Ha ha....thought you'd be the first



Talking about Hughsey, I dunno whether you heard it but when he was doing his piece on Rove the other night he mentioned he was a vegetarian rah rah rah, and I was suss about it at the time because I didn't really picture him as an ethical veggie and then I just read somewhere that he eats fish

That was the most hilarious rant by Hughsey! Shame about the fish thing though. However it's good that he got a bit of a message out on mainstream tv!

huzzah! We have a forum! [belated, since I've posted in the other threads].

Also found the Dave Hughes rant hilarious. Nice mix of seriousness with humour. Good way to get to people I think. Good on him!



Pumpkin and chickpea salad for dinner, having a lazy one tonight. [bought from a cafe today. I only found it because one day I wanted to purchase something, as one of the employees is gorgeous haha. Superficial I know but he really is lovely...and the salad is great so I keep coming back for more salad/Mr Latte fixes.]

LMAO!! I didn't notice either! When they put up this sub-forum, I wonder? Hughsey tends to annoy me a lot but he is a funny *******! haha



Pumpkin & chickpea salad?? *drools like Homer Simpson* hehehehe. Mum & I had a vegetarian kebab. hehe.



Oohh, gorgeous employee, eh? What does he look like? *hides* *hint to self: Get a bf!!*

Hi Melly!

Last year, a relative of mine said that Jackie O said on the Kyle & Jackie O Show that she eats fish. I'm utterly confused. lolol.



I actually thought Pamela was vegan?? Did she back to being just vegetarian? If so, that's cool. Whether she is (vegan) or not, good on her.



"Don't you crave meat?" Grrr. LMAO. What did she say to that?

I put him in the Josh Groban category, but with shorter hair. I found some photos, so at the risk of looking like a stalker... (there are awards up at his cafe with his name, and 'josh groban' isn't the greatest description, though it is a huge compliment!) :

http://www.thelows.org/syd/austbarcomp/ [If you go to latte art, #11, 12, 30... but also 22+25 so clever. I always watching guys at work do this stuff. I look weird for showing a photo anyway, hey!?]



Yeah, apparently I need a man too.

ROFLMAO. I loved Terri's slightly horrified expression when they found out. 'I'm a vegetarian' casual as anything "are you a vegetarian?" Pamela seems like a nice woman.



On a side note, I emailed Animals Australia the other week, and they sent me some save babe leaflets, promoting:

a) not eating meat

b) eating free range, if you really must.



They also sent some factory farming leaflets as well. Probably got around 50 of each. I thought you [and some others] might be interested. I'll post it in the facebook group too. I seem to be on quite a thread starting spree

Since seeing 'Earthlings' last weekend (thanks, Kristen!! ), mum wanted to try vegetarian (lacto-ovo) for a week. She told me today that she's enjoyed it... She said that finds it empowering. I hope she decides to go vego. If not, I'll live with it, but it would be fabulous if there were another veg-head in my house. hahahaha. Her last day is Tuesday!

Have any of you lovely Aussies watched Bargearse?? It's an old dubbed spoof movie that "The Late Show" crew did back in the day. I still think it's about the funniest thing ever and quote it daily. Tell me there are other Bargearse fans out there!

I've converted my mum to vegetarianism... She did the vegetarian diet for 7 days and told me last night (before the 7th day haha) that she'd stick with it.

Hi there everyone

Just thought I would pop in and say hello! I am a brand newbie Vegan & am living north of brissie.

I am looking forward to meeting some more people from Aussie, as I don't know ANY vegans or even vegetarians (however my sister may be converting!)
