    Like i mean being vegan isn't that hard

    ironically if you do it this way it isn't HEALTY either but hey

    no animal products
    Aunt Jemima Coffee Cake Mix
    Aunt Jemima Whole Wheat Pancake/Waffle Mix
    Betty Crocker Bisquick
    Betty Crocker Bisquick Reduced Fat

    And most of the other things in the "baking" category.

    Good fucking luck eating these without milk or, much more essentially, eggs. Or does peta suggest you eat the pancake mix dry with a spoon and wash it down with some delicious water?

    you can bake without those things quite easily

    soy/coconut milk and super soft tofu go a longggggg way

    I don't believe you that vegan pancakes can possibly be delicious. Got a recipe? I'll make them later.

    Oh god, you can't even put butter on them...


    ok i will give you that- i have not gotten them to work yet

    but i don't try to hard (i hate pancakes and am not vegan), lemme dig up the recipe

    but yes fruit goes a long way

    So I got drunk last night and created an OKCupid profile.

    First of all, since when has every person in the world decided to use the myspace-angle profile picture? You have to scroll down to like the third picture before you find out what a person really looks like.

    Also I wish you could sort matches by weight. That may sound shallow but seriously, it would save me a lot of time.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I forget how much I like Boulevard's wheat. Is good.

    I live in KC. Boulevard is pretty much the only beer I drink.

    If you can get Surly down there, pick some up. I don't know how far they distribute yet.

    Never heard of it. I'll scour my usual stores for it now that I have a recommendation.

    According to Wiki it still isn't distributed outside the Twin Cities area. I can get it on tap at one of the local bars. Can get their "Furious" IPA and "Bender" Bock and "Coffee Bender" which is thier bock brewed with coffee. And their "Mild" English session beer(kinda like Newcastle with way more flavor).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surly_Brewing_Company#Awards

    apparently they were Beer Advocates #1 brewery in America in 2007

    Color me disappoint.

    What Boulevard beers do you get up there?

    All of them. Their Christmas seasonal was really good this year.

    Are you getting the Smokestack series? Cause I'd send you a couple of those.

    Maybe we could buy some beer of equal value and send it to each other. I don't know what that all entails though. Can you just ship beer through the post?

    I'd be down for a beer exchange.

    Boulevard is the biggest brewery in the area.

    There's also Free State and 75th St, but I don't think they bottle their beers.

    Never heard of those two. Do they can? Surly beers only come in the 16 oz cans right now, I think. 4 pack of most of them is 12 bucks.

    That or we have the Cold Spring brewery, but all their beer sucks. Except for Old Johnny. That is pretty good. Has kind of a raisiny taste.

    I'm just not a fan of having my time wasted, particularly on melodrama. If we're both adults, and you've already successfully communicated your position to me, AND I agree with you meaning there is no need to follow-up persuasion, there is literally no point to rehash it, especially if it's over a negative thing. What makes someone think I want to be constantly reminded every fucking day about the same negative fucking thing? It's not only a complete waste of time, since I already know the entire situation and agree completely with your side of it, but it's also a constant reminder of something negative. I want to scream "shut up" at these people.

    The worst is when people do this at a bar. Hell, I've been on a few dates where a girl has done this: Complained about something or other and wouldn't drop it, even after I legitimately agreed with her. At that point, there will never be a follow-up date.

    bank of america: "jesus christ, fine, just get off our backs for half a second you goddamn babies"
    Under pressure by Massachusetts prosecutors, Bank of America Corp. said Wednesday it would reduce mortgage-loan balances as much as 30% for thousands of troubled borrowers, in what could presage a wider government effort to encourage banks to offer debt reduction to ease the mortgage crisis.

    The plan is one of the boldest moves yet to address the plight of millions of U.S. homeowners who are "under water," owing more on their homes than they're worth. It could make it easier for the Obama administration to move in a similar direction with its existing loan-modification program, although senior government officials and many bankers remain very wary of offering to cut loan balances as the main way of helping distressed borrowers.

    So far, most modifications, including those under the government-subsidized Home Affordable Modification Program, involve reducing interest rates. Some also extend terms to 40 years, to shrink monthly payments.

    But banks are finding that some borrowers aren't willing to keep making even reduced payments, believing they have little hope of ever having equity in their homes and might be better off renting, and perhaps buying a less-expensive home later.

    "Severely under-water homeowners are reluctant to accept a solution that does not offer some reduction in principal," said Barbara Desoer, president of Bank of America Home Loans. "The whole purpose of the program is to get more customers to return phone calls" and make payments for trial modifications so workouts can be made permanent, she added.

    Bank of America Corp. says it will offer more borrowers reductions in their mortgage-loan balances in the latest twist on efforts to avert foreclosures. Plus, Saudi Arabia rounds up 113 al Qaeda suspects; and the euro falls to 10-month lows against the dollar.
    Journal Community

    The Obama administration is discussing with banks how to adjust its existing loan-modification program to encourage forgiveness of principal, people familiar with the matter say. An official declined to discuss such efforts but said the administration was encouraged by Bank of America's initiative, calling it "consistent with our own housing policy principles."

    Howard Glaser, a housing-industry consultant, said, "The fact that private institutions are moving in this direction makes it more palatable for the Obama administration to face criticism from homeowners who think there's unfairness" in reducing principal for only some people.

    The action by Bank of America is notable because it is the largest mortgage servicer, collecting loan payments on one of every five home loans in the U.S. At the end of last year, 14.76% of them were at least 30 days past due or in foreclosure, versus an industry average of 12.31%, according to Inside Mortgage Finance.

    Some housing advocates were skeptical. Kevin Stein, associate director of the California Reinvestment Coalition, which works on access to credit, said "Everyone, including us, is looking for something positive to point to, but we are concerned this is going to be more P.R. than substance."

    The bank's program is limited to Countrywide borrowers whose loan balance is at least 120% of the estimated home value, who are at least 60 days overdue, and who can show that financial hardship makes them unable to meet current payments. The bank estimated that 45,000 customers will qualify for principal reductions averaging more than $60,000.

    Only the riskiest loans will be eligible. They include subprime loans; "option adjustable-rate" mortgages entailing minimal payments now but big increases later; and certain loans that have a fixed rate for two years and then adjust annually.

    The bank's move is part of an agreement to settle claims over certain high-risk loans made by Countrywide Financial, which the bank acquired in mid-2008. The Massachusetts Attorney General's office, which was negotiating with the bank, said it was prepared to file suit had the agreement not included principal reductions.

    Other banks have selectively reduced balances on certain loans. Wells Fargo & Co. said it modified loans for 52,600 borrowers with "option-ARM" loans last year, totaling $2.6 billion in principal write-downs.

    Citigroup Inc. reduces principal on a case-by-case basis after other options to address affordability are exhausted, a spokesman said.

    Banks and policy makers have long worried that reducing loan balances for some could spur others to default in hopes of a similar deal. Bank of America said it believed it would limit that risk by requiring borrowers to "earn" the lower balances in stages over five years by keeping up on their new, lowered payments. After the third year, the bank could halt principal forgiveness if home values have stabilized enough to provide borrowers with equity.

    Last fall, Bank of America slashed more than $200,000 in principal on an option-ARM that Precy Padua used in 2007 to buy a nearly $1 million four-bedroom home in Fairfield, Calif. That modification, which stemmed from a 2008 multi-state Countrywide settlement, lowered her principal balance to $635,000 and provided a 5.5% fixed rate over 40 years.

    Ms. Padua said she had stopped making her payments in late 2008, even though the loan wasn't set to adjust to higher payments for years, because the home's value had fallen to around half of the $850,000 she owed.

    "We made a mistake," said Ms. Padua, a 61-year-old clinical lab technician. The lower principal balance is a "big help," she said, even though her monthly payments have increased by nearly 40% from the initial low teaser payments, to $3,275. She estimates her home is still under water by $100,000.

    Bank of America has come under fire for not doing enough to rework troubled loans. Through February, it had 240,550 borrowers—or 24% of potentially eligible homeowners—in trial or permanent modifications, according to the Treasury Department, lower than most competitors. The bank had completed modifications for 20,666 borrowers, with 22,303 pending.

    A bank spokesman said the government's numbers don't accurately reflect the firm's performance.
