Black Bean Salad
I don't like getting diabetic testing supplies from the only place in which my insurance will cover 100% of the cost (rather than 80% after a $280 deductible), which is not medicare, despite the commercial.
I have made calls to go to a diabetes education center and wait for someone to call me back.
In the meantime, i do online research and a bought a big ole old fashioned book.
I require more thought on what to eat. Gone are the days of just picking something up or going out to eat lunch almost every day.
Today, it's black bean tomato corn salad. In a popcorn bowl.
Can't say i have a recipe, exactly. I just microwaved a bag of frozen corn, added a can rinsed black beans, some sweet peppers, some celery, green onions, parsley, grape tomatoes, the juice of a couple of limes, some dill, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar (which is reported to help lower the impact of sugar rich vegetables for diabetics), some Braggs liquid amino (to replace salt) then stuck it in the fridge to marinate.
Not sure what to serve it with... but, i may have to consider eating meat so i don't carb load as much and still get my protein.

I am happily surprised for the first time since i started working for the WNYDDSO, to have co-workers that respect me. Enough to talk amongst themselves to say, "hey, she's having a hard time, what can we do to help her out... and how about if we step back a bit and let her figure out her own way".
Wow. Is this what it feels like to not be in highschool?

Don't Beat Up Girls
Today, less than an hour ago, i was walking to my car when i saw two teenagers standing by their bikes. His was on the ground. She was still straddling hers. He was standing with her tire between his legs and his hands on her handlebars. He was screaming profanities at her. She looked at me, looked away, he turned to look at me, told me to fuck off, then went back to his screaming.
I put my recycled weggies bag in my prius (just trying to show what a fucking neo -hippie i am these days, i even became a member of the co-op. shit, i would have beaten myself up when i was 17.. but i digress), and when i looked up, he was slapping her around and punching her on the side of her head. She was just trying to block his fists. She looked at me and mouthed "help", so i called 911.
Of course, Weggies security was on lunch and could not be found. So i flagged down an orange shirt helping hands dude.
She tried to explain to me, and i told her she didn't need to, because no matter who's dick she sucked, he still should not be wailing on her in a grocery store parking lot. When i said that she cried. I hugged her and told her she deserves to be with someone who will treat her with respect. Simple lessons.
And ya know what? I don't care what kinda crack whore she might be, no one deserves to be beat up by someone 3 times their size.
I stayed with her until weggies security was with her and they said the cops were on the way.
He was standing out front of a bodega on Amherst when i drove by. Pussy.

I think that as far as meat goes there are many humanitarian and more sustainable options at least available if not expensive. Guess it probably should be expensive but the price of it makes it much easier to buy the not so great stuff.
