Ten years a vegetarian
I stopped eating meat in August 1995. I haven't (knowingly) eaten meat or fish since. But I have eaten a lot of Quorn sausages.

I was sharing a flat in Greenside Court with qidane at the time. Since we cooked most of our meals together, his meat consumption dropped considerably too. I don't know whether he has forgiven me for that, but he still often orders vegetarian food when eating out.

I was reading some Miss Marple short stories last night. In one of them - The Herb of Death - Mrs Bantry says: "...don't use the word flesh. Vegetarians always do. They say, 'I never eat flesh' in a way that puts you right off your nice little beefsteak. Mr Curle was a vegetarian. He used to eat some peculiar stuff that looked like bran for breakfast. Those elderly stooping men with beards are often faddy. They have patent kinds of underwear, too."

congrats on ten years!

Congratulations too. I shan't ask if you've needed special underwear over the years.

That's not nice. I am now thinking of old men in patent leather underwear, and that wasn't a thought I needed to have :)
