No one bothered me about milk or meat after that.



Wow, that is one healthy, big baby! I am a big chicken when I think about giving birth to a baby 9 pounds and up.

My doctors all told me it was "a lot of retained water" and the baby was "about 6 lbs"....idiots.



I only had the normal fears and / or concerns when they told me that.....they meant it though, they weren't trying to calm me or anything...they also gave me a due date of December 1st...he was born January 13th.....I think that had a lot to do with it, too..LOL



I switched doctors after that..

It works perfectly!! Especially for BS like this:



"I'm what is technically called a "flexitarian"



This basically means I have my own set of rules which are somewhat vegetarian. I eat poultry and seafood. People have asked me why I eat poultry but not red meat and I don't really have a good answer except for that pigs and cows are way closer to being human. The fact that they are mammals and super-smart animals makes me view them not as meat. When I see ground hamburger I see a cow, not a yummy cheeseburger. This flexible way of being a vegetarian is ideal for me because I don't have to worry about not getting the correct blend of proteins and such since I do get some animal proteins. Also cows raised to provide humans with meat and cheese and milk produce a TON of the methane that is released into the atmosphere and they use up so much energy. Red meat is not an energy-efficient or environmentally friendly food."



WTF!



I was stunned into silence by this one!

I cooked some tofu last night and a few people in my house wanted to taste it. so I gave them a bit, it was honey soy flavour i think, and very nice.



well anyhow, one person tasted and sed yea its ok but itd be a bit bland without any flavouring so i said yea, it is supposed to be like that. you are supposed to flavour it. so then again they said, no i mean it wouldnt have much flavour without the seasoning so again i said, yes, it needs to be seasoned when u cook it. and still, they said, It just wouldnt taste like anything without the seasoning. I just looked at them, smiled, nodded and said you know what, your right.... thankfully they were happy with that response from me.



but i had sed the same thing, well i thought, 3 times in a roll... lol.

My extremely almost carnivore father looked at the plate my mom had (I cooked a stir fry with tofu and we both ate it) picked up a piece of tofu, asked what it was and immediately popped it in his mouth. I watched him chew and he shook his head like he liked it... then I said it was tofu. He immediately went to the garbage can and spit it out... unbelievable.

He liked it until he found out it was tofu.

I'm at a friends house for a birthday get together thing and we're all outside having drinks on the back porch when they all decide to fish from the lake. Quite a few people know how I feel about it but it's a free country so I don't say anything. As soon as he catches one, I go inside. I hear them all yelling and being all excited. Apparently it's a bass, a big one. I hear them trying to get the hook out of his eye. It makes me super sad. When everything calms down I go back outside with everyone. A few people are looking at me. Finally my freind who knows exactly how I feel says,



"What's the big deal? It's just a fish."



I took a deep breath and ignored him. Sometimes people are stupid but I'm glad that by being around them I make them look at themselves and their actions a little harder. I hope this doesn't become an all the time thing cause their back deck is gorgeous.

(Shopping)

Mom: Let's pick up some sugar-free Jell-o while we're here.

Me: Eww, no thanks Mom. It has geleten in it.

Mom: Oh, so you don't eat geleten either?

Me: ... It's part of being vegetarian Mom... (which she should know: she was a vegetarian in high school too)



Later...

Mom: So, are you going Muslim?

Me: Huh? "Going" Muslim?

Mom: Muslims don't eat geletin.

Me: wtf? No! Don't they eat like beef and stuff?

Mom: Yeah...



Mom enjoys psycho-analyzing me. She wants to know the "real" reason I went veggie. Rebellion perhaps? Health paranoia? Propaganda? *ugh*

Well, it was chicken sandwich night and I was the only one at my table of friends with the alternative, and it was the first time most of them learned of my switch. Then my friend, who was busy scarfing chicken flesh, proclaimed "Oh, me too!"



I'm like, uh, look at your plate?



"Oh, I just avoid beef. Beef is gross. Chicken is ok. Except I'll eat like hotdogs and stuff."



"Huh?"



"At least I was a vegetarian before you were!" laughing ensues.



"At least I'm a real vegetarian..."



"Yeah..." *goes back to eating*

I'm really sorry about that. The fact that your "friend" practically picks on you in front of everyone, adding insult to injury, is just inexcusable. I remember back when I was an omni and I used to fish for fun *why did I do that?!*, the last fish I caught that day had the hook through its eye. I thought I was gonna bawl my eyes out. I was guilty for the rest of the day, and I've never done that tricking-and-killing thing ever again.

He does that though. It's just his way. He also goes the extra mile and checks all the ingredients of things and buys me something special if he knows I'm coming over. He's a great guy but he drinks and picks on me. I sass him back. It's our thing I guess. He is from West Virginia so I can't blame him too much



I went fishing one time in my whole life and it was a lot fun. Until I caught something, that is. It's good that at least some of us wake up

Yeah, I wanted to say, "Oh ok, no big deal huh? Come here and let me stick this hook thing through your cheek and into your eye. Don't worry I'll rip it out in a minute after I suffocate you for awhile."



Yup, I should have punched him in the stomach

Today, I was sitting at my desk eating some excellent leftover cholent (stew recipe from The Veganomicon, but with MSF Grillers instead of TVP), and an acquaintance of mine walks over.



He: That smells really good! Can I try some?

Me: Ummm . . . okay . . . sure.



We have a bunch of clean plastic forks and spoons and such in a corner of our cube area (which I am now rethinking). So he grabs a fork, digs into my lunch and takes a HUGE bite.



He: OMG, that is so good! I just got back from India, and I have been missing beef!

Me: Well, you're still missing it.

He: Huh?

Me: Well . . . There are a BUNCH of assorted vegetarian stickers all over my cube, and I'm drinking out of a PETA coffee mug . . .

He: . . . . . . . . . . . Oh, really? But it tasted really good.

I don't know why, but I found this story really funny! I love how you responded there, because it's true and shows her that just because she was "vegetarian" first doesn't mean she's any better. In fact, she's not even vegetarian!

Our cousin has been staying with us for the past ten days, gave me a few gems:



Cousin: Why do you have all this organic stuff?

Mom: You know what organic means right?

Cousin: Yeah, it's when they add stuff to the food to make it taste better.



(At the dinner table after swimming in the hot springs all day.)

Cousin: They should really add some chemicals to those though. (These hot srings flow into the Yampa River, which goes into the Green River, and then into the Colorado...he knows this.)

Mom: What, and kill all the fish?!

Cousin: Yeah, but it would save me!

These hot springs are just as clean as a chemical-loaded pool. Which reminds me, he also said something about "It's not technically swimming unless you're in a pool."



And now, my personal favorite:

Brother: It really bugs me when people think fish isn't meat.

Cousin: Fish isn't meat, it's poultry.



This is a high school graduate who took multiple cooking courses. He really is nice, just not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

"Do you really believe the ingredients list on the back?"



"uh... for allergy purposes? Yeah. Would NOT be worth lying.."



But seriously, I'm always thinking--frankly, i dont see why a company would "sneak" animal products in and then lie about it--so they can giggle about tricking the silly veg*ns? And even if it was a mistake, which omnis sometimes point out--at least I'm making a pretty safe bet, vs eating something that has "gelatin" listed as the 2nd ingredient... *shrug* i donno, I just get this often enough that I had to post it.

"I'm a traditionalist." My husband explaining why we must have an animal carcass on the table for Thanksgiving.



I'm not going to fight this one any more. He gets his dead bird this year. I'll do the rest of the menu and prove that the turkey is not necessary.

I just had to add...



My step mother-in-law is not the brightest, but boy did she out do herself with this genius comment:



We are all grilling out burgers one night, I had my Boca burger. She turns to me during dinner and says:



Her: "Why are you eating that?"

Me: "Because I am vegetarian."

Her: "But do you eat fish?"

Me: "No."

Her: "But fish isn't a meat; it's a vegetable."

Me: "I don't eat animal flesh."

Her: "But it's not flesh, that would be the scales. You would eat the inside."



I just had to stop and try not to laugh as her husband explained to her that a fish was indeed an animal and that the flesh is the part you eat.



Really? How ignorant can you be?
