okay, fine, you win, the bear loses
"You are not a bear. You are just a silly man who needs a shave and wears a fur coat."
It's confusing, apparently, that I call myself a bear (long story) when "lion" is part of the blog name. So despite some lost sentimental value, I'm taking the Bear out of my blog. I'm just Vegetalion now: please update your records accordingly (links bookmarks, etc). Also, I know I have some banner issues (above), but I'll have to resolve that a little later, since I'm writing from my work computer (shhh).
You might remember from this post that "Vegetalion" comes from (the french word for) vegan+lion. But if you don't know that, or don't speak french, does it look like vegetable+lion? I kinda like that.
Speaking of carrots and lions, id any of you read the Tawny Scrawny Lion as children? I LOVED it when I was a kid - it's about a very hungry lion who wants to eat a rabbit, but instead the rabbit brings the lion home with him to enjoy carrot soup with the rabbit and his family. And on a steady diet of carrot soup, the tawny scrawny lion isn't scrawny anymore!
Could this story have planted the seed of veganism in my head as early as infancy? Thanks, mom!
annnnnnd as for real food: I have a sweet surprise for you later this week - possibly TOMORROW.
note: "the bear that wasn't" and "the tawny scrawny lion" are not my ideas, nor are the pictures of my creation. They're just childhood favorites who belong to their rightful owners/publishers/licensing people. please don't sue me.
