Weeknotes 36 - Honk to express annoyance
- I’m a Brexit prepper. The last time it seemed like we were going to crash out of the EU I made sure I had lots of toilet paper, lemsip, tinned beans, almond milk, the laundry liquid I like, nice toiletries, olive oil, coffee, and other little luxuries. And here we go again, so I’m starting to build a stash of everyday things I would miss if they were stuck at the border.
- Brexit forced me to learn how to preserve freshly roasted coffee beans beyond the 2-3 weeks when they’re fresh and taste nice. You can freeze coffee, but the trick is to not allow it to attract moisture as it defrosts, because that will mess with the flavour. When I get fresh beans, I portion them into resealable bags, and let them fully defrost before opening. Now I don’t have to worry about coffee going stale if I don’t drink it fast enough. Another bonus is that now I have two to three types of beans in my freezer to choose from. #freezerlifestyle
- My new pet peeve is articles stating that “climate change is worse than you think”. It’s not. It’s exactly as bad as I think. Though somehow after reading Solnit’s Hope in The Dark I find it hard to despair or get dejected. Hope is power.
- I am studying for a theory test. What do you do if a pedestrian is crossing the road very slowly? Repeatedly honk at them to express your annoyance? Rev your engine to hurry them up? Based on the behaviour of other road users my guess it that both of these are correct answers. Fingers crossed for my passing the test the first time.
- I love being a goose.
