Wow Fee, how did you not immediately set the building on fire?

When people buy dogs from a breeder, especially a questionable one. Then they don't even bother to do any research on the breed and find their hands full when they realize that the dog is high energy or has needs that they can't meet. Seriously, I've heard too many stories of people who have gotten border collies because they want the smartest dog and then are surprised at how much attention and energy that they require. Or they get a begle and are angry because it barks all the time. This happens with so many other breeds and these dogs always end up at the pound. Or people who buy puppies on impulse from a pet store with out taking into account all the work they require and the years of commitment that dogs require.

I'm annoyed at what my sister in laws recently. They both bought dogs, poodle mixes, from a place that they described as one step above a puppy mill (and honestly, I think it was). The mother was never seen because she was probably impregnated right after her puppies were weaned. They also claim to love dogs, but why would they support a person who practically abuses them to make a buck? They have also gotten dogs from this person twice. They turn their noses up at the thought of adopting a dog at the shelter. They want puppies and small dogs and couldn't be bothered to spend five minutes on petfinder. And now, because their dogs don't shed, other family members want the same breed and they have probably given the puppy mill owner more business. I kind of want them to watch at least the beginning part of Earthlings where it covers pets to show them what they supported. But it is going to be difficult to convince them to watch anything.

I'm doing an all inclusive in September in Mexico. Hoping I can survive for four days on what they have to offer...

We did a Jamaican all inclusive for our honeymoon, it was actually super vegan friendly, although not very child friendly. There were interesting bean, grain, and fruit and veg dishes at every meal. Someday I would love to do that again. Sitting on a beach all day getting sun poisoning and occasionally dipping into an ocean as warm as a bathtub while people bring you drinks with umbrellas is pretty freaking awesome.

I have never done a vacation like that in my LIFE and it sounds like something I need to try at least once! The closest was when we stayed in Nice and visited different towns/cities nearby each day, but however beautiful Eze may be, it was still mostly road-tripping.

We did one in Cancun for a wedding. I took it as an opportunity to eat as much guacamole as I wanted, which is an amount that usually isn't socially acceptable (silly sharing). Meals for me usually consisted of beans, tortillas, guacamole, tropical fruit, and often something like plantains or potatoes.

It was so weird to not have to travel in the midst of our vacation. Really unlike every other trip we've taken together. I did Rome once with just day trips and stayed in the same hotel the whole time, but even then, I had to actually put on clothes and go out in the world to find food.

In December I went to the Hard Rock resort in Nueva Vallarta and they absolutely accommdated vegans. Everything on the buffet was clearly marked vegan or vegetarian and the fancy dinner restaurants all had vegan options. And it was good. Their salad selection at the lunch buffet was seriously all I needed to be happy; lots of variety and it changed every day. I was shocked to be able to have protein on vacation. If you are not down for Mexico, I know they have Hard Rocks in various locales and I think they are all vegan friendly (but I'd obviously do some research first).

Thanks for the tip! I'll check this one out. We are hoping to do either Cabo or Puerto Vallarta - in all these years I've never been to Mexico, the first time we moved here was right after all the border violence really spiked and for a while they were requiring special permission for military people to go to Mexico, so we never bothered. I know we won't be getting a very authentic experience in a resort town, but at the moment I am not looking for authentic, I am looking for relaxing.

I did a club med all inclusive years ago as a vegetarian, and it was really good surprisingly. A lot of the food was cooked in front of you...tons of veg and fruit. I think it could work for vegan but maybe I'm crazy. Unlimited drinks on the beach may make up for salad for dinner for some people?

You should come into work one day and be like, "I bought donuts for everyone! haha jk mother forkers," and then sit eating your donuts gleefully while they all sulk.

Vacation shoppers, I found this when I was looking for a vacation to book. Sounds pretty amazing to me. Pricey, but amazing!

For Valentine's Day, my SIL bought my brother one of those bacon bowl thingys and a pack of bacon, and neither could understand why I didn't think it was the greatest thing ever. Never mind the fact that I've been vegan 5-ish years and was vegetarian a few years before that and have never liked bacon.


My husband is totally omni and eats bacon but the first time we saw the commercial for that thing, he was as flabbergasted as I was about what a disgusting thought it was. Especially when the commercial suggested the cups as a healthy, low carb option. Oof.

I bought some jeans off eBay... I inspected the pictures carefully for leather and I thought I was safe, there was no patch on the back. But I got them today and there's a tiny little tag on the front. So small you can't see it in the photo. Grrr, arrg. WHY.

ya - me to, but dead mice on a cake????

i like stores like the bone room & loved to death, but i am not a fan of animal bones or taxidermy. so i kinda go in with my eyes partially open till i find what i am after (old funeral supplies, fossils, vintage embalming bottles, human bones)...

Thanks for the offer! I have to get something tonight anyway, so I'll probably just do that and weigh my options- either ordering online or buying some other kind of regular brown pencil.
