I texted J.: I had a dream about a giant unicorn bike!

She texted back: 😀 about time!

It was a dream about a bike festival in Chicago. The giant unicorn bike was two stories tall and pink. Travis was there with his flip bike, there were a bunch of tall trikes,  and some folks on wheeled stilts.

Sounds awesome, right? Let’s make it happen.

pancake muffins

homestyle potatoes, tofu bacon cubes, & pancake muffins

My dad got out of the hospital yesterday, and I figured, the first thing I would want after getting out of the hospital would be some real food. So I made homestyle potatoes with fresh basil from the neighbor’s garden, tofu bacon cubes, avocado slices, and strawberry-chocolate chip pancake muffins.

One of my roommates came up with the idea of baking pancakes in muffin tins instead of frying them, and I do it all the time now, especially if I’m making other fried things for breakfast. It uses less oil and takes less attention. Plus they’re adorable, and you know, vegans only eat cute things. I go through dozens of kittens a week.

EveryBody!

leave a comment »

Today I biked downtown to the art district to meet up with with Heinous for a mutual friends’ gallery opening at I-space. I wore jeans and a button-down shirt, but sadly, couldn’t remember the new knot I learned for my gallery show (the Pratt knot, my new favorite) and decided to go tieless rather than revert to the Windsor.

The show was  “EveryBody!: Visual Resistance in Feminist Health Movements, 1969-2009” and it was amazing. There were cunts everywhere. There was a coloring station including crayons with coloring pages from The Cunt Coloring Book*, a whole lot of zines (including Tip of the Iceberg, an excellent book on the clitoris which my friend wrote, drew, and published), prints from A New View of a Woman’s Body on the walls, and a giant plush cunt in one corner.

Our friend went to the fancy artists’ dinner, so Heinous suggested that we get Thai food at a restaurant a couple of blocks away. It turned out to be a restaurant that we’d gone to together when I first moved to the city, which I hadn’t seen in the five years since, and I had the best kind of nostalgia. Then we biked back to Uptown and did our best to melt our brains by watching hours and hours of The L Word. I’m pretty sure I succeeded and that my brain is permanently mush, which I’m sure the zombies will appreciate when they invade.

* Google Books has The Cunt Coloring Book listed under “humor”, but I think it’s more “educational”.
