The ‘Parks and Recreation’-Cafe Gratitude connection

Our pal Jenny Bradley figured it out:

Rob Lowe’s character on Parks and Rec drives me insane because he reminds me of my days at Cafe Gratitude. He is LITERALLY all those kooky, diet-obsessed, culty, overbearingly and unrealistically optimistic, ex-coworkers. Needless to say, it was at times awkward and uncomfortable to be there (and refuse to submit to the Landmark Forum!!!!!!)

Now that I know this, I feel like I can enjoy his character! [link]

Excellent news! Now let’s all enjoy together:

    His goal is health, not some cultish animal savior complex.

    Optimistic vegitarians are just people. The landmark forum is just a course. Themed restaurants are just places to eat. Let people pursue their passions and visions for their life and stop being so whatever…….
