We're so crunchy we.. have gathered earwax candles to light our handwoven teepee that's made from old vcr tape that we've upcycled for our vacation home away from home (it's right next door to our old teepee made from upcycled pressed and formed used tp).

 

Thanks for the laughs (and some ideas that makes one go hmmm..).

I'm so crunchy I slept through my unassisted birth and had a multi-orgasmic dream.

I'm so crunchy I can take my sweet time eating granola because it never gets soggy when mixed with my free range-sustainably farmed-grass and granola fed breastmilk to make cereal.

It's not gone. A thread can never die. It just changes form. Namaste.

Yes and depending on how many selfless acts it has commited, this will determine what form it will change into.

I am so crunchy that i start my mornings with 20 invigorating sun salutations, giving gratitude towards the sun for the life it provides then i make my kale, lemon, carrot, beet juice and plan my crunchy day.

I am so crunchy that I have taught myself to photosynthesize. I get my nutrition directly from the sunlight, so never need to exploit the plants or animals of the earth. And I produce my own oxygen. My skin is a lovely green hue.

I'm so crunchy that I use the methane from my own farts to power electricity for my yurt.

Black beans. Lots and lots of black beans. (fair trade)

That takes the (sprouted, grain-free, naturally sweetened, and fermented) cake!  Tears.  I am drying tears from my face right now, thanks to your post.

Don't you dare dry those tears!!! If you don't stand over your rainwater barrel while you cry then you are just being wasteful! ;-P

I'm so crunchy that I built a horse barn out of horse manure and straw. And I use horse manure to heat it.


Peaceful, homeschooling, UC/HBing, select vaxing, breastfeeding, intactivist mama to a bunch of small people.

I could let the tears evaporate, then I could harvest the salt and finally have locally produced salt!!  (I haven't had salt in years because it isn't grown within 5 miles of my house-- the limits of a day's round trip journey on my grass-fed pony*).  My naturopath (who lives within walking distance) suggested I increase my salt intake.  Perfect!

 

* My pony greets me each morning as I rise and tosses her head in such a way that says "I would love more than anything that you ride on my back!  I adore the exercise!"  And I oblige.  She will take neither bit nor harness, and she is free to wander where she will.  But she will happily carry me if I need her to.
