Am ill again so Anthology on, first time in a couple of years ive seen it. Was going to watch part 3 but those pesky Beatles made me go back to the beginning.

I was watching that during Christmas holidays, and got stuck at part 4 or 5. After that I kind of forgot about it. Now I've forgotten where I was in which part, so I guess I have to watch it all over again now too. Oh the paina-hard-days-night-george-10

 

Aaaaand I'm actually superhappy. I applied for a summer job in the canteen of the hospital, and they said I looked like a nice and hardworking girl so I got the job. At least it's something. Now I still don't have a job for in the meantime, I'd like to have a more..permanent job. It's actually very hard to find work, BUT I've got 2 job interviews coming up! One for a cinema assistent and one for an ice cream seller, which are both great since the first one means free access to all movies and the latter means free ice cream. I hope one of them will be my new job.

It COULD be possiblea-hard-days-night-george-9

Now let's just hope they'll like me enough to hire.

 

Am I weird for getting all excited about the fact that next week it'll be 10 degrees celsius? I'm so sick of the snow and cold. Let spring arrive!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Is that 50 degrees Fahrenheit? I think I did the math right...

And no, that's not weird. I love most weather (except excessive heat), but even I am getting sick of the cold. Hooray for spring!

I say anbody who DOESN'T anxiously await the end of winter is weird!

It's been raining/snowing/just below/above freezing here (Toronto-ish) for the past few days, so we get a new layer of disgusting slush one day, only for it to freeze during the night. Argh!

Oooo, latest company having to withdraw products for horsemeat contamination in Europe is Taco Bell UK. How good is the testing in your country? And for those vegetarians laughing at us meat eaters, how sure can you be that your vegetarian cheese isn't animal rennet being passed off as? We all need to be asking questions about what these long food chains are doing!

It's called vegan cheese, if it has rennet in it, then it says so on the package.

We've been being sold lots of things that say beef on the packet, and when they bothered testing turned out to be horsemeat. That was my point, how much can we rely on what it says on the package! So far as I know "vegan cheese" is something completely different to cheese marked as suitable for vegetarians. Difference being that "vegan cheese" has no animal products in it, while "vegetarian cheese" replaces animal rennet with a vegetarian alternative rennet ("from either fungal/bacterial sources or genetically modified micro-organisms" - The Vegetarian Society). There are lots, if not the majority, of vegetarians who do not exclude dairy products, "vegan cheese" is for those who exclude dairy products.

But to re-emphasise my original point, while lots of vegetarians may find it mildly amusing and karma, that meat-eaters have been fooled into eating a meat that appalls them, herbivore or carnivore, we should all be asking more questions about the testing regimes that tell us what the label says it is is what it is.

My mom told me the other day that it's come out that IKEA meatballs are made with horse and reindeer meat (and a little bit of beef, I think). I was horrified because back when I used to eat meat, I had these quite a lot! She said, well, actually, they have done nothing wrong. Nowhere on the packet does it say that they're beef or pork meatballs. That had never struck me before, and I felt a little sick for a while :(

Mja, you're right, we all need to be more careful about what we put in our mouths now. Hopefully this scandal will make more people do more home-cooking. That way you know exactly what's gone into it.

Much as I hate to disagree with your mom, fabfouremily, I have to disagree. All foods have to have an ingredients list, and that ingredients list includes the meat content, and what that meat is. In the case of IKEA meatballs, according to the ingredients list, it was meant to be a mixture of beef and pork. No horse. No reindeer (haven't heard they found reindeer in it). If it doesn't have horse or reindeer in the ingredients, it shouldn't have horse or reindeer in the product.

I see what you're saying mja, I didn't know if they put horse ( I heard something about reindeer on the news), on the ingredients list or not. My mom was just saying that they never actually said they were beefballls (tho I suppose if that's what they put on the ingred. list then that's what should be in them). All as bad eachother. Are they really making so little money that they have to buy cheap horse meat to fill the food with? And lie to the consumers?

I should, at this point, admit to being a complete barbarian. I have no problem with the idea of eating horse meat. Bambi's very tasty. I look at our teeth and say we are, by nature, an omnivore. I have at times been a vegetarian, dragged back constantly by the smell of bacon. I just choose to avoid low welfare production. I just want to know WHAT I'm eating! Is that too much to ask for? I'm not saying no to anything until I've tried it and found I don't like the taste, but give me the damn choice and don't trick me into eating it!

Some ethnic people here still eat "exotic" food like dog meat.

I can't see any real problem with eating horse meat either. Supposedly it's as tasty and generally healthier than beef. But I guess in the Western world most people have a moral objection to eating horses because they seem so companionable or something. Same goes for dog. Or is the eating of dogs evil because they're so intelligent?

By nature, we are not omnivores. We only became omnivores after the flood, really. Also, I meant to say vegetarian cheese, don't know why I said vegan cheese.

So we were herbivores before the flood?

Yeah, we had to become omnivores because all the vegetation got destroyed because of the flood.

Bambi's not a horse but, still, I agree with you. I'm veggie and I think it's wrong to eat animals (I see it the same way as eating your brother, for example), but if I did eat meat, I would not have a problem with eating horse. It's all meat so what's the difference between eating pork or dog? If you can eat one type of meat then you can eat it all.
