Awesome day

Just got home from Seattle. I had a great fucking day!!

I got to interview Bitch at an awesome little coffee shop, Fremont Coffee. Fremont is so cute. There was some kind of weird pubcrawling event going on, so at two in the afternoon there was all sorts of drunk twentysomethings running around hootin' and hollerin'. It was crazy, but comical.

Bitch is completely awesome. And so is her album, Blasted. I highly recommend it--she plays the violin and it sounds like an electric guitar! It kicks ass. The interview will be up on Verbicide in the next couple of weeks, so make sure to check it out. We shot some great photos at Gas Works Park that'll be posted with the story. And she's on tour, so check out her website and head over to check out one of her gigs!

Here's the video for her first single off the album, "Kitchen"

After that, me and the mister tooled around Seattle a bit picking up some choice vegan omnoms. We stopped by Mighty O Donuts, which was just about to the few remaining donuts they had in stock were half off!! Kick ass. We got a couple little "naked" donuts (plain), a chocolate cake donut, and a "cocoloco" which is a chocolate cake donut tossed in cinnamon and sugar. Can't wait to eat them later with a cup of cold soymilk!

Then, we had a delicious dinner at the Moonlight Cafe. Oh my god, it was so good! They have an entire vegan menu. It was difficult to decide what to get. We had these little "shredded tofu" spring rolls for an appetizer:

They were pretty good! Very different than any spring roll I've had. I don't really eat too much Vietnamese food, so perhaps it's common. It tasted really good with the sauce that it came with, but without the sauce, it wasn't as tasty. I liked the fresh mint that was in it. :)

For our entree, we had General Tso's "chicken" and Tofu and Black Mushrooms in a coconut sauce. Rice doesn't come with the meal, but it's only 95 cents per person to get a big old portion of rice, and we were able to select brown rice! Yum.

The General Tso's "chicken" looked kind of like Italian sausage and peppers, but with broccoli thrown in:

It was really good. The "meat" was crispy on the outside, and less firm on the inside. The sauce was savory, and the veggies were cooked perfectly.

The coconutty dish was fabulous. The sauce tasted great over the rice. The mushrooms were good, though I kind of wished there was more in there. Tons of yummy tofu. We had a lot of leftovers!

After this tasty meal, on the drive home, we saw almost ten separate rainbows between Seattle and Olympia! Also, the clouds were enormous and fluffy. The sky basically looked like a painting. I couldn't take any pictures...well...because I was driving, and I didn't want to die on the road. I assure you the sparkling, dewy world was beautiful.

Yay for good days!
