Just got back from a party at Aarons. It was good fun. I need to do “stuff”, a bit more often. Anyway, this was more of a gathering of people, I mean, at least, no furniture was broken this time :).

Conversations before this. “Hey her-reesh, you want something specific to eat? You’re vegetarian right?” I go, “No, anything vegetarian is fine, thanks”.

Standard response, “God, that’s so specific, all I eat is meat”.

I remembered the earlier vegetarian post. It’s like I’m part of some poor rare misunderstood species, in a good way. I got to play a part in deciding the vegetarian menu for the SES meet. Stuff like that.

And, I need an XBOX, or a Playstation. Actually, I want a GameCube. First I need a $400 video card for a machine, which I am not able to get myself to buy. Hmm.

This is a printer-friendly version of the journal entry “Living a little” from actuality.log. Visit to read the original entry and follow any responses to it.

    ah, the midwest….actually, i always thought there were a decent number of vegetarians in ann arbor, compared to most of the midwest. it’s the opposite here – hard to find people who actually eat meat sometimes. at one point, 60-70% of my office was either vegetarian or vegan. i actually felt guilty for ordering chicken sometimes when we’d go out to lunch.

    It’s settled then, I am apping to Berkeley for a post doc :).

    But actually, it is not so bad here either. One of my smaller classes, when I did get to find out people’s dietary preferences, I realized 40% were vegetarian/vegan.
