Updates and Forecasts!

It's been a few months since I last posted, and a lot has happened.

First, I successfully defended my dissertation in July.

Naturally following from this, in August, I graduated! I am now Doctor Foodchain. Or, Foodchain, Ph.D., if you like.




After finishing, I traveled around the east coast a bit. I re-visited some of my favorite vegan cafes and sampled other vegan hot spots for the first time. Reviews to follow in the coming weeks.

Once I returned to LA, I threw a celebratory pool party. 

A rare piece of French impressionism, likely from the splash pool collection.

Next up was a road trip to the deserts of Nevada. A camping trip happened. I learned how to survive without running water - in the desert - for a week. I fractured my tail bone. I saw lots of cool art and practiced radical self-reliance.

Yeah, ouch.

As I slowly heal and seek employment, I will also be participating in Vegan MoFo. This is my second year in a row. You can find my 2010 MoFo posts here.

I have some pretty amazing sh*t planned for this year's MoFo. 

'til then,
dr. foodchain
