the vegan 100

I'm home from Europe! Surprise, surprise, I didn't blog from the road... but I'm back with a vengeance- I'm going to shoot for 2 blog posts most days, to make up for my 10-day absence, as well as posting many updates to VeganMoFo Headquarters. Stay tuned for posts about Helsinki, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest, as well as more oldie-but-goodie posts from the photo archives. Here, as a way of easing back in to blogging, is the newest iteration of the Vegan 100 list. If you are also doing this list, I'd love to see yours- let me know!

1) Copy this list into your blog or social networking site profile, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out or italicize any items that you would never consider eating.
4) Optional extra: Post a comment on this post linking to your results.

Now someone just needs to invent a shop that sells all these things in Melbourne! I don't even know what some of them are. So sad!

Well, I only had 52 1/2 ( http://theradioactivegan.blogspot.com/2009/10/vegan-100-another-vegan-mofo-survey.html ), so I have a way to go before I catch up to you!
