Really concerning a biology major needs sources on a cows milk is for calves post. we’re the only species that drinks breast milk into adulthood, and not even that, another species breast milk! how do you need sources for that other than common sense. It’s actually been debated that if you’re not lactose intolerant there’s an issue, not the other way around, because hey! we’re not infants, and we’re not calves and we shouldn’t be able to digest lactose anymore. and no, we do not need cows milk, literally at all ever, for anything. it’s linked to a slew of health issues, one being osteoporosis.

Eren is a sleep talker. Levi goes to wake the kid for early morning training and hears him say some... interesting things.

“What?” Levi asked, still half asleep and trying to clear the dreams from his mind. Had he dreamed Eren’s voice? He often did.

“Hnngg,” Eren moaned in his sleep next to Levi, clutching the blankets between his fists.

Levi felt instantly alert, his skin prickling at the notes Eren’s rough, throaty voice was hitting.

“Yeah, Levi,” Eren said, setting off a symphony in Levi’s veins. “Don’t stop! I like it, there, there.

Levi rolled to his side, watching Eren fidget next to him, and he couldn’t stop the interest that stirred between his legs at his boyfriend’s wanting. He let himself bask in the idea that Eren could never be satisfied, that he wanted Levi even in his sleep.

“We need milk, mhmmm, did you call your mother?” Eren whispered in the same,  sleepy voice. 

Levi’s cocky grin faded instantly.

uh, i think you posted a recipe for mexican-style rice? Do you have a link to that post? I have some tomatoes that need cooking today, but now I can't find that recipe and I am not keen to make pasta sauce again. thanks for your time. (I hope I have the right person..)

you do!! it’s hereabouts, it uses like one big tomato so hopefully that’s the amount of tomato that needs cooking? (if you wanna use more tomatoes i guess you could just have… tomatoier rice.) 

also yo, if you have a good pasta sauce recipe throw it my way, our fridge fucked up and my tomato sauce went all moldy and i have two boxes of mildly stale penne and half a bag of frozen ravioli to use up before i move to chinatown so, like, i could use one of those, i ain’t eating pasta with butter and salt like a finicky 9-year-old.

Surely the bees wouldn't be here without the bee keeper? Surely selling honey makes us need more bees, and helps us and them? Thank you, it's always been a wonder of mine :-) I am a vegetarian, and looking into veganism.

Hi there!

“Surly the bees wouldn’t be here without the bee keeper?” is something I’ve heard often. It reminds me of the argument for milk being necessary in that “it hurts cows not to be milked- we need to milk them” kind of way. Bees (and cows) have been doing well without us for so long. In my opinion helping them by keeping their hives safe or creating sanctuaries is great but when we start taking from them what they need for their winter food supply (and in the case of cows- milk for their calf) it becomes selfish. 

We do not need honey to survive- in the winter months bees do. That’s their food. We have no need to exploit them. 

Increasing the production of honey increases the abuse and exploitation of bees. I could agree with increasing non-honey taking bee protection/bee keepers. 

Opinions differ on these subjects because some people think animals are here for us, not with us. They also might think we have a right to take what we believe we are owed i.e. keeping bees, hens or cows gives you the right to take their honey, eggs or milk. 

I want to thank you for your comments and opinions. It’s great to hear you’re looking into veganism. If you have any other comments or queries the vegan community on tumblr is one* of the nicest ‘round town. 

you know sometimes i really wish i liked coffee just so i could get all those seasonal frilly drinks or mochas or whatever

my problem w milk is that. i love it. milk is the greatest thing ever. however-

-cow’s milk is expensive here bc. we have to import it and it’s gotta be treated to not spoil and whatnot

- soy milk comes at a reasonable price and is highly available but i learned earlier this year that if I drink it too often I can say hello to my migraines being constantly triggered (meanwhile I’ve literally been migraine-free ever since I stripped my consumption down to one bottle a week or less)

- i’m fuckin allergic to almonds

We slept from 8:50 to like 1. I would call it a nap but basically her normal bed time is her nap and then we suck ass all morning til she’s ready to sleep again. It sucked balls and we are SO off schedule I basically want to cry about it but it’s alright. I’m so thankful that I’m able to stay home cause if I had a job I would probably be dead by now. I’ll figure something out eventually. We will have a new baby to work around soon so that should be a fun learning curve.

We got up and went to the commissary. Hot pockets and cookie dough were on my list even though we only needed milk. It was a good choice I love being able to eat sometimes.

Came home and spent a little over an hour at the pool. Then we came home and laid around. Didn’t do much of anything and that was nice.

W got home from work and we went straight to the lake. It was fun. It always is. Then L “napped” so we are basically chilling now that she’s awake cause there really isn’t much left to do come 11 p.m.

I hand washed some dishes, did the dishwasher, started a load of laundry and swept the living room. Picked up our room and took out the trash from the bathrooms. Nothing much and waited all day to do it but better late than never right?

Probably about to bake some cookies. Take a bath with L to kill some time and then who knows when bed time will really be. TGIF right?
