What people who don't drink or eat meat do on a weekend

I'm adding meatlessness for my fourth annual month of no alcohol. I'm only slightly more irascible than usual, but the weekend was still somehow undepressing, bordering on fun. For those who aren't accustomed to being painfully clear-headed, here are some things you can do with your time:

-Watch "Terminator 2," which is infinitely better than "Avatar."

-Disregard the nosy know-it-all who tells you foraging wild mushrooms in state parks is illegal but then throw them away because they are rotting and of the false variety of chanterelle

-Make mozzarella cheese with whole milk, citric acid, and rennet

-Take advantage of Proposition 215 and read David Sedaris

-Use sourdough starter to make pancakes and pizza crust

-Watch your team lose to a under-matched and depleted Tennessee team

-Infuse liquor to drink when you decide to not be sober anymore

-Liberate some lemons from your neighbor's tree and preserve them

-Get up and walk out of a Bikram Yoga class because you're about to pass out

-Clean out your pipes (not a euphemism)

  1. and the original 'Terminator' is infinitely better than 'terminator 2'... and i like terminator 2. Oh, and Tennessee was still under the euphoric spell of having just kicked off the gun toating, week smoking cancer of their team. At least that's my take.

    keep up the good work
