Seriously, how bad could it be? [21 Mar 2006|11:08pm]

[ mood | am i a bad person? ]

I want to make a pop up book that gently tells the story of a chicken who grows up in the factory farming system. I wouldn't have graphic pop ups showing chickens getting beheaded or getting their beaks seared off, and I even have a happy ending planned. It's for intermediate creative writing; a class where my teacher is very open to students doing their own thing. Should I be crucified for even having this idea?

...but i like jell-o! [25 Dec 2003|06:11pm]

[ mood | curious ]


i'm not sure what to do about it.
there's beef gelatin, and then there's vegetable gelatin. most labels will just say 'gelatin' and not specify. am i supposed to assume it's vegetable? if it says 'beef gelatin' i won't eat it, but if it doesn't specify, i will. (namely because it's not like chunks of beef or something floating in it, and i usually like the food anyways) also, there's so many foods like at restaurants, potlucks, etc, that probably have it in them anyhow, and it's too much to find out if it has gelatin in it or not. i mean, even moon pies have gelatin in them.

really, it doesn't bother me as much as it kinda frustrates me.. just looking for opinions.

by the way, i am new.. been a vegetarian for about 2 1/2 years now- been a member of the community for a while, but am just now getting around to posting.

so, hello.

just a rant. [05 Nov 2003|02:20pm]

[ mood | bleargh! ]

Just a rant. So someone in my office comes back from the cafeteria with bean soup. Mmmm, warm bean soup, and it smells good. I’m fighting off the ends of a head cold and bean soup sounds like the best thing in the world right about now. So, I go and I get some, with some cornbread. Mmm… cornbread. Ah, my sinus are clearing and my stomach is settling already, just holding warm, good smelling soup in my hands.

Keeping in mind, I’ve even mentally steeled myself and my stomach for the inevitable “Ham Bone Flavor” that everyone outside the veggie world seems to think is essential to beans. As long as I don’t actually get a chunk of ham in my soup, I’m ready to ignore that. I’m ready to forgive, move on, be thankful for the rich creamy beans that I’ve got, and let it be.

What did I get? I got bright yellow with fat, overly salty and CHICKEN flavored white bean soup. ::sigh:: I ate it, I’m sick, I’m hungry and the beans were wonderfully creamy and soft and exactly what I wanted. But the chicken, bleach! Too fatty, too salty. At least there weren’t outright chicken bits in it. I cannot understand what motivates someone to cook beans in chicken gravy (after the beans thickened it up, that’s pretty much what it tasted like), like they aren’t tasty without adding something dead! ::grumble grumble grumble::

Now I’m resolved to go home and make some sort of wonderful VEGAN lentil squash soup in atonement to my body. It didn’t deserve that. The cornbread was salty and fatty, but that’s just how this place’s cornbread is, it’s kind of comforting in it’s soul food-ish goodness. Wish I had a bread machine so I didn’t have to knead bread with sick hands (tends to make me think biscuits, actually).

I’m just so disappointed, in the cafeteria, in myself, in the world that sometimes feels like it is DELIBERATLY trying not to get it. Very frustrating. ::grin:: I was hoping some of the readers here could sympathize.

What do you guys think of Cup Of Soup and Top Ramen? I have been refusing to eat them, because once you mix the seasoning in, don't they have chicken broth? That's what a friend of mine told me, at least.

And what do you guys think of gravy? I don't use it either, but I want to know what other people think of these things.

hmm. i just joined but i read something recently that being a vegetarian was in. i wasn't angry but saddened because it has become a fad and think of all those people who will give it up just like we gave up flannel, bell bottoms, ect.

and also: PETA is obviously a terrorist organization. dubya should take care of them. and france too. let us never forget that sweet, sweet land of wine and BO.

Just joined.

Hm. There's this kid in my class who's a vegetarian. I asked him why he didn't eat meat, and he said that he thought killing animals for our own selfish purposes was wrong. It's pretty..ironic, or so to speak, that all of his shoes are made out of leather.

This is a stupid question but I'm asking anyway.

Would honey be a product to give up if going vegan, even though it comes from an insect?

what i really hate is when you tell someone you're a vegetarian, then they ask why, so you go into this long explination of what you believe and they reply, "that's stupid".

shouldn't have asked them idiot.

so passe [14 Feb 2003|12:02am]

We have to write a persuasive essay in my writing class, and I'm writing mine on why you should become a vegetarian.
This girl tells me that she's also writing about the same topic, and I ask her if she's actually a vegetarian. She says, 'No, but I didn't know what else to write! Hehe!'

Then I was all about stomping on her face.

That German model Heidi Klum was on Conan O'Brien last night, and she talked about how she was a vegetarian, but still LOVED to eat sausage and bacon. Did anyone else see that? Pathetic.

the threat is real [09 Feb 2003|08:09pm]

it really bothers me when people say, 'animals can't talk or think so it's okay to eat them!'

one of my main pet peeves is people who become vegetarians and have NO CLUE how to keep themselves healthy.

these are usually the people who stopped eating meat because some celebrity did, or wanted to be a part of some "fad".

there also those cases that you hear about on the news that become anemic because they lived off of fruity pebbles and ice cream.

i mean, becoming a vegetarian is a healthy, alternative way of life. if you're not going to keep yourself heathy, why do it?

Did any of you see that fear factor awhile ago? My sister was watching it and they had to stick their heads in cow blood or something?
That makes me sick.
Using animals for their own twisted fucked up entertainment. Ugh.
