Veganuary Revisited: Fast Food Goes Green(?)

19 February 2020

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that fast food doesn’t tend to cater itself towards the vegan/vegetarian community.

Veganuary may have paved the way for […]

FREE ME FROM THIS CURSED FLESH-TOMB, or, The Art of Bitching

23 November 2019

I have a bad habit. When someone asks how I’m doing I say, ‘Pretty good’, and then a second later I look up at them and correct myself: ‘Actually, pretty shit’.
