I'm vegetarian. Oooh, there's a surprise.

I've been a vegetable-arian for seven years now (or so, I didn't mark the calendar), though I have yet to make the leap to full on vegan. Milk in my espresso makes for a tasty latte, rice or soy just taste wrong.

Having only joined the forum in the last ten minutes, I'm not too sure if the whole "what does it mean to be vegetarian" issue is too common. For the record, though (mostly because I always have to explain in real life) I do not eat any meat. That means no turkey, no chicken, no seafood. No meat. Although I'm pretty sure that at least some of the members here can empathize with my frustration at the all too common question -- "so, you're vegetarian? But you eat seafood, right?" Grrrrr.

I'd write more, but I always feel awkward with general introductions. Of course if you have questions, ask. But in general I'm sure you'll figure me out from my posts to be.

Hi nkuvu

You're right, the seafood thing is a pet peeve of many people here, and you wouldn't believe how often we discuss the true definitions of 'vegetarian' and 'vegan'!

Anyway, welcome to VB and I hope to see you around the boards!

I like your avatar, btw. Is the tortoise a friend of yours?

Yes, the tortoise is a friend. Just to be confusing, the tortoise's name is Nkuvu. He's a vegetable-arian as well. Note that his herbivorosity (I doubt that's a real word, but you get the idea) is not something I decided on. I don't believe in altering an animal's normal diet to fit my morality. As such, my two dogs are omnivores.

But if you're really curious I have more pics and even a few movies of Nkuvu on my website. However I must warn you that I also have many pics of my dogs there as well.

revelsunrise, what would you like to know? I'm totally ignoring the fact that you most likely asked me that only because I mentioned that I always feel awkward with general introductions.

And thank you for the welcomes, by the way.
