vegetarian wear

anonymous asked:

It always made me uncomfortable how young Bumi wore green and older stayed in uniform all the time. It's like since he was not a bender he could not be a part of his parents cultures. It just upsets me in general how this mixed family never mixed cultural clothing. Would it have killed the creators to make Kya a vegetarian, Tenzin wear water tribe coats in the south pole and Bumi enjoy skinning animals? Bryke was not ready for a mixing of the 4 nations.

I think it’s not so much Bryke not being ready for the four nations mixing (after all, they created Mako and Bolin, as well as the concept of bending triads), so much as them thinking of the “purity” of Aαng’s legacy and not wanting anything associated with other bending types (or nonbending types) to get in the way of that.

Remember how “The Promise” taught Katara to feel bad for expecting her own boyfriend to realize she was feeling left out due to him dropping her like a hot potato for the attention of his airbender fanclub?

(Even when this is a consistent problem in their relationship?)

Remember how Bumi apologized to the statue of Aαng for being a disappointment due to being a nonbender?

Bumi: Uh… hey there, Dad. You’re looking well. Look, uh, I’m sorry I didn’t turn out to be an airbender like you hoped, but I’ve tried my best to keep the world safe. Hope I made you proud.

Remember how Aαng’s supposed spiritual successors had no idea he had two other children (what, Aαng didn’t feel like passing that little factoid onto them)?

Bumi: Ugh. Phew. Excuse me, a little help here?
Air Acolyte woman: Sorry, I thought you were the servants.
Bumi: We’re Tenzin’s brother and sister.
Air Acolyte woman: Avatar Aαng had other children? The world is filled with more airbenders?
Kya: We’re not airbenders.
Air Acolyte woman: Oh. I’m so sorry.

Remember how much focus in the story of LOK is on people with airbending ability, even with no background in airbending philosophy (Kai), versus people with all the cultural background and no airbending ability (Pema)?

Episodes where Pema appears in The Legend of Korra but has no lines:

Book One: Air (气)

Book Two: Spirits (神靈)

Book Three: Change (易)

Book Four: Balance (平衡)

Episodes where Kai appears in The Legend of Korra but has no lines:

Book Four: Balance (平衡)

(And even when Kai has no lines, he is still part of the main action.)

“Kuvira’s Gambit”:

“Day of the Colossus”:

Remember, Bryke have a very different attitude toward nonbenders than the others writers of A:TLA. Bryke see bending in much the same way that Korra does: as an awesome fighting power-up that people who who lack it can never really make up for. It’s no wonder that all the Air Nomads were airbenders due to their “high spirituality” (the irony is amazing considering the lengths Bryke went through to strip anything spiritual from the Avatar mythos in LOK). 

So let’s return to Bumi’s clothing. You mentioned that he was never out of his army uniform, even when it would be practical to do so. Well, once he magically becomes an airbender in Book Three, what happens?:

That’s right. The army uniform he never parted company with before is gone–replaced by airbender clothes! 

Oh, Bryke.

Sorry for the confusion, anonymous again please :-)

What I meant by my statement “I’m not against living an organic lifestyle or deciding to go vegan and or vegetarian, but you can’t just pick and choose which sides of that lifestyle you’ll actually do” if you’re going to be a vegan or a vegetarian you can’t wear anything made with animal. No leather jackets, no purses made from leather, no fur trimmed coats, even the products you use on your body/hair have to be vegan friendly. I personally love leather jackets and my godmother even owned a mink coat that I used to love to play dress up with but then again I’m not showing off promoting my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She’s choosing to eat like a vegan/vegetarian but is still wearing clothing or accessories of a person that is not vegan or vegetarian. She’ll still wear a handbag made from calf skin but won’t eat the eat the animal the bag is coming from. Very hypocritical on her part.The again maybe she’s just choosing to live organic but not eat meat. She’s never actually come out right and say that she is now a vegan or vegetarian. But the things she’s posted have pointed that she’s giving that lifestyle a chance. Her instagram causes more confusion than anything.

Sorry again about the confusion and sorry for adding more questions into this mess that is her life lol.

Hehe nonnie, I think most of the vegetarian choose to be a vegetarian is because they want to eat healthier for their own good, not for being friendlier to the environment or other species. I don’t think G aims to be a vegan, I bet she isn’t even a vegetarian. I doubt if she knows what “organic” means. Like a lot people who just like to follow trends, they’re simply following all the steps these trends told them to, without understanding the meanings behind. So does G imo. Don’t be sorry for anything & thanks for your follow-up! :3 OXOX

This suit is too loose
I am drowning in soft folds
I guess spring is really here—
is it insects I hear? Violins?
Rolled-up washcloths watching the news
argyle socks eating vegetarian Caesar salad
peaches wearing Old Spice
lemon-filled donuts with powdered sugar on top
brilliant blown lights
warm purple pigment pooling in my ears
and gliding down my neck
in a series of dazzling splashes
like an arsonist in the woods.

         —— “ NAH, THEY’RE DIFFERENT things. his voice seems too loud in the quietness of the trattoria. it’s empty, too empty for lunch on a tuesday. sound bounces off the walls, ricochets back and doubles its volume. the only sound that breaks it is the scrape of flatware on china. he moves his fork. the food remains uneaten. vegetarians still wear leather and can eat like, dairy and shit. vegans don’t do any of that. i couldn’t do either. tried, but it never worked. not enough available options or whatever. and leather’s too nice, you know?

‘i saw you throw that wrapper on the ground when there’s a trashcan right over there, dickwheeze’ au OMG PLEASE YES I CAN JUST SEE THIS WITH STEREK

“Hey, hey! Excuse me! Douchebag in the cap!”

Stiles turns on his heel, touching his beloved Mets cap as he does, and peering in the direction of the loud voice. He’s caught off guard when he spots the owner of the tirade– super hot dude, glasses, eyebrows Tom Selleck’d be jealous of, and a worn satchel across his broad chest– and feels torn between glaring and putting on his best come hither face. 

His expression must not come off as alluring in the slightest as the dude stalks right up to him and waves trash in Stiles’ face. 

“This is a first for courting rituals,” Stiles drawls slowly.

A familiar, rhythmic knock at the door made Shaw’s chopsticks pause halfway to her mouth.  Bear, laying nearby, got up and barked an alert.

Blijf,” Shaw told him, and he obediently sat and waited.  She walked over to the door and peered through the peephole to be sure of her visitor.  As expected, Root was on the other side, already smirking at her.

Shaw unlocked the door and opened it without returning the look.

“And where’ve you been?” she asked.

“Ontario,” Root answered, already walking past Shaw and into the loft.

“For a whole week?”  She closed the door.

“Next time I’ll be sure to send you a postcard.”

Shaw put on her classic ‘I don’t have time for this’ look and returned to her microwaved leftovers.  

They sat in comfortable silence for a moment until Shaw asked, mouth full of food, “You want some?”  Root smiled ruefully, already knowing the answer to her question.

“Got any veggie chow mein?”

Shaw chewed thoughtfully for a second, then emphasized, “No.”  Root shrugged.

“I’m fine.  I’ll get something after this.”

Shaw’s eyes wandered to the chair on her right and a jacket lying there.  She snatched it up and unceremoniously tossed it to Root.

“To replace the one that got shot,” she explained.  In the aftermath, Root had seemed almost as upset about the hole in her jacket as the matching one in herself.  Shaw had secretly mourned the passing of the coat as well; it looked damn good on her.  When a similar looking one showed up at work, the decision to purchase it was easy.

Eyes alight, Root hugged it to her chest, then held the gift out to admire it, running her thumbs over the black leather.  Shaw had asked her before how it was that a vegetarian was okay wearing the stuff.  Root said it was a byproduct and thus a waste to not use it.  Shaw hadn’t argued, if only because she associated that new car smell with her now.

Apparently speechless for once, Root got up to try it on.  The fit was perfect, hugging her in all the right places.  She spread her arms and twirled once on the sole of her boot.

“How do I look?”

Shaw took another bite of orange chicken and said, “Back up some.”  Root readily did so, arms still slightly spread.  Shaw held the chopsticks to her mouth thoughtfully.  "Keep going…“  Root smiled at her, confused, but retreated another few feet.  "A little more…”  This time the back of Root’s legs bumped into Shaw’s mattress.  Her smile had a dark, knowing look now.

Shaw flicked the chopsticks at her and quirked a brow, indicating she wasn’t there yet.  

Once Root fell backwards onto the army green comforter, Shaw didn’t hesitate to put down her utensils and join her.

TNFEC50k Race Recap

On Saturday morning, we got up super early (3:45a). Matt’s co-worker Walter was running the 50 mi and doesn’t have a car, so we picked him up. I wasn’t sure how long Matt would take to run, so I brought a change of clothes and my iPad (books) for post race.

The 50 milers went off at 5 am. 

My race didn’t start till 7am, so I waited around and got my stuff together. I waited with my friend Abi, whose husband was doing the 50mi (he’s in the blue shorts and black shirt). She is super prepared for spectating. 

The biggest fear I had about the race was the heat and humidity, I was certain the heat would be the thing that got me. The night before, I checked out my age group winners, the girl who got first did it in 6 hours. I was pretty sure I could do it sub 6, so I decided to aim between 5 and 6 hours for time. Ideally, I would like to do a 50k sub 5, but knew it would not be in the cards for Saturday. 

I was in wave 1 and at 7am off we went. Lots of guys in the back half of the wave were very vocal for the first few miles.

Parts of the course are single track, and there were a few bottle necks. I managed to pass one girl, and I think she was making snake hissing noises. Weird.

Before the race, I had tried going the bathroom but couldn’t.  I found a nice tree about mile 7. So thankful I bring toilet paper on long runs. 

Hill around mile 5 I walked up. I walked up all hills. 

Around mile 10 there was an aid station and a guy was shouting bib numbers. Even with going to the bathroom, I heard him call out my bib number and that I was lead female. That got my adrenaline pumping. A guy behind me asked if heard correctly, and I was just as surprised. I think his name was Dave…we ran together for most of the race. 

Dave behind me.

I think I was lead female for only a few miles. Around mile 14 one passed me. During the 12-13 mile mark Dave and I ran into another guy, Jim, who does a lot of ultras. The 50k was training for a 50miler next week….He commented that we were going pretty fast for an ultra and he thoughtfully slowed us down and talked about running. I mainly listened in. Both cool guys. I kept wanting to call Jim “Scott” because he looks like Scott Jurek. He also said he was vegetarian and was wearing Brooks, so who knows. 

Up at Great Falls we did an few little loops and saw a lot of the 50 milers. I was super excited that I might see Matt. Going up and down a hill we saw him and our friend Zach who was pacing him. 

The 50 milers do the loop 3 or 4 times. Matt tynz1986 will tell you. I was glad to be done with it once. In this section I heard someone call out KATEBIKERUN. I felt like a celebrity. 

Great Falls was a nice little motivation boost for the spectators, I saw our friend Kris, Tara, who was volunteering, and some other folks I knew running the 50 miler. I did lose Jim and Dave when I stopped at an aid station.

I felt good all the way up until about mile 22 when I started really feeling sore in my hips. I caught back up to the guys I had been running with. 

At one of the aid stations I noticed the appx mileage there was way off from what I had on my watch. I asked Jim what he had, and my watch was a whole mile and change off. Which kind of relieved me, since I didn’t have as far to run, but also annoyed me because my watch wouldn’t say 31.07 at the end. I think on the map you can see where the red line just goes straight instead of curves with the trail.

Matt and Zach passed me with about 6 miles to go. This was the hot humid marshy part of the trail. My vocal chord disfunction thing kicked in and made it super hard to breathe in. I was really stretching out my walking times then. 

After mile 22, just holding on to finish!!

I had passed Jim at the aid station, and Dave had ran off, but I later caught up to him. I think he got hurt. I’m a bit disappointed in my second half splits, but the heat caught up to me and not being able to get enough air in also hurt me. I’m not sure if slowing down any in the beginning would of had any effect. 

I’m not sure how I look good…I felt like death. I staggered around the finish area.

Our friend Kris was waiting at the finishers shoot, he said Matt was right behind me. The 50 milers do a little extra loop around the field. I was very relieved to have to not do. I didn’t have to wait long for Matt to finish. 

No blisters or chafing at the end, just extreme soreness! We found ice baths and sat in them for about 10 minutes. 

There was a results tent and we both found out we placed in our age groups!!

I was not sure how many females passed me, but I ended up being 14th female…My time was 5:48 and change. Not as great as I’d like, but good for my first ultra!

Since it was my first one, I didn’t know really what to expect as far as organization. Matt and Zach both ran it last year and they both said it was put on well. Everything seemed pretty organized, and they had a wave start which was smart. I don’t think I would have changed much…maybe a better shirt :D

Also mad my GPS got off track and didn’t get to 31.07 miles. But for once my pace from the race results is better.

anonymous asked:

What is the difference in a non ovo & non lacto vegetarian diet and the vegan one? A collegue told me she is the first one and not a vegan, but the only real difference I can think of is that unlike vegans she can eat honey... ?

The original meaning of vegetarian is technically no meat, no dairy and no eggs. Most people think that’s just a vegan but the difference is veganism is a lifestyle that goes beyond diet and because most vegetarians are lacto-ovo vegetarians which means they have eggs and milk and just don’t have any meats, Ovo (egg) Lacto (milk). (Not speaking for all) but vegetarians usually will still wear leather and other skins/furs and might not avoid animal testing/ other animal exploitation. So her diet is vegan but her lifestyle may not be I’m guessing.
