My first day as a Vegan

So, we just returned from a vacation in Seattle. I decided that when I returned I would become a dietary vegan. Seattle has great restaurants. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE meat!) But, I am overweight and almost 40 and have a beautiful wife and daughter who I want to see grow into a woman. 

Before I left, I ordered Forks over Knives and planned to make a gradual change.  I switched to soy milk a week ago.  Anyway, today, Pam, my wife surprised me with dinner at Green Earth Vegan Cuisine in Pasadena.  Great food!  I had the Fajita Vegana and it was amazing.

Tomorrow we are off to Trader Joe’s to shop for the week.

Saw Red State followed by a Q&A with Kevin Smith.  He has always been an inspiration.  That coupled with how disappointing events at work have been lately have motivated me to start writing.  I have written 2 screenplays, 1 produced and it has always been my passion.  But with my ADD/procrastination it is always on the back burner.  Don’t get me wrong, I love being a teacher but I need to branch out creatively, I am signing up for Improv class at UCB in September and am excited about that.   Anyway, I got up this morning and wrote the first to pages of my new screenplay.
