I quit eating mammals and poultry early this fall. It's mostly a secret. My husband knows, but I try to keep it quiet- people get really upset. I still eat the occasional fish (mostly sardines- much more sustainable) and if I'm a guest and I can't get away with skipping a meat dish I take a very small portion. I get my eggs from someone I know, but I eat eggs. I'm very lactose intolerant but I do eat a little cheese. And I'd never try to feed my cats that way- they're obligate carnivores, it's cruel. My dog actually does better with fish/veg protein, she's allergic to poultry and beef/lamb give her digestive problems (dog diarrhea is not fun).

My husband still eats meat, and that doesn't bother me- I still do all the grocery shopping, I still cook for him, I just don't eat it. My mobility problems are better, the eczema calmed down some, and our grocery bill is down substantially. He eats less meat now because I cook dishes (for me) that he tries and likes. The point isn't to "convert" him- he just isn't accustomed to veg dishes being enjoyable or palatable.

Really, truly, I don't care what you eat. I bought a couple pounds of bacon at Costco on Tuesday. I really, really don't care. Everyone has their own situation and their own shit to deal with. I did it because I have environmental impacts I don't control (a long commute I can't change), food intolerances (giving up meat helped my joint pain a lot and I'm less broken out and itchy), and an ever-increasing grocery bill.

I feel really powerless about all of those- I can't afford to move closer, I can't make my body stop freaking out, and couponing is usually only good for processed/packaged goods, which I don't buy in non-Costco quantities anyway. I make my own cheese, y'all. I garden as much as possible in a tiny lot. I draw the line at making my laundry detergent- that assumes my labor is worth nothing.

      Tom posted the video from January as a premier so there was a live chat. He included Thomas’ birthday gift opening. Super fans gifts were front and center. I think she got him more than anyone else did. 
      Lots of Hannah footage.  Also Sophia's birthday party. Not much else just some random footage. 

      Crooked Teeth knows that Thomas is Tom’s favorite. Everyone does since Tom has announced that on lives and in front of his other children. Another parenting fail but that’s another matter for another post.

      Crazykins was just showing off in a calculating & manipulative effort to impress Tom.

      Wow! I cannot believe I missed this in real time! I was buried in the old S'Morton archives when the ferrets found me to break the news and bring much needed supplies. Super happy for those boys!

      I agree with the rest of your comment, but this stood out to me. Seeing her in that video is the first time I’ve felt empathy for her. She really is a victim of Paul! I hope she escapes his clutches before they bring children into the world!

      She just seems so young and naive. I imagine Paul manipulated her into what she is today. I wonder what her parents think.
