I joined vb about a month after becoming a vegetarian. I have to fully admit that I don't think I would have made it at times if it weren't for these boards. The people here were completely amazing to me and helped me answer a lot of questions about being veg*n. They gave me plenty of ideas about quick and easy veg-friendly meals. More importantly, they gave me a bunch of love and support that I didn't get from most of my omni friends. BTW...5 months now and still going strong!!!! Thanks everybody!



Oh, and Michael is brilliant.

That's great revel. The longer I'm here, the more I like this place. I've talked to some great people here, and got some great ideas. At the beginning of next month I'll be starting my way towards veganism, and I can truly say I'm excited because I know I can come here and get support, get some recipes, and have a good laugh.

Veggie chicks ARE crunchier. And less likely to eat their mates.

The support that I have always received here has always meant the world to me... You are an amazing (and quite varied) group of people; never change!



(It doesn't hurt that I met one of my very best friends on the boards... It will always have that going for it if all else fails. )

WHY DONT YOU EXIST IN REAL LIFE?!? where do you live?! why dont i ever see you!? it seems like i can never find another vegan. or even vegetarian, all the ones ive met just love their chicken and fish.

That's because people suck in real life.

I've met people from the other forum I used to frequent. Five of us went on a roadtrip to Louisiana. It was cool..I needed bail money by the time the trip was over, but fun nonetheless.

none of you guys would find me fun in real life, im very monosyllabic and dont show much emotion. just sorta blank. but when i get excited..im more excited than chicks on speed! VB lets me atleast speak and express. the only place i do that in real life is in classroom debates and at shows. so i thank VB for that outlet! and for those of you who dont know, my friends call me monosyllabic because of this song :

Monosylabic Girl

by NOFX



I take her to the aquarium, she says shark

I take her to the planetarium, she says dark

I take her to the seaside

Where she likes to spin and twirl

She says sure and cool and yeah

She's my monosylabic girl

I take her to the university, she says huh

I take her to anniversary, she says one

I take her to jewelry store

I say diamonds, she says pearl

Oh everyone knows I'm in love and yeah

With a monosylabic girl



so VB allows me to be a little more than monosyllabic. plus everyone is so fscking happy on VB, its not like we ***** and moan and whine about everything all the time, if VB was a person they would glow bright yellow!

Aw... I was teasing. For what it's worth, everyone I met at Cedar Point last fall was really cool. I wish I knew people like that around here.

Speak for yourself, chump. IamJen is confident that the VeBoCon attendees will be amazed at her wonderfulness. (as will I toward them)

I also have found that VB filled a painful void in my life, as vitually all my acquaintences and family are omni. How wonderful that there is a place where like-minded people "understand" - have similar angers, frustrations, needs and joys. I had been veg*n for several other periods in my life, and I am ashamed to admit, went back to meat eating. In large part I attribute this to the difficulties of treading a path alone and feeling isolated -- but this is true no longer. I am so happy that August 25 will mark my 2-year anniversary.



Must also echo other's sentiments that I feel welcome inspite of the fact that I am currently following the ovo-lacto route. Although I gave away or sold (& gave the money to a local shelter) all of my leather products quite some time ago, buying only cruelty free, I know that I have a ways to go. With the help of the good people here, I feel that there's no limit to what I can do. Only occasionally I must admit that it's just a tad strange, being one of the seemingly few older posters, as I'm 51 with 3 grown children. But then I've always been a bit of an individualist. Thanks for all you have given me, VB people.



Shalom,

Earthsong

I like VB because I am guaranteed that I'll be able to laugh at someone (and sometimes more then one person!) on a daily basis. And, if I'm very lucky, Tame will post something snide.



I don't like how people are discrediting my omnism by calling me the "fake omni", "not a real omni" and "flexatarian." These are hurtful words, demeaning my omnism and I want more respect from you people.

Do people suck in real life? Dunno.

OH, I forgot to add earlier. One of my favorite things about vb is Tame. He never fails to make me chuckle.
