LisaPunk, you deserve cake! Whether in your own home or elsewhere. It's not like you're being a diva and asking someone else to make it! You're making a cake your husband wanted!

And yeah, more cake in general is definitely a good thing.

The final word: if the in-laws' cake is supposed to be a secret [their idea], then you are perfectly aiding that plan by making a cake! Otherwise, wouldn't he be suspicious about no cake on his birthday? :)

Wait. That's right. You have to make the cake or you'll be ruining their surprise.

I used to like CPG's podcast, and didn't mind a very quick "If you'd like to donate" in there, BUT it got to the point where every other episode she was just reading something written by someone else (an essay or short story or whatnot), so I gave up. I wasn't interested in listening to someone read aloud, and appeals for monetary support seemed kind of weird at that point. This was years ago though, no idea what they're like lately.

Also this thread has now made me want cake, and I don't have any. PEEVE.

I can't believe what suckers you guys are. I'm not starting a (new) podcast reading posts from the food porn room until I get that $5k in my indiegogo account to buy a dedicated podcast-only laptop. #ideservetheverybest #whatyouwantmetoworkforit?

Since vijita mentioned Vitamixes, one of my peeves is that I sometimes get passed over to review items because I don't have enough of a following, which okay I get that, but then the people who do have 'the following' give the worst reviews i've ever seen. A picture and telling people they should buy it doesn't really make for a review and as a reader, doesn't make me want to buy it. It's hard to say no to free stuff, but if you don't have the time to put in the effort to actually try the stuff you're getting, you should probably turn it down. A lot of bloggers/youtubers get caught up in the avalanche of free stuff when they get popular.

The Vegan Option (based in the UK) is very good, as is Team Earthling (Australia)

The other day my dad introduced me as a vegetarian. I am not too peeved that he mentioned my lifestyle, because he was talking about how i made most of the food at the party, but jeez. If you're going to include that bit of information, at least get it right. And then i felt snobby for responding with "I'm a vegan, Dad. It's different." But otherwise they would not have known the cupcakes and cookies and pastry pinwheels were dairy free!

bah not a peeve per say, but i have a friend with a severe dairy AND sulphite allergy and everytime i think i can share something i've baked, i double check and something has sulphites/or the possibility of sulphites (bulk dried fruit, coconut milk, molasses). even my homebrew, because of one of the sanitizers i used before i switched to an acid one. she is used to it, but i feel bad not sharing!

It doesn't offend me when people refer to me as vegetarian. I mean, for the sake of ordering food, I'd like them to get it right, but a vegan is just a form of vegetarian, soooooo?

I disagree with this. For me, veganism is an abolitionist perspective with regard to animal rights, whereas vegetarianism is inherently welfarist. I also think that vegetarianism is generally perceived of and acted on as a solely dietary thing, whereas veganism is an entire life choice (as opposed to plant-based diets).

There is a deal on Groupon in my area this week. A great deal on a Thai restaurant with great reviews.

I did a search for 'vegan' and 'vegetarian' in the reviews. they put fish sauce in EVERYTHING labeled vegetarian apparently.

This place has vegetarian meat, but they don't consider fish meat. gahhhhhh

I am vegan and consider myself to be both welfarist and speciesist in practical terms. When I was a vegetarian, I stopped buying leather and things that were tested on animals. So your perspective may apply to you, but it doesn't apply to everyone.

Exactly. I sometimes use the word "vegetarian" if food-related stuff comes up when talking to people I don't know well/am probably not going to have any sort of ongoing relationship with (someone who offers me a meaty hors d'oeuvre at a party, for instance, or the parent or coworker or friend of a friend). Personally, I don't feel that every situation - particularly a casual, social one - is necessarily the right occasion to bring up veganism or my reasons for espousing it.

Yeah, I often use vegetarian, because people are much more likely to be familiar with the word, especially outside the US.

So I went to a Thai restaurant, ordered one of the three vegetarian options, and remembered to tell the waitress "No fish sauce please!" And she looked at me with this sad face and in a really sad voice asked "Why not?!?!?!". I almost felt bad for telling her I don't eat fish in my vegetarian food (the food was actually vegan).

Grandma making faces and acting as if she caught me in some trap and was super proud of herself when asking me about the casing for tofurky sausages. As if the vegan sausage makers are holding one over on us when they stuff our delicious sausages in pig intestine.

And I was EXHAUSTED and got angry instead of forming a coherent reply about them not having a casing (which came later) and asked if we could drop it as she was upsetting me, and she said she was "just curious!!"

No, you're just making snide remarks and think you've got this all figured out and think your jokes are sooooo clever. Eat your effing meat and leave my food (which wasn't even sausage) alone.

Apparently, she doesn't realize that even a lot of meat sausages are now made using synthetic (cellulose or plastic) casings.

I came across a blog yesterday about eating vegan at a chain restaurant. "If you are not hardcore vegan, you can ask for thin slices of lean meat and a sprinkle of Parmesan."
What the poster meant to say was "If you are not vegan."

A real life friend added me to a vegan and vegetarian facebook group where everybody seems to worship her, and they're all really health food crunchy and unbearably earnest, and it mostly just makes me appreciate the ppk more.
