Go Vegan!

Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. -Norman MacEwan

Jopa: great garbanzo dude, I'm going to blow my forking top if people don't stop saying such stupid shiitake. I am so sick of people trotting out wholesale accommodation of their insecurities as feminist.

IJDI: hey, sorry to have called you out on that thread. I could just see that everyone was going a little internet crazy and it wasn't a productive argument anymore. vegfoodie is totally wrong and I think she's probably just backtracking on how judgmental she was and saying that it's just her feelings on her personal experience.

anyway, everything you said was totally right, i think she just doesn't know how to have a discussion on the internet, so no amount of rational debate was going to make her see that she was wrong.

undersweptrug:Creepy stalker breathing!

We definitely need to find some sexy boys.

USR:I see you!
URS again!:Hmmm... I just noticed this little section of the board.

I posted something, in the District 9 thread. But you'll just have to get used to the fact that I'm a lurker, honey. The Patty board is the only place I've ever posted with any regularity - and I haven't even posted there in several months.

alfre-do: hey - can't find your email but the zine is done and i'm trying to get off of my asparagus about it. Send me your address and I'll get a copy of each in the mail to you shortly.

Thanks again!


Pamela <3!:subject: GOD: wait til James Lee sees your thread. She's been doing nothing but adding anti choice republican filth to this site for a week.

i liked it though. smile

slodki: what is your avatar of? i know it is of your but what limbs are where?

Barbie: subject: did you....
ever here from the cute wizard boy?
barbie: subject re: did you..
i'm sorry. i was hoping he'd call you

kmouse: corn waffles
Here's the recipe in the book which will yield 6 9"x9" waffles.

7 cups regular oats
8-9 cups water
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup oil
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dates or 1/4 cup honey (use agave)
2 TB vanilla or maple extract

Stir all ingredients together in bowl. Blend 3 cups of batter at a time for 15 seconds and pour into another bowl. Repeat procedure until all batter is blended. Prepare waffle iron by brushing lightly with oil. Close lid and preheat on high 5-8 minutes. When iron is hot, sprinkle with sesame seeds on bottom for easy removal and enhanced flavor. Pour 1 3/4 cup batter over seeds and sprinkle more seeds on top of batter. Close lid and bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool waffle. Before freezing or stacking place saran wrap or waxed paper between waffles.

*I think this makes too much so I've modified the recipe to make about 3 round belgian waffles.

1 3/4 cup oats
2 cups water
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/8 cup oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 cup agave or 4-5 large dates, pitted
1 TB vanilla extract

I just put all this in the blender and blitz for 15 seconds.


You are so sweet! I got my package today. You have been through a lot lately and you still manage to be sweet and kind. Thank you so much. I hope things look up for you!

Isa: sub: pics of me!

Can you take them off your flickr? I look like shiitake. Thanks.
isa: re: pics of me!

You don't look that bad!
I got four of them, not sure if their are any others.

Thanks a lot!

HD: Gathering 2.0
I ticked the box on the gathering registration indicating that I had room, so I think the organizers might be arranging the allocations. I don't want to make any promises and screw up their arrangement if they've already paired me up with someone. Did you fill in that bit, too?

Esme: sub: we saw
we're just letting it sit right now.

mike and jordan are together this weekend, so neither of them is likely to be on anytime soon.

but thanks for reporting it!

debya: sub sorry!!
I deleted your response to Isa's new person post. I totally need sleep and misread it. I thought it said it was for new people.

You can hate.


Debya: cheap places to stay subject
Thanks for your suggestion. I've added it to the master list and deleted your post to keep things tidy in the thread.


awww you are so sweet!

i don't want you to feel as if you have to get us anything, we are doing great! but i know how it is with cute baby stuff, so if you just can't help yourself, we love brightly colored soft things. if it makes you say "awww," it will probably make us say "awww," too.

address removed


HD: just wondering...
Yeah, I just saw her this last weekend at a friend's birthday party. To be honest, we don't talk much since the roadtrip, but I don't really want to talk about the whole situation. But she seems to be doing okay. As okay as she ever is, in any case.


HD again:
Just click "resign". I think it may end when both of us pass twice without playing, but "resign" is quicker.

bt: I forgot I wanted to give you my phone number!!

:::added to skype if i need it:::


elouise: Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I mailed your CDs today. Who knows when you'll get them since we're clear across the continent from each other, but they're on the way!

many more swap partners and address i should back up but i think they are all outdated

PArty moments of confusion

Seriously, Party's identity issues are expanding.
First he was a lap dog, ok sure fine.

Then a cat or cat-o-weiler?

now he's a parrot or perhaps Rot-a-rot?

Don't know if you can tell based on these pictures, but this is Party my 80lbs Rottweiler sitting on my shoulder.

After slowly sliding himself over the back of my chair, from the couch 3 feet away, to slowly climb onto the top of this chair to drape himself over my shoulders before finally kicking his barely touching the couch feet and pulling himself onto the back of the chair/my head.

[00:54] B_A_D: Also I am in the living room
[00:55] Nanakon [ ⑨ ]: Well you're in a tactically unsound position, it's your fault.
[00:55] B_A_D: T.T
[00:58] Nanakon [ ⑨ ]: You must learn to fortify your position, nomatter where you are.
[01:01] B_A_D: evidently
[01:02] Nanakon [ ⑨ ]: Well just be thankful it wasn't a glitter attack, or you would have been done for.
[01:05] B_A_D: true enough

Halifax's Vegan Association Recipe Zine! Call out for Vegan Recipes, Stories, Articles etc

The Halifax Vegan Association (and yours truly) are putting out a vegan recipe zine for free distribution to the public. I'm hoping to get both zine copies printed to be sent up and maybe host a scanned version of the original for an e-zine and so other groups will be able to re-print and distribute the zine to spread the vegan love.

As such I will be hosting a Vegan Recipe Zine Workshop on Sunday January 31th 2pm-6pm at the Dalhousie Women's Center in Halifax N.S., including Pizza and a community Potluck.

More importantly, for the extended vegan community (This means YOU! Internet) I am still looking for any recipe submissions, going vegan stories, articles, art work or simple zine pages you would like to have published in this zine.

Feel free to send me submission via e-mail (bad_blanch_amanda at hotmail).

Stay Vegan!
