still doin’ what I do, vegan-style

I always hate when I follow a blog and that blogger mysteriously disappears one day. One day they vanish and you wonder, did they get hit by a bus? ARE THEY OKAY?! You become close to your blogging community and once a regular poster drops off, it messes with the equilibrium.

This time, I was the Mysteriously Disappearing Blogger. My reasons for becoming the dreaded MDB are lengthy, and I won’t bore you with the details. Major life changes, big break-up, yadda yadda… but falling off the vegan wagon was not the cause. I’m still goin’ vegan, PLANT STRONG 4 LYFE. Things just sort of fell apart. I didn’t feel like my blog was very informative–and before/during my break-up, I stopped cooking for a while. Cooking for One was decidedly depressing. I’d open my pantry and cry. I’d pour myself a lonely bowl of cereal with almond milk a couple times a week when I actually felt like eating, and I lost 10 pounds. There’s not much to be food-blogged about that.

That brings me here. I still haven’t been doing much cooking because I’m now shacking up with a PROFESSIONAL (who I “converted” to veganism, no less!). He cooks, I clean, we’ve got a routine. We’ve been toying with the idea of starting a brandy-new vegan food blog together, but we’re both kind of lazy, unmotivated people so it’s been a lot of talk and no action (so far). I’m fairly certain that it would be an entertaining read–nerdy, photo-filled, humorous–probably not the worst thing on the internet. So we’ll see.

In the mean time, I just wanted to say that to anyone who feared I might have been hit by a bus, I’m alive! And if the New Man and I decide to fulfill our venture into full-on vegan food blogging, you guys will be the first to know.
