Okay, all you "new schoolers" who haven't posted in the Old School thread, here is your chance. (This is especially for our former-VWers out there.)<br><br><br><br>
Give us a brief intro, so that newbies can get the lowdown on what you're about.

I'm Krista. My name is Krista. Please refer to me as Krista. There is a long, boring story as to why I had to choose Kristadb, but long story short, it's Krista. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I'm a VWer, cat lover, caretaker of 6 generations of aquatic snails, big boobed, bigger mouthed, hates debating in this forum, has 5+ years of debate experience, history buff, writer...That's about it.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and I find Tame obnoxious...in an endearing sort of way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Really, anyone. It is more for those of you that have introduced yourselves previously, and your threads have disappeared/migarted down the board.<br><br><br><br>
This way, newbies can kind of check up on who hangs out in these here parts.

Don't be confused. It might "look" similar, but they are two very different places. This place is nowhere near as sterile as VR and here you're actually allowed a dissenting opinion "without" having to post your "vegan" life story first. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Allrighty, here goes.<br><br><br><br>
I'm 28, soon to be 29 (less than a month. Ack!). I've been a vegetarian for a little over 6 years and have been attempting the vegan lifestyle for the past year or so. I say attempting b/c I live in Nebraska and there's not a whole lot of options at restaurants for vegans, so when I'm at a restaurant and there isn't a vegan option, I will eat dairy and eggs. Also, I don't worry about whether there's whey in my dinner roll.<br><br><br><br>
I've been a volunteer at the humane society coming up on 4 years. Deciding to volunteer is one of the best things I've ever done.<br><br><br><br>
I have an almost 8 year old cat who is actually Satan in feline form, but I love her dearly.<br><br><br><br>
Hmmm...what else? Not much. Guess that's it.

I'm 44 years old, was vegetarian for several years, and I've been vegan for 2 years, which is one of the best things I've EVER done! I'm single, the head of a financial department for a private art college, have a fine arts degree, and I teach beading techniques on the side (not at the college). I have a wonderful 21-year old daughter who's going to college to become a teacher (I did not give birth to her - I used to be married to her father, who was a widower when I met him), and 4 amazing cats. I'm very open-minded and patient, like to be intellectually challenged, and I prefer the company of animals to most people. Animals "wow" me, and I can't get enough of them - wish I had the ability to take care of every sick, abandoned/neglected, abused, injured animal. I know I have enough love for all of them! I enjoy solitude when I can get it, as I'm around a lot of people most of the time between my 2 jobs. I love reading, listening to music, food (reading about it, preparing it, eating it, talking about it, etc.), and learning new things. I think there are some terrific and big-hearted individuals on this board, and I go through withdrawal if I don't get my daily "fix"! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hmm.. I'm 26 and I became a vegetarian about 12 years ago and I made the switch to vegan about 4 months ago and I haven't looked back since. I always thought that being a vegan would be so difficult. I mean, I grew up in the dairy capital of Canada. I never thought I'd be able to give up my beloved Kraft Dinner <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:"><br><br>
I have a cat, Katy aka the Antichrist and I'm living in sin with my omni s/o <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
Unfortunately, I'm the only veg*n around here... well I have yet to meet another veggie. Actually, I do work with a guy who claims to be a vegetarian but the only thing he doesn't eat is red meat... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">
