Whoreleen, Mrs. Clean, and I went to a unicorn-themed party this weekend, and this was the best photo from it. The man levitating above us is the infamous Joe Ball, who works in my 'hood at the new healthy food extravaganza, Thrive. It's one of those fresh, organic, plant-based, raw food-supportin' places, and the smoothies look killer. Check them out if you want to feel goooood. Joe Ball is one of those militant vegans that I normally can't stand, but his food has always been insanely delicious, and he has a sense of humor. I can say, with total confidence, that the Esq and I are meat-loving meatlovers who would rather die from a veal-related heart attack than eat vegan "food"--but every time we've had Joe Ball's delectable cooking, WE INHALE IT. I barely have time to chew, his food is so good. I think he's the head cook, or at least one of the cooks, over at Thrive. Memorize that face, and the way he defies gravity; you'll recognize him if he's there.
It was very strange being at a party with mainly vegans or veggies, most of whom were dressed like unicorns, and wearing an I HEART BACON pin. I took it off at the beginning of the night, because I didn't want to offend anybody; then I went upstairs, looked around at the sea of people who surely graduated from Evergreen, and remembered who I was. I went downstairs and put the pin back on, because it's not a political statement: it's a personal preference. If you really want to come up to me and get snarky about a PIN, then I will take that aforementioned pin and shove it into your forehead. One gal walked past me, looked at my pin and said, "REALLY?" in this 'OH FOR HEAVENS' SAKE NOT ONE OF THESE PEOPLE' tone of voice; all I said was, REALLY! in a tone of voice that said 'I REALLY *DO* LOVE BACON, YOU UPPITY WICCAN BITCH.' At least I look like I've eaten in the past year, and also seen sunlight; couldn't say the same for her. In this photo, Dimitri is wearing a unicorn horn, Joe Ball is levitating, Allison is giving the Death Stare, and I am throwing a Shocker that's dangerously close to Joe Ball's actual shocking areas, were he a girl. Fun was had by all.
