October Review

October shaped up to be a month as full as every other. A few trips to utilize the Canadian Health Care System (Bow Down and Kiss the Earth), observing that my anesthetist looks more like Alfred Newman than Dr. Kildare, hearing a voice relay test results while registering zero to one consciousness, listening to strangers tell their unsolicited sordid medical histories, decisions about what colour henna to try next, waiting in the dark for Buff to get off work at The Chicken Place while observing the same gorgeous cat dumpster dive night after night and phone calls - phone calls from a particularly articulate English teacher discussing teen boys and how they function socially in a classroom setting - researching Boomers and something she called "hot writing" - I was tempted to ask her, her age. And too, there were the usual bevy of refrigerator messages -
"gone to town"
"gone to work"
"gone to school"
"no food in this stupid fridge"
"out of peanut butter"
"I need to see the dentist"
"call California Auntie"
"call One Old Man"
"call the English Teacher"
"call The Home"
"need gas money"
"ps love you"
"sign this-->"
I also made for the first time ever, a tuna fish pizza at Buff's request, of which I thought would surely make me barf, but honestly, once I got it past my nose, it was delicious.

Tuna pizza? Really? I made chicken pizza that we all really liked.. never thought about tuna pizza. :)

Throw some corn on with that tuna, and maybe a squirt or two of mayonnaise, and you'll have the perfect Japanese pizza!
