My name is Sarah, but I usually go by Sparrow. I'm from Monroe, Michigan and have spent most of my life here. I'm pursuing an MS in Counseling. I already have a BA from Michigan State University in Psychology and am a Certified Massage Therapist. I also teach yoga and holistic classes here in Monroe.

I have been a vegetarian off and on for several years. I found the list in hopes of getting some support as I bring a little more "green" to a local convention. I'm heading a Green Track for Penguicon 7.0 for the first time ever. It's hard and while I believe it's a great addition, I've already been blasted with haters. I'm not overturning the convention, I'm not making it strictly veg, just adding more things that I can eat The meat eaters felt threatened. SIGH

Anyways, I'm happy to be here

urgh... what a shame. you'd think you'd be able to rely on geks to understand that different isn't scary, its just different, and to be open to letting people do something a little less mainstream with their tastebuds.

welcome to VB and keep on fighting the good fight! maybe use some sneaky psychology on them to get things done.

i really don't understand what the big deal is! if i said all i want to eat is cookies for the rest of my life and i worked to get a cookie supplier to donate food nobody would care, but as soon as i say veggies the world turns to chaos with these guys
