Today marks a weird spot on the calendar for me. It’s one of those landmarks that really doesn’t mean anything, other than to illustrate the weirdness of time and how we feel it. As of today, my son Gordon has been without his mother longer than he was with her. The length of time Amanda has been gone is now longer than the length of time we were a family of three. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but that dangblasted calendar tells me it’s almost three years. I have not said a word about it to G, but tonight, for the first time in a long time, he pulled out the Missing Mummy book for bedtime. Today was my last day in broadcasting for a while, as far as I can tell. I spent the past five years as Program Director at Newstalk 1290 CJBK in London, Ontario. And in recent years, I was also the noon-hour show host, afternoon news anchor, a commercial voice guy, TV news promo voice guy, and more. Also in the past five years, I’ve bought a house, endured renovation
Video preservation and personal history are the current mission for London, Ontario broadcaster Scott Simpson.
You tossed out the best part. This is the "added protein" from Monsanto. But why anyone would buy broccoli....ReplyDelete
Are you actually freaked out by this? A bug on/in something that grows on the ground?ReplyDelete
Oh, I expect that there will be, y'know, surprises in earth-based noms. Just not after they were picked up by me, put in a bag, and kept in the fridge for four days. Amanda was actually the freaked-out one, 'cuz she thought it was a curled-up brown leaf...and only realized it was a "snail" (it's not a snail) when it was in her hand. And then freaked out a little more when it was apparent that the thing wasn't dead. And maybe laying eggs in our dinner.ReplyDelete
Protein, yeah. True. As they say at Microsoft, "it's not a bug -- it's an undocumented feature".
This isn't tiny, btw. It's about an inch long.ReplyDelete
NO THANKS. ew.ReplyDelete
If I was shopping at Jungle Congo foods, ok but not at a big store where I expect my overpriced broccoli to be bug free.
I bought broccoli from the StoopidStore near work the other day.
