Bite the hand that feeds
A seemingly apt title. I had to go "sign on" today. For those unfamiliar with the term, it's what you gotta do when you've lost your job and need money. The government pay you! It was fucking horrible, I'm a strong person but I was a little too close to tears for my liking; there were people sat around crying and looking really ill. Basically, (not to sound like a dick) the dregs of society. I really didn't need to be humilliated, why isn't there a better way of giving people hand outs? Actually, I take it back as there are too many freeloaders and stuff. Anyway, I never thought I'd say it but I can't fucking wait to get another job.
It's been raining all day. Went to the city to watch my little sister go nutty in a LUSH shop. Got really jealous I didn't have any ca$h to blow, but it's fine, I'd like to stop being a great hairy consumer for a while. Gotta love the sorts you see out in the city sometimes...
Made some hummus and had some leftovers from yesterday, which was like an insane stew bonanza with every vegetable in varying states of being out of date in it. It was tasty regardless. OH. AND THE CUPCAKES. Made some shit hot almondy chocolatey lov-e-ly vegan cupcakes in the presence of an old buddy (who just watched as the chaos unfolded). My fabulous cousin bought me the "vegan cupcakes take over the world" cookbook and my god. It made it sound like they'd be really hard to make and that they could go wrong at any given moment, but I think my virgin batch turned out just fine :) definitely having a sugar rush, as I haven't eaten anything so sugary since I went vegan. H'ooohhh shizzle.
