Hiatus, or "How I learned to miss the vegan universe"

It's been forever, huh.


I have to admit that I was testing my reaction to not blogging for a while.  After losing the camera of course my zest/zingawow kinda faded, one can only do so much with a webcam when every casserole looks about the same as your sock pile.  And you do never know how much you love something until you lose it, right?  So I intentionally lost it (the blog), or intentionally got lost.  Whichever way... but it's not right, something's been missing and I miss all of you.  Where else can I get so irretrievably excited over how a zucchini curl twists like it's come from a painting, and where else can I gnash and skip over what everyone's been deep frying or dipping in chocolate or turning from trash to ten-star cuisine?  

I've even been questioning my muffin skills.  For shame.  They're as fabulous as ever, and a number of cakes have gone by, like a towering raspberry maple ice sculpture and a straight up "vanilla with gobs of chocolate frosting and sprinkles" that made me sooooo happy to floof together I can't even tell you.  I even put a cookzine together last week (in the space of a week), for a zine fair last weekend, and it's got most of my best recipes in there.  A lot of mostly cute things, but also the rosewater cheesecake and my sister's opium test-failing Quinoa Poppyseed Salad of unexpected addictiveness.  As soon as I get a camera I'll have it on my Etsy...

Which brings me to the camera issue, and the reason for a hiatus and not an immediate return.  It's pretty simple, it's been officially deemed life-affirming enough for me to drop 150$ on a new one, but I'll have to wait til I go home for christmas to use some fortunately stashed gift certificates to a mall in Ottawa.  So until then, I miss you, I miss this, I'm glad I got to at least go crazy for the Veganmofo, I'm SO disappointed that I won't be able to take a picture of my next cake which is a carrot cake actually shaped like the birthday boy with a little 3d head poking out, hahaha.



So I leave you with this video, which is amusing anyway for having plenty of Data in it, but also 2:27 seconds in you'll see the kinda cake I'll be going for.  Yes it's creepy!  But that's why it's worth doing. ^_^b

Welcome back!! I have been dealing with a lack of blogging zest also, but I couldn't imagine giving it up just yet!

I understand so much what you're goin trough with the camera issue. Just got my boyfriend to fix my good one that had been broken this summer...

How much are you thinking of selling your zine?
should've went to Expozine, but i would have spent way to much money there...

that episode always reminds me of that Tom Petty video, I think for Don't Come around here no more. I wonder if they were inspired by it.

Awwww, I know exactly how you feel. When I broke up with my boyfriend, I lost access to his fancy DSLR camera, and my little digicam is just not as good.

I lost my camera too! Maybe I need to come up with some photo-free blog ideas. Let's do it!

I've missed you too & I can't wait for you to come back with a new camera in tow in a month or so. Vegan zine in a week?! Yowza!
