FIQ (Frequently Imagined Questions)

These are mostly questions that nobody has ever asked me, but I wonder if you're wondering...

Why "wing it" vegan?
What's your diet like?
How long have you been vegan?
Why do you only blog for a few months each year?
Who is this Mr. Wing-It of whom you speak?
Where did you buy your Luke's mug?
Do you have a whole face or just a half?

Why "wing-it" vegan?
I like to play with food! I like to experiment in the kitchen even if whatever I'm making turns out to be a disaster. Recipes are nice, but winging it in the kitchen is such fun!

What's your diet like?
Vegan! This means no meats, dairy, eggs, or honey. I also try to stick to a somewhat lowish-fat, lowish-sugar, lowish-wheat, very low-soy, and generally lowish-junk diet. These days, in my mid 30's, I can't get away with eating whatever I want anymore without growing a big belly. There are some scary illnesses that run in my family too, so I need to at least try to avoid some of them. I do eat sugary cupcakes and white flour breads if I feel like it though. A day without chocolate is not a day worth living. Extreme deprivation is not for me!

How long have you been vegan?
Eleven years! Mr. Wing-It and I went vegan pretty much cold turkey in 2003. I tried fish a couple of times during the past decade but it didn't agree with me and I didn't like the fact that I was eating an animal that was killed for me. I don't regret doubting my values and choices though, because it only reinforced my certainty that this is the lifestyle I chose for myself.

Why do you only blog for a few months each year?
Mr. Wing-It and I have a travelling job, which means I simply cannot find the energy and time to blog from about February to September. I've tried, but I am only human!

Who is this Mr. Wing-It of whom you speak?
Mr. Wing-It is my marvelous husband and official taste-tester! He loves anything with anise and despises cooked spinach. He is funny and kind and he spoils me terribly!

Where did you get your Luke's mug?
This question is actually a frequently asked one. Mr. Wing-It bought my "Luke's" mug on ebay back in 2008 for Christmas, but unfortunately they're not making those anymore.

Do you have a whole face or just a half?
I do have a whole face, but I am not a big fan of exhibiting my face all over the internet. Just call me Captain Paranoia!
