Blind Surf
November 11, 2009

Today we arrived at Perranporth for a second time after checking Crantock and after I put on my wetsuit, I realized I was wearing my glasses. I don’t carry a spare pair of contacts with me so I was going to surf blind… I was pretty freaked out because they waves looked big from far away but as soon as I rode the first wave I was stoked. It was a totally different feeling when you’re riding a wave but you only see vague shapes.

Thinking about going vegan again. Made  cheeseless pizza. Even for something where cheese seems essential I thought it was quite tasty.

Back Yard BBQ
September 16, 2009

We went to Costco and bought some Boca Burgers(vegan), weird multigrain pita like buns, and bagels. A little bbq went on in the backyard with some live music flowing out of the jam room. Quite an epic lunch it was. All that was missing was ketchup.

Sometimes Better The Second Time Around

When I make pasta, I tend to like the microwaved left overs more than the fresh thing.
