Plantmade: New vegan fashion blog! »
Vegansaurus regular, very fashionable lady, and apparel design student focusing on all things vegan Vi Zahajszky started Plantmade, a blog that’s all about the ins and outs of being vegan and not looking like a scrub. I know you’re incredibly good-looking and well put together but I have two modes: baby hooker, or the bird lady after she’s been electrocuted. Anyway, she’s planning on having guest posts from minds behind the biz, cute and ethical fashion tips, and just generally stylish shit. Check it out! And buy me these for when I want to rock the electrocuted bird lady and baby hooker at the same time:
Vida Vegan, a vegan bloggers conference! Let’s all go! »
If you are vegan and a blogger and haven’t been living under a rock (‘cause The Rent is Too Damn High!), you probably already know about Vida Vegan, the very first vegan bloggers conference! Well, what you might not know is that Meave and I will be speaking at it and it’s gonna be Hella Fascinating. If you’re interested in meeting vegan bloggers or learning how to become a vegan blogger or anything related to veganism and blogging, then you must be there! It’s Aug. 26 to 28, 2011 (THE FUTURE), in Portland (YES LET’S EAT) and we can all hang out and braid each other’s hair and tell ghost stories and eat dessert for breakfast and play skeletons in the closet and reveal deep, dark secrets and then never see each other again!
Just a check-in with what deliciousness is happening at What The Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway?. Why is it that everything they make is like 1,000 percent better looking than most restaurant entrees? WHAT IS THAT ABOUT? And if that’s true (it is), then why don’t they have their own restaurant and why am I not eating at it right now? RIDDLE ME THAT. You can’t, can you!! MASTER RIDDLER RIGHT HERE Y’ALL!
Aaaaaand good night, sir!
YOU GUYS. I had lunch at The Plant Cafe at the Embarcadero today and per usual, it was the mickey fickey bomb. But that’s not the weird part. THE WEIRD PART IS THIS: I get home and look what Fancy Nancy sent me! A motherflipping recipe for THE PLANT BURGER.
If you’ve never experienced the magic of The Plant Burger, you are a sad soul. Make this tonight because I will also be making it and we can be internet besties OMG YES. Also, seriously, this is the best thing in the universe and even my meat-eating dad who would kill a piglet with his bare teeth just to watch him die (hi dad!) loves this thing. For serious DO IT.

New rad blog in town, it’s PAWESOME! »
So there are a lot of blog in SF, most of them useless AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT VEGANSAURUS. However, Eve of the highly useful SF Appeal, recently brought Pawesome to my attention. Pawesome is really great. It brings you the news on everything pets in SF; is heavily skewed towards rescue animals (yay!); and is very funny and highly readable. Plus, they post interesting stuff that I give a shit about and you will too if you have a companion critter in SF. On top of that, they are running a contest right now to get a custom portrait of your pet done. If you have a pet, you will understand what a big fucking deal this. We love to worship the pet on a level that can only be compared to my junior high crush on Adam Sandler. Which is to say: INTENSE.
Not only that, they’re connected to the awesome folks who make cute novelty animal t-shirts that aren’t something Cathy would wear. Maybe they could use that…like, “This Ain’t (Your?) Cathy’s Novelty Animal T-Shirt,” or “Cathy Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead In Novelty Animal T-shirts.” Or something better. Or just ignore me. From I heart Tripods to Check Meowt!, you’ll want them all! Seriously, I already have the tri-pod one and get between 1 and 200 compliments PER WEARING.
FINALLY, they feature adorable pets on the site and that splayed wanton hussy up there (damn lady! leave something to the imagination!) is Q-tip. Yes, like from a Tribe Called Quest. Click through to read about how gangsta she is and see her dressed as a Noble Frog. DO IT.
