||Vegan 1+ yrs
vegetarian 7 + yrs prior to that
||I don't remember
consciously deciding to become vegetarian, it was just something
that happened when I started losing interest in one meat
at a time until there was nothing left. Eventually I said
that I was doing it for ethical reasons, but I never really
read up on any specific information... plus I'm very sensitive
and rather enjoyed my blissful ignorance; confronting the
reality of what the animals go through can be overwhelmingly
painful. After receiving the encouragement I needed from
a friend, I took the step into veganism & allowed myself
to read a little each day--as much as I could handle--about
the plight of the animals. Now you will find me involved
in various aspects of animal rights activism--from campaigning
against foie gras, to well...this :)

hear that someone is veg*n, I actually purr...

knitting, crafting, learning to ride my bike, dykes, genderqueers,
urban gardening, horticulture, cooking, thunderstorms, pink
things, unusual planters, fresh cut grass, tofu!, walking
my kitten, the mudflap girl, cotton candy, lip balm, lucite
rings (lucite is a fancy name for plastic), vintage necklace
charms, flip-flops, pOOchie, smell-good things, rescued
farm animals, kiddles, the chipettes, making random craft
oddities such as perfume, jewelry, marble magnets, flowerpots,
& layered scrap-art.
