Saturday I went to march against the war in the pouring rain. I had the beginnings of a cold but I had promised a woman from a Kucinich For President group that I would meet here there and march with signs and pass out flyers: so, with signs, flyers, a fever and a very accomodating Trey in tow, headed to Union Square.
It rained and there were some of the usual annoying peace march cliches on display: Peter from Peter, Paul and Mary was there to sing, that kind of thing. Initially I felt conspicuous and small holding aloft my "KUCINICH 2008" sign, but was glad that I did as several people approached me and asked for information, or said "I love him! He's the only one!" [with the exception of the sexagenarian who yelled at me "HE'LL NEVER WIN BECAUSE HE IS NOT A MOVIE STAR AND HE'S NOT A GODDAMN LIAR" while brushing past.
I made the soup above for breakfast. It had 30 cloves of garlic in it, some paprika, purple potatoes, organic celery and a head of parsley.
I also made Lolo's vegan mac-and-cheese THREE times this weekend. It is THAT good. I like it because I wake up before Trey and I'm always starving and so I know when I make it there will be breakfast awaiting me the next morning. In addition, each serving of the pasta ALONE contains 30% of my RDA of folate! Not to mention the nutrients added from the tahini, soymilk, and massive amount of nutritional yeast! Truly, I will owe it to my unborn baby to eat it 3 times a day. Thank you, Lolo! [I omitted the tomato paste because I've found I never like tomato paste in anything, I'm just that way.]
I truly encourage anyone who reads this to please visit the Dennis Kucinich website. He's the only candidate who supports ending the occupation in Iraq yesterday, as well as true universal healthcare. If you are a registered Democrat, you can vote for Dennis in the primary election.
A comment I hear over and over is that "He's great, but he's not electable." Says who? If you think someone is "unelectable," it means you aren't willing to speak up to get them elected. It sickens and annoys me how people say this shit. Who died and made flaccid defeatism "sophisticated" political analysis? The "unelectable" are rendered so by your, by OUR own laziness and complacency. If a bunch of tweens can band together to put Sanjaya on fucking American Idol, wouldn't it stand to reason that people could get a candidate on the ballot for the fucking PRIMARY?
Dear Reader, I know how tacky and scary and embarrassing it is to be sincere. Let's all help each other try, like LeFrak City, to live a little better.
