Beardy Carrot

The life and times of a man who thinks he is a carrot


Ask me anything  

Is there a collective noun for spiders?

Last night, I found Cleo going ballistic in front of my bedroom entertainment center, trying to catch something. This is very un-Cleo-like behavior, as she generally ignores bugs, so I figured that it must be a lizard, frog, or even a mouse. I caught a glimpse of what I thought was a frog disappearing under the entertainment center, but when using my phone’s camera to check underneath it, all I found was dust and cat hair. I thought I saw a pair of eyes, but after clearing it out with a dust mop, there was nothing there.

Three hours later, after I had been in bed trying to fall asleep for about forty minutes, I heard a thump… and then another, coming from the area of Cleo’s water dish. Cleo was still in bed with me, so I got up to investigate… and sure enough, I found a frog that had become one with the dust bunnies. I have no idea how a frog that large found its way inside, or why it would want to; it’s frog mating season right now, it should be finding a pond and gettin’ its froggy groove on.

Florida, we need to talk… I just want to take a shower. Is that too much to ask?

When life gives you puree, make…. mousse?

I was juicing some apples and carrots, and noticed that some of my plums had unpleasant soft spots. Since I would need to clean the juicer anyway, I decided to remove the pits and feed them through. Rather than any juice flowing out, a purple glob appeared in the spout, but didn’t move. Opening the juicer, I found the area where the juice is held before it flows out filled with a plum puree.

I decided to make it into a mousse, and topped it with whipped cream and cookie pieces. Something is only a failure if you let it be; you learn from it, and salvage what you can. In my case, I got a really nice dessert. :D

As I thought, carrot juice really does need some kind of filler added to it. Maybe apple juice, or just water. This is five carrots put through the juicer, which made maybe a cup of juice. It tastes fantastic, but may be a little strong.

I really should’ve known better than to toss my pants on the bed. Anything that gets left on the bed, particularly clothing or plastic bags, is an instant Cleo magnet.
