I am both a sci-fi dork and a child of the 80s. Finding this made me wet my pants with excitement.
I smoked my last cigarette 365 days ago, on June 25, 2011. In case any of you are wondering, one year is officially the mark at which former smokers can become justifiably self –congratulatory. I had attempted to quit dozens of times in the years leading up to my success, and I want to share how I finally did it. Yes, I may come off as a little superior, but I deserve it. So deal. Everyone is different, so all I can do is relate what worked for me. Here goes, and best of luck to anyone else trying to kick the habit:
You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy these, as they are just as tasty as any blueberry muffin containing egg and milk. They still have sugar and fat, so they aren’t exactly a health food, but the saturated fat is much lower (canola oil rather than butter) and there is no cholesterol at all. So there is just a tad less guilt involved in eating them.
Do you suffer from crippling insomnia? Do you have an affinity for unintentionally hilarious horror movies? Do you have an unhealthy obsession with all things William Shatner? All of the above apply to me; if any apply to you, you should check out this gem from 70s “Made for TV” heaven.
It is hard to put into words just how moving this documentary is, and that is coming from someone who usually has something snide and sarcastic to say about most things. Not this time. Anyone who watches this and isn’t moved to tears at some point is made of stone.
I am not going to address the controversy over immigration policy, though conservatives need to keep in mind that George W. Bush and John McCain (along with 23 other Republicans, as Obama mentions) supported this brand of immigration reform. What I will address is this partisan lack of respect for the President.
