Easter … how hard is it to make a cookie with a shamrock in the middle?

On Canada getting it’s own little island in the sun
Today I learned that a Canadian MP is trying to get Canada to annex the Turks and Caicos islands. I can deal with that.

On turning twenty-six
I’m okay with it. It doesn’t roll off the tongue the way two-five did, but really, once I passed twenty, birthdays have just kind of been adding up without much hoopla. Thirty may bring about different emotions, but I still have four years to adjust to that sucker.

And yes, I am pretty proud of my converts. But I lost track of their numbers quite a while ago – I ran out of fingers and toes to count them on šŸ˜‰

P.S. I made my goal!
