VEGAN RANT- Ok today like every thursday I went the arbor room after my AIDS class to chill before going to work. Sal works there and usually gets a break so we can hang out and the bonus, I get free food, umm free food . . . sadly it was busy and Salvo couldn't take a break. I sat there with $3 in my pocket and realized that does't get me far *elitest basterds* so I go up and grab 2 veggie jamacian patties. I was so hungry that I was eating it in line (actaully I always do that, nothing new) I thought to myself you know this might not be vegan. I was kinda ok with that, 'cause really this vegan thing is new to me and I get get it right all the time, but the look of disgust on Marikies face was extream. So I say , I guess these aren't vegan, she said NO, there not even vegetarian. Not even vegetarian, how does that make sence! These are the veggie patties. You have choice of beef or vegetable how can't these been vegetarian, all they have in them is vegetables. But as marike informs me, and I get confirmation later on, the pastery is made with beef broth, and actually these vegi patties are not vegitarian.
I can't hardly explain how weak I felt when I heard. I sat there in shock, I eat these all the time. I had been eatign beef broth for years of beign veggie. And honesty I don't know what scared me more that fact, or taht I contimplated if I should eat them. I always thought my veggie world was so strong, nothing coudl shake it, yet in that hungry moment I almost caved. Honestly I had one last bite, before throughing it away. I was like, will I will never have the chance to eat this again . . . . by the way I did email the manager and let her know that there are some angry vegetarian and vegans out there and we would appriciate it if she labled the food properly, since calling them veggie patties is misleading
On lighter news, my swimming lessons ended today and one of my swimmers gave me a $20 gift certificate for LCBO!!! They love me they really do . . ..
