In my defense, talking to strangers makes me incredibly nervous.

I think I met you in the lunch line Saturday! Before the wise pandacookie told me I should put my ppk handle on my button, I think. I wasn't clever enough to think to do so on my own, or actually introduce myself, oops. I was the one going to Interdietary Cohabitation!

Unless I am terrible at putting faces with names, in which case, um, never mind! :)

It will, after all, facilitate conversation for those with social anxiety. And help those with leaving their animals anxiety.

I kind of dont want VVC to leave Portland because its so much fun having it here, it's just the right size that everyone can get to a million places super easy.


No lie! Me too! Portland is awesome and an easily navigable vegan wonderland. I'd be happy to go back and hit up all* the places I missed this time!

*Okay, some if I'm being realistic. I had a big list! Sadly I didn't make it to Voodoo Doughnuts!

You guys, I had a FANTASTIC TIME. I am still recuperating. The one thing I learned was DAMN, Austin vegans know how to party!!

I really love going out to Portland but the plane ride is too long so I vote somewhere closer next time!

I miss everyone I met and I'm sorry I didn't meet everyone and I'm even more sorry to everyone that I met and had no idea who you were!

Please remember to leave them feedback. And especially remember that what you LOVED is just as important (if not more) than what you didn't.

I didn't realize another East Bay-er was in Portland! I don't think we met, but I wish we had!

The weird thing is, I found that skin it had touched tasted more like strawberry than it itself did.

No one follow my safe sex example.

Oh, I didn't think about the skin! I just took it out of the package and licked it and threw it away.

I am filled with hope and anticipation! :) Gotta think of some great ideas. Oddly, unlike most normal people, I somehow love public speaking. Ha ha. Possibly because my mother forced me to go to the City Council when I told her that there was a leaky sewer on my walk home from school. I had to go to the City Council meeting, wait for the public commentary time, and then tell them about the problem and where it was. Later, I received a letter that they had fixed it, and indeed they had. Great success!
