 n.— «Lord knows vegetarianism is forever a struggle for me, and not just because of the odours. I really like meat. I’ve taken to calling myself a “vegepreferian,” meaning I don’t eat dead animals for the most part, but if someone has cooked it and offers it to me, I will not refuse.» —“Cooked to death” by Elizabeth Bromstein NOW Magazine (Toronto, Can.) July 21, 2005.
