I think its just total conspicuous consumption. It looks terrible, but you know it was expensive. I gotta say I'm really annoyed with the amount of fake fur too. I just don't like how it looks, but its hard to find a nice winter jacket without any! Or just my luck, if there's no fake fur, its full of down.

This reminds me of one of my peeves - emailing a restaurant to ask about vegan options and never receiving a reply. This has happened so many times. If you're not gonna respond to emails, don't offer email contact as an option. I'd rather be told honestly that they have nothing I can eat than be ignored. It's not like that's gonna make me wanna rock up and order something - it makes me not want to eat at your restaurant at all because I assume your in-person service is on the same level as your online service.

There's a restaurant here with a giant billboard near my house advertising the versatility of their menu. It actually uses the word vegan. But as far as I know, the only vegan options are the usual oatmeal, french fries, and bread. Nothing really to brag about. I've contacted them by email, twitter, and facebook to ask what their vegan options are, and so far no response. Surely they must have expected people would ask.

Fur is super popular this winter for some reason. I was looking at street style photos from the couture shows, and everyone had some kind of fur.

An advert for 'laughing cow' cheese with cows prancing about on a runway talking about how happy they are to be skinny. Seriously!

i went to my friend's "brunch" baby shower.

i ate a shiitake ton of fruit salad.
fruit salad seems to be the only thing omni's dont purposely de-veganize.

it's definitely coming back for some reason. it creeps me the fork out. i try to live my life by ye old "live and let live" saying and i dont push my veganness on anyone or talk about what people eat or what they do etc but there are 2 things that make my head spin around and fire shoot out of my eyes and vengeance spew forth from my mouth.

eating veal and wearing fur.

NO. NEED.

Unless they're from Planet Freak and ruin it with marshmallows or some sort of "creme" topping!

I saw this disclaimer on a photo album in my facebook news feed this morning (posted by a friend):
Quote:
Disclaimer: I'm pretty confident that this album has some pictures that may be disturbing (chicken slaughter/processing) but please note that we took part with the utmost respect.


Really? Respectful slaughter. What the hell. I really want to say something snarky but I am resisting the urge.

My mom's fruit salad has honey in it. :(

She makes it with agave now for me but a few other fruit salads have had honey when I asked about it.

Nutrition talk by a veg-friendly lady in combination with a zone/paleo guy who owns a crossfit gym and has completely bought that Crossfit is best for all. So some useful advice but I couldn't get past mr paleo/zone guy.

What do you mean you're not thrilled at the opportunity to take my 10 year old cat because I'm moving and my new place won't take her? Didn't you hear me say she's great with kids? She's a total catch!

Stop trying to offer me a behaviorist and telling me that 85% of cats get euthanized in shelters and that our local shelter euthanizes older cats on intake. I really don't care. Just take my awesome wonderful cat now please!

Crossfit has a lot of valid criticism. I have some Crossfit friends on FB and I'm willing to ignore their happy paleo posts but lately some of their posts have been defensive of Crossfit. There is some good/bad there and it has a fairly high rate of injury compared to similar programs.

Half the ingredients for vegan cheesemaking are ridiculously expensive and tofutti is delicious. I want to make my own... but...

I'm part of an online mom group. Today one of the moms posted asking for advice for other vegetarian/vegan moms about how to deal with meat cravings when pregnant. Of course, a chorus of other women come on with their uber helpful "just eat the meat" comments. I told them they were being a bunch of crassholes.

that's so wrong. if she wanted to eat meat she would have already.
usually i think the cravings arent about the actual meat but sometimes it's a comfort food when you feel sick (morning sickness) or she could be craving salt or fat or something.

geesh. talk about NOT HELPFUL.

I've seen a lot of the criticisms and am inclined towards not caring specifically since I'm not involved in crossfit. I just hate that their diet or whatever is at direct odds with veganism and they don't believe you can get enough protein as a vegan.

I will say that I know a few people from my free workout who do crossfit (including one of the organizers) and their bodies are very pretty to look at.

Edited to add: I checked my protein intake for breakfast/lunch/snacks (haven't entered dinner yet) and I'm at 48 grams which is like.. resting/sedentary adult recommended intake for women or something? Anyways, I'm guessing I'll hit 60 today, so take that Paleo zone guy. Hah!

I wouldn't mind paleo so much if it wasn't that everyone I've ever met before on paleo had to preach about how rice is bad and grass-fed pork made them lose weight. Come on, man. You didn't lose weight because you started eating expensive pork, you lost weight because you stopped eating Hot Pockets for dinner.

So turns out that we are sent two different brands of digestive biscuits at work. The one I checked today definitely didn't have dairy in it.

On a similar note..... why are all the cheap biscuits so tasty and dairy free? They are so damn addictive and I can't keep away from them!

I saw a women with fur on in StarBucks, who we ended up sitting next to. Not only was her dead fur coat disgusting but the way she ate her yogurt made me want to spill her latte all over her face!

THIS! My mom was talking about putting Splenda on strawberries, and I cried a little bit for her poor sense of taste. And Splenda! Egads!
