I often think how some words are just one letter away from vast improvements. Like fiend/friend, desert/dessert. Oh, there are lots of tem.

A former vegan friend of mine is a bird lover, and just posted that "Fried Chicken is Nature's Perfect Food."

That just feels like 2 levels of cognitive dissonance right there

Yeah, Adam and Eve were just picking that stuff off the trees back in the Garden of Eden. Try reading the BIBLE, why don't you?!

Someone on twitter was complaining about a lack of vegan-friendly restaurants in our part of town, so I sent them a list of good places to eat. Her response, "I was thinking whole foods wise." What does that even mean in this context? Are stir fries, soups, sandwiches, falafel, salads, and sushi no longer whole foods? I just don't get it.

A friend had her birthday at a Japanese place so I emailed ahead and asked what I could eat. I ordered a dish that they told was vegan and got the awful stomach cramps I got when my boyfriend's dad served me a sauce with fish in it. I am so pissed off. I didn't spend $27 to feel awful.

Did you call the restaurant? You should tell them so they don't make the mistake again.

This guy on a listserv I'm on feeds his cats a vegan diet. Several are ill and he won't even consider switching to a meat diet. I sympathize with not wanting to feed cats meat but once several get ill? And his answer is 'well your cats that eat meat get sick'.

Ditto for piling Daiya on everything; I can do that at home, and I make the effort to melt it into a sauce first so it isn't gross, bisques.

They are as far as I am concerned...and if she means oil free, in something like a stir fry or salad you can generally just ask and they'll do it.

Ginny Messina posted a link on FB to The Laziest Vegans in the World review of So Delicious Cashew Milk, asking if anyone had tried it, and the first response out of the gate (and a number of responses after that) was "EEK! CARRAGEENAN!!"

I would love it if she were to do a post debunking the whole carrageenan scare.

On this note, it drives me nuts when a company or blogger posts something about a new product and everyone is like, "But is it non-GMO?" or "OMG GMOS!" If you're not interested in the product, move on. And all of these people freaking out on Facebook about GMOs better not eat at chain restaurants or any non-organic processed foods with corn or soy in them. Somehow though I bet it's like the locavores who grab the occasional burger at McD's.

Desperately trying to find vegan bread at my corner grocery store, I found a promising looking one, but it said it had omega-3s, and sure enough...FISH! In bread! Barf. Luckily I found another, vegan, one for my tofuna salad sandwiches.

Eww. Gross. Why on earth would someone put FISH, in any form, in bread? Bread can be baked with such nominal, basic ingredients. I don't get the eggs and fish in bread.

Glad you found a vegan one though.

People 'confessing' on my FB wall about how they "slipped" back into eating meat. Yeah, I don't care. Eat whatever you want.

You should just say "okay, I'll take you off the census."

The circus is coming to town. :(

If that wasn't shitty enough, my company has a bunch of tickets, and as the marketing events person, I have to promote them.

I would like to join the protests outside, but since my company has a tight partnership with the venue, that would be a bad idea, in case someone saw me. And they know me, so I would be recognized. Boo.
