A momentous occasion!

Last weekend, my friend J and I went to another friend's lake cabin. It was a lot of fun and a lovely relaxing weekend. Most exciting, though, was the fact that this friend's uncle was... vegan!!

You see, while I have 'met' my fair share of vegans through the internet, I've never met one in 'real life' before. Sad, isn't it? I suppose I could always go to one of the vegetarian picnics organized around here, but I haven't gotten around to that yet. Anyways, it was rather exciting to finally meet another vegan. Yayy!

I can't help but laugh at myself, though. I was all excited and nervous about talking to him, as if it were a big deal. We did end up having a little chat about veggie burgers and vegan cheese, which was kinda cool.



In other news... The rain is POURING DOWN right now and I'm getting frustrated because I want to go for a run & have a shower before I go to work, but it seems like this storm isn't going to pass over anytime soon. Guess I'll just have to brave the elements!

yay for meeting another fellow vegan! that is most awesome! dan & i have yet to meet any in person, but i am sure we will soon! :) oh man - rain when you want to run can be such a bother. i usually opt for braving the rain, too! kinda stinks because your running shoes get all wet (and mine always take forever to dry out) - but it is really fun! :D

Yeah, I ended up running through the rain, and it really was quite refreshing... my shoes are still wet though, of course

Ah, I love meeting other vegans. It's only happened twice, but it's so rad.

I know what you mean - vegans are few and far between here in Scotland! Veggie meet-ups are a great way of meeting other like-minded people, though!
