Interview: Annie Niehoff Gets Her Vitamin K Just By Knowing There’s Cereal in the Cabinet

annie-faceThe world is small, and it’s even smaller if you do improv. You see, improv is a cult wherein all members are automatically best friends even if they’ve never really “met.” Ugh, technicalities!

Anyway, my best friend Annie Niehoff runs a really awesome blog, which she interviewed me for after I begged her to do so. (I’ll link to that later so you don’t get distracted.) I figured, since Annie let me type words on her blog, it would only be fair to subject her to my snarky awfulness by interviewing her here. Plus maybe I wanted to get to know her better because I think she’s fantastic. Though, not vegan. Sigh. No one’s perfect.

Meet Annie Niehoff.

Ellen Isn’t Vegan and Neither is Anyone

ellenPlease see my post Beyonce Isn’t Vegan and Neither is Anyone and replace all the “Beyonce”s with “Ellen”s.*

*No, I don’t think it’s cool that Ellen is selling animal products like leather.

*No, I don’t think it’s reasonable to sell (or buy) a $1,500 scarf when that money could be donated to an effective non-profit or spent on food for months.

*Yes, I signed the petition to ask Ellen to drop the leather products. And you should too.

*This is satire. I still love you.

A Non-Violent Conversation About Violence

ahimsaAhimsa is a term a lot of vegans know and love. Derived from sanskrit, it’s a term that means “compassion” and “not to injure.” I’m all for compassion and not injuring others, which is, like, totally the reason I’m vegan (it’s not because I want to fit in). But is violence ever okay? This question looms especially in the midst of the Baltimore Uprising, during which some (sooome) protesters acted violently. Some police acted violently, too. Violence is on a lot of our minds.

So, I sat down (at separate computers – thanks, Google Docs!) with my friend Allison over at The Book Wheel to discuss. This discussion is purely philosophical and does not necessarily represent our views. In other words, I think we both like to debate, so we may have played devil’s advocate a bit. We raise some controversial issues that you might agree with, or you might disagree with and actually leave me a comment. Win, win, right? Here’s our chat. Continue reading

Tip 22: If You Can’t Say Anything Vegan: “Meat is Murder.”

veganmofoPosted as part of VeganMoFo (The Vegan Month of Food) 2014

When vegans are involved, things get a little tricky – for all of us. For non-vegans, that often looks like defensiveness or hostility due to the perception that vegans are telling them their food choices are unethical or wrong. For vegans, it often looks like self-righteousness and snobbery. So, I’m using the Vegan Month of Food – a month during which vegan blogs are celebrated and aggregated in one place – to teach non-vegans and vegans how to be nice to each other. As the old saying goes, “If you can’t say anything vegan, don’t say anything at all.”

“MEAT IS MURDER.”
Vegans and vegetarians, please stop saying this. Morrissey, you do whatever you want.

Tip 20: If You Can’t Say Anything Vegan: “People Who Abuse Animals Should Be Abused/Killed.”
