Feel so sorry for raw vegans. Who would choose that?
I had a friend that went raw vegan for a time. We were both bringing salads to work. Mine was in essentially a giant mixing bowl with a lid. Hers was in a little tupperware container that not even my chicken would have fit in. Mine had greens, 'cado, bacon, chicken, tomato, carrot, cuke, and half the fridge in it. Hers had lettuce, tomato, carrot, and some sort of raw nut "for the protein."
Guess whose salad the guys were drooling over.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Huh, I didn't realize the "raw" in "raw vegan" meant uncooked--I thought it was more along the lines of ... "unaltered", as in, no pesticides used to grow the food or something like that.
How does that not get incredibly boring, incredibly fast?
Edit - I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it does indeed mean uncooked (or at least partly).

Kryten - Sir ... are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb.
They also once took me to a restaurant that had an extensive raw vegan selection. I tried the soup which was tasty but utterly unfilling, and crackers made from seeds pressed and dried which were weird. And a juice on the side. Luckily for me it was inbetween mealtimes!
I've had people ask if I was vegetarian so many times in so many hilarious ways. For example:
The cashier right before she picks up the giant bags of shrimp and fish.
A guy in my new section at work while I was eating beef stew. Didn't understand that one; I just looked at him funny and showed him my bowl.
My new squad leader which lucky for him, wasn't around food at the time. We did have a long conversation on nutrition afterwards. Though, now he wants me to lecture the squad, which I don't feel comfortable doing because I certainly don't like people lecturing me on what I eat, and theirs tends to be less controversial, if wrong.
