Post by: zero sky on October 25, 2009, 09:46:21 AM
I've read all west's books, but i just wanted to know what kinds of other people like them to, to somewhat get a "background on people so maybe it would be easier for others to join and or get to know others already on here, that or you can click the home link or search of log out and completely ignore this and laugh about it in like 5 min when your up to get a drink or...yeah....

thanks saira-la  :)   being veggie was hard at first but i'm pretty used to it now although sometimes people can find it strange- in my religious studies class i'm the only veggie so when we talk about animals i get asked a lot of questions so i feel a bit odd lol
i tend to get a little distracted when i first revise but then i get really into what i'm doing and if people distract me i get quite annoyed- i usually revise on my own so i don't let my stress get to other people
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: G-la on November 05, 2009, 12:55:20 AM
i love vegi-heads lol i made that up lol, or atleast i think i did lol, and i get meat-munchies to often, i think sushinia good lol
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: Chloe-Wa on November 05, 2009, 06:52:58 AM
i can do vegi but don't think i could manage vegan- that would mean giving up chocolate and custard and all those fab things lol. wow- camel sounds different- there is a continental market that comes to my city a few times a year and they sell stuff like kangaroo and crocoidle. ye most my classes have similar people in so if you are slightly different you attract a lot of attention lol.  i manage being vegi but i'm not good with diets either- i crash diet and end up failing miserably after like a week  :-[  i've never heard anyone say vegi-head before g-la so you should be proud that you invented it  :)  i think i borrowed it in one of my posts in another topic
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: G-la on November 06, 2009, 12:33:02 AM
camel??? kangaroo??? thats wierd, but i just took the same termonolagy from uglies, pretty-head, vegi-head, lol so far iv managed to eat a salad for lunch twice this week
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: Chloe-Wa on November 06, 2009, 04:10:59 AM
yep- vegan means no animal by-products like eggs or milk  :(     my best friend loves squid  :)   
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: G-la on November 07, 2009, 12:30:25 AM
omg thats crazy but i love squid so its alright lol
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: Chloe-Wa on November 09, 2009, 05:55:31 AM
i think my nan likes tongue. sometimes there are foods that i want to try but can't cos i'm vegi like squid and also deer which is supposed to be very nice- it's always on cooking shows  :) but i'd feel bad if i ate any meat now and i don't really feel bothered any more cos i'm so used to it
Title: Re: Background.
Post by: Chloe-Wa on November 09, 2009, 10:11:39 AM
i love to try new restaurants and its great because loads of places have really good vegi options so i don't have to worry much about being stuck for options  :)   lol about the sweat thing its kind of like that with garlic as well

Idk why I think that being at a boarding school would be so cool, but I do. lol I love to perform onstage but the only big production I've been a part of was a production of The Wizard of Oz! x) It was great fun. XD I'm not a horridly picky eater, but I am TOTALLY picky about desserts and breakfast foods. Idk why... lol My favorite music selections are folk, jazz, rock, alternative, showtunes, et cetera... I'm a very eclectic music-listener. x) Erm... I believe that's all. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me anything! x)
