I find it easier to think of them as meat-eating vegetarians.

To me there is enough gray area in these things (blogging with ad revenue? owning a rent house? consulting? selling garage sale items for a profit? a volunteer activity that someone will pay you for?) that I don't feel a need to tell someone you are or aren't retired and would leave it to the individual.
Subjectivism in action!

Here is my part time gig, 6-10 days in the spring, 20 days in the fall.
I am doing it for the money, but I can't lie, it is fun also. Rides better than my car.

Burns 23 gallons of diesel per hour so on a 12 hour day it makes my wages look pretty cheap.
