I'm giving you a pound of carrots: what are your plans for them?

Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

With "1" being "not at all" and "10" being WHOOP DEE DOO, how excited are you usually about visiting a museum shop?

We've got leftover salsa from a party last night. What shall I do with it?

I'm giving you a pound of carrots: what are your plans for them?
A pound huh? First, I'll take a couple aside to make carrot muffins. I'll then split the rest up in two batches. One to be pre-cooked whole that I then will use in a number of ways, including salads or just by themselves (I have nothing against raw carrots but my teeth aren't too keen.
The rest will be sliced up and used in either a stir-fry are a side for my next meal.


Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?
Undoubtedly it has. For one, I have managed to break a couple of really bad/expensive habits along the way, mostly out of the lack of availability. Also, due to fortunate timing, I went through a bit of a medical ordeal near the start of the pandemic (unrelated) which has forced me to think on my feet a little bit and to think of tomorrow more than I did in the past. I'm far healthier right now than I was a year ago, let me tel you. There have been negatives as well of course, but mostly positive I'd say.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?
Tough call. I'm fine with both, but on a purely amateur level. Push come to shove I think I'd have more creative fun with the protractor.

With "1" being "not at all" and "10" being WHOOP DEE DOO, how excited are you usually about visiting a museum shop?
Probably around a 5. I have a very visual memory so the actual visit of the museum and its highlights remains ingrained in my feeble mind for a long time. I would go to the museum shop mostly to look for souvenirs for others (what a strange habit, they haven't been there so,
why would they really care?) and look for surprising novelties.


We've got leftover salsa from a party last night. What shall I do with it?
If you're really stuck, you can ship it to me. I'll take care of it one way or another. If you want to keep it, maybe throw it in to a stir-fry or something?

I guess you'd get the impression that I'm big on stir-fries but I'm not really. It's just my way of using up loose ends from my fridge and pantry. No waste I say.

Not at all.

Compass would bring more joy but a good GPS device even more.

8.5 .. it could be more or less depending on the venue.

Roast them with thickly sliced Haloumi. When cooked add Canelli beans mixed with lemon juice and zest along with some rocket.

I've become even more comfortable with just a small circle of people.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor? Not bothered

With "1" being "not at all" and "10" being WHOOP DEE DOO, how excited are you usually about visiting a museum shop? Usually an 8 then sliding down to a 1 because of overpricing.

Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?

yes.

part of it: i just went simplify, simplify, simplify. i rediscovered the joys of just hangin with my sister or my son, watching old grade-zee sci fi movies or seeing how many cats i could get to sleep on top of me. it's too easy to get distracted by extraneous bullrap.

another part of it: before the pandemic, my basic attitude was fucque assholes. does anyone think there is one gotdamn thing they can do to me? does anyone think i would flinch if someone held a gun to my head?

then the pandemic hit, and i kept lookin at the three family members i had left. and yep, i was terrified. i got in constant fights lettin any single one of em out of the door. so yeah. covid definitely represented something that could be done to me. sigh.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

compass, for sure. see john donne, "a valediction forbidding mourning".

ohhhh, 11. i LOVE museum shops. i ran into patrick stewart at the met's shop. i mean, literally ran into him. whammmm. he was so nice about it.

I'm giving you a pound of carrots: what are your plans for them?

No doubt, MY WIFE will have some strange use for them. Perhaps a carrot pie or some other Baltic delicacy. I'll ask her what she wants me to make with them.

Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?

It has reinforced my misanthropy and general regret that I must live amongst other humans. It has not changed me, no. I also don't understand people who say things will "never be the same." They never were the same, were they?

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

Oh, definitely a compass. I have a good sense of cardinal and ordinal directions when I'm home (I'm facing northeast now) but when I'm in the UK I'm absolutely hopeless.

With "1" being "not at all" and "10" being WHOOP DEE DOO, how excited are you usually about visiting a museum shop?

A 5, I suppose. My feelings are invariably informed by the knowledge that MY WIFE is about to spend an extraordinary wad of cash on cards and suchlike.

I ate it for lunch. It was actually hot!

Roast em, drizzle with olive oil and a bit of salt. There you go.

Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?

I don't think it has permanently changed me, but it has had an impact on some of my behaviours. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have stopped drinking for the first five months of this year if I hadn't ramped it up to extremely excessive levels last year, which I'm fairly certain happened because of being locked down with nothing else to do. I can't see going back to that sort of reckless consumption again, mainly because I haven't missed hangovers one goddamn bit, but I'm sure I'll get drunk again at some point.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

Are you talking geometry compass or a navigational compass? Either way I'd take one over a protractor any day. Geometry compasses are good for stabbing things.

3, maybe. I'll go have a browse, but it's nothing to look forward to.

Hey how did you know my Mandoline was delivered today. Sadly I've got no carrots, tomorrows list. I would take a bunch for a stir fry or throw them in curry. otherwise salad.

I’d make soup but if I had a juicer I would juice them with apples and beets.

I hope I never take for granted my activities outside my home. I was totally fine staying home for the longest but I do enjoy socializing and I realised I missed it in a bad way.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

I have a good sense of direction so a protractor would be fun.

A 5. I enjoy some of the cool things they sell but as someone said, they are overpriced so it really depends on what it is.

I'm getting on the bike, sloping on down to the Donkey Sanctuary and giving me some donkey love. Those cheeky buggers love them carrots.

Not in any way. I'm still the same loveable rascal I was before.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?
I think protractor. Its the multi-tool of the mathematical world. You can measure, slice vegetables and at a push kill some shit with the pointy end.

Fry it up with some new potato, add a little coriander, mushrooms and aubergine. Taste. Chuck it in the bin.

Slice and boil them , then make a nice parsley sauce to bathe them in. Lovely.

I don't know about permanently, but it has changed how we live day to day. Maybe once everything is open properly , and there aren't masks everywhere I might feel like my old self, but at the moment I do feel very different.

maybe not a museum shop, but an art gallery shop would be lovely.

Wortelstamp! It's winter so a typical carrot and potato mash with bacon, pepper, mustard and gravy will do the cold citizen a world of good.

It definitely made me aware that all politicians are incompetent nincompoops. Utter failures to acknowledge and act on the pandemic in the beginning, now end to grandiose posturing and not a single ounce of understanding.

Give them to someone who likes carrots (I do but not especially)

Do you feel that living through a pandemic has permanently changed you in any way? And if so, what way is that?

Oh yeah. It's made realise that putting important things off isn't really an option - if you want to do it, do it as quickly as is possible. ESPECIALLY around relationships - and in a totally soppy way, yes I mean telling those you love, that you do. Often.

Were (or are) you happier with a decent compass or a nice protractor?

Compass. I had to think what a protractor even looked like.

7. I like some museum merch, even if I know it's overpriced, because sometimes it's the only way you can get it and it's a thing to evoke memories later on.

This has me confused. Did you originally mean 'a pair of compasses'? I always liked them for some reason whilst I never found much use for a protractor. And I don't think I've ever used a compass for anything useful, either.

I quite like them but rarely buy anything. They're full of lovely looking things, most of which would remain untouched for years and just gather dust if I bought one and brought it home. I have a Picasso calendar on my office wall from the Picasso museum here in Barcelona, and a mug with some medieval depiction of Jesus on it, from the National Art Museum of Catalonia. That's all.

We've got leftover salsa from a party last night. What shall I do with it?

I don't know what 'salsa' is in this context. In Spain, it's the generic name for sauce so there are many varieties. If it were some kind of dip and it were left over from a party I'd probably throw it out because I wouldn't have got round to putting it in the fridge.
