Ok, here goes. My name is Robert, 38 yrs old.



I had no real interest in veg* at all and thought all veg* were AR whackos because of the various actions by PeTA. Then Michael, whom I have known for a long time, asked me to look in on this new VB2 board while he was going away.



It took all of 2 days to lose the misconceptions I had via the interaction with people such as Tame, Avalon and Teri and, of course, there's always the DF incident I've since learned a whole lot here.



I guess I'm one of the local sh&t disturbers and enjoy a good dissenting opinion.



Stick around and feel free to slam me at any time

2 weeks with no replies - sounds like someone needs to put their creative talents to good use.

Bank - any frequent posters who no longer have intros available are "old school".



Michael - yep. Time to do the dirty on these folks. Damn. I have a Grudge Match to complete also. Well hell, who says the family needs quality time this week?

oh i just found this thread today, i swear.



22, vegan 2 years this june, live in Ontario with my boyfriend of 6 years, roommate and cat who is currently purring on my lap watching me type.

let's see ummm i found VB like the day it switched over to the new site, i wasn't with any of the other sites everyone mentions, i just kinda found this one by fluke somehow.

currently unemployed. again. *grumble*

and hobbies are umm well i really have no life. i read, watch a lot of tv, play computer games and surf the net, but i occasionally go for long walks when it's warm out and hope to do a lot of that this year since where we now live has a gorgeous scenic river populated by geese, swans and various other birds



as far as beliefs go, feel free to call me a new age treehugger wacko



oh yeah, and i'm trying to start a magazine with a friend, about animal welfare and humane living.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Well, VeganKat assures me that I'm 'old skool' enough. (*sob*... and I always thought I was 'nu-wave')



My name is Stephen, I'm 20 years old, I live in the UK and I study Sociology at University. Fun fun funnnn!



I've been vegetarian for about 3/4 years, and vegan since last Summer-ish.



I like listening to music (anything from Beethoven to the Smashing Pumpkins.. and I.. err.. kinda have a soft spot for Prince), playing the guitar/piano, watching anime, sci-fi and horror movies, reading (Kerouac, Rushdie and J G Ballard are probably my favourite authors) and talking to the most wonderful girl in the world... who just so happens to be a VB member as well!

You know, Tame...though one part of me says "run!", the other part of me (the not so sane part) is a bit intrigued by you...hmmm, I wonder if this is truly a sign of total and complete madness??

But did she list those reactions in the order that they occured to her? We can never know which came first....

Ah, you are suffering the fate of most females. As with all others, you will overcome your fear and become truly enamored by the Tame One.

I'm sure that I'm suffering from something...but what, I have no clue. Again...I can't stress the word "insane" enough...



Oh, and Tame...if you are all that you claim to be, then this is for you....

Hi! I'm Fenguin, but back at VO my username was Marumm the Black.



I've been vegetarian for 3+ years for ethical reasons, and am currently studying Computer Information Systems at the Phoenix DeVry campus. I've got a serious girlfriend who is also a cute little vegetarian, and at some point in my life I would like to own a trampoline.

Since Funkmeister posted, I'm justified!



Not really old school 'cause I joined just this past November. But, I am in the top ten posters, so I probably should write a little sumpthin' since most of you's will be seeing my name quite a bit.



It all started the beginning of August 2002. I went to the County Fair. The day that changed my life...I saw 2 mommy pigs with their baby piglets. Oh so cute! I fell in love with them. One of the farmer dudes let me hold a piglet and I simply feel in love and wanted to take it home. Well, I get to work the next day and started looking for piglet wallpaper. That's when I happened across www.farmsanctuary.com.



Now, I've always been an animal lover. Just somehow never made the connection (guess I still had the blindfold on) from animal to slaughter to grocery store, etc.. The more I read and researched that day the more my heart ached. It was like a light bulb went off in my head. I knew I had to make a difference and it would begin with me. So, that day I went home and announce to my boyfriend that I'm a vegetarian.



I continued to read up on everything I could get my hands on. It seemed like I couldn't get enough information. At that point I was still eating cheese, yogurt, and sour cream. And I was still wearing my leather jacket.



The next turning point came in January of this year. I discovered where the junk comes from that's in cheese...it's not just milk (in all my readings that was the one thing that I didn't know). So, more research. I became vegan in the middle of January 2003. Gave away all my leather purses, shoes, belts, coats, etc to the Women's Shelter. Went through all my makeup, lotions, hair junk, etc and threw out all products that didn't agree with me anymore.



So, even though it feels like forever, this is still a fairly new road for me. Keep that in mind while reading my posts. And please feel free to guide me if I'm misinformed or if you have anything to share that may help me expand my horizons



VB is a wonderful place. Without it I wouldn't have learned a quarter of what I now know. And most everyone here is respectful and patient. Two thumbs up!

For the record, if you consider yourself old school, you are. If someone else considers you old school, you are.



I put this up so that newbies would have some info about active posters.
