when a mutual unfollows you first
so then you unfollow them right back
apparently the White Lady cocktail (gin, cointreau, lemon juice) I made at a house party on Saturday was so good that people are thinking about it several days after I made it for them.
Speaking of which, I tried this small batch gin called Four Pillars made right here in the Yarra Valley (like a half hour drive from my house) and it was really expensive ($70 for a 700ml bottle) but they use whole oranges where most gins use dried orange peels, which makes it a really nice pair with the Cointreau being an orange liqueur.
And despite having not made a drink in two months, and despite the pint glass of my shaker set cracking two drinks in and having to use a mason jar instead, I managed to absolutely nail it, even in the end when we ran out of ice and I was adding the necessary dilution using chilled water.
Cannot wait to move out and have a small home bar and more importantly I can’t wait to make more cocktails for my friends.
Hell fuckin yeah.

There are a lot of important Speak Now tour covers but this is the most important one, because “am i more than you bargained for yet”, because “i’m just a notch in your bedpost but you’re just a line in a song”, because “drop a heart, break a name”, because the pronoun change she makes isn’t even a pronoun change it’s “how i’m just dying to be him → how i’m just dying to be here”. SO IMPORTANT.
I WITNESSED THIS LIVE FROM INSIDE THE SOUNDBOOTH IT WAS SO MAGICAL
oh my god I WAS THERE
I love this cover. ahomeboyslife have you seen this?
Okay guys this is kinda important. GQ just came in the mail and for the first time in a long while it had a really important article…
I just sat here for like the last half hour reading this and I’m incredibly appalled at our justice system in regards to the military. The article interviews about 23 men who have all been sexually assaulted in some branch of the military. The PTSD from sexual assault in the military is more prevalent than PTSD from combat…
If you have a chance I suggest reading this article…and the title is a quote that one of the victims Doctor told him…
Hey guys! I’m very impressed and extremely happy to see this post gaining a lot of speed over the last few days! A few people have requested it, so i’ve gone ahead and scanned the pages of the article for those who want to read it, to read.
On the menu for Maggie tonight is puréed sweet potato, puréed brown rice, sprouted organic tofu, chia seeds, and digestive enzymes. Does she look excited? She is!
This dog does not look excited, this dog looks malnourished.
The diet you are feeding your dog places a huge burden entirely on the pancreas, forcing it to produce large amounts of amylase to deal with the starch, cellulose, and carbohydrates in plant matter. (yes, even with your supplements) The carnivore’s pancreas does not secrete cellulase to split the cellulose into glucose molecules, nor have dogs become efficient at digesting and assimilating and utilizing plant material as a source of high quality protein.
When this stuff sits in the pet’s intestine (yes even with your supplemented enzymes) it not only irritates the lining of the bowels but also provides the perfect warm, wet environment with plenty of undigested sugars and starches as food for bacteria.
I respect your choice in leading a vegan lifestyle, but please do not force this on your pet who does not recognize the difference, your dog absolutely needs a healthier diet or it is going to develop health issues and I guarantee you, will not live as long as it could otherwise.
fuckin animal abuse
your dog cannot be vegan you sick fuck
how can you even tag this as “vegan dog”, youre screaming to the world that you are knowingly depriving this dog of what it needs.
Re blogging because this is just wrong.
Dogs cannot be vegan.
DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN!
STOP IT, YOU’RE EMBARRASSING AND SADDENING THE REST OF US
I’m not sure how many times it will need to be stated before this becomes common knowledge, but I am determined to make it known, so here it is again:
Dogs and cats are biologically adapted to eat meat. And while dogs may not be obligate carnivores like cats, they DO NOT HAVE A DIGESTIVE TRACT SUITED FOR A VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN DIET ALONE. Dogs, like wolves, have adapted to eat certain plant products when meat is scarce. They do this only in rare instances, and only when nothing else is available. Just because they are capable of eating small amounts of plant foods doesn’t mean they can thrive on a diet consisting of that and that alone. In fact, a dog’s intestine is too short to fully-process a proper range of nutrients obtained from your sweet potato and rice dish. You are literally robbing your pet of important nutrients, leaving him malnourished and susceptible to bacterial infestations and disease.
Militant vegans seem to think they’re the experts on telling people which animals are adapted to eat which diets (clearly humans shouldn’t eat meat because we don’t have claws and fangs, amiright?). And yet when it comes to their pets, they break all the rules of their own ideology and feed what is obviously a carnivorous mammal a diet that is clearly not suitable for them.
So ask yourself: “Why am I really forcing my dog to eat this?” Is it because it makes you feel better about yourself? It’s clearly not for the benefit of your dog. You are imposing your will upon this animal in a manner which is detrimental to his health. This is abuse, plain and simple.
This is actually wrong. Cats CANNOT be vegan. Dogs can, however, be vegetarian if it is necessary. Some digestive issues of dogs (mostly pure breeds) make it so they can’t break down meat protein but instead must rely on vegetable proteins and the like. I don’t know if that’s the case with this dog but it could be(especially since it specifically states there are added digestive enzymes), cats are definitely not able to be vegetarians but dogs are a different matter entirely. Look on pet MD, ask your vet. It is possible, especially if they *need* to cut out animal protein due to genetic disorders.
That’s actually not like a thing? It’s an excuse people use. Dogs can have certain meat allergies (my lab mix can’t have chicken, my cat can’t have any fish) but dogs are built to digest meat, not plant matter.
"Especially in purebreds" source please
NO NO NO FUCKING NO STOP
The fucking ‘digestive enzymes’ added to that disgusting excuse for ‘dog food’ are there specifically because dogs by themselves cannot digest it properly. EVERY. FUCKING. VEGAN. OR. VEGETARIAN. ‘HOMEMADE’. DOG FOOD. HAS. THEM. At least the ones that are made by people who aren’t absolutely blind to the fact that dogs cannot digest plant shit.
Fun fact - dog has a meat allergy? Usually its only an allergy to one type of meat, like lamb, or beef, or fish, or poultry. Surprise! You don’t have to feed a veg*n diet if your dog has a meat allergy! YOU JUST SWITCH TO A DIET THAT DOESN’T INCLUDE THAT MEAT PROTEIN.
Holy fuck the lengths people will go to to excuse veg*n diets. It’s disgusting. There is no reason to force an animal to subsist on a diet that is actively causing it harm.
PS Just because Dogs can ‘survive’ better on a veg*n diet than cats doesn’t make it right.
Welcome to another exciting round of “My Animal Isn’t Dead So I Must Be A Good Owner!”
Feeding your animal a diet that is slowly killing them so you can feel good about yourself even when the animal in question is looking at you with the saddest sad eyes in the history of sad eyes
