It’s no secret that I love the Herbivore Clothing Company so when Michelle, co-founder extraordinaire told me about a game called Fur and Feathers I was listening! She told me her and her daughter had been playing this new game over and over again, learning cool stuff and it has a cruelty free message so – again, I was all in. The next time I brought Eliot into the store I asked him if he’d like to put it on his Christmas list and he enthusiastically said, yes! So, of course it was under the tree last month and we all love it and the animal trivia is new to me! We’ve truly learned so much! You must save animals to win by ordering food at the Choices Cafe, visting the animal shelter, going to the farm and answering questions. Adorable! Go buy this game for your little animal loving yummy kids!!

How many push-ups can you do?

oh my i love waking up to this! this has been a god month for vegetarians when an athlete like this comes out declaring his change of mind or heart, whichever it was.

and the huge beef recall in california, pay attention people, please please please. it's the meat industry that wants and needs you to believe that you need meat in your diet to be healthy. simply not true.

oh, and my new favorite superhero is tonya kay: http://www.tonyakay.com/
Creature

she's a raw vegan!

and as far as the push-ups go, i can do over 100. and i'm vegan, newly almost raw vegan.

Tell us about a lesson you had to learn the hard way.

i think i once heard someone say when someone shows you who they are believe them. lesson learned over and over again. details aren't even necessary. and it's an ongoing lesson, because i can't help but hope.

clothing: today i wore my emerge kindness heals orange top. yesterday i wore my new h&m dress. it was only $12.99, andy said, money well spent, he liked it a lot. sunday i wore my urban outfitters please don't eat me tee that has a pig on it. saturday i wore stuff i've worn before.  

side note: i watched 'this american life' on showtime on sunday night, so i don't know when it originally aired, but the crew was on a pig farm. a factory, rather. the sound guy was so horrified by what he saw that at the program end the voice over announced he hadn't had meat since they filmed. the truth is powerful and can be life altering.

Submitted by Phil.

i always get everything i want. i've always thought that way and will continue to. if it has somehow slipped by i guess i didn't truly want it.

clothes! wednesday i wore a betsey johnson white eyelet jacket, a black cotton ruffle top, a butterfly skirt and green platform borns. thursday was a pajamas clean up the house day. while cleaning out my closet i realized i've worn a couple tees and they haven't been noted so i must list my vegetarians have more fun tee from urban outfitters and ny love love love tee from delia's.

What did you dream about last night?  

the other night i had a dream about a pig.

i've been reading about factory farming and it's made a heartbraking impression on me.

in my dream i was in the middle of a pack of panicked pigs. farmers were all around trying to push them towards their death, the slaughtering floor. the farmers kicked and shouted. i was so sad and so powerless. one pig grabbed onto my forearm and bit down and would not let go. (i'd read that the usual docile kind pig goes crazy in these conditions.) i leaned down and pet his head, between his ears and continued rubbing him down his back very softly. the frightened pig gently released my arm and looked up into my face.  his snout was tearing off, filled with blood. his eyes were full of pain and fear.
i can't forget that face.
