What was I supposed to do? Just take it??! Screw non-violence. That kid deserved it.



Besides I've got a few anger-management issues anyways, and I'm actually surprised it turned violent. Normally it's just verbal.

You would be more concerned about this possibility if you watched Aqua Teen Hunger Force

haha, My Dad and I have a pretty open relationship. The other day I was trying on last years Halloween costume and told my parents "I'm not sure if I'm going to wear this" to which my Dad replied something along the lines of: "If you're not going to wear it, give it to Mom." (big smirk) I can't remember his exact words, but they were funny.

I would ignore such a person because idiots cannot be reasoned with.

Yes, it's true. That show is scary and horribly wrong on so many levels. . . and yet I still laugh.

I'm not going to ignore a slimy piece of meat slapping me in the face.



Sorry.



I got another one yesterday:

"You know, guys aren't gunna like you if you don't eat meat."

"Why not?"

"Because it means you're stupid."

"Really?"

"Yeah and this one guy told me he didn't like veg girls because they're anorexic and pale."

"Do I look anorexic and pale?"

"..."



People are so stupid sometimes.

Forgot to tell you that, after the "eating" part of the conversion, I could her my mom on the background yelling:



- Now they're probably trying tantric, so that won't be a problem...



My parents and I have a very open relationship. But I know many people (my age) who would be shocked for having this kind of conversation with their parents...

Hahaha... That's definitely not a problem for me. Guys just tease me about it sometimes (lovingly). I really don't think they care so much once they actually meet a vegetarian... They just have a misconstrued perception of them.

This is a weird one, a guy in my last class asked me.



"Are you gonna be a militant vegan when you finish school?"




Like it was some kind of friggin' profession. np: The Moldy Peaches - I Forgot "The Moldy Peaches"

I work at Wendy's and some teen boys asked if I was single and I responded with, "I'm Vegan." There response was "W. T. F. is Vegan?" I laughed so hard. Yeah like I'm going to go out with someone who just ordered a Baconator...

Omg the Baconator grosses me out. The other day I went to Wendy's with some friends and my one friend ordered the Baconator, a jr. bacon cheeseburger, and large fries.

As I ate my garden salad and baked potato she said "you know, you really need more protein in your diet"

Because I should clearly be taking nutritional advice from you...

My husband said I shouldn't bother going vegan because "you can't save all of them so why do you want to try?" and because "there's tallow in asphalt so you can't drive on roads anymore and if you do you can't be 100% vegan so then there's no point."



Made me slam my head into the wall. I really thought he was smarter than that.

This happened in the cafeteria at work Sunday:



Me: Hmm.. I wonder what they have down at the other end that isn't meat.

Kid from dif dept in front of me: they have veggies. You don't eat meat?

me: nope

teen: why?

me: why what?

teen: why don't you eat meat?

me: because i don't believe in animal cruelty. (looking at his plate of chicken tenders). Do you know what they do to chickens? they cut off their beaks, and their feet and cram 3000 of them into a space built for only 100 then they'll stomp on them to kill them (Ok, i might have taken a little poetic license but who cares)

him: they don't do that.

me: oh yes they do. you know you should watch the meet your meat video. (he asked me if there was a website and i told him to go to www.meetyourmeat.com)

me: some people also don't eat meat for health reasons. it's better for you, no cholesterol, diabetes is controlled.

him: you need meat

me: no you don't i can get all my protein and dairy from non meat sources

him: meat's good for you.

me: no it's not it's artery clogging.

him: well, umm.. i like meat.

i had him so flustered he walked away from the cash register and left his credit card. the cashier looked at me and i said to her, "well, he asked a question. i answered him. not my fault he couldn't handle it." she laughed. later i went by him and told him he left his cc behind.

Me: I can't hear out of my right ear. Ugh.

Friend 1: Aw, that sucks. Didn't that happen a while ago?

Me: Yeah, like twice. I think I have ear issues.

Friend 2: It's because you don't get enough protein.

Me: What?

Friend 2: You're always sick!

Me:...I've only been sick twice this year.

Friend 2: Well what about your ear? It's because you don't get any protein.

Me: It's a buildup of wax! It happened before I stopped eating meat.

Friend 2: But you're always sick. You just were.

Me:...I'm not talking to you anymore.



I need new friends.

Six strips of hickory smoked bacon piled high atop two 1/4 lb patties of fresh, never frozen, beef. Complete with two slices of American cheese, mayo and ketchup for a mountain of mouth-watering taste.

460 calories from fat

170 mg cholesterol

1920 mg sodium

57 g protein

My mother and I were cooking and she claimed she eats more vegetables than I do (which probably is true, but she also eats a lot more than I do period...).



Mother: You know, I would make a better vegan than you... if I could eat meat.



Me: What?! (laughing) You know what you just said, right?



Mother: (laughing) Well it's true! I really would! I just need meat...



Me: Oh, Mom. I'm putting you in the "Stupid things omnivores say."



Mother: You vegans. You have your own little 'club.'
