i don't eat meat. but i eat fish. and dairy. so to say i'm a half-assed vegetarian would be an understatement. but i often do just to avoid the whole explanation.

timezone: move around a lot? avalantern can detect your timezone for you, but if you'd prefer, you can set it in your settings
dear diary...: want to jot a quick note to yourself? want to write a little journal entry that no one else can see? when you post a blog, you can set the security to limit viewers to only you. your searches will still scan through, so it works just like any other blog. except no one else can see it!
