disclaimer: this is all in fun! take everything here with a very LARGE grain of salt!!

i'm so crunchy... all i ever eat is granola, with organic cranberries.

i'm so crunchy... my neighbors complain because i've strung up our hand-washed, all-organic cotton clothing across our front porch to dry.

i'm so crunchy... i make my own chocolate bars myself, starting with the chocolate beans i have grown all organically in my backyard garden.

And I have NO idea how to make fabric....:LOL

I'm so crunchy...I've raised organic ferrets and because they are fed only from the organic 10 acre garden that I till and sew by organic hands...they NATURALLY lick me clean. I shun water unless it comes from the sky directly to me. And then I dry off with organically grown kittens.


Ok...I'm missing the point.

I keep my breastmilk yogurt in hand crocheted containers (organic yarn spun by hand. The yarn is made from wild squirrels who live in my backyard). We eat the yogurt with spoons whittled from trees that were felled by lightning only.

The yogurt, I'm sorry... yoghurt... is flavored with dandelions and poppies which grow naturally... in hand crocheted containers.

Yum, Dandelion Poppy breastmilk yogurt.

BTW, at what point do you guys start transitioning squirrels from your family bed?

I'm so crunchy my vw van is run on organic veggie oil(I wish )

Besides the hair on my head being dreaded, so is my armpit and pubic hair.
One up on you Klothos

Upon having this baby I will be making breastmilk yoghurt, soap, and using it as cream in my coffee. As well as substituting it for my families rice milk...they will never know the difference right

I'm so crunchy I only eat fruit and veggies that have already fallen from the tree, bush, or vine because picking them off is murder.

I'm so crunchy that I braid my leg hair.

I'm so crunchy, my computer was woven from organically grown hemp by women working in a free trade Bolivian co-op.

I can play Kumbaya on seven different instruments.

And I live in a hollowed out gourd.

Well, I'm so crunchy that I've been jotting down recipes (quill, berry ink, handmade paper of course) for all of the yummy placenta dishes we will enjoy from our solar oven after the new babe is born (unassisted, backyard tidal pool).

I'm so cruncy that when I decided to concieve I chose the exact egg I wanted to erupt and travel down the fallopian tubes. Through a process of deep meditation I chose the sperm that had the energy whose vibration was most in sync with the egg and channeled it to the egg ahead of all the rest. Because I was in constant telepathic contact with the baby we decided on a mutually agreeable date and time for it to be born and I gave birth without assistance in the light of the full moon in our natural lake, without pushing.

I wrapped the baby up in a soft blanket I wove myself from the body hair of each family member and walked back to our cave, where we had a vegan feast of raw grass and wild mushrooms.
