Raw Wicked Energy

Okay, I am a vegan (no meat, dairy or fish products in my diet), and this week I decided to go raw. I’ve been hearing great stuff about diets with all uncooked non-animal foods. It is supposed to be great for the immune system, detoxification, weight loss, and ENERGY.

I am a mellow guy leaning toward lower energy. Well day four of this raw diet and I am absolutely bouncing off the walls. Wicked energy. I don’t walk, I scamper (which is a little less than a run). I just got off the phone with Christine (she is doing some rockin’ design work for me) and I think I thoroughly confused her. Christine, I swear it is not cocaine; it’s broccoli.

Who knows where this will go. As if I weren’t weird enough. I can just see my friends rolling their eyes when I break the news that I’ve gone raw.

    There’s a restaurant down the street from me right up your alley. It’s called Ecopolitan–bear it in mind if you visit your sister sometime soon.

    Y’know, some people imply that gays have never met a fetish they didn’t like or an addiction to which they weren’t vulnerable.

    In your case, they may just have a point — look at the way you tune and tweak your food fetish, and your addiction to health, peace, energy, and productivity!

    Good stuff, if you ask me!!!

    Huh. Never heard of that. Maybe it’s something for me, although it does sound a little scary. Considering how I respond to normal stimulants I’m not sure it’s safe. 😉

    (but here’s the truth: you can never be too weird for me. i’m stocking up on broccolli . . . )

    CURSES! CA yet again revealed my superpower vegan weakness.

    See, F/friends keep me from getting too ahead of myself.

    Its alright Peterson, we can ask the chippy to give you your fish & chips raw. We’re getting better at customer service in the UK these days so I’m sure they’ll be able to accomodate you.

    CA, um, yuck.

    Hey, aren’t you planning a trip to Scotland as well – they still cook their chips in beef fat up there!

    They also have the highest rate of heart disease in the UK…

    CA, I believe it is raw beef fat, so it is technically okay.

    Oh, and I have a good heart, a very good heart (and good teeth too–it’s an American thing)
