About My Blog.

Welcome! This is "Catatonic Digressions."
Most, if not all readers don't understand my blog's title. It's an old inside joke from a forum long gone. I was going to change it, but since it's been "confusing" for so long, I decided to leave it. Don't worry about what it means, the content of the blog is what is important.

Unfortunately, my blog isn't what I set out for it to be. A disturbed and manic online stalker and cyberbully has made it impossible for me to post about family, my son, life in my part of New York...so I stopped (for the most part), and I mostly reblog and repost what I feel is important, necessary or close to my heart. As for the stalking sociopath, she can go to hell for harassing me and my family since mid-2008. You can't scare me offline with a few lame threats and dozens of pages of defamation, abuse, depravity and libel. I'm bitchy like that. ;)
(Anyone who knows me knows I'm not actually a bitch, but let's allow this psychopath to think I'm a bitch to her blackened heart's content—it seems to make her feel she has some sort of control over me…and it does not.)

If you read a story and you feel moved in any way, comment. Comments are more than welcome.

Unlike those online who lie and hide behind fake photos and insanely fabricated stories, I'm a real person. I'm real and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. After years of putting up with online abuse by manipulative, pathological liars, attention whores or narcissists, I've had it. Don't bother me with pathetic drama. I have no time for these types of people and their need to absorb others' time and attention.

Feel free to email me if you have a story or cause you would like shared, especially if it pertains to animal rights, liberation, veganism, animal welfare, health and well-being, geekery, Macs and computer dorkiness, music, lowbrow art, kitchy stuff, skateboards, the beach, swimming, diving, NYC, beading (it's my hobby), recipes (love to cook, especially if I made the recipe up myself!), VEGAN!, ALF, Sea Shepherd, Action for Animals, NIO, 269Life and/or anything you think I might enjoy or others might—you never know. It doesn't always have to be serious. Hilarious stories, local NY, funny videos or photos, photobombs (especially if they contain pets!)...I might be partially censored, but I'm not closed down!

Please, join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and follow them and The Barbi Twins on Twitter and Facebook.

Ethical Pizza: Avocado pesto (a.k.a. waging war over cupcakes)

Ethical Pizza: Avocado pesto (a.k.a. waging war over cupcakes)

This is a repost from my friend's blog. Enjoy!


Avocado pesto (a.k.a. waging war over cupcakes)

When Kathleen mentioned that she found a new use for the avocados that usually languish on the kitchen counter until we "eat Mexican" and that it's a recipe for avocado pesto by "Chef Chloe", my first thought was: cool, I didn't realize Miss Cleo was out of jail already.

Of course this is due to the fact that I am living under a rock, so I didn't know that Chef Chloe is a young and rising star in the vegan food world. What turned her into an instant celebrity was that months ago she was featured on an episode of the TV show "Cupcake Wars" (another thing I was ignorant about - this time bilssfully), which she proceeded to win triumphantly. Earlier today I saw the "trailer" for this episode and if I'm not mistaken, one of her opponents is heard remarking, "I mean, how good can a vegan cupcake be?" Rhetorical as it may have been, we now know that the answer to this question is "good enough to hand you your own ass on a multi-tiered cupcake stand".

No joke though, this avocado pesto is easy to make, is really very good and will be a nice addition to our standard rotation. Check out the video and recipe here. Pictured above is our version of it on spaghetti (we subbed walnuts for the pine nuts) with kale and Field Roast. Also note our "desserts", consisting of fresh fruit and beer, respectively. It may be a while until you see us on Cupcake Wars.
