We've been bitterly busy in the past three months. The following things happened:
- One of us binge-watched all four seasons of Girls and developed a significant crush on Adam Driver, which may have replaced a super-significant crush on Benedict Cumberbatch. Yes, we like them tall, dark, and weird-looking.
- One of us started a microbiome-bolstering diet, which made that person even less fun and more bitter than before. Gone are alcohol, caffeine, refined grains, and sugar in any form. We mean mostly gone, because come on. Let's not be crazy. Added in, in ridiculous quantities, are lacto-fermented foods like kombucha and sauerkraut, both of which have been made IN RIDICULOUS QUANTITIES in the Bitter Vegan kitchen.

- And one of us has realized that writing blog posts may have always been an exercise in procrastination on more important, "work-related" tasks. And it just dawned on that person that if we want to publish blog posts more often, we should probably take on lots more tasks at work, and particularly those that involve public speaking. Problem solved.
So now you're all caught up.

And then we were thumbing through her cookbook, when what to our wondering eyes should appear:
And while we're here, just to prove our point:
