my sweet sweet lily!
Nov. 9, 1999! I’ll never forget it! My sweet little Lily came into my life! Sadly, she left it too soon. It was then I realized … Lily’s the only hope/reason I have for heaven’s existence … and I ain’t fucking joking! As I said before, if it does exist, and when my time comes … I’ll be barreling through, pushing ALL family members aside who went before, wanting to greet me, looking for her, wanting to snatch her in my arms letting her plant those doxie-lapping-kisses all over my mug like she always did! Speaking of heaven – afterlife … November 9th is also the day one of greatest geniuses of this place we call EARTH was born … Carl Sagan! And I leave you (along with a pic of my Lily) with one of his many great quotes, and this one in particular, pertaining to heaven/afterlife!

Can’t get over how cool the Breeze app is!! I’ve had it/have been using it for quite some time now … that’s another thing, you don’t use it/do anything – it just is/exists! Right now, am def feeling the pressure achieving my daily goals – I’m currently on a 46 days in a row roll!

I LOVE my new kitchen, the whole place kinda rocks! New stainless steel fridge, new cabinets, counter-top, island, sink & faucet, above stove microwave, new backsplash, new bar stools … but the star of the show is a new gas stove!! My first time cooking w/ gas too. In fact I had a maiden meal all planned out, I wanted pasta w/ either braised/simmered oxtails, or veal shanks … but grocery store deals dictated otherwise, so it’s pasta w/ sausages & meatballs. Not too shabby a second fiddle! Oh, true story – wanted to serve my inaugural meal w/ a Barolo … and a couple days ago allowed myself a final budgetary indulgence. It was a front of the line, membership benefits I saw in my inbox, a limited release Barolo. Perfect timing! I pounced, and if any’s left, the rest of you plebes can search ‘n seek LCBO’s inventory, when it’s finally released to the general public. I payed the same price, $49.95/bottle (plus only $15 shipping) for the 2 bottles I bought. Oh, speaking of indulgences, I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my next to last one … that one should arrive anytime soon. Perhaps, another blogpost, lol?!
Ok, mostly pics, few words – better, eh? A couple of notes about my gas range. Of course we all know (even if you don’t own one, never have used one), the best feature is immediate heat. I love that. But, my fave new thing to get used to, is not only the incremental heat that is available, but unlike other types of ranges w/ burners that continually shut off, trying to moderate cooking temps – gas ranges don’t … there’s never that lull, the simmer/sizzle never stops. I LOVE that!! As promised, pics …
… yep, a sucker for sweet pussy!!
Buckle up, this one’s a doozy! It all began when I was working in Leeds Grenville a few months back. When it rains, we don’t work … so I planned to venture for a 1K walk to a local car dealership. Thing though, it was raining full throttle with no let-up. I even asked the front desk if anyone had an umbrella, or if there was one in lost and found. None. So sitting in what constitutes a lobby, just called to chat. Turns out, they didn’t even have a vehicle that I was looking for on lot. Sales woman was friendly enough, we chatted for 20-30 minutes, I gave her my number in case anything popped up. Later back at home when I had free time, I’d drive to dealerships looking for my car. None, again! So, I took proactive measures and called her, she vaguely remembered me, but now I enlisted her to help me find my car. We communicated via email, text, phone calls (I never met the woman), and she indicated to me after a location search, that in all of Canada, there were only 6 to be had!! Can you imagine? I knew they were hard to find, but ONLY six?! We kept communicating/negotiating for a month … oh, and this is a valuable lesson to new car buyers. It’s always good practice to do this, you’re under no obligation, and you gain valuable experience, so when you are serious, it’s like second nature. I eventually whittled her down to $775/month (if I had everything my way) for 5 years w/$5700 down. She texted me one day, apologizing about the mixup she had w/ her manager. Her last words were “I’m sorry”. Worked out good, I was done anyways … what the motherfuck was I thinking? Was crazy expensive to begin with, but shit, how stupid am I? I woulda committed myself solely on getting a great deal?!
Next came John, he was my VW man. I researched the new 2015 Golf TDI extensively, so when I called about getting insurance for my chettychevy I was thrown for a loop when I found out I had to give up my first born … or $3400/year! Are you fucking nuts?? Since, I had my insurance agent on the line, and since it took a shit-load of time garnering a simple quote for my shit-box, asked about the Golf … $3200 he said! Was right then and there, I knew I was selling the beater! John and I were good to go, we emailed, texted, talked (met too). Went in for a test drive, man-oh-motherfucking-man … that ride was SWEET!! We worked out quotes, I had everything written down that I wanted; the tint, the winter tires on separate alloys. Everything! We planned on me coming in on Wednesday. I did … was prepared to drop my AMEX on his desk and put in an offer. I also knew, the availability of my car; colour & options would take a few weeks to source, or wait to be built. Perfect. I arrived at 11:45 am, the receptionist told me he starts work at 12:00 … I bolted. I actually got a text from him a few minutes later as I was driving saying he’d be there in 5 minutes, and to please come back if I could (she called/texted him obviously). Ok, here was this particular deal I had in the works; $640/month … but get this, for four years instead of five … plus, w/ only $2900 down! Great deal … BUT, once again, what the fuck was I thinking? I did call to tell him I wasn’t coming back, not now at least … the timing wasn’t right. I told John he was my VW man, and he still is. If my world turns again, I’ll be back to see him!
OK, so still without a sweet ride, went back to where it all began. I had an affinity for Saab since the 9-3 was introduced in 1999. I’d shamelessly visit dealerships back then with nary a hope of purchasing. The salesmen knew this, yet they entertained me nonetheless. After a relentless search, I found this beauty. You can find these last-of-the-batch-hatchbacks selling anywhere from $2,000 – $3500 (much more for convertibles, Viggens)! Mine wasn’t cheap, but it’s sweet-pristine. And, get this; w/ taxes, all in … was hundreds LESS than the downpayment I was willing to put down on the first vehicle. AND, MINUS $775/month for five years to boot! Whoa, holy fuck! Finally, I KNEW what I was thinking!!
GODDAMN … how good does that look? And on another cold as fuck winter day? Can’t be beat!
This meal was precipitated perusing my local neighbourhood grocery store’s flyers, FORTINOS to be precise … when this caught my eye (on the back page no less) …
Now, I’ve never bought oxtail before, never cooked with it, never gave it a second thought … really was never on my recipe radar!! Seeing it on sale gave me the push, the incentive I needed. Knew that I wanted to utilize it in a pasta dish, immediately ran a few thoughts through my mind on how I’d go about it … then I googled ideas, and the funny thing is what I envisioned in my brain on doing in the first place, before I even started researching, was EXACTLY a recipe I found (the other one was very, very close as well, slight differences only) … great minds I guess, lol. Looks great packaged eh? Was so excited when I…
