Well, hello there.<br><br><br><br>
My names Stuart, and I'm a veg*n.<br><br><br><br>
Been gradually moving to a stricter interpetation for the few years. Used to say I eat lacto-vegetarian, but realised last week I've not actually eaten any cheese (which was the last hold out) for, oh, 3 months - and that I don't particarly want to. So I'm eating a vegan compatable diet.<br><br><br><br>
I'm a PhD student from the Uk, doing chemistry/physics. Other interests include computing [0], sound engineering, pen and paper RPG's. My crafty side perfroms lapidary work.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, enough blathering from me.

Wow! Now that's one of the warmest recpetions I've seen on the Web in a long time.<br><br><br><br>
Lapidry work is, indeed, gemstones, borealis. Hobbyists tend to stick to the semi-precious stones (costs reasons!). It's very good for developing patience, taking a long time to do much with them. Worth it in the end though.<br><br><br><br>
And I say vegan-compatible, because I don't fully follow the vegan philosophy, although I must say I hold a lot of respect for those who do. Maybe I will in time. I do, however, not want to dilute that term. I noticed that up here vegan is often taken just to mean dietry vegan, and the rest of the meaning is lost, and I don't want to contribute to that.<br><br><br><br>
Nice to see more UK people around - it's a big internet out there, and too easy to get lost in.
