I bake vegan sweets professionally and write on Vegansaurus for kicks! Sometimes I even recipe-test for VegNews magazine and cookbook authors. The most elegant person in sweatpants you know.
After drinking almost a whole bottle of wine and not leaving the house really at all today, I had an epiphany.
Rob Lowe’s character on Parks and Rec drives me insane because he reminds me of my days at Cafe Gratitude. He is LITERALLY all those kooky, diet-obsessed, culty, overbearingly and unrealistically optimistic, ex-coworkers. Needless to say, it was at times awkward and uncomfortable to be there (and refuse to submit to the Landmark Forum!!!!!!)
Now that I know this, I feel like I can enjoy his character!I did like some things about working there, I mean, I stayed for a year and a half. But honestly - it was a weird, weird time.
