I thought we had an old thread about this, but since I think I saw a PPKer in the wild today, and I couldn't find the old thread, I'm starting this one. If you want to say a friendly hello to someone you saw out there in the world who think might have been a PPKer, this is the spot. This is NOT the spot to be creepy, so don't do that.

Mars, I think I saw you driving your truck! I was riding my bike west toward 33rd, and you (or your very convincing doppleganger) were pulling out of a driveway and also heading east.

Hi!

HAHA YAYYYYY this is great because I

a) saw this and thought: *creepily creeps on over*

and b) totally noticed a biker earlier today that I kinda thought was you! I hope I didn't run you down or anything! Sometimes I feel like I seem like such a douche when driving that clunky thing.

Ha!

You were perfectly fine in the truck. As long as you're passing safely, (which I am sure you are) I'm sure no one thinks you're a douche.

I'm easy to spot on my bike because I'm either wearing my team kit, or I will have my bright pink messenger bag on. I ride on that street a lot.

Mars, you and I live pretty close together!

I actually wonder if I'm seeing PPKers a lot here. Vegans are obviously pretty common in Portland, but whenever I'm in line at the grocery store, or at Sweet Pea or whatever, I usually take a stealthy look around to see if anyone looks vaguely familiar.

I just want to say that the characterization of spotting "a PPKer in the wild" made me laugh out loud. Now I need to get hooked up with a pith helmet and some binoculars!

I don't think I 'spot' any PPKers around here (unless I have plans with them), but I often see people wearing Herbivore clothing stuff and I do a double take.

Ha, you can't find the old thread because it was "cleverly" (poorly) named Missed PPKonnections, not the best for searchability!

Audrey and I were on the same tour at Woodstock Animal Sanctuary last weekend! I only realized it afterwards when I recognized her daughter from a picture she posted.

Noooo, I'm so sorry - I literally had no idea we were that close to you until afterwards! One of these times I need to slink into the UK without alerting my family or any academic friends/colleagues. and just structure an entire visit around PPK meet-ups and food!

I met Imogen on Saturday! She did have a PPK top on but I was too awkward/ shy to comment.
(In case Imogen sees this, I was the person in the green shirt.)

I'm curious if I saw two PPKers in Brooklyn when I was visiting last month. I went to Champs and then to Dunwell and they were at both places. I figure it's crazy vegans that eat every bit of vegan food in a city and the PPK has plenty of those. Are you ladies here?

Also, I could have sworn I saw GuiltyofBeingTrite outside of Yorgo's in Norfolk, Virginia, but he doesn't live there (I don't think?), so maybe it was just a lookalike.

Aha! Oh, that's funny. I do remember now that you signed up to the EVM group a while ago. It was nice to meet you anyway :)

I forgot about this thread! Earlier in September I was at the Toronto Veg Fest and I was at Leanne from Vaute Couture's talk and she asked if anyone was a PPK member. I put up my hand but so did a few other people - I'd love to know who else was there!

Erika, I think I spotted you! Well, I spotted puppers that looked like Pepper and Biscuit and some pretty pale purple hair at Timeless brunch today! Was it you? I was too shy to ask because I am apparently an awkward grade schooler. But I am also apparently not too shy to post on the interwebs about it.

You should be. They were serving 'monster mac' (to go along with their 'terrormisu' and 'count chocodiles'): cashew-based mac and cheese with bacon bits, topped with tots! I made up a song about it to the tune of 'monster mash.'

we did the mac!
We did the moooonster mac!
the monster mac!
It was a graveyard snack!

Guys, it happened! Madeleine.teacup and I met each other yesterday. It was great! Wild PPK sightings are fun.

I look forward to seeing you again, m.t!
