Unsettling Healthy Advice
I am drinking Sunrype Fruit and Veggie drink. Every glass gives you two Canada Food Guide servings of fruit and vegetable. It’s full of yummy goodness. I am suddenly an advertisement. I apologize.
See, it all started earlier today with my friend “nameless.” She used to be a socially corrupting influence. Suddenly she is full of so much good advice and health tips that I’m the baddy. I still smoke. Still eat meat. Still use drugs. Still eat junk food from the whole spectrum of junk food. Have fatty foods.
She is getting skinnier and passing her clothes on to me.
I am beginning to long for the good healthy lifestyle. She is rubbing off.
And somehow she knows me better than I wish she did. It’s kind of funny. Today we were talking about a certain someone and she kept saying to me “You still want her, I KNOW you still want her. Don’t you? Don’t you?!” and I was all cowering in the corner saying “Get out from inside my head!”
FILM FEST SWAG: I got a pair of boxer shorts from the Rendevous with Madness film festival in Toronto (where my newest tape Love & Numbers played) that has a fish on the butt with the words Nice Bass over it. If you ask me nice I’ll bend over and let you see my Bass.
So I went to the store today where I usually buy myself a Coke. But I’ve been hearing more and more scary things about the Coca-cola company these days. So I got this juice, this special ultra healthy juice.
I am bad about vegetables. I eat them so rarely. I like them. I know they’re better for the world if you eat vegetables. But why eat vegetables when you could have BACON!!!!!!
Truthfully I tire of bacon.
I have to clean the bathroom before twelve o’clock or I turn into a pumpkin.
I have the right shape to be a pumpkin.
I tire of my body shape. I wish my stomach had real muscles, not these piddly bands of fiberous tissue.
I tire of my life. I am stuck in a rut in a specific part of my life and it’s really starting to wear on me. I’m tired of being messy. I’m tired of being unhealthy. I’m tired of my body. I’m tired of smoking and doing drugs. I’m tired of being paranoid. I’m tired of having no spiritual focus to my life.
It’s crunch time and I am procrastinating. I should be working on papers. Instead I cast my words into the internet void.
Say hello to the so-called world, words.

Never a void – words always find someone, sometime. Personally, I like your style.
It is I formerly known as Nameless, returning to nag once more, I know I said I’d stop but I can’t resist. Juice isn’t that great. It’s better to eat the whole fruit or veggie then you’re getting all the good stuff. Juice seems healthy, but it’s bad to drink too much of it, and most brands aren’t even worth drinking. Pasteurization kills vitamins…so if you’re gonna drink juice, drink unpastuerized, otherwise you might as well drink poop..I mean pOp!
Water is your best friend! Your body loves you when you feed it water!
All I can say is: In the immortal words of Oscar Wilde “Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes them to live. And unselfishness is letting other people’s lives alone, not interfering with them. Selfishness always aims at creating around it an absolute uniformity of type. Unselfishness recognises infinite variety of type as a delightful thing, accepts it, acquiesces in it, enjoys it. It is not selfish to think for oneself. A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. It is grossly selfish to require of one’s neighbour that he should think in the same way, and hold the same opinions. Why should he? If he can think, he will probably think differently. If he cannot think, it is monstrous to require thought of any kind from him. A red rose is not selfish because it wants to be a red rose. It would be horribly selfish if it wanted all the other flowers in the garden to be both red and roses.”
Selfishness is thinking only about oneself. A Rose that points out to another flower that the fertilizer that bloom be chugging down is less than healthy is showing concern and disseminating information not trying to control behaviour.
Get the reactionary stick out of your ass Thirza and write something new. I love you but you’re pissing me off. I wrote something about selfishness in my blog that relates to you a couple days ago, something that’s bothered me for a long time…something I should have talked to you about before but never did. Maybe we could talk about it when you back. Or, you can email me or call, I dunno… Anyhow, I hope you’re having a fun time in toon town. Clivey’s crawling around on me, he says hi.
