CARROTS

Sitting here eating my crappy dinner I just made. The carrots are too crunchy – but I haven’t cooked anything like this for 3 years – such is a life of poverty. I used to be content at just cracking open a can of peas, adding creamy salad dressing to it – and eating it. Now, possibly ironically, the food from the Food Bank has gotten me cooking. They gave me carrots and onions and potatoes, so I looked up how to sauté potatoes and got an adequate video by Gordon Ramsay. When I was living at Jane Street, I wouldn’t have been able to cook. The people with whom I lived disgusted me too much that I couldn’t even cook in the kitchen! (And I don’t want any of you FUCKERS to come to me and say that I shouldn’t be disgusted by certain people. FUCK YOU and your stupid view of LOVING everyone UNCONDITIONALLY. What a load of crap that is!!! And don’t even change the subject to some shitty personal attack and say I’m being too emotional).

I also wanted to add the carrots and the onions to the potatoes. Initially I wanted to sauté all of them together, but my pan wasn’t big enough (there were a lot of potatoes). It called for olive oil, but all I had was vegetable oil. I skipped the tablespoon or so of butter with the potatoes, but I bought the rosemary. I forgot to chop the rosemary, but overall the potatoes are tasty. I simply cut up the onion, cut up the carrots somewhat (after cleaning them), and then sautéed them together in the same pan the potatoes were in. I added salt and pepper to both the potatoes and the other veggies. It seems like the dish is missing something. Originally I had thought of putting the stuff on toast with herby cream cheese – but I forgot about that and the carrots are too big and crunchy anyways to enjoy with toast. The hardness of the carrots would DESTROY the toast!

I’ve had too many carrots today anyways. I buy baby carrots from the grocery store and then partition them into sandwich bags. There is usually too many carrots per bag. What happened today was I ate a whole bag of carrots and then of course had stomach pain. Whatever. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have more self control. I thought of putting less carrots in a bag and replacing the half of carrots with celery – since I eat celery and carrots daily. Carrots are good for eye health and celery – well, celery is a vegetable so it’s obviously good for you. More specifically it has fibre. Dieticians are CRAZY about fibre.

ADVERTISING A SERVICE ON KIJIJI…

So I’ve gotten a reply to an Energy Healing ad I posted on Kijiji.  I’m happy about that.  I wrote back asking why the woman was interested and am awaiting a response.

Update: Bitch didn’t respond!

Went to the library today and it took the usual amount of time to find a book.  Forever!!! I don’t understand why there are so many mystery books.  

Are THAT MANY people into death and dying?  

…Like all mystery books are centred around a murder or murders of some sort.  I used to be keen on reading Agatha Christie, however now I would need data on my phone to be able to access an online dictionary so I could decipher Christie’s ‘Old English’.

It hasn’t snowed that much here.  I kind of like the snow when I’m promoting on my corner because it may make me appear mysterious – in a good way.

So thankfully I went out to do SOME promotion work today.  Got my YouTube video done and my poem.  Went to buy some groceries, and noticed baby carrots were not even $2 for a bag.  Looking forward to buying them regularly in the future.

(March 8th ’19 Update: I now eat carrots regularly – several times a week).

GOOD MEMORY (of before the BS)…

So I went out to sell today.  It was successful in the fact that I only drank one ounce of whisky before selling and I didn’t drink anything before I left for home.  

I’m kinda annoyed that it’s just going to get colder and colder here in T.O, but there’s nothing I can do about it  other than wearing warmer clothes.  

It’s my birthday in about a week and my parents agreed to make a dinner for me.  My sister and her kids might show up too.

I’m glad I had a thought of buying carrots today.  

I’ve been worried about my eyesight, since I have to wear glasses.  I used to buy baby carrots and take them to the library with me.  I used to eat very healthy (except for not getting enough leafy greens for a while) by taking cheese sticks, and custom mixed nuts, dates, and carrots with me during the day.  I’m looking forward to restarting that habit, but I’m worried about the cost off the nuts…
