What's that WacArnold's thing from again?
I don't know... I was bored stiff. I enjoy having something to do during the day. I have been unemployed a total of 8 months of my adult life (not counting maternity leave) and I would just prefer to work or if I didn't need the money I would have to voluneer for something. Sitting at home day in and day out about drove me loony.

Hi Ken. What have you been up to for the past few months? Did you enjoy Coachella this year?

For anyone who ran out of unemployment here is some good news... possibly.
Good news for those hoping for an unemployment extension: The House of Representatives approved a standalone measure that would extend jobless benefits to the more than one million unemployed Americans without any source of income. The House voted 270-153 in favor of the unemployment benefits extension. There were 29 Republicans in favor of the measure.
The measure still needs to be approved by the U.S. Senate.
The Senate has had a history of rejecting an unemployment extension, leaving many readers of U.S. Chronicle worried.
A reader wrote to U.S. Chronicle about her need for an unemployment extension. Unfortunately, she lost her home and declared bankruptcy.
A single mother of two from Missouri wrote, “After exhausting my savings and my 401k to keep a roof over our heads I was forced to declare bankruptcy and move in with my elderly parents in another state.”
A reader from Minnesota who was for an unemployment extension wrote, “Let see: more foreclosures, more loans in default…Is this country that stupid?”
The Senate will not be able to vote on an unemployment extension until after they return from their holiday recess.
I know fat vegan people.
Generally, being a vegan has very little to do with wanting to be healthy. From the outside, people would think that smoking is odd, because they can't wrap their heads around what veganism actually is.
Also, there are plenty of people whose lifestyle choices dictate that they are immensely healthy and eat perfectly, but they don't give two fucks about the environment or animal, or anything but themselves, really.
1) My health, argue all you want, it is a healthy life style
2) It is cruel to the animals you butcher
3) The environment: I think I remember this right; 10 lbs of grain to make 1 lb of beef. So you can make 10 lbs of breads or 1 lb of beef.

Ron, you're not reading what i was saying correctly at all.
My point was that veganism isn't necessarily focused on one's health and that there are bigger things out there. The focus is about not eating/using animal products. So smoking or drinking or whatever as a vegan is totally unrelated to veganism.
On the other hand, there are people that take extremely good care of their bodies and exercise and blah blah blah and people would assume these people would be more environmentally conscious but they're often not. This second group is may or may not be vegan (probably not).
