To celebrate finally having my own kitchen I have started a cookery blog. http://enchantingveganeats.blogspot.com/ is the link, if anyone is interested.


Jun. 8th, 2010

I had an amazing time last night at the Rage concert.

The support bands were Gallows, Roots Manuva and Gogol Bordello. We arrived too late to see Gallows (neither James nor I are a fan), but got to see Roots and Gogol Bordello. I was particularly looking forward to seeing Roots after missing him the week before. He headlined at the Bristol Eco Veggie Fayre, which I went to. But I had to leave to catch the coach home at 7pm and his set started at 9pm. He was good, but I liked Gogol Bordello even more. I think James should grow a mustache like their lead singer.
What do you think?Collapse )

Then Rage took to the stage, after being introduced by "Simon Cowell".

Apologies for the crappy quality YouTube vid.
They blasted through a set of their most well known songs (cue lots of jumping up and down, head bobbing and singing along from me). Then they briefly left the stage, before returning for an encore performance of "Killing in the Name Of", this time introduced to the strains of Jo McElderry's "The Climb"

Downsides of the night were:
Having our water confiscated at the gate, then having to pay £2 for a lukewarm bottle of it once we got inside. For reasons I can't fathom we weren't even allowed to keep the lids for the drink bottles we bought. Maybe the stall owners thought they'd sell more if people weren't able to take a few sips, then put the rest of the bottle away for later.
Not a single vegetarian food stall to be found amongst the swathes of hot dog and burger stands. It's a good thing we ate before we came. Not that it affects us, but there didn't appear to be any vegetarian beer for sale either, and you weren't allowed to take your own in.
Getting trapped in a huge mob of people on the way out, then being herded by the police without being told what was going on. Due to this and infrequent trains on Sundays it ending up taking about three hours to get home, when it only took 90 minutes to get there.

But overall we had a great time.
Xmess went better than expected. I managed to spend it with James and then went to exchange gifts with my family on the 27th.

List of gifts I receivedCollapse )

I put the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World book and the measuring cups and spoons to good use and made theseCollapse )
They're the Golden Vanilla Cupcakes with Fluffy Buttercream Frosting. It's a crappy photo, but my camera kept switching itself off each time I took a photo. I did not find this conducive to an enjoyable photography session, so I decided it would have to do.

I just came back from a New Year's Eve party. I had a go at Guitar Hero and failed miserably, James did quite well at it, but he said he didn't really enjoy it. James and I were very well behaved and didn't touch a drop of alcohol. Although one of our friends got completely wrecked. I should probably have been sympathetic, but I started giggling when I saw what a state he looked. I have a habit of laughing at inappropriate moments.

Also Miranda Cosgrove just tweeted that she's having dinner with Josh Peck, Barb and her mom. Very sweet.

It would appear I just won £850,000 in a competition I never entered. All I need to do to claim is send my full name, sex and location to a stranger on the Internet. I wonder how many people actually fall for this.

Aww, baby!Josh

I found this video on YouTube. At about 1:44 you can see Josh Peck doing an advertisement for Snow Day. It's from January 2000, so he would have been 13 when this was aired.

Also Five USA is screening an episode of The Guardian that Josh guest starred in later today. So I've got that to look forward to as well.

I've just found The Guardian is being repeated on UK TV on Five and Five USA. Josh Peck had guest appearances in two episodes in season three. I'm going to keep an eye open for those episodes. I can't wait to see them.

Also I found an article MSN (the home of bad journalism). George Tooney (Josh's character in Mean Creek) makes an appearance on their list of "the most annoying movie characters ever". I was about to add this to my list of reasons why I shouldn't read MSN, but they said "Josh Peck gives a brilliant performance", so I decided to forgive them this time. But they still really need to learn that correlation does not equal causation. Every time I read a health article on their I get an urge to bang my head against a brick wall because of their failure to grasp this. They also need to stop telling people to eat yogurt instead of dairy (erm, last time I checked yogurt was dairy). Oh and also that Belle and Sebastian are awesome and definitely not the worst band ever. I'm sure I can think of other things they need to do, but I'll leave it at that for now.




If Dumbledore was to magic up a roast chicken from thin air would it be vegetarian?

Discuss (and no anti-vegetarian comments please).

Also my spellcheck recognises the word "Hogwarts" but not the word "veganism".
