I learned a new word: Zoonotic

I love monkeys! I really do! I also believe that as cute and funny and mesmerizing as they are, they should never be kept as pets. Why? Well, it's bad for people, and it's bad for the monkeys.  One of the many problems is Zoonotic Disease. immy Kimmel explains it here, joking that Joey and Chandler from "Friends" are dead because, "Marcel the monkey bit them and gave them monkey rabies, and they died."

I real life, it's NO JOKE.  The woman who was attacked by a "pet" chimp in 2009 not only had her face and hands mauled off, she contracted an infection from the monkey which caused her to GO BLIND.

I'm at Blockheads Burritos! "We can make anything vegan!" Sauce, beans, vegan cheese, soy sour cream all vegan!

Sharing is Caring!

A generous friend in my improv class shared raw vegan white cheddar flavor kale chips with all of us, nom nom nom! Soooo delish (also addictive)! Thanks Rob!

PLUS, he also shared a tip: The restaurant he works at, Blockheads Burritos, has a vegan burrito!  I LOVE Mexican food! I just checked their website and they do it with Tofu ``Sour Cream`` and Vegan Cheese.   They have locations all over the city, and it's now on my list of things to check out! I will get one and report back here.
