Day 13 of 56: A bad food metaphor

This is going to be another one of those posts that don’t have a theme, just a stream of consciousness.

Today I didn’t get much of anything done, to the surprise of exactly none. Deep Space 9 marathon continued, and given my lifelong attraction to TV I just kind of kept watching it, playing my mobile game, and just did nothing.

Turnip ran out of his prescription food this morning, I only had a little bit left. Thankfully I stocked up on Friskie’s wet food and he loved that, so until the doctor approves the shipment he’s just going to have to eat that.

For lunch lately I’ve been eating an everything bagel with chive and onion cream cheese. Chive and onion cream cheese is the bomb and where has it been my whole life?!

Trying to work on this task for my business ethics course and I just can’t seem to get into it. Maybe it’s the TV playing in the background. Maybe it’s because the topic is so dry. I just need to get this task done and then I’m technically finished with the term, only 3 months left. I’ve almost reached my loan limit so the sooner I get this task submitted and passed, the sooner I can finish the last few classes before the end of the term. I’ve been going to school for almost 10 years, I just want my Bachelor’s. I just want the piece of paper!

I made tacos for dinner last night, so tonight all I had to do was reheat a little of it. When one of my old roommates moved out, he moved in with a guy who didn’t have a microwave, so everything they needed to heat or reheat was done on the stove or the oven. I didn’t understand how you could just not have a microwave, they’re essential! But now that I’ve lived alone for 2 years (that doesn’t seem right…) I get it. Microwaves are like shotguns: they’re going to just blast through and get the job done. Reheating on the stove or in the oven is like a sniper rifle, you have much more control. That’s a terrible metaphor, I know, but I can’t think of anything else. Bottom line is if you reheat something on the stove you can tweak and make improvements to get the result you want. Like reheating the taco meat: just add a little water to the meat, stir, cover so it heats everything, stir, and add more spices if you want. Once the excess water steams away, you’re left with beautiful taco meat.

Dang it, I’m hungry again.

The only downside of reheating things on the stove is now you have So Much More Dishes To Do. I’m already terrible at doing the dishes so it becomes a problem. Though I will say that since I’m stuck at home all day now, I am getting a little better. I still need to find my groove on cleaning up the rest of this depression den, but since I started getting better at keeping the kitchen clear it’s been helping to motivate me.

Also, dang, I really need to figure out how to make my own GIFs. There’s so many that I can’t find for specific things. Like the GIF above, I wanted the one where Shin says “I’m so hungry my tummy’s gonna eat itself. Now I know why models are such bitches.” I say that all the time! I need a GIF of it!

A’ight, peace out, Cub Scouts.
