My marketing director (bosses boss) is really sweet and keeps offering to buy me lunch since she is getting stuff ordered in...but the delivery place only has one option for me. A sad veggie wrap that is a white tortilla with lettuce and tomatoes. No dressing.

So I always politely refuse (since I always ALWAYS bring my lunch, even when lunch is catered just in case!) and my coworkers think I am a little crazy.

Sorry, I would much rather have my leftover hommade Pho Pheast than some shitty lettuce burrito.

A facebook friend who is vegetarian just posted asking how to get oysters out of their shells because she wants to try one. Even though someone posted on the status already I just had to repeat it again.... "I thought you were vegetarian?"

The girl gave me a headache last night with her stupidity on some other topic so I'm really thinking that her days are number as a friend on facebook. Pity I know her in real life. Luckily I don't see her too much anymore.

haha! Her reply was .... I'm not a vegan, I'm a vegetarian. I informed her that vegetarians don't eat anything with a central nervous system but pescetrians will eat animals that live in the sea. Then I got really all high and mighty and said veganism is more than what you put in your mouth, it's how you live your life.

She's just peeving me off rightly the past few days. Constant status about horse racing and who she has placed bets on.

I'm convinced that nobody actually knows what "vegetarian" means.

I know. Even when I was vegetarian I didn't fully know what it meant even though I certainly didn't consider eating anything with a CNS and once I knew something had gelatine there wasn't a hope I would eat it. There is no way I would have the bald asparagus cheek to call myself a vegetarian and try eat oysters "because they look good."

This is totally pedantic and doesn't change the situation, but technically, oysters don't have a CNS. The do have a nervous system, but it's very simple and not centralized. [/pedant]

But yeah, not vegetarian.

And this. Even when I was eating animals, I never understood the appeal.

Oh shiitake it! Shhhhh, she speaks in text speak so she might not be clued in enough to google that bit!

At least I was right on the not vegetarian bit so I can continue being a cocky know some of it vegan.

This isn't really a pet peeve, just amusing - I had a work trip to Utah this week and I knew they'd be ordering in lunch so I told them I was vegan but that it was fine if they couldn't accommodate me since I always travel with snacks. So they ordered from a sandwich shop and told me there was a salad I could get, so I did. It was less of a real salad than even the typical sad salad is. It was just a box full of all the veggies they put on a sandwich! Shredded iceberg lettuce, PICKLES, sad tomatoes... I just laughed.

I didn't want to post about this in the thread for Sarah Kramer because I would hate to pull away from her cancer battle with talk of idiots so I'm posting about this here. This kind of comment peeves me off- "As vegans, we tend to look towards natural sources of healing." NO, YOU look for "natural sources of healing". Don't speak for me, don't speak for other vegans. That's not a "vegan thing", it's a YOU thing. It reminds me of the time someone posted in one of my classes that, "All people believe in something, atheists believe in nature." No, atheist is just the lack of belief in any god or gods.

That "natural healing" statement was followed up by, "Please check out Kris Carr, Louise Hay (she has a whole book on healing affirmations that have to do with various illnesses. Very helpful!) and 30 Bananas A Day (I know you tried banana island before. Raw foods and lots of greens!!)"

I just.....I am too frustrated to post anymore about this.

this is the 2nd time ive come across a reference to that 30 bananas a day website.

is that like a real thing? that people think it's a good idea to eat 30 bananas in one day?

i actually have a weird too many bananas anecdote.
i had major jaw surgery in October 2010, i went vegan January 2011. in either February or March i attended something called "Ladies Rock Camp" in Boston. (omg so fun)

i was still not fully healed from surgery (still wearing braces! fun!) and i was a brand new vegan so i was unsure of what to feed myself that was both vegan and easy on the old busted jaw. i couldnt really chew much at that point.

i ate alot of bananas in those 3 days and i believe the last day i literally ate like 6 bananas that day.

i have never in my life felt so bloated and constipated. if you look at pictures of me from the showcase which is the big show at the end of camp i look like a balloon.

I hate Kris Carr and anyone selling cures for $20 a pop for a book or $200 for a miracle tour...

I was introduced to Louise Hay over twenty years ago. I'm so surprised people are still peddling that shiitake. Affirmations are great and all, if you're into that kind of thing, but to be told that you should say affirmations to heal yourself of cancer, sheesh. That person deserves to have Louise Hay's books thrown at them.

i had to google Louise Hay to remember who she was and i remember her books from when i worked at Borders.
looking at her website i see for only the low low price of $5.99 you can get a mobile phone app of affirmations to cure cancer!!!

i think a positive attitude can be enormously helpful when dealing with a serious illness but it's not a replacement for like actual healing!

and selling stuff claiming it will cure people makes my stomach churn!

I am all for meditation, prayer, healing energy, I am pretty spiritual - however I know there is only so much my colorful rocks can do or positive thoughts. I kinda use new age stuff as a supplement, more of a mind-calming thing.

FYI: I just smudged the house...Ya, I am that chick!

This. At best it's irresponsible and misleading, and at worst it reeks of opportunism; attempting to cash in someone else's challenges and misfortunes is pretty much the bottom of the ethical barrel. (In fact, that's a big part of why I became vegan in the first place.)

The "natural" cancer cures reek of opportunism. A friend of ours just paid $7000+ to do a three week long Gershon cure, after he was diagnosed with colon cancer. Its all raw vegan food, juices and coffee enemas. Yes there are a lot of good anecdotes, but its not scientifically tested and their successes don't seem to be reproducible. It kind of sucks to hold out false hope to people and to make it so expensive. I can't imagine how hard it is to recognize that you can't afford something marketed as a cure for something that is as scary as cancer.

I know someone who does this, and often has days where he only eats bananas. Drives me crazy when he advises other people to do this. Eating just one food, any food, is a terrible idea.

The first rule of nutrition is to eat enough calories, but the second has to be, eat a variety of foods.

Ugh, the facebook posts about how coconut water/bananas/acai/other BS can beat cancer. So stupid. I call people out on it every time too. Usually they don't even bother thinking about that stuff, they just share thinking...well I don't know what they are thinking. I hardly ever share stuff. Especially stuff like that.

My new marketing events and campaign job is great. Working hard, but I like it.

The only bummer is we do events at horse race tracks and rodeos sometimes. I will put my foot down at going to the Rodeos (has not come up yet that I attend, but I plan on refusing). I will still plan the events though. Usually just renting a suite at the rodeo centers, conference rooms, bar tabs etc.

Can't get away from the horse races though. Those are huge events. Sigh. Poor horseies. Luckily, we do a lot of charity events, and I plan on doing some that benefit animals in the future to balance it all out. But being there will be tough.

Well at least with 30 bananas a day you would save a fortune on loo roll since you will probably never poop ever again. Always look for the positives!
