No groceries were harmed in the making of this video.

It’s a pretty typical Monday morning, I’m sitting at my work computer at 6 a.m. attempting to write a feature story over dystocia in cattle, except I have writer’s block, and Dolly Parton’s “Why’d You Come in Here Looking Like That” stuck in my head.

Why? I wish I knew… but it makes me think. Why’d I come in here (Work- Farm Talk Newspaper) looking like this? No makeup, TOMS on my feet where my cowboy boots would’ve typically been, and my hair pulled into a bun and covered with a hat, since I have yet to locate appropriate shampoo and conditioner.

For what?

C’mon did you forget already? 😉 Today is the first day of Project Vegan.

And in order to get things started off right Yoda and I have a little kickoff video to share with y’all. It’s all in good fun, just a little something to get everyone in the vegan spirit.

However before we get to the video there are three things you need to be aware of:
1. No groceries were harmed in the making of this video
2. I’m an Okie, so I sound like one.
3. …And it’s corny and we know it.

Here goes nothin’

Make sure and read David’s thoughts and ramblings during our adventure at Farming America

  1. I read a blog post last week about a lady who hasn’t washed her hair for TWO years! She said she uses baking soda occasionally and vinegar to condition. In my line of work, I didn’t think that would clean my hair, but it might work for you for 2 weeks. 🙂

      I had a co-worker tell me I should try the same thing. When I mentioned it to David and Daniel, they told me that was a bad idea and I’d end up like a 7th grade science experiment—volcano style.
      Boys (smh) what do they know. lol 😉 Thanks for the tip Nicole!

  2. Y’all have accents that just don’t quit. It makes me smile.

      I’m not sure if putting a very strong Kentucky accent in a video with a very strong Okie accent was something the world was ready for, but it happened anyway.

      1. I’ll never forget how happy I was the first time I heard David say, “AW HELL NO.”

        I mean, I say it. Plenty of rural people say it. But hearing David say it was…like…perfection.

        Also, I highly value your Okie and Kentucky accents. Because David can attest to how awful my Chicagoland accent is.

      2. Yes it did happen in full force lol

  3. Please tell me you didn’t really throw all of that amazing dairy and meat away.

      No worries!! As soon as we were finished we took all the groceries out of the clean trash sack and placed them back in the fridge. That’s why the milk and eggs went in last and we were so gentle with them. However I did kind of chunk David’s cheese “collection” in there with a vengeance. That’s what happens when you take away the bacon. 🙂

  4. Not the bacon! Lol! I couldn’t go vegan for a day! I hadn’t even thought about not being able to use my shampoo and conditioner.

      Or makeup, or deodorant, or lotions. We’ve also had to limit our plastic and petroleum usage. We went all out vegan… It’s going to be a very long two weeks.

  5. There are a lot of high quality make ups that are vegan. Try a mineral make-up. (like Bare Minerals). I also love Urban Decay which makes a lot of vegan items (clearly marked) in bold colors. You can continue to use the new make-up even after you’re done with the project and it won’t have to go to waste. It will be longer until you buy more of your regular brand and so the money will all be kind of fungible. Check out this website for ideas on make-up, shampoo, etc.

    1. Also, depending on how strict you want to be, Mitchum is owned by Revlon. Revlon does not test on animals. (But there’s a good chance they source chemicals for their products from other companies that do test on animals since they’re not leaping bunny certified.) The ingredients in their deodorants are not animal by-products. That’s the only deodorant I know of that is sold in regular drug stores that is vegan or close-to vegan.
