my life as of late: a photo essay

okay, so i haven't blogged in a long time, obviously. so i decided that instead of boring you all with a painfully long post i'd simply put up a photo essay, because not only does that sound all sophisticated-like and artsy it's alot more fun. woo hoo!

pumpkin pie.

foam sculpture from 3D design class, cast in aluminum

carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.. this wasn't vegan, but it's quite lovely anyhow

sporting my humane society shirt, although you can't see it.

cranberry pie.

my grandma's molasses crinkles, veganized!

creamy mac n cheeze from fat free vegan. actually by the time i took this photo it kind of hardened as saucy pasta is apt to do. but i promise it was creamy at some point in time and was very delicious.

bonus video: dr gradus ad parnassum! i'm playing it for part of my college audition. i've been practicing my ass off lately. around 3 hours a day. (does this video work? i'm not sure, i embedded it from facebook)

I can't see the video... It says to log in?

And may I have a slice of pumpkin pie, a slice of cranberry pie and a molasses crinkle? Please?

JennShaggy said...

hell yeah. especially if you could get your hands on an untainted-by-meat deli slicer.

Awesome! That's a whole lot of yumminess in one post!
You are totally forgiven for your lack of blogging >;o)

This is just a guess, but I think if your facebook profile has some sort of privacy settings, the the videos have the same privacy settings. You can embed it but we cannot watch it because your profile is not public to everybody.
But I'm not even sure about this...
I think molasses cookies are the best thing ever, and those molasses crinkles look amazing!

Becca said...

I can't see the video either:(
Well, I'm glad to know I'm not alone when those caffeine headaches hit! haha. It usually only hapens in the middle of the day for me.
And I"m glad to see you posted! We've missed you!!!
