A couple of things from the weekend and not..

  • I will finish the series " On Being Chinese" eventually. Don't worry, it isn't going to remain me griping about being Chinese.
  • sometimes...a lot of the time... I don't know how to be there for people who are hurting. I often pretend that whatever is going on, isn't going on, so that I don't need to deal with the root issue. I don't know how to comfort people.
  • I made a really amazing sandwich today. It excited me very much. Homemade guacamole, sundried tomatoes, vegetarian turkey ham and jalapeno havarti cheese on sunflower grain bread.
  • Today, we (Sara Whitfield and I) travelled from Scarborough to Union Station, up to the Weston and Jane area, and then I headed downtown to Jarvis and Shuter. All in all, it was about 3 hours of commuting. I was 45 minutes late for an appointment I had downtown. I surfaced from Osgoode station and just as I got up the stairs, I saw the streetcar drive past the bus stop. So, I ran to the next stop like a madwoman, overtook the streetcar and managed to get on. All the while, I prayed to be filled with the Spirit. Commuting and tardiness make me cranky. But who knew I could run that fast?
  • I am a huge chicken. And amazingly scared of rejection. This does not bode well for support-raising.Here is my sad face. I can't remember why I was sad. I'm probably sad because I'm the world's biggest chicken.
  • saturday meat= morning: breakfast sausage from tim horton's
    • lunch: chicken curry
    • dinner: all you can eat korean barbecue
    • sunday lunch: chicken burger
  • after eating all that meat, I seriously felt ill. I have often toyed with the idea of becoming vegetarian. Throughout high school, most of my friends were vegetarian. My current roommate is vegetarian, my best brown girlfriend is vegetarian. Additionally, I have a very good vegan friend, and a vegetarian rock star friend. Even before meeting these people, I thought about becoming vegetarian. However, I have purposely chosen to be a carnivore, for reasons more than just the fact that I enjoy chicken and seafood. (In the interest of saving space, you can ask me about this on your own). Anyways, i digress. After eating so much meat, I felt sick to my stomach. It wasn't a food-poisoning kind of ill. It was a stomach-screaming-bloody-murder for putting it to such abuse. Thus, I have decided to become vegetarian for the month. Just for the month. To rectify the abuse I have put my stomach through.
  • here's a question for you....
    • what is pride?

Son of Man a dit...

vegetarian months are good. Spinach is your best friend...good for a system clean. I am so sorry for making you late for your appointment. I hate being late. I know how you must have felt...silly me, "yeah, my parents are leaving in like 15 minutes.." not.
Tip: You'll never have an upset tummy after eating too much broccoli! Unless you're dipping it in cheese crap...anywho, I like the fact that you are sticking with your carivorous convictions. Very UNflaky of you...
